    So here's a Thundercracker that I made for fellow board member Alucard77.
    Edit: He wanted him to look as close as possible to an IDW pic w/a bit of G1 and this is what I came up with. I took a couple of quick pics to show you guys. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take alt mode pics before he picked it up(but you already know what he looks like :lol ). Tell me what you think.

    That's a nice shade of blue you used, but Thundercracker had blue thighs, not black. His eyes were also red, not yellow and he could have used a white square on each of his feet.

    There are different takes on G1 Thundercracker (animation model, comics, packaging art, actual toys, etc).

    While I do prefer my Thundercracker to have blue thighs, the only thing that the old toy had in place of thighs are those black hinges used to keep the wings on. So it is right, but closer to the source material. The blue is accurate and, with all the animation errors in TF: the movie anyway, there may have been a shot in which TC looked exactly like this, but I haven't found it. Great Job there.

    But the custom was supposed to be based on the movie, in which he had blue thighs.

    Well if I was ever to transform him, the blue paint on the legs would have turned into blue scratches. So I went with the other.

    It was a mix, G1 coloring and that image.

    thank you guys. glad you like it.

    yes, there are many different takes on him. and your right, it wasn't in the movie

    thank you. i try my best.
    To clarify everything: we talked about a G1 movie T.cracker and he changed his mind to the pic he showed. I forgot and misnamed the thread. So I apologize to veryone and will get the name changed. The only thing that really mattered to me was that Alucard77 like the custom.
    So thank you to all who looked and liked.
