    I used the WFC mold for this one, with a heavily modified headsculpt to better resemble his G1 look, a custom blaster, more G1 looking as well, and painted in G1 colors with my usual cartoon style, including a cell shaded "tape deck".

    Laserbeak is based on his short cybertronian appeareance in the 'More The Meets The Eye' G1 episode and was built from scratch.

    EDIT: Added more pics of Laserbeak, since some of you were asking ;)

    Nice work! The cel-shaded paintjob looks really clean, and Laserbeak's a fantastic build, from what I can see of him. All the shots of him are kinda side-on, though. Any chance of a few more angles so we can see the awesomeness better? :D

    Fantastic work. I'm surprised how good he looks in those colors. Give yourself a pat on the back for me.

    Funny, wasn't all that sold on this mold - but then I saw this repaint.
    Great work - love the G1-style reflection on the chest & dig the Laserbeak.

    His wings wouldn't be made from a motorcycle's mudguards or Sideways' shin armor would they?

    I dig your cartoon style a lot. The painted reflection on the front screen really sets it off well.

    That blue is perfect. Is that straight from the can or a custom color?

    Outstanding man. I've always loved your animated shading. Soundwave and Lazerbeak both look great
