    Those MP starscream molds are really versatile, especially since Skywarp is in abundance right now for cheap. Hope to see a whole army of bad ass MP figs from you!

    wow, i havent seen your work before but its very professional, masterful. definitely interested in the head choice. just out of curiosity, what kind of hinge are you using in attaching the starscream legs to the feet/car fronts?

    awesome start. it's amazing how low that vehicle is and more impressive that you're gonna fit everything under that shell.
    looking forward to more.

    I use a plastic "I" beam that you get from hobby suppliers and I run a channel inside of it. I drill a hole into the leg and run the screw through the channel into the leg and lock it in. The screw slides up and down the channel allowing the movement I need, I then attach the "I" beam to the front quarter panel by shaping it the beam to fit the underside of the panel and then run a screw into that from the top of the panel (you can see it in the pics) for more stability. Sunstreaker as opposed to Sideswipe has opaque yellow lids on his bottom set of lights. So, when I place the light covers on the panel they will get painted yellow, thus hiding the screw which the top of has to be ground down for clearance. One of my main priorities in doing these figures is durability, the ability to stand up to the wear and tear of someone possibly forcing them open or closed during transformation because the figure is new to them and they haven't mastered how to transform them yet. Also for longevity of the figure, I want them to last and not break 2 years down the road. Thanks for asking.
