    Greetings again, Radicons!
    Inspired by MagnusWave931´s excellent Scavengers, and since I already have a (unmodded) TR Krok, custom Crankcase and Spinister, I tried to emulate his take on Fulcrum. (first of all, sorry for my english, I'm not a native english speaker.

    First problem I found: There's no way I could acquire a shapeways head like the one used on custom Fulcrums I've seen (I bought from Shapeways once and the shipping costs elevated the price of the piece almost 300%). The project seemed finished before it started...

    Looking for parts in the junker bin for a project of Tf Prime I had in my mind, I found the head of a TR Perceptor I bought once... and I saw a little resemblance to the Scavenger character. So, let's do it....

    Sanded the central crest following the contour of the head, removed the titan master legs and put the back of a lego helmet I cut plus details (a little bit), used Zoids spare parts to make his earpieces (that in retrospective I think they may be a little bit big,) primed, painted it and glued the broken visor of a Transformers Prime Hot Shot and... voila!

    I'm going to use a TR Scourge to make the body, crossed fingers not to screw it.

    Comments, suggestions and criticisms are welcomed.
    Edit1: forgot to say that the radicon Grimlockimus also have some excellent Scavengers. I am using some of his ideas as inspiration.

    Thanks for the Shout out, so far I'm liking how your set of Scavengers are turning out. Plus you got to work on Crankcase before me lol. Good Luck on the Project!

    Whoa. If you hadn't told me what that Fulcrum head was made from, I'd have assumed it was a very high end 3D print.

    Great work.

    (And your English is fine - better than some of my fellow Americans...)

    I don't know yet, since I reversed the knees and I cut the wings to put them on his shoulders. I'm waiting the clear coat to cure before trying to transform him.

    And really don't care very much about his alt-mode, since he transformed just once in the comics and failed spectacularly (or did he?)
