    I really would like to thank Hasbro for releasing the cheap Acidstorm mold of Starscream
    Customizing that seeker has never been so fun to do, since it relatively sells for peanuts and I could afford to mess him up without the fear of wasting TOO much money

    You can call this either Japanese Henkei Black Edition Starscream or Universe 2.0 Nemesis Screamer
    I chose to call this one Classics Nightshade, my own seeker model, and Skywarp's unrelated twin

    I hope you enjoy

    Having an active cloaking system for stealth infiltration rather than teleportation abilities, neither Autobot nor Decepticon are safe from
    the haunting eyes of the night watcher as he disappears with his victims in a dark cloud of black smoke



    *Usual treatment, colored full with Tamiya Black for the most part, guns, and wheels
    Tamiya Chrome Silver for the markings and chest piece
    **Sorry for the picture quality, I wasn't able to get any better than these
    ***This is still a prototype, so you can see that some parts aren't painted well and will have to be painted with another coating later

    C&C are always welcome

    I dig your custom, I have my own Seeker that was the same ability except disappearing in black smoke. His name is Nightshadow. Same colors, but instead of silver he'll have that Matrix green that lime green. Yeah so good job on this.

    LOVE the silver-trim! The lines are so crisp and clean, whether you did them via mask or painted them free-hand you did a GREAT job!

    Thanks!
    It seems the shops here were "hiding" the Acidstorms they had, for some reason:p 
    I always find one on the shelf, buy it, then come back and find another one in its place

    Thanks
    I wanted some black seeker in my set, didn't appeal much to Skywarp, so in came Nightshade :D 
    The effect came out better than I thought too ^_^

    Thanks :) 
    I wanted to give him an ability just like Mirage, turning invisible and all
    The cloud of smoke is just for bringing out his dark character

    Thank you
    Everything was free-hand painted, no masking involved

    Well, the whole idea of him NOT having faction symbols is that he's neither Decepticon nor Autobot, he's just a stand alone transformer that hunts both sides of his pleasure
    Think Animated Lockdown, but no payment involved and he doesn't keep 'souvenirs'

    Thanks :D 
    I always like giving my custom their own effect pics to give them more characteristics at which abilities they can use ^^
