    Now that MP-03 is only days away from wide release, I'm sure many of the members here have either thought about, or is going to repaint Starscream, so I figure I'd start a thread here that gathers all the info, tips, WIPs, and final products in one place.

    I'm going to buy red paint for the blue section of his torso. Easy fix, and it'll look so much better.

    This thread is a great idea. I'll keep an eye on it, especially after my Starscream shows up.

    I hope there's an easy way to get rid of those stupid white lines without ruining the other paint apps.

    I'm betting that there will be a second release, in G1 colors, that I will definetly purchase.
    But the question at hand is about repainting MP-03. I may purchase one to make into one of the other seekers, or will they also release those repaints,as well? I'm really confused now. Six masterpiece seekers will get kinda expensive.

    If those are indeed paint chipping in the other thread with a close up picture, then I think you can remove it easily with rubbing alcohol, most of Starscream's parts are made from ABS plastic, so I think repainting would be easy, but how to cut down the thickness of the paint is what I'm wondering about...

    hey, that color scheme would really work, in spite of some odd red parts spoiling the realism of the jet mode. needs to be more grey than white-ish tho.

    I agree, I think a more metallic gray might work better than just straight white

    also, the white seems to entirely wash out all the detail.

    Silver/light grey would look better, but that looks damn good too. I would definately have bought one if it looked like that.

    I was thinking about disassembling it, taking silicone molds of each part and building a new set of properly colored parts. If I only knew how to obtain that sturdy plastic Takara used back in 87 (Headmaster toys). Painting over just doesn't feels right to me. Also they're using fragile ABS resin, I'd like to have a stronger toy to play with.
