    this was the most recent commission i have finished. the customer was a bit of a pain in the rear-end lol, but is all good :)  i think it came out great and he loves it. this figure did remind me of how much white SUCKS to work with LOL... overall, it was a fun figure to do. took a while longer than i thought, all the red was hand painted, no spraying or taping off even. but the end result was well worth it. i finished the project off by doing the Red and Blue in a semi-gloss finish, and the white was cleared with a Satin finish. here it is, enjoy!

    It was cold out so he had to put on his mittens and cap, :lol  Nice work, I'm surprised how well the vehicle colouration matches up for robot mode. Everything lands in pretty much the right spot.

    thanks everyone!!!

    there was a lot of brainstorming and drawings done up, and ideas tossed back and forth between me and the customer to make sure that what he wanted/envisioned out of this and what i had in mind linked up the entire time.

    a few times there was too much white, then too much red, then not enough of something else, but it all worked thru and ended up with a piece he is very happy with, and i am as well! im not in a hurry to start another one, BUT if anyone does happen to want one of these guys made up, feel free to drop me a message :)

    Very nice. I don't think anyone's done this yet, which is surprising.

    ya, i was actually worried someone was going to beat me to it... i thought i woulda had it done in a week or so working on it between other projects.. but some things took longer to dry and plan out, so it took about 4 weeks off and on between other stuff to finish this guy up.

    its been done for about 4 days, just wanted to give the paint the right amount of time before i started transforming it back and forth for pics

    Wow. This is clever. Everything does go in the right spot when changed to robot mode. But I hate movie starscream (that walking Dorito with chicken legs and a bell for a head, ugh), so I'm all about the plane mode when I say that is one awesome paintjob. Very IDW esque. It really makes me want a new classics seeker mould that turns into an F-22.

    The correct colors make him at least a bit recognizable.

    I'm quite surprised that Hasbro or Takara hasn't done this... they haven't released a G1 Screamer redeco since the first movie line. 3 molds since (4 counting the very competent Legion figure) and no G1 redeco. Hell, there's only been one Seeker redeco (... well, two counting Takara).

    Which is a damn shame because that was a terrible mold... that they then made much worse by sticking a completely fugly "G1" head onto.
