    A custom Machine Wars Starscream. something new and fun to do

    He has been given articulation both on his arms/ legs and as well a ball join on his head. He is being fully painted to match his Machine Wars color scheme. He stands taller then masterpiece Seeker

    side info

    Machine Wars was a short-lived toy series in the Transformers toyline, introduced in 1997. The series was initially exclusive to KB Toys and its subsidiaries, although overstock/unsold surplus eventually appeared at other retailers.
    Machine Wars was Hasbro's first attempt at returning to vehicle-formed Transformers after it had revolutionised the toyline with Beast Wars, where all toys had animal alternate modes. The Machine Wars subline lasted only for one wave of toys, which contained twelve toys

    thank you guys for stopping by and comments

    Nicely done. With articulation, that mold is a real killer!

    The arm parts are from the ROTF Longhaul mold, not sure about the legs.

    Pretty cool. You should try doing this with the Universe Dai Atlas version of this mold too.

    I could be wrong, but it looks like Alt Windcharger legs for the articulation.

    Some figures are so cool that they just need some good articulation and some custom TLC :)

    this looks great, the mold itself has great details and an imposing staure, but is a brick and a half. Your added articulation really brings out the character. this would look great in the original skyquake colors, pitted against any one of the re-articulated overlords created by our members.
