    This is a commissioned piece I just finished up. The client wanted a more cartoon styled Skywarp. I swapped the head w/ MP Starscream, because the client also wanted the "smirk" alternate face.

    I also modified the tail sections of his jet mode to sit on the lower legs (and shortened them up past the tail fins so he could still stand fine while in robot mode)

    All factory paint apps were removed and he was base coated with lacquers (matte) mainly House of Kolors paints. Details done in Testor's Model Master enamels.

    That's beautiful. If either release version looked anywhere near as good as that, I'd have bought a dozen.

    Seriously. :thumb

    ...Most of us aspire to have this kind of talent to BE commissioned for that kind of money.... :) 

    Well done, as usual. Truly an honor to view your work.

    Interesting...All the skywarps I have bought have the same face gimmick as Starscream.
    Is this a Takara version and it does not rotate?

    Love the cartoon style to the paint though.
    Very cool looking.

    I notice you moved the hip kibble.
    Any reason you didn't do the full mod to eliminate it altogether?

    Yeah. My Skywarp is smirking at me right now. Looks like he did do the hip mod. Was there something else that needed to be done?

    Custom looks awesome.

    Unless you painted his eyes red, it's the Takara version. The US/Hasbro version came with yellow eyes.

    Very nice! The painted knee joints add a lot of detail to his bot mode.

    Def the Takara version. The Takara version has the teeth exposed grin where the US version just has Starscreams faces.

    Very nice, I just picked one of these up at Walmart for $30 on clearance with the intention of redo-ing it to be better. Awesome paint apps man!

    Any chance you can post a pic of that face? I don't think I've ever seen it.
    I'd definitely be interested in seeing such things!

    Sounds like a head I'd totally love to have!
