Deception Reflector

I really miss the thrill of hacking up toys to create playing pieces, so today I thought I would scratch that itch. Three small Megatron keyrings are sent to the chop shop to be remade into Reflector, the Decepticon camera.
The great thing about these smaller Megatron figures is that they are just the right scale. Reflector was quite small and was always getting bullied by the other Decpticons.

Along with Reflector, I also made up some Autobot re-enforcements. These were great fun to make, I cut up the keyrings and mixed up their torsos. To this was added plasticard and bits off the Gaslands sprue.

 I decided this one with the shield would be called Spartan, so he got a head crest on his head to finish the look 

I do like this Autobots single optic, he looks quite insect like.

They look totally different when sprayed, much better.

The bots before they are undercoated.

UPDATE: well the Bots are finished. Their faces were tricky but we got there.

I went back and added some more details so they matched the original cartoon better.

They scale up well with the Seeker jets which is great.
