    This was the nameless, unofficial blue guy from the Rainmakers which ended up being my favorite of the 3. This was also 50% scratch-built, based on the Starscream Supreme class figure. Oh, and I currently have a Starscream Tetrajet in the works...:ev:

    This one has a cool look about it. white and sky blue. very relaxing. I've never heard of Icestorm. Is this the third Rainstormer?

    Indeed, he really came out better than I thought he would for such a light blue....and I did in fact base him on the third Rainmaker, the blue one. :cool: 

    His name, well, I scaled the internet and even asked around at Botcon and Hasbro themselves and nobody knew his name, he was never official. I did speak with an artist with IDW comics and he said he understood it to be Icestorm. I've heard so many different names for this guy but none that I could live with. My friend Zach from here on the boards came up with a really cool name "Cryostorm." I browsed the internet and found there's a band already named that, so I went with Icestorm instead.

    I personally think that "Hailstorm" would have made a better name. But this is still one of the best customs I've seen in a long time. Great job! :D

    Your gonna paint all the Supreme SS's aren't you? :lol  Love the name, and very cool that you went through the process of doing the research to come up with it.

    Always great to see your stuff. Wish I could have seen him at Botcon :thumb

    This is a slight gravedig, but these don't really evoke the Rainmakers without the neon colours. This looks more like Thundercracker with snow on him.

    Sorry to disappoint, but I took the liberty of making it my own since nobody else has done this guy before. I currently have the complete set of 3 voyager-class Rainmaker Tetrajets with the sickening flourescent colors in the works... :thumb

    Wow... I know I think I'm a jinx but that's bizarre! I was thinking about this bad boy literally hours ago for the first time in months!

    Nice to see them again. Always been a huge favourite of mine

    Well, Starscream's been done and sold already, but a Jetfire Tetrajet is on his way to the boards this weekend! Here's some pics of the Coronation Starscream Tetrajet:
