    The original G1 Perceptor having been voyager sized, but only getting deluxe figures for years now has always bugged me. And the only 3P voyager version was Planet X and it was a fair bit more than I wanted to spend. So, I made an alternative. And frankly, I can't figure out why HasTak didn't do this. This mold could have served well for a voyager scale Perceptor. G1 and even the TR Perceptor are triple changers (a microscope that becomes a tank-scope? This one is a tank! Period! ...and a jet), and this custom makes him a quintuple changer (although I'll admit the microscope mode is weak,. And the tank-scope is just plain ridiculous.... I keep my Transformers in 'bot mode anyway).
    Obviously this is a WIP. The only extra bit is a slightly altered Titan Master from the TR Optimus Prime leader train wreck, oops, I mean figure...
    So finally... IMG_20181107_074704.jpg IMG_20181107_074423.jpg IMG_20181107_074218.jpg

    The hardest part about these pics was getting RTS Perceptor to hold a pose...

    I enjoy the passive-aggressive tea in the desc. Also, great job! The Microscope mode actually looks pretty decent for a "Fan mode"! I like how you did the chest!

    Daaaaaamn that's creative! Well executed!

    ..and I think you need to give yourself more credit for that microscope mode. It's really, really clever!

    very nice Microscope mode!
    For the Tank mode, doesn't the base figure have a Tank mode already that you could Transform him into?

    Yep; the "scope-tank "is basically an Easter egg; the G1 figure as well as the TR Perceptor both have the third "scope-tank" mode, so I figured I would throw it in there too

    Well, never would've thought to make Megatron into Perceptor. Great idea!

    That is awesome! He looks great. Though I don't think any autobots want to look down the microscope if that is how Perceptor transforms. :D

    I'll admit, I kinda want to see original-tank and jet modes, just to see what they look like with this color scheme.

    Thats pretty dope. What if you 3d printed a scope/ barrel thing that plugged into the Titan master slot, it would work better than the stub.

    IMG_20181125_085905.jpg Here ya go, although I think it looks better as a bot, since the blue and red kinda get lost in the official alt modes.

    Huh. As a bot it's Perceptor but as a Jet he'd pass for Starscream!
