    The kings are back in town. These are the final Cybertron kitbashes I intend to do. I had a lot of fun making these and I'm quite proud of them.

    As much as these pictures show off, they in no way do the Transformers justice. Thundercracker looks like the poster Seeker for Capt. America who recently passed away, Skywarp's purple is lighter in the pics than real life, Ramjet's wings and Thrusts whole body look the same color and they're not, and Thrusts VTOL Fan is not clear at all not to mention he appears a lighter shade of red in some pics than others. The only one who didn't get screwed was Dirge. Overall though, I'm quite satisfied.

    First thing I thought too, cool though. They could use a few more paint apps in robot mode maybe but they still turned out nice.

    they look sweet, much better than the normal version, my one suggestion would be that you should have left the crowns gold, i think that would have looked better, even in alt mode.

    I was wandering when you were going to get these things done. I personally would of painted their clear parts in corresponding colors to them, but that's just me. I'm going to leave that at that. I don't want the same thing that happend last time happening again. Peace out.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. Raven, what do you mean about the clear parts? Give me an example will you?

    Well there was a lot of time and money spent on this project, but I feel as though it was worth it. I'm really quite happy w/ how they turned out. The one thing I'd like to do would be to get some Decepticon sticker sheets for these guys, add some detail.

    I was originally going to leave the crowns off entirely and not even bother with them, but when it came to the coneheads I thought I should do something. So I ended up looking at each Seeker and taking the color that was not as significant as the others and chose it for the crown. Thundercracker has the nicest crown with it being silver, and the three coneheads all got black to match their head colors. I usually don't display them w/ the crowns, except the three coneheads to show the difference. Besides, we've only ever seen Starscream crowned and we know that his alt color, is black and gold, so he got a gold crown. Who's to say that the other Seekers might have different colored crowns if they were ever deemed leader?
