    Here's my custom Dead Starscream.

    First, I just want to say thank you to my bud tobuttica for hooking me up with a Classics Acidstrom.

    This was a real simple custom. I just took him apart and hit him with some Krylon Flat Black spray paint. Then some grey highlights with silver weathering effects to give it a charcoal look. Which is what Starsream from the 86' movie looked like to me after Galvatron blasted him.

    I love it.

    But just 1 thing [sorry if it sounds like a nit pick.]

    When Starscream changed colors, so did his shoulder pads.

    Pretty cool man. Being that the shoulder piece is a 3rd party piece, I probably wouldn't have painted that either.

    Don't forget to paint the cockpit! Now would be a good time to add some "FrogDNA" styling and get a toon shaded look to it. I'd paint the shoulders like others have suggested and then rip up and fray the cape! Go all the way dude!

    Top notch dude. YOu could also mold the should pads to have an extra pair, and shread a purple t-shirt for the cape. Just a thought, but it looks awesome. Looking forward to you adding the other part that you mentioned if you are still going to do that!!

    Thanks Tobuttica. That's a really good idea about just ripping up any purple t-shirt for the cape.

    I REALLY like this one! Typically, I'm not a fan of the "sleep mode" TFs :) lol @ Sleep Convoy), but you've done this one in such a way that's not only well done, but very nostalgic. Great work :thumb

    Thanks Kusanagi,

    It would be funny to have a shelf with the life cycle of Starscream. Regular Classics, dead Starscream, and then ghost Henkei(or cheap KO ver:wink: )Starscream.

    first i'd like to say i love your custom because it's my boy. this is a really nice job you did on it and it doesn't look painted. now here comes the but..... i hate that they made these f'ing sleep mode variants. when i was a kid i cried when Optimus died. then they killed my absolute favorite character.... STARSCREAM. so evil and conniving in your face. after that i said ":cry there's no point in watching Transformers anymore:cry ". so, love your work but hate sleep modes. but serious i really like your custom:thumbs2:
