    I had some spare KO seeker parts after I got replacement parts for some broken ones. I realized I could do something cool with them!

    Edit: the original Starscream KO looked like this:

    The arms and lower legs are from the Thundercracker KO; I did not paint the Starscream limbs. The face and torso were painted using Formula P3 paints.

    not a huge fan of action masters for obvious reasons, but, you did do a very good job on that. It's pretty cool.
    Funny lil' comic you got going too.

    Obviously you made the wrong action master seeker. :p 
    Should a' been Thundercracker. ;-)
    Really good job though, dead-on. Kinda wondering why didn't just go the extra one millimeter and remove the tailfins though.

    I might make Thundercracker still but I don't have the right colors of paint. :) 
    I considered it. This one needed relatively little work. The colors of most of the KO Starscream and TC were already pretty close.

    I left the tail fins on for balance reasons. Also up til close to the end I was still considering making it able to transform.

    Glue his wings onto his arms, and it would be perfect. XD

    That is a very good homage.
    I'd like to see him with wings.

    That looks really cool. Any chance of putting blue wings on him so he can still transform? If not, any chance of taking the rear fins and wings off his legs? They seem out of place with no wings on his back. Heck, if anything, paint the little rear wings blue and put them on his shoulders to match the AM a bit more.

    I'm out of large wings and don't have any spares to use on him. Actually I did redo the legs since I took these original photos, and the tail wings aren't there any more.

    Edit: you can kind of see the legs in this picture:
