    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 Shattered Glass Perceptor.
    I figured an evil version of Perceptor would pretty much take on the personality and look of G1 Shockwave. Cold, Calculating, Logical.
    A microscope just wasnt an evil enough alt mode for this mad scientist, he now transforms into a spark extractor!
    The chest piece is made from scratch using layered sheet styrene.
    Painted using satin finish enamels with just enough detail to fit within the Shattered Glass line.
    All parts where stripped and sanded at the joints to prevent paint chipping.

    Lazer scalples to cut through the chest plate of the toughest minicons!

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

    Thanks for looking.

    Something tells me that, even though this is good, you can do a better job. Shoot for the stars!!! In the meantime, very badass still. I would love to see this in black like Magnificus. Spark extractor, geniusly evil!...

    Despite the fact SG Perceptor already exists as Ehobby Magnificus, I love this take. Perhaps if he was black, as per the comics, it would look even better. The alt mode is excellent. Did you change the knobs on the arms from your original Perceptor?

    Thanks everyone.

    The reason he isnt black is becuase I always thought Magnificus as a seperate charachter in the G1 universe. And a black paint job would have been too easy.

    If I can collect the parts I may do one more as Magnificus.

    Nice, especially like the different face. Are you making a black diaclone version?

    Nice Job. I guess normally SG is black but I think seeing him in purple gives it a more evil appearance IMO. Great job
