    Rotf Voyager Starscream No Tatoos And Some Mods

    i recently got an spare rotf voyager starscream
    and i gotta say i love the figure
    but the tattoos were starting to rub off and it didn't look good, so i decided to remove all of them

    UPDATED WITH BACKPACK AND VERTICAL TAIL FINS MODS (LAST PAGE)

    i took an old toothbrush and dish cream and thats it
    now it looks very clean (pun intended Xd)
    and i gotta say, it looks awesome, i liked the tattoos but i don't regret removing them

    This is actually pretty neat. It is there interesting to see Voyager Starscream without tatoos.

    tomorrow will post pics from the shoulder mod i did, it makes the figure look slightly beefier rather than fat, which make the figure look tons better in my opinion,
    just a minute sanding a little tab that prevents the shoulder move up all the way(not the shoulder rotations)
    maybe will do the elbow swap wich i think works perfectly

    ok, latest batch of images for this week

    here you can see the shoulder mod, wich involves sanding the black tab on the shoulder hinge, which prevents it from moving all the way up
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    before the mod, it could only move this far
    now, it can go all the way up
    [​IMG]
    now you just rotate it and thats it (yeah, I'm missing one landing gear)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    this is how he looks now
    [​IMG]
    here is a comparison between both shoulders(you can see now it is closer to the shoulder fins)
    [​IMG]
    then i sanded down a little tab on the nosecone hinge and now it folds all the way on the back
    Before
    [​IMG]
    After
    [​IMG]
    i tighten up some joints, and as you can see, he can do the kick test shot
    [​IMG]
    XD

    here is a close up of the chest panels rotated
    it really makes him look better
    [​IMG]
    haven't done the elbow swap yet because i only disassembled one arm
    but i tested with the same joint and it doesn't give too much articulation either way, so i may need to sand it down a little bit

    to disassemble it i heated the gun with a hairdryer to soften the glue then i removed as much as i could with an small flat screwdriver
    then i removed it without damaging anything
    but have to do it to the other side and well... i just have not enough time since i had some homework to do

    some of the best poses i could get with him
    yeah, i forgot to fold out again his shoulder fins in this image, but on the next they are folded up)

    UPDATE
    [​IMG]
    backpack and vertical tail fins mods
    the backpack mod is just sand a little bit the part between the two screw holes just a little bit(and a little bit at an angle) and allows the backpack to sit flush with the back making it look and feel so much better
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    the vertical tail fins mod is actually just rotate the conector(unscrew the thighs and just remove the little conector/balljoint for it and turn it around, assemble it again and thats it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    now it allows a more accurated position for the vertical tail fins and does not affect transformation, and they now can rotate and move in even more ways so i think even if it is so simple it does wonders

    I tried doing this a LONG time ago before I got the leader class, but I never managed to get them off lol. That F-15 mode is pretty cool too!

    This looks really great. His alt modem looks great! I really love most of the figure. The transformation is pretty cool and overall it looks good. My only issue is the legs and feet. I wish there was a way to have the legs be closer.
