    Update on page 2

    Never attempted to do a G1 Starscream before, and that's because I was always very intimidated to attempt him (favorite TFer so I cannot mess him up). This simple Conversion is my attempt at creating a Scaled transformer lot. It may only be a few characters, but it will be my favorites, and they will be to scale (or as close to it as I can get) in their vehicular modes.
    Anyway, here's what I did so far:
    I used a RotF Strafe; beheaded him, and then combined a Kreon Starscream helmet with a spare energon Screamer face, an added some "Greenstuff".
    Still have to paint him (although ironically Strafe's colours are reminiscent of WFC Screamer mixed with Armada Screamer).
    Enjoy mates:

    I would use a bigger head, but the head itself is nicely done and totally love the idea!!!

    Interesting. That works reasonably well. I feel like he needs a larger FACE, if not a larger head. I really like the look of that Kreon helmet, but the face inside feels too small.

    Neat idea. :thumb

    I agree that the face looks too small. Would an Armada Screamer face work better for you? I think I have one laying around I can send you for cost of shipping

    Great use of a useless repaint! I agree though the face is a little too small but if you like it then thats what counts!

    Nah.. headsize looks pretty fine imo.

    He reminds of Armada Starscream this way.

    aye :)  , me too, and thanks mate
    Thanks! His head or rather his face is supposed to be that size as when I compared G1 Screamer's figure, I had noticed his head was a good size, but his face also was rather small, almost tiny. See here:
    Starscream (1984) - Decepticon Air Commander - www.tfu.info

    LOL Gracias primo!

    Aye you hit it on the head, or face lol... See my reply to G60Force, and thanks mate for the comment :) 


    thanks but no thanks, but I really appreciate it mate :) 

    Thanks. Strafe's colour scheme is very interesting as it evokes the Colours and feel for Armada or even WFC Screamer. Also and probably more interesting is that the figure mold actually is bulky like Movie screamer as well. Then you even get the blade wielding of Armada/Energon/Cybertron Screamer as well. So in a weird way this Screamer is like all the types throught the major genres... weird.

    Thanks, and aye

    Thanks mate.

    Head size is fine. I think the main problem is the way the neck is. If he had something to hide the fact his neck is a little thin, he'd look great. Probably not much can be done while retaining the movement and transformation. At least that I can see. But yeah, just something about the neck that makes it look a little off.

    Well here's what I've got:
    I customized the wings, and the wingtips, to better facilitate G1 Screamer's. I tweaked his vertical stabilizers (tail wings) so that they become thinner as they go further away from the fuselage. Obviously the head. Then I repainted him, and sealed him.
    All I need to do now, is his Null-rays and I've got an idea fer that :)

    He looks better IMO. Not sure what you did to the head, but it looks a lot better :)

    Thanks mate!
    Thanks as well mate!

    Believe it or not, nothing was able to be done to the neck, so it may be the shadowing... Anyway, thanks mate!

    Looks pretty good. I like the way they came out. Different enough from the original to give him his own flavor, but similar enough to envoke the homage. Good job :)
