    This is my first official kitbash attempt. Perceptor was a favorite of mine as a kid but I always thought he was kind of a wimp. I just read All Hail Megaton and, it reignited my like for this guy. I picked up a junker G1 Perceptor for cheap and decided to modernize him in a bit.

    So far I swapped out his thighs for full articulated ones.

    I really like the All Hail Megatron deisgn for perceptor, but the G1 figure is so blocky, I decided Im going to go with this perceptor for color scheme.

    Articulated Perceptor is usually a winner, and yours if already off to a great start!

    Thanks Guys

    Yup they are jetfires. They fit almost perfectly into the current Perceptor setup and they make him less blocky but still look like a telescope. Im still trying to figure whose forearms will look good on him. Any Suggestions?

    Yeah thats the plan. Im a little nervous about that one.
