    I gave ol' Carscream his G1 paint deco. The question is: Do I give him his traditional red tits or do I preserve the white fake hood so it matches the color of the real hood?

    Since its a fake hood, and it wouldn't disturb the alt mode at all, I'd say go for the red.

    Why don't you just do the red on his chest and in car mode?

    Red chest all the way. It actually makes his color scheme much more balanced.

    Paint it red! He looks definitely better that way! Especially because he has only 2 eyes!

    Love the mold but his head is such a turn off. I luv how in bot mode he looks very g1 . . . Wings and all but the head is awful

    this repaint is good tho it looks very clean. Id go for the red tits it will break the White up

    I couldn't resist the red. Now he's really looking like Starscream.

    I still might do the yellow/orange in the middle of his chest as seen in the Photoshop above. I'm also thinking about adding the head from Mega PVC Starscream. It's just the right size and very G1. The only problem is that my Mega PVC won't have a head... So probably not.

    Looking great! Personally, I wouldn't add the gold..I like my Universe Starscream better than the Classics one, too...seems more fresh. I also see no need to swap heads, looks cool!
