    Well I thought I might get into the whole repainting business. I tried once before with Classics Megatron, which failed. However I got all the paint off and started over (except the left shoulder. However that wasnt as bad as the rest). After I did Classics I followed suite with the deluxe Megatron in G1 colors.
    However my favorite thing is my Classics Seeker Coronation armor. I sculpted the crown and shoulderpads and made the cape from a Senate Royal Guard robe from Star Wars. It works on all SS molds. Speaking of Seeker molds, that Skywarp is a repaint of Acid Storm. I picked him up cheap from Walmart. Looks really good. I also painted all those damn orange parts on Galvatron. To round off the Classics stuff I painted Ironhide's face, windows, shoulders, and knees to better suite the G1 look. I would do a vehicle mode, but I am still working on TRANSFORMING HIM BACK. Heh I can get everything together but it wont lock in place well.
    To round out the non Classics I have Energon Starscream as Thundercracker. This is a placeholder till the new SS comes out so I can repaint my current one in those colors. I also have Movie Payload repainted in Shockwave colors so I can have him on my classics shelf.
    I am sorry about the quality of the pictures. I will try again later, but with these you can see all the major work.

    Sweet job on these. They could use a bit of touching up but they aren't bad. I've never seen a Classic SS with coronation garb, good idea. I also like the E. Starscream as TC. I would have done Acid Storm into TC cuz they both have black arms so when you stick a gun in his hand the paint wouldn't rub, just my opinion though.

    they all look really nice, but I really wish that you would have given each and every one of them their much-deserved thread. Not only does that make it easier for someone to find your projects via Search, but then you could more properly show each project off.
