    OK this is my first Transformers Repaint and headswap... my first go at a custom for myself.... and I am very happy with him. I think ill be spending alot more time in this area for additional ideas when customizing some of my KOs.

    So... this custom is a GIJoe and Transformers Human Alliance Starscream... Repaint and headswap - will add rocket launchers soon to make it more "custom" (they are painted, just waiting for me to glue them on). This is a WIP until I figure out the best way to stencil on a large cobra sign on the hood using these sprays and attach the needed weapons, and possibly make him a cape...

    I have fallen in love with how this car fits joes so much over the last month I just had to repaint a couple. My first shot was intended for PDD Pimp Daddy Destro or Iron Grenedier Destro all depending on which side of the bed he wakes up on. So I went with Gold and Red (gold head red cape or Gold head and dark red suit with leopard prints).

    I am contemplating adding black spots (but would like an airbrush gun to do it) and I would like to figure out how to make a good stencil to use with these sprays (tamiya metallic synthetic spray paints - love these things!)

    Destro was in line with starscream in the comics so I thought it would be fitting to make destro's transformer partner as Starscream.

    Head was taken from a Supreme Class Cybertron Starscream KO

    I will add rocket launchers under the hood, and am stil contemplating what weapons to put in teh trunk space, or to leave it for ... trunk space (which can hold nano warheads, or pimp equipment...

    I just have robot mode pics now, will take some of ALT mode in teh next day or 2 when i finish my cobra commander megatron mustang which I was working on yesterday and will try to finish tomorrow.

    I love these things so much I wanna make billion of them....

    thnks

    gotta add hidden weapons systems for car mode, i just have to ensure they wont affect transformation (the hood launchers are fine, its the rear that is the pain in the ass for me)

    and maybe some paint here and there... might change the headlights from smoke covered gold back to smoke covered chrome... cobra sign, some other small details here and there....

    but for now he is done ... until I have time to complete him the way I have in mind.

    Awesome idea! I'm assuming the oversize KO Alts are around 1/18th scale or roughly 12" or longer vehicle modes?

    Very cool, I look forward to seeing more of these!

    yea its about 1:18 I think, good enough to sit joes inside, only transformer I know of that actually fits joes inside in alt mode.

    Will get alt mode pics up when i finish CC today, i havent even transformed starscream once yet

    Great paint job! And the fact that you can fit Joes inside makes it even better. As soon as my financial situation improves a bit, I'll be picking a few of these up from your site (love it, btw) Make sure you save me a couple! lol

    Yeah, I'm pondering one of these oversize Alts, now myself! :D 

    I also like the fresh take with PD Destro and SS, usually I see TF/Joe customs that are with Cobra Commander and Starscream, nice to see a fresh take!
