    Here he is. I know you've all probably seen a bunch of these, but I feel like showing off my own personal message to Hasbro here. I WILL NOT PAY that much for a seeker repaint. I actually feel tens times better than I would have if I bought one for $9.99.

    Looking on the bright side, my G1 Transformer fascination has now taken a creative twist. I can now make the molds Hasbro throws at us into exactly what I want.

    That minimalist colorscheme is extremely dramatic - I LOVE the black vertical fins. And I never realized exactly how much difference the red stripes made. I think I prefer TC without them :)

    Great clean apps! Is that skywarp under there? I wanna do the same but I don't quite know what to do with a 2nd Magnus. I'm no fan of a nemesis repaint...

    Ok, since I keep seeing these awesome custom's/kitbashes, think its time I try. But first before I splatter paint all over a tf, what kind of model paints are you guys using or would recrommend?

    I used Skywarp as the base character because I wanted to keep a few things black without painting them ie his legs so the paint doesn't come off. Oh and the paint I'm using is testors acrylics from a multi pack I got from walmart
