    Well, he's another one, I am sick of looking at, so he went through a photo shoot tonight. I shortened up his wrists and added some magnets to hold the claws in place. The claws were made from that every so popular 'neo-shifter' P.O.S. Also want to point out, he's painted with 100% enamels, and primed with car grade primer. The paint won't budge now.

    He'll end up on Ebay later this week. On my blogger (link @ bottom) I'll shortly have up some new tutorials and more pics of this guy.

    Just to bring a little love back from this summer's movie...

    What is this "'neo-shifter' P.O.S"? My movie Starscream G1 redeco needs better arms too.

    DO WANT!

    At least those hands look useful now! Not to mention he doesn't look so cheap with the excellent paint job!

    out of all the "movie accurate" Starscream repaints, I'm fairly certain this is the best one I've seen

    Not too sure about the hands, but they do look kinda cool. The purple con logos on the wings look out of place, too G1-ish and they dont suit this kind of TF design. Paint is nice though, and the car grade primer always makes things look better.

    How many goodies do you get in those neo kits?

    This is what he should have looked like to begin with. I would have been all for detachable hands. Very nice work by the way and thanks for sharing!!!!

    Man, those hands make all the difference to this mold. Nice work! Between this and your custom Smokescreen and Quints, you're on a role! Keep it up!

    Out of all the custom hands on all the custom Starscreams I've seen since the movie came out, these hands look the best, IMHO.

    I think shortening the wrists makes a big difference too. Good call.

    yeah, TBH, i'm still not complete with this repaint. As you might see, the nose cone and some interior mechanical parts still need paint, lol...I was in photo shooting mode, so, I took shots cause he was sitting right there.

    thank you!

    the color took me a long time to decide upon, and after thorough investigation, I decided a metallic silvery=light blue was closest to the movie's color.
