    Well here they are folks, paint finally cured enough to transform them for photos. All 3 started as MP Skywarps, they were cleaned, disassembled, primed, and painted using Tamiya acryls. Every color here was custom mixed, nothing is straight off the shelf. The clear coat is Model Master Flat clear, which I used to give them a cartoon feel. The custom made faction symbols with the foil border came from Boggs6ft7, a fellow Radicon who does some damn fine work if I say so myself. These bad boys should be up on ebay by the end of the day, so some lucky collector will have a chance to get all 3 to complete their collection. Hope you all enjoy! I am taking some commission work on now, if you like what you see PM me.

    Awesome cartoon-style repaints on these guys. The paintjob looks spectacular :thumb 

    Only thing I would recommend is to add some thin black panel lining. It might help with that anime-style look a little.

    All of them look spectacular, but my favorite of the bunch has got to be Thundercracker. I always liked him and Skywarp over Starscream. Great job on these.

    These came out great. I don't normally like painting over the clear plastics, but what you did gives them a great cartoon look.

    VERY NICE group of seekers! I would love to see some panel lining on them, but they still are excellent as is!

    Thanks to everyone for the comments, I appreciate them all. As far as the panel lining, I've always been on the fence as to whether or not I like it. For these particular figures, when you see them in person, they dont really need it. They'd probably look good with it, but it just isnt really my style. I may try it sometime down the road, but these are done the way that I envisioned them.

    i love your renditions of these, particularly the mp thundercracker, i would love to see the painted windows remain unpainted, but that says nothing about your skills, just my personal take on painting windows :p  these are impressive big time!! :bowdown:
