    This is a robot mode only replica of Starscream's look on ROTF.

    I tried to replicate every single detail from the CGI model, which differs greatly from the actual figure. I added tons of parts on his chest, arms and legs, for that messy and sharpy decepticon look.

    The original canopy section was removed, since it's not there in the movie version, leaving only the canopy itself, for a more accurate look. The whole chest section was redone using mostly new parts to get the right look (much bulkier). The middle section was resculpted to be permanently open, with a few tiny mechanical parts here and there. A few parts were added on his neck as well. Speaking of which, the neck now can be tilted side to side.

    I added several wires on his arms, instead of just paiting the sculpted ones, for a much more reallistic look.

    I also added articulated fingers, and a ball joint on his right hand. Each finger has a tiny spike added, just like the CGI model has.

    I added the jet engines on his back, as well.

    His legs were heavily modified, with tons of new parts added, to get that overlapping-transforming -panels look.

    The paint job was done with several coats of different shades of gray and metallic enamels, for not so shiny but still metallic look (like the actual F-22. I went through several forums of model builders to get the bet mix of colors and proper techniques to get the Raptor color scheme right).

    The final touch is on his head. I resculpted his eyes for a more accurate and meaner "look". (they no longer light up, though)

    would you care to explain how you did the fingers? Or are they totally scratch built?

    Love the custom!
