    I find your choices interesting, but you left out a Seeker: Sunstorm! He's just as much a G1 Seeker as Acid Storm (granted, Sunny has MORE of a place in G1 then Acid Storm does, as while Acid Storm had a little more screen time then Sunny, Sunstorm's been in more of the comics and has the Animated repaint, too.)

    I think my only "ground breaking" G1 inspired movie figures will be Pounce and Wingspan, movie style!

    That wasn't what I meant, maybe my word choices were poor. I have lots of stuff coming that has been done, just putting my signature on it. Just like anything any one else does will have their unique style signature on it. The Movie Clones I think will be something completely new, from a conceptual point of view.

    I'm sure your stuff will rock, hope you weren't put off by my comment, that wasn't the intent. :thumbs2:

    Cool as. I especially love Starscream and Megatron. If the colour schemes were used in the films it would have been easier to differentiate between TFs.
    I can't wait to see Optimus Prime and Soundwave. :thumbs2:

    Posting your work in the main section rather than the "discussion" subsection would probably help too :) 

    Love the Rumble concept and your execution on LB and BS. Great ideas on many of the others as well. I ALMOST don't hate Ice-Megs seeing him done up like that ;) 

    Keep working at it, it's nice to see someone who's not afraid of color (especially in Movie-land)

    Thanks DL! The reason I put it here is because MOST people don't care about WIP threads over there so i thought about posting here...

    And Ice Megatron need some more work so you won't know that it was an Ice Megatron...Once I get done with each character I'll post in the customs section..then when they are all done a group shot...:thumbs2:
