    After The Fallen hears of Megatron's demise he launches an ALL OUT WAR on the Autobots. This time not relying on faith to seal Optimus Prime's fate, but GREED.

    The Coneheads are one-track-minded as all Seekers all, but unlike Starscream it isn't POWER that fuels their lust.

    Dirge exists solely to speed past his rivals, refusing to be slowed down by targeting he will shoot to kill at the first sign of a conflict. The only reason he took this job was to hunt down the faster Autobots, to use their parts to upgrade his landing gear, to be faster on land as well.

    He would rather do a fly-by and nail his pray with a point-blank shot to the face than bother with an aerial campaign, as he would have to slow down to get a lock on his target.

    ABOUT THE CUSTOM:

    Using the TFTM '07 Starscream I replaced the head with a balljointed E.mirage(dreadwing) head and using various Neoshifter mods (credit Crefigz) I replaced both arms and gave him new ankles, for better pose-ability.

    Dirge in particular got his cannons from a random junker bot, and his winglets are actually just relocated from the back of the SS mold. The nose cone wings are from Universe SS. he was primed with Krylon Fusion camouflage , and detailed with Testors enamels.

    I will be submitting a FULL gallery and a TUTORIAL for the neoshifter mods as well.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask, Dirge and the rest of his conehead brothers will be combined for sale in an Ebay auction in the next couple weeks. I'll keep you posted on that.

    This custom is all sorts of epic win. It's akin to how G1 Dirge had a standard seeker body, but had his own unique wing assembly, weapons and personality. Cool homage in that spirit with the use of the Starscream mode, and EXCELLENT choice of head to not only make him look different, but fit well within the movieverse.

    Not so random! I recognized them instantly. They're from a Power Rangers Season 2 Red Ranger Chinese Dragon Zord - the one that can also turn into a humanoid, and serves as the core Zord for the Megazord. The pieces you used to create the cannons originally formed the bo staff of the Red Ranger Dragon Zord. If I'm wrong, I'll be damned.

    I'm looking forward to his next project too. That Decepticon symbol and the paint overall looks top-notch.

    thanks everyone, I actually dislike the ROTF mold, besides this custom is ALL bot-mode anyways.

    I just had the guns in a box of stuff , that's why i said they were random, but thanks for the clarification.

    hoping to put Thrust up this weekend.
