    One of my more popular customs is Mid-Warp Skywarp. I get many requests for that custom, this one was an order for a Masterpiece Grade version.

    I started with a (expensive) Masterpiece Ghost of Starscream figure. Most of the figure is cast in clear plastic, so I got lucky. The parts which weren't were cleverly painted over, to either appear clear or act as "visible" Skywarp parts. Because the clear plastic Takara used wasn't as clear as I'd prefer, I buffed, sanded and polished it making it shiny and clear... like glass.

    Mid-Warp Skywarp also utilizes my easy tail fin modification. His "warping" effects were created using about 6 shades of blue; from navy all the way up to pure white. Skywarp also has an alternate face (flips to "warp mode" sneer) or traditional Decepticon red optics.

    His base includes a very bright LED which aimed up illuminates all of Skywarps tasty clear parts.

    Skywarp was originally a commission, however - due to circumstances beyond the client's control, the order was cancelled and... he's teleporting himself to ebay.

    It's too bad Takara didn't use clear plastic for the landing gear. That wheel really shows on his right knee...

    Hot damn I was waiting for this to show up, and it did not disappoint. Yet again, another fantastic job. Great use of the Ghost Screamer mold. If Takara were smart, they'd take advantage of that clear figure of awesomeness and pump out one like this.

    It's not that hard to replace it by another clear wheel? NOT FOR YOU :p 
    I believe the inside of a classics seeker thruster might do the trick...

    or have you considered using a cd case that firstly lay about 4-6layer s of 1cm pieces on top of each other than use or finest drill or melt a nail right through, when it's done keep grinding and cutting until the size is right :D 

    This thing looks beyond epic... those pics with the led on... made me AWWWW!
