    This is created from the oversized KO of Perfect Effect Scouting Force, modded to be more G1 toon accurate. I have also used parts from an oversized KO of G1 Reflector, such as camera lens and flash bulb. Partsforming is kept to a minimum; everything except the camera lens piece(s) is integral. It started as a minor repaint and has ended up as a Heavy/Scratch!

    WIP thread here

    I'm by no means a seasoned customiser (only two previous major projects) and I do this purely to fill gaps in my own collection, but I want to share my work with you guys. Enjoy!

    OK, so I am a bit confused... really am.

    I am not sure what is more incredible, the figures, or your pictures.

    E.P.I.C. Holy Shit. And the picture with TC is pure WIN!

    Thanks guys!
    Confused?! Don't worry bud, I haven't really invented mass shifting; that pic of the camera in Thundercracker's hand is a trick shot :wink:

    Nice work on these guys! Big improvements over the KO source version!

    Maybe I'm just over-tired, but that last picture with Thundercracker had me staring at it for way too long trying to figure out how you managed to shift so much scale between modes. Duh! :lol
