    Hey TF2005 Homies,
    I wanted to show you all my 1st custom, well Customs.
    Im really excited to show you all my custom G1 ROTF Starscream, Since i got the figure i searched all through the web to find certain Looks, colors, version's etc.... Then i found a Transformers Fan Pic on Deviant Art called "Return Of the Seekers" and Loved it, so much i had to use a couple ideas from the Artists Pic (kurisama is the Name). I wasn't sure bout using White on my figure, so i search high for a good grey-ish color. I just did a repaint, this is my 1st custom, im buying two more Voyagers to create Ramjet & Acidstorm. I had a huge problem with the nose cone, painting it just made it REALLY stick, Anyone have any ideas. his Mech-Alive Still Functions So this is my Custom Starscreamm Tell me what ya'll Think. Sorry for no Plane mode show, i kept scratching the paint.

    What i did:
    1) Pulled him apart and layed out all the peices and Spray Painted them "Testors 1226 Flat Dark Aircraft" paint. i did 2 Coats
    2) His Gears i Painted "Testor Gold Enamel" (I Recomend NEVER to use)
    3) For his Red And Blue i used "Acryilics Cobalt Blue & Testors Flat Red Enamel"
    4) also used an Aluminum Color for his feet and leg gears.

    Well, without alt-mode pics, that is.
    He looks way better than the G1 repaint we got from the first movie.

    Thanks man,
    Yeah I wasnt feeling the 1st repaint too much. I like the movie style of this one, tattoos and all, but I had to take em back to the g1 days. Thanks for the comment family, good looking.

    Excellent custom and I have a suggestion....

    Howabout swapping the head for the one on the TFTM GN.1 re-deco SS to give it more of an old-school look?

    Wow,
    sounds awesome. Where could I find just the head at? I just thought bout it, that would be sicker that snot nose 4th graders. Would it fit, seems like 1st movie starscream was a little bigger than this one, I might have to ask frenzyrumble for a little help. Lol

    I love seeing the modern day toys/characters done in their old school colors. Very nice.

    Without drybrush and use look it looks like original G1 figure, but no movie figure.
    Its my opinion. But its good for first custom.

    And Lime, what the hell you mean with "your's had"? Its still my starscream.
