SCAMPER is the small black car that lived inside the transforming city-robot 'Metroplex'.

For my classics deluxe-scaled version, I swapped the legs (so the thighs are backwards) to help differentate him from a regular Bumblebee figure and from my custom Goldbug. I also modified the bumper, and added some styrene work so the bumper doesn't look hollow when in Bot mode.

The doors pop off, and I used a bit from the Infinity War I set (red) to create the energon forearm blade assembly. I usually display him with his doors 'on' though.

Painted with Mr. Hobby matte black lacquer paint & Gunmetal, sealed with Mr. Spray UV Cut Super Clear matte.

To keep the black/black colorscheme from looking too monotonous, I used a metallic black on the windshield/windows, and a Citadel Gloss varnish on the bumpers, runners, and above the wheel hubs.

Thanks to the lacquer paint and proper sanding/prep there's zero paint rub after many, many Transformations.

The gun is from Fakebuster's Shapeways weapons, printed in SWF/polished. I dyed the material black, then superglued the scope & peg down. The gun was spray painted with the same automotive metallic black as the windshield.

The blue sword came from an Animated Arcee figure.

In hindsight, I wish I'd made this guy using a modded Classic Wheeljack , since the original Scamper was a bit lanky, and Classics 'Bee is anything but. Still, I really like how this stubby little guy turned out.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

It's an awesome custom but I was curious where the head came from. I just created a movie scamper by using the scout class Dune Runner figure. I am at a conflict because I want to call him Night Ops Dune runner or just call him Scamper.

An Armada Optimus Prime figure. There's multiple sizes/types of this figure, but it was the deluxe-sized version head I used here. Cheers.

I knew exactly who this was simply from the thumbnail. You did an awesome job! I loved playing with the G1 version as a child. He was so simple but for some reason I loved him. Thanks for sharing.
