    WIP thread here

    This bastard took forever. It's all painted by hand, I reckon it took over 60 hours for paint and mods.

    I added a ball joint wrist and finger articulation to the right hand, added the fins to the launcher, swapped the lower arms, reversed the lower leg inserts, modded the back panel so the back wings pull in closer to the body, removed the standard orange LEDs and replaced them with red ones on a switch, removed the cockpit LED.

    The blade is a Dremel wood saw on a spring loaded missile for fast removal.

    I also have some boosters for his back (same as Mechafacture's), but the local store has run out of paint so I have to wait a week or two to finish those.

    There's 2 bits of camo on his back that could use another coat.

    Hakka.

    I display him with the launcher on the other hand so I didn't see any point in modding it. There's a bit of weight in the blade weapon, a ball joint might not be tight enough to hold it in place.

    There is a link in the first post to the wip thread, there is a brief tutorial in there.

    The color is a gold and silver mix, over straight gold.

    Thanks mate.

    As much as I'm not a fan of the character design of the Movie Starscream, you've really brought out the incredible detail and engineering that went into this amazing mold. Quite impressive.

    Thanks. I wasn't a fan of the design at first but after picking up this figure he's now my favorite.

    Thanks mate. Sorry no jet mode pics, once I finish a figure it is displayed in bot mode, the only time I transform one is when they come out of the packet in vehicle mode.

    Thanks Joe.

    Thanks. There is red on his arms in the ILM renders, although I went with a brighter red and added it to a few more places.

    Thanks Sorlac.
