    I've got a pair of spare Sunstorms for customizing, but I'm not too sure on what colors I want to use. I figure it's basically 3 main colors- arms/legs/weapons, main body parts, and large trim, plus a possible 4th color for extra trim. I've already made one (pics in a week or so when I get the camera back), with grey on the body, silver trim, and black arms/legs. And he looks quite sexy. :D 

    Anyway, here's my available colors:
    black
    grey
    silver
    brown
    midnight blue
    yellow
    red
    purple
    dark green

    I've got two ideas (other than G1 schemes, I might give them a shot sometime). One is Green body parts, silver or grey trim, and I guess black limbs. The other is red body parts, purple trim, and probably black limbs again.

    The colors don't feel like a lot to work with but I'm hoping I can get a few good matches out of them. So, who's got ideas?

    Haha

    I honestly thought about it for a few minutes, but it sounds like you have the plan already worked out and just waiting for you to start :lol 
    The schemes you already have sound cool

    Maybe you can do silver limbs on one of them , maybe the red & purple one.
    Not sure since you're going original with em.
    Was thinking G1 Scourge for a second , but agh dammit G1 get out of my head!

    Painting. I thought about that Cobra idea, went back to looking at the ancient A-10 thing they had but it turned that was pure blue. Still toying with the idea though.

    I ended up doing one kind of randomly this morning. I took a Sunstorm and painted the yellow to red, and painted the thighs and weapons purple. That's pretty much it so far, I think he needs some more purple trim. I'm calling him Flamestrike for the time being. Pics soon I hope. :) 

    Still pondering green as a major color, but brown and purple are about the only things I have that'd really go and I don't want to essentially copy Redline's Slipstream.

    Wow, that's bright! The green I have is much darker. Also trying to stay away from the red/green thing, I don't want to do a christmas seeker. :p 

    I just added a little more purple trim to Flamestrike, and damn he's sexy. Can't wait to get some pics up to show you guys.

    Good news, I've now got three customs seekers pretty much completed. Flamestrike, Stormcloud (made him last weekend or so), and yesterday's project- Starfall. Starfall looks even hotter than Flamestrike; he's midnight blue with purple, some silver trim and white thighs. (Inspired by the Warcraft 3 spell. :D ) Just need a little touch up in a few spots and then putting on faction symbols. Pics coming late tomorrow night!

    I need more sunstorms to work with now. :p 

    Thanks man, I'm good on ARCs now though. Just waiting for the new stuff to pop, and I think I've got it all pre-ordered through BBTS.
