    Okay this is not really a "mod" or something, cause you have to change only one thing on this Kit: NOTHING! So i think Superquad7 will movie this thread to elsewere, but i think this kit is mostly interesting for Customizers.

    Like i said several month ago, nearly when the first pics hits TFW2005 i said "The Thrusters are atached wrong" and i got right!

    I got mine today, and these are frickin' awesome!

    The Joints are a bit loose, to i dissassembled it putted some modelkitglue on the joints and pegs and ll is fine.

    Will paint them after the final Shots for my Review (will use THIS thread for presenting the custom)

    so please enjoy Starscreams glory!

    The thrusters look great, but I think the jetfire could be improved. I bet Classic Hot Rod's launching missiles would look good!

    Yeah the fire is far from good, maybe I'll swap them with movie Dreadwings...

    Where do they fit in alt-mode? They look like they may fit the exhaust area.

    You can place the thrusters even closer to the center of his back .
    It's a great set to have for Starscream , I would tell Starscream fans to get this set worth the money. Now I just need the hands and I'm all set .

    Considering i had already made the wings on my Starscream's missile hand and don't like the thruster fire with this set at all, it is still kinda cool. The saw blade and thrusters look nice, although I too had to use glue to tighten them or they swiveled around on their own.

    I got mine as a gift from a happy customer so no idea how much the set cost. The price is how I would determine if they are a good buy though. Anything over $12 I'd say is too much.

    Yeah they did cost a little but I got free shipping so not too bad .
    Yeah the jet engine parts on my set are not to loose but I would rather them a little tighter .
    But the set makes the figure so much better , can't wait to get the hands now it's the only parts I'm missing now .
    I'm happy with the set , I hope other people like the set too .
