    I've had this guy in the waiting pile to finish up and after getting sent home from work early I took advantage of my down time. Screamer was changed into the Cobra Commanders personnal Raven in the GI joe TF books.

    I used an Energon Storm Jet as teh base and painted him in black. I then replaced his head with an Energon Screamers head and removed the combiner head. I tried my best to copy the paint scheme of the original Night Raven and applied Cobra symbols were needed. I had to reproduce the Night raven Logo via Photoshop and then applied it to the appropriate wing.

    Overall I am happy with the way he turned out.

    you got any plans to paint up some ofthe combiner limbs?

    i could actually see that figure sporting a set of energon kickback/cobara hiss tanks for the lower legs and a set of energon skyshadows/ cobra rattlers for the arms and shoulders when it comes to all five forming a cobra decepticon 5 memeber combiner team

    I totally agree, you should do a Cobra Army combiner. That would be totally badass

    Either way you've done a great job on this Starscream!

    let me know what you think of this


    your cobra starscream sporting armada skywarps head for the combiners robot head minus that head mounted fin piece



    with energon terradive and shyshadow being bashed up into a set of cobra rattlers say one sporting a stealth ops stratoviper colorscheme and the other sporting the classic rattler colors with the 2 rattlers serving as the arms and shoulders with a properly centered hole beind drilledin into the underside of skyshadows and terradives feet so that a dremilled down set of pegged ball jointed alternator fists could plug into the underside of the feet

    this picture here showing how the rattlers would be set up as a set of arms wiht the fists

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v622/RodimusVTS/Superionwithnewhandsandfeet.jpg

    with energon kicback being kitbashed into a cobra hiss tank for the lower right leg

    with energon sledge or bonecrusher getting the front and bac set of backhoe tires swapped out for a set of tank treads and the shovel scoop being swapped out for a hinged heavy duty drill bit to convert the backhoe into a treaded mole tank

    hers a picture to show how the backhoe wheels can be swapped out for the tank treads

    http://www.tfans.com/talk/index.php?showtopic=63299&pid=1105061&mode=threaded&start=#entry1105061

    and cybertron clocker being bashed up into a modified form of cobra stun with clockers fista pegging into place on those minicon ports that are set up on the back of your cobra starscream figure

    thiw would make it possible for the clocker cobra stun figure to serv as a heavily armored form of backpack/flightpack

    with the combined form as a cobracon combiner team being a more modern day take on this guy

    as for the combiners name i figure dominator is as good a name as any

    Wow you really put some thought into that man! Kudos for the background work.

    Screamers gonna stay a reg bot though. Storm Jet happened to be the perfect jet mode for the Raven and I tried matching it with the crossover comic as close as I could. I also think that Screamers really not a team player and I can't see him merging with other bots.

    I have 2 more GI Joe TF projects in the works a F22 Raptor (don't remember what the Joes called it) and a Cobra Hiss tank.
