    Sorry to disappoint you with a lack of actual toy photos, but I've been toying with this in photoshop and I just cant' quite get my mind made up with where I want to go with the paint scheme. I picked up a second magnus v skywarp set so that I could make a black prime, and I figured, why not get the 2 pack for the same price, then I can have yet another seeker *L* I wanted something to do that was for ME to piggyback my commissioned classics megatrons so that its still fun.

    I've changed my mind a few times on the colors, but I'm nearly there. One thing to note here is that that is supposed to be a metallic gold. Ignore the roughness of the cuts, I am not doing it for art but for simply being able to see instead of simply visualizing what the different colors would look like. I am starting to think that this current one has too much red on the legs, what do you think?

    looks really good, if you paint the grey on his arms to red it may balance out, it's just a thought....

    Hmm... add some red to the missle launchers, but just a few details. I'd also tone down the level of red details on the legs. A bit much.

    I LOVE the color scheme and it works really well together.

    Would it be out of line for me to suggest these changes?

    Something for you to consider at the very least, I hope you don't mind

    Of course its not out of line, that's what I am looking for *L* I'm not totally satisfied with where its at thus far.

    Here's the other two black starscream, I borrowed from both of them seeing as how this is supposed to be an update. The first is RM Black Starscream:

    This one is G1, eHobby Black Starscream:

    I don't like how the alt mode of the RM version looks so "hodge-podge", but the robot mode looks fairly nice, if a bit plain. The G1 is close, but the particular gold looks kinda gaudy, and he also looks a bit plain.

    the ehobby black SS is supposed to be a reference to his MW version. Maybe you can throw in an element of that. Blue windshield?

    the only way for me to make that blue would be to sacrifice a ramjet, and even then it'd be REALLY dark blue since that is already a smoke tint. skywarp and ramjet have orange/yellow chests respectively and there's no color you can mix with those to create a blue... unless I sacrifice tranlucency of course and simply paint it solid. :(  It would be cool though if I could get someone to make me some stickers of that shark's head deco that the machine wars version has....
