    Now That is a cartoon TC. Great job. My favorite part about it are the panel lines. A very Toei animation style.

    very cool, although I thought his forearms were supposed to be black, and are his decepticon symbols red or is it my monitor?

    They have been a 3 colors honestly... black, gray and blue. GI cartoons were never know for continuous accuracy! LOL! I liked the way they looked gray so I went with it.

    See this picture.... granted a bit darker than mine, but you get the idea. Notice the difference between his head and arm color:

    Oh.... his con symbols are purple.... compare their colors to the stripe on his wing. They look weird in this pic for some reason.

    True, there may be inconsistencies from time to time, but these characteristics are always constant:
    -his forearms are the same color as his hands
    -his forearms are darker than his chest

    Thundercracker had black / dark grey forearms in the cartoon, other than that they are very accurate to the cartoon,
    even with color shifting seekers at times, you know, in Rhino 2 Starscreams.....than God they fixed that crap in Shout.
    But I also like them to have body colored nose cones, seeing as how in the cartoon they usually appeared as such.

    The flat look always works for G1 figures.

    Don't be an ass. They are purple not red, look at them compared to the wing stripe. Also, they are the SAME color as Skywarps and Starscreams.... do you think I purposefully made 2 different color decals?

    And I went a different route.... is that OK? I liked the way this looked.
