    Absolutely LOVED FrogDNA's death of starscream so I did a similar job for a good friends birthday present from the gang.
    The paints ended up being a more blue/green version of grey but I love it none the less.
    Hip Kibble Mod.
    Acrylics.
    Started out as a more flat, cartoon look but ended up having the robot mode nice and scratched as my friend loves the scratched metal look.
    Will post better pics after I give it to him!
    Here's Hoping he loves it.

    Ps just want to say how much I love the community! Constantly browsing and enjoying your work.

    Haha, well that's what I thought it may end up looking like..
    Rather big project to go head on for my first time.
    Maybe I'll keep it for myself and just hand him a masterpiece box filled with ashes.

    Yeah i did, the clear version is just horrible. The greyscale death/sleep modes from the original G1 were way cooler imo.

    Yea but you could have achieved the same effect with a FAR less expensive figure like a WalMart MP Skywarp. Nice job none the less.

    Living in Australia, the Toys R Us near me was selling the figure for no less than 200-250 regardless of which model it was.
    Shipping made every figure available costly. I ended up just getting one off EBay, only costed about 125 shipped which was then split between a few friends anyway as it was a gift.
