    He's had all the same mods as Starscream: Ball joint wrist and articulated fingers on right hand, chest LEDs have been relaced with purple LEDs, fins added to launcher, lower leg inserts swapped and reversed, lower arms swapped over.

    This is the first figure I've done that wasn't in the movie, it was good not having to worry about accuracy and just going for something cool looking.

    I tried a few new things on him, and changed my drybrushing technique. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.

    That's sharp!! I think a little bit more of purple will make him better. Nice work!!!

    Personally I think he'd look even better with more purple,
    but that said, MY GAWD, your skills with a paintbrush must be near unparalleled.... Excellent work! :thumbs2:

    Looks good, but nothing about him screams Skywarp, rather a different color scheme for SS.

    Thanks mate.

    You'll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Thanks. I love your sig - I want to do that with this mould.

    Thanks guys.

    I wanted more purple but couldn't really find any spots that were suited to it. I didn't want any purple on the jet parts I think it would look out of place.

    The purple LEDs light up his entire chest cavity - which i have propped open for a better view. The transparent orange plastic has been painted with clear purple. The pics dont capture this as the lightbox overpowers the LEDs a bit.

    I might play around with photoshop and see if I can find some more bits that look good in purple. Suggestions welcome.

    Thanks mate. No jet mode pics for this one, he's stayin in robot mode for the rest of his days. The arm swap hinders the transformation, there's pegs on the forearm that are now repositioned and dont line up with the slots.

    That and I dont know how to transform him anyway.

    Hakka.

    I like that it's not overly purple, and just has a subtle hint of Skywarp. Keeps it more realistic than a black and purple jet.

    Thanks guys.

    Tobuttica summed it up perfectly. I could have gone the usual purple stripes route but its not realistic for a jet and doesn't really fit with the movie theme.

    "That and I dont know how to transform him anyway." - Hakka

    Dude, this must be the hardest one to transform because with instructions and video tutorials I also had a nightmare of a time working on mine (slowly but surely it's coming along).

    I can completely disassemble him and put him back together but I'm not game to attempt to transform him.

    It took me all night to transform WFC prime, that was a stupid idea - never again.

    Thanks mate.

    I went to grab another one for Thundercracker today but couldn't find one. I did find a cheap deluxe brawn, I've put new legs on him he looks pretty good. I'll probably paint him up before I start thundercracker.

    Thanks guys.

    I like it, the hints of purple give it a very WFC feel.

    May I just say that I disagree in the strongest possible terms with your plan to destroy the internet through sheer awesomeness?

    (Or, in other words, this is awesome.)
