    Hey everyone, this is about half way done. While waiting for some paint to dry i decided when looking at some hands I put together laying besides my cybertron voyager starscream figure that it was time for him to man those arms up. This all took about 15 minutes, not including drying time for paint. I used the elbow joint and forearm from that alternator s2000 (name slips me right now), and the bicep from tftm blackout. I just flattened the stumps and mated them together with a screw, I'm out of glue and I'll do it later, but the screw has it on so tight it doesn't even need it. I'm only done one hand so far, I'll do the other later and put it up with alt mode pics as well. I'm sure lots of others have done it before, but it was pretty much a cool distraction for me with all the paint troubles I'm having on other figures.

    They look like Alternator Windcharger fore-arms/hands.

    Nice, I've always liked this toy. Some man hands would actually improve mine as well!

    They are from Windcharger, nice use of them. I wish the Supreme Class figure had some like that.

    Thats really cool and the hands make him look really good. Where do you go to learn these tips and learn how to do custom work. I have always wondered where guys on here learn how to do custom work. Is their a book you can buy or somewhere to read about it

    Here's the Radicons tutorial section. :)  Bearing in mind that a lot of customs like I AM MEGATRON's one include individual problem solving (however small) based on the figure. Basically you'd find suitable parts that fit, and if they don't then hack them down until they do.

    As for this Starscream? Huuugely improved. I hadn't even noticed what puny arms he had until this!

    thanks everyone, and definitely check the tutorials, and if you figure something out, submit them there as well. Most of the time you figure things out on your own, you just have to actually try and take it from there.

    Fantastic! I have this figure and like him but the arm and hands were always underwhelming. Great to see you did something about it!
