    Hello everyone, I'm new to this site but I've been posting on Sector 70 for a couple years. I wanted to share my latest custom with you, here's my take on perceptor. I started out wanting a G1 look but started leening more towards his apearance in FOC. The starting figure is obviously a WFC Megatron but I also used two different primes, ROTF Brawn, watch batteries an extending pen and a bunch of random stuff that fit. The gun is from a Gundam I adjusted and the head is from a Sideswipe that was modded to be Redalert that I changed to be Perceptor. This is my first time using styrene, actually thin rulers, they worked alright. There's a bunch of things I'll do differently if I try this one again, thanks for looking comments are apreciated.

    Clever usage of all the parts (especially Megs back flap for the observing tray) & the end result is really clean.

    I like it.

    That is VERY cool. Nice take on Perceptor. Kind of like a G1 pre-Earth mode.
