    Someone posted this picture of a custom made add-on Perceptor head. From what I heard, it was produced around the time the Takara Reissue Perceptor came out. Does anyone have any info about who made it, how much were they, and are they still available?

    I don't know who made it, but I have been looking for one for a while. I think the same guy also made a custom head for Orion Pax

    Yep. His ebay ID was "trabluedog" or something similar and went by "convoymagnus" on the Tformers boards.

    He did four different heads to go along with the then-new reissues:
    -Perceptor
    -Orion Pax
    -Ironhide
    -Ratchet

    Dude that is MY picture and MY Perceptor head.

    It was custom made, I bought it a couple of years ago. I don't think the guy is making them anymore and hasn't in a while.
    Here's some more pics:

    That's really nice. And it's a good time for him to come out of retirement!

    I wish this guy would come out of retirement, I can't wait to get my hands on the reissue, and he would look perfect with that head. ^_^

    I was lucky enough to get one of those Orion Pax ones about a year back. Love it!

    That's a clever idea but when I look at it I can't not see giant lips, and that really kills it for me. I just like to believe the visor on the toy is a battle mode function and can be retracted >_>.

    Yup, I got that one as well from the same guy, here are some pics of mine. I went a step further and put the Orion Pax Reprolabel set on mine too.

    The head looks neat, but I've always liked Perceptors features the way they have always been.

    Kind of looks like or reminds me of a remolded Devastator head, but I like it, I'd love to get one too.
