    In the Comics SG Dirge appears to be in Sunstreaker's colors so based on that I painted my Ramjet is Sideswipe's colors. Coming upon my Thrust I had a hard choice. Do I paint him like Red Alert which would fit the theme for the coneheads or do I go a different route. In the end I decided to go a different route to keep two of the coneheads from being red, black, and white. So I gave it a lot of thought. The G1 Thrust is a coward plain in simple. What color scheme would work for SG Thrust. Then it hit me. Despite the Joke about how he 'can't deal with that right now" Ultra Magnus was one of the bravest Autobots. So it only fit that the now bravest Decepticon would have his colors. I even took it a step further by making the white more primary kinda like a white knight. I did some minor touchups after the photos.

    Bio:

    Before war broke out Thrust was in the Cybertronian guard defending his home planet for any outside force. He was away on patrol when the war began. When he arrived back home his troop was given a choice. Join Prime or die. Realizing the horrors that Prime committed Thrust declined and ordered the Rainmakers to attack. The battle lasted all of few hours with Thrust's Squad suffering no causalities. Thrust left the Autobots alive to deliver Prime a message that Thrust will not stop till Prime and the Autobots are defeated. Thrust later joined up with Megatron to hep bring peace back to the home he loves.

    C&C Welcome.

    Welll....
    the SG universe is like looking through a fun house mirror that cracked. most things are flipped around. Starscream is faithful and sports Jetfire's colors while Grimlock is a crazy psycho in Trypicons colors. Others sport reverse colors like Goldbud is mostly black with gold parts, some sport very close colors to their original colors like Jazz, and yet others are totally off the wall.

    Hope that helps. :D

    That right there has got to be one of your best works, at least in my opinion. Great work on the bio and the choice of colors. :thumb 

    Funny though when I saw bot mode I thought of Starscream (the 2.0 version of the classics mold).

    Thank you. :D 

    Funny you should say that. I used the wings from thrust, the head and cockpit from Ramjet the 2.0 Starscream body. :D  :D  Course I still had to paint a uniform white over it as the Ramjet is a slight off white.

    Thanks for the Props Lucs.

    Thatsn buddy. Glad you like it.

    Read the post. The blue matches the G1 Magnus perfectly but i can see how you can draw your conclusion.

    Cykill....oh yea I guess I can see that. Glad you like the bio.

    Thxs. That is wonderful props coming from someone who's customs I enjoy. I actually had him done a while back. Just got around to posting pics.

    White and black huh...... Mental note White and black for a custom seeker. ;) 

    Thank you Aprim. Glad you like it.

    Thanks. Glad you like the idea. I didnt want to go for the straight Magnus repaint or I think it would have looked too much like Thundercracker.

    Good news Glad you like it.

    Bad news thats not accurate unless you have some FUNPUB source to back it up. And last time I checked Sunstreaker was Yellow and Black also. Oh and Dirge seems to be white blue oh and red......


    mirage??? ok I guess thats what we get for only having 8 colors to wrk with. lol!!! :p

    good news: SG colors for one character have nothing to do with other characters.

    Love the design, paint and bio. Great job.

    It looks pretty good, but too much white. I like the mostly white and blue alt mode, but Magnus had way more red in bot mode. Then again, if you paint most of the chest read, he'll look too much like Starscream. Maybe the chest red, but use blue around the nipples where you currently have red?
