    Important Question
    What are the best labels to use as Decepticon logos? I hear the Reprolabels are good. How are they applied? Like stickers or like those decals found on some model kits. Thanx for any help.

    Hello again. For the moment this one consists of TFTM Leader Megatron's wings. BM Jetfire's arms and head. This is just the BASIC shape of what it might look like in seeker mode. Currently working on looking for a good pair of legs and waiting on necessary paints and tools to complete it. Thanx for looking.

    Just completed painting the cybertronic jet-mode of this custom. I used Testors Model Master Artic Blue Metallic, and Red for a little highlight on the wings.

    Received and just painted a TFTM Target Exclusive ThunderCracker head I received from a good friend who will be mentioned soon. Take a look.

    I think his head should either look like an obvious TC head or a movie seeker head. While you are creating this wholly new looking seeker, it has to have shreds of threads connecting it to whoever it is you are homaging otherwise it just doesn't work. :)

    a homage doesn't work if you don't have parts of your figure at least resemble whomever you are homaging.

    He's saying: Make sure you make it look like Thundercracker somehow. ie. Paint job and Head, so we can recognize him.

    I think if you use a movie starscream head it'll be fine, since all the seekers had the same cartoon head anyways.

    If you want a Movie Thundercracker head, I'll ship you one for free.
    I bought a lot of tf's at the flea market and their was a junker in there, the head's about the only useful part and I don't need it.

    Just let me know if you want it.

    I think Reprolabels are actual stickers, like on normal TFs.

    The paint job looks really nice! Love that metallic look to it!
