    Nothing special here. Just what the title says. The base figure was ugly, and I couldn't wait to get the G1 colored variant from ebay, so I did my own version. I tired to make it look somewhat weathered to compliment the mould.

    Looks good. Very early-IDW style.

    I really like this mold. Especially when I got leozack and skyquake. Like it as D-unit stated that it is very early-IDW. Love the paint job. I really like those glossly colors, even though jets are suppose to be flat colored.
    Great job

    I love how shiny it is, and it's definitely an under-appreciated mold. The top of the jet could use a little more color (see the official Energon Starscream) but that's a minor quibble and entirely a matter of preference. Good stuff.

    This is one of the tougher moulds to get looking good but THIS is how to paint e.starscream!! Perfect colours and app choices i think.

    Thanks!

    Say what?! You made energon thrust? I cannot believe I missed this auction! Well, thanks anyway.

    Actually, that's kind of what I had in mind! thanks.

    I like the mold as well. The jet mode doesn't look real enough anyway, so you can even turn it into sunstorm and it would still look good.

    Thank you!

    You know, I was reserving my desicion to do that until I got feedback, but if more people think he looks better with wing stripes, then I'll just have to find another red sharpie!

    Thank you very much, I just knew I had to try this.

    Again, Thank you all! More comment and criticism are welcome and would be greatly appreciated.

    E Starscream is one of my favorite molds, and you've done some damn fine paint work on him. Only drawback to the figure are the arms, in my opinion.

    I really like this one. Unlike some, I like this mold, and I think you did a great job with it.
