    WIP:ROTF seeker-bot/thundercracker

    Hey everyone,
    This is a WIP figure I got the idea for last week sometime while looking through some galleries. Its a kinda/sorta figure for the seeker bots in the rotf video game. Ive gotten this far but have to put it on hold until I get some more styrene. He's made from tftm dropkicks legs and random bits, tftm payloads waist, universe megs torso piece, most of the airplane from tftm thundercracker, rotf sideswipes arms and head (head will be modified, its just a place holder right now) pieces of universe acid storm and tftm barricades hips..somewhere in there..Its about deluxe size, basing all size off of the legs. I still have to work out getting the head on (right now its just balancing there) and finishing and filling in the alt mode properly. I know its not really close to the cgi renders, but unfortunately I had to make up alot of its workings since there are only 3 available pics that I could find online. And have no idea what his alt mode is. (dont have the game). I like mine pretty much the way it is though, so no biggie. Thanks for looking, any c&c is welcomed.
    Thanks

    SWEET! though the alt mode shows some cleavage, the bot mode looks freaking great to me. the inner limb parts that dont show on plane mode would look better in a metallic color for me. but great nonetheless.

    I think the seekers turn into F/A-18 Hornets.

    Good work on the custom so far.

    If the official molds of SS & co looked like this I would'a snagged the lot of 'em!

    Great job! Can't wait to see it finished

    Personally, I prefer the current ROTF Starscream mold .... but I do have to say that you did a great job on this one, given the restrictions of your source materials.

    His alt mode is an F-18. Just sayin', so far it looks hella impressive though. Keep up the awesome, and be sure to make an awesome weapon for this guy ;0

    That's pretty awesome... sooooo much better than the basic "seeker" design in the Bay movies. If Starscream had looked more like this, I would have been much happier.

    This is an interesting combination of aesthetics as well as series!

    This mold can work in ANY world, very well done...can't wait for more (classics or G1 head to complete the circle!!!)
