    Seeing @spoonman do an awesome take on Scamper reminded me I had one started a while back that I got distracted from, so I figured I'd dive back in.

    Made from Siege Red Alert, WfC Optimus and some bits from the parts bin. LOTS of cutting and fitting to get the legs and torso lined up, as well as getting the car sides to sit flush in alt mode.
    The pics make the front of the car seem out of alignment, but this is a WIP and the pins aren't driven in the entire way.
    He stands as tall as Impactor, but I always liked Scamper, so that isn't an issue for me.

    Still loads of work to go to get the alt mode more solid looking, but I figured I'd show off what I have so...

    I just realized how tall Impactor is.

    Excellent work!

    Small update: added a pelvis piece and some more to the side panels. Still need to detail those up a bit.

    But seriously, I hate to say it but he kinda looks like a duocon in bot mode. Alt-Mode could use some Un-"sci-fi"ing in the back, or "sci-fi"ing in the front. My two pence.

    I totally get what you mean. Every time I work on it I see a white part and a blue part.

    I am adding more stuff to blend the sides together more, plus it'll all be black when completed. That should help.

    Little black six-wheeled car that comes with Metroplex. Scamper, Sixgun and Slammer (a little tank without a bot mode) were all included with G1 Metro, and only Scamper was included with the Generations Titan (it's pictured in the shots in the first post).

    I like it. The altmode looks low-slung, fast, maneuverable, and dangerous. Just what Metroplex could use as a fast-response defender.
