    This project has taken me quite a while to complete and a lot of random TF parts taken from...
    Cybertron Longrack
    Universe Blaster
    Universe Dropshot
    Cybertron Mudflap
    Universe Prowl
    Universe Sideswipe
    Classics Starscream
    Cybertron Starscream
    Animated Bulkhead

    This is my interpretation of IDW Perceptor from All Hail Megatron.
    The chest piece is made from scratch using layered sheet styrene.
    Painted using satin finish enamels with just enough detail to fit within the standard classics/Universe line.
    All parts where stripped and sanded at the joints to prevent paint chipping.

    I wanted to paint the crosshairs on the eye piece, but It was just too small.

    The Graphic/symbol on the chest piece made in Adobe Illustrator, printed on photo paper then set behind clear styrene.

    This guy and his evil twin will be going on ebay this weekend, which will hopefully pay for my next project.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice! I love spotting all the different bots that were used for this in the design. It works really well!

    Heh. Good to know I'm not the only one who thought the Longrack legs just scream Perceptor. This is nice.

    I like both of these, highly creative. Have you considered any panel lining or a wash? Again, great work. Especially on the chestpiece and graphics.

    Thanks everybody, nice to knoww the hardwork was worth it.

    Yeah, I've been planning this ever since I got Galaxy force longrack, but its taken all this time to collect the other parts.

    It was the chest and waist area, so he has a lot of possability and the head can fold into the chest cavity.

    He's about the same height as classics prime. Slightly taller than Warbot.

    It was quite difficult to settle on the final paint apps, but in the end I wanted to keep it simple so it fit in with an off the shelf universe figure.
