    The Japan exclusive is great but I decided to make my own...I used the DOTM THUNDERCRACKER (TRU sale last week BOGO1/2 off) and TESTORS Gloss Black enamel spray paint and TESTORS "Grape Purple" enamel for the highlights and TESTORS Metalic enamel red for the saw and blade. Hope you guys like it...Have some touch ups to do still but not too bad for a first timer.

    Actually I left it in, I did cover them with small pieces of masking tape then after the spray paint I removed the masking tape and brush painted the surrounding areas as not to touch the silver pins.

    Also, anything that was gray plastic, the pinstriping, etc I covered in masking tape also.

    Nice job! Looks just as good, if not better than Takara's release, but I'm sure it was a good deal cheaper. Beautiful work!

    That ix very slick work.

    The only tiny disadvantage of using tc, is the pegholes in the wings being visible blue.
    Had you used a Starscream, those pegholes would be gray....and perhaps stand out less...than blue.

    Either way, great custom work.
