    While clearing my commission plate I had to get this out of my system, as I've been wanting to do this since the Leader Class Starscream figure came out. The "cybertronian tattos" were printed by the always awesome Boggs6ft7. Thanks man!!!

    Head mod to make his head a lil' more G1 (I really like the decal over his eye), a rail gun on his left arm and a buzzsaw attaches to his right. Magnetically, of course. All the LED's and sounds still work )though he kinds sucks when he brags about how NO ONE can defeat Starscream. :lol )

    The Rail gun (good ol' GW Tallgeese II) opens and extends. The buzz saw blade (GI Joe Sigma Six Duke) spins. I attached some cords from this CRAZY and creepy Mcfarlane figure I got from my buddy Lion.

    Other than that just a lot of paint and detailing with washes and weathering. Jet mode pics will be up tomorrow, as I have to get some sleep. Hope yall like it. More pics HERE. Enjoy!!

    So, I'm also working on a project that will be done in a few moths, an during that project started playing with this. Hopefully this doesn't give too much away by showing this.

    For all the OG's, the third and final mode....Gerwalk Mode.

    Looks great, but I feel the head could use a bit of yellow too. Right now it kind of looks as if old Sunstorm is wearing a yellow suit, which is too bad because the paintjob is superb!

    I hate the design, i hate the toy, i hate Sunstorm's colour scheme, and i hate the tattoos.

    But... damn, put them all together and this thing is suddenly awesome! I'd argue there is slightly too much black (some shades of gray would've helped a ton), though maybe that's made much worse by the black background. Also, did you use gloss black on him? It really has a shine to it, of which i find a little off-putting, as the black are the robot's internals, so i'd expect them matte. Maybe it's just the camera flash that's fooling me, i dunno. Otherwise, i really like it. I hope that the jet mode is all orange, though, as i don't really want to see the black too much, having too many different colours on a stealth jet kinda defeats the whole 'stealth' idea. :lol 

    Overall, very nice work. :)

    That is crazy good looking. I particularly like what you did with the head.

    I don't give a monkey's for this figure (or Movie Starscream in general), but my word, you've made it look good.
    For the record, you know you can buy recordable voice chips, right..? ;)

    Yeppers. It transforms in a PayPal payment. :lol  JK...Yep, Jet mode pics are up.

    I really intended for the face to be much more silver and the head to be black, like the G1 fig....didn't really work out that way though. Thanks for the love on the paintjob.

    The future clear coat I used I didn't dilute at all. There is so much rub on this guy I wanted as much protection as possible. No camera flash, it's just that shiny. As far as a stealth.....dude, it's a yellow jet. I think your screwed with stealth at that point. :lol 

    Where were you 2 weeks ago! Damn you, Ramrider!!!!

    This is incredibly sweet :thumbs2:  Especially the weapon add ons.

    Nice how the gunmetal legs make the jetmode seem sleeker than it is.

    You know, I've got a hazy memory of mentioning it in a thread in RGD not long ago... That said, I can't actually find such a thread, so maybe I'm deluding myself.
