    There are many skillful artists out there who came out with their own style for TFTM 2007 Movie Starscream, but here is my version. I took some time looking at my custom archives and found out that I should do something about Starscream since I don't have my proper version of this figure.

    My version of Starscream is modified by using Neo-Shifters parts for both arms, Bumblebee 1974 Camaro's cannons & a ball joint for Starscream's head from BB Gundam to get it articulated. Different perspectives of view under high or low lightings show different types of paint tones, you can see more of the pictures in my blog.

    Thanks ! Thanks ! Wouldn't say my pictures look good, my photography skill is at a newbie level.
    Thanks ! I added details on the wings to make it look weathered, kind of cuts a jet gets from flying super fast.
    Thanks !
    Thanks !

    Wow, nice touch. Great idea with the Neo-Shifters arms. You gave me some inspiration to do Screamer this way.

    i love the paint job, I think the arms could have some molding done to them to not look too skinny, but a great choice for the arms though.

    GREAT paint job, and awesome pics! I don't like Movie Starscream at all, but I have to give you props for making this thing look great.

    Having a good full range of motion in a head can make a huge difference to how well the whole figure poses, I find. Good call.

    The NeoShifter joints fit really well... my only suggestion would be to maybe glue a few small jagged panels or something to the arms to "flesh" them out, and match them to the rest of the body a little.

    But it still looks amazing.

    This is IMO the best movie Starscream yet. The arms of a Neo Shifter are dead on for accuracy. And like Optimus Primal said I think I need to go bacn a revist mine again but this time with a screw driver and a dremel.

    this idea i had month ago

    http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-cus...512765282/?catid=searchresults&searchid=15030


    but my on e isn't as perfect as these - WOAH, awesome!


    to add the arms, nobody needs adremel, only a screwdriver to unmount the original arms, the neshifter arms can be doocked without any glue or something, it fits perfect

    This is awesome. I used the same Neo-Shifter claws on mine almost a year ago, but the neo-shifter forearms really bring the claws and the rest of the bot together. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2311/2224509903_7518a88915.jpg
    excellent painting as always, I can't wait until i get my hands on a ROTF Starscream, he's my favorite.

    Wow, this looks really cool! I am planning my own version once I get Deep Space Starscream in. I think he is a bit too beige for my taste.

    The only thing I'm not sure off are the hands. You seem to have a very high level of bashing in you. The hands don't look like screamer's double thumbed claws. I would try to build a different hand. And maybe an additional 6-missile launcher as extension of the arm.

    I'm still looking for a small prefabricated gatling to attach to his forearm.

    It's way better than the original! I'm making copies of your pics for reference!
