    Still a good bit to do, but I thought I'd post this anyway.
    Arm swivels and pelvis/upper legs/knees donated by TR Astrotrain.
    Wrist swivels are just screws.
    Added leg and arm fillers.
    Trimmed foot height at the top to lower the figure down by about 1/4" so he scales better with other Voyagers.

    Special thanks to joey_santana for the inspiration in finally getting this piece moving!

    Can we see Starscream compared to other Voyagers because of that foot trim you made?

    Anyways, it looks great!

    Yes, please put this next to some other Voyagers. Especially TR Megs.

    Fan-flipping-tastic work as always! This is what it should've been in the first place!

    Next to my custom Megatron and Shockwave. Starscream is wider, but pretty much the same height.

    If he was like this from the beginning, he would be the perfect CHUG Starscream. Great work as per norman

    Nice job! I love the extra bulk Astrotrain's legs add.

    Outstanding work! You not only articulated him but implemented new parts that made him look even better!
    Now this is an inspiring work! The credit is all yours my friend.

    Today I'll put my hands on my Cyber Battalion Jetfire I bought from China and I he will turn into my new Voyager Jhiaxus. Damn I wish I had a TR Astrotrain here so I could borrow elements from this awesome custom you made.

    Sweet work on Screamer. I wish some of these guys were more readily available in the states. Looks really good. Thanks for sharing.

    I always thought that starting from this base mold and adding articulation you could get a pretty kickass voyager class Starscream. Wish they done him like the excellent Cyber Battalion Megatron who is pretty poseable. Good Job!

    How did you add the Astrotrain parts? Really tempted to try something like this from the jetfire version of the mold

    Measured the places needing replaced (upper arms and legs), then cut that much from Astrotrain, drilled holes to add pins for support, then used both super glue and a resin glue to gap fill.
    Hardest part was making sure it all still sat flush in alt mode.

    Like what you did with the bicep swivel, and the upper thighs match the design pretty well. I still need to articulate the arms on mine, too bad Astrotrain was never very common near me. This Starscream is a really great looking figure in hand, too bad it's a Universal Exclusive in the US. I would have bought a few for customs. Still hope they can put out Skywarp and Thundercracker at some point
