    Hi Everyone

    I made my Skywarp and Thundercracker revoltech's a while back and ended the topic by saying I would be making the cone heads soon but never got around to it.
    So I decided it was now time so bought 3 more starscreams and started to paint them. Then I had to make the wings I made some wings for ramjet that came out ok but i wanted better. Looking on ebay I saw the king toys mini seekers and bought them and it turns out there wings work perfectly for the revoltechs.
    The cone heads are custom made but turning some circular plastic on a lath.

    I am very happy with the way they came out, clear coat is still a little tacky so no poseing pics just yet

    Now that these are done i will be returning to my other project the Disney's Cars transformers

    Wow! Those look great. Excellent idea using the mini KO Seeker wings, they really fit perfectly.

    Now you just need an Actionmaster Thundercracker (since Revoltechs are sort of the spiritual heirs of Actionmasters... albeit without the silly vehicles). :)

    Awesome work, man. It sucks that they all have the same smirk but it's real hard to do anything with it at that size.

    Thanks For all the nice comments :thumbs2: 

    iDarkDesign Yea i am surprised that no one beat me to doing these, with the amount of people that said they were going to make these and just never done them

    project9 Yes having all 6 of them with the same face kinda sucks but there’s not much i can do with that but i wish i could have different faces for each of them

    One minor quibble: Dirge and Ramjet need the right weapons! Are the ones that came with the mini-seeker KOs the right size to fit with the revoltechs? It might just be a matter of grinding the pegs down/building them up with putty, then.

    The ones that come with the mini seekers are a little to small and plus in the cartoons they all had the same weapons and I was aiming for a more cartoon look with them
