    I’ll be uploading alternate jet-mode and better pictures soon, just took some quick shots with a flash since natural light wasn’t available so images are a bit blurry. This is my 6” Titanium War Within Starscream re-paint to Skywarp since the line has been cancelled and the hope for a Skywarp seeker to go along with SS, Thundercracker, and Sunstorm is slim to none.

    Since I’m not a detailed painter and wanted to get this done fast, I just used standard acrylic paints for the purple, black and silver colors and then sprayed it with a semi-gloss coat to seal in the paint. It’s blotchy in some parts when I had to apply multiple coats in some sections but I’m happy to get this done. It’s actually pretty simple to take this toy apart, only around 8-10 screws to manage. So if you want to have your own Skywarp before the Titanium line is long gone, pick up Starscream or Sunstorm popping onto the shelves again.

    I've got a Starscream sitting around I've been meaning to do this to for months now. Looks good, is that just a stock purple?

    I don’t remember the actual name of the purple used, I originally tried a dark purple acrylic but it came our almost black. So this one I used is more of a funky-violet/purple color to stand out from the black finish. I handpainted it since I didn’t have any spray paint in black or purple so it took about an a couple hours spread around two days for drying with some additional time to touch-up details.

    If any of you have the wide-hipped Titanium Soundwave, just paint him black into Soundblaster or something. I didn’t sand or apply primer (no patience), so I’m only going to transform him once for pics in jet mode since any joint movement causes paint flakes and then display in a box.

    Looking awesome. Also on the hunt for a second Tcracker. May just get one loose if possible.

    Looks nice.
    BUT:
    In botmode you should pull down the arms as it should be.
