    Thought I wouldn't get this done until tomorrow, but finished it up pretty quickly tonight, so I thought I'd go ahead and post it. I think he looks alot better than Skywarp, but they do go well together. Makes me wish they had used this scheme for the movies. Ah well.

    Query: I'm selling these guys together on ebay, but I'm wondering if I should take the extra time to buy another one, and make it into a matching Thundercracker? I'm worried that if I put just the two of them up and they don't go for much that I'll be kicking myself for not completing them, but if I make Thundercracker and then they still don't go for much, I'll be kicking myself for wasting my time. Thoughts?

    Looks great. Like how you kept the grey instead of the white.

    Never been a big fan of movie Starscream, but those looks pretty cool. I think you should go ahead and make the matching Thundercracker. It's always better to have a complete set.

    Seriously cool! I have a custom DOTM Starscream in an all gray Raptor color scheme and I think he looks much better than the stark white with black tattoos. Your Starscream and Skywarp really make a nice pair! Really hope HasTak makes a G1 inspired DOTM Deluxe Starscream; they already have the off-white plastic ready to go, but I much prefer your more subdued colors and base gray. Looks great!

    Very nice work. The DOTM mold takes the G1 colors much better than the original mold Target exclusive did. Then again this is a much better mold too.

    This reminds me more of Energon Screamer than G1. Must be the alt-mode.
