    painted him up like the stormbringer comic. added white to the hands, and painted the launchers all red. glued the misiles in place, and painted them black. you can't see, but the grills on the sholder are also black

    Looks good dude. I immdiately added black to the vents on his sholders as soon as I got mine. Adds a lot to the jet mode.
    Have you considered cutting the missiles down to make them a little more accurate?

    looks nice, but why'd you glue the missiles in place?

    I like a lot of the added paint details, but I prefer him the way he comes out of the box. You did a great job applying white to the black hands. However the gold symbol looks out of place, and its location leads one to belive it was half-printed onto the caopy glass. I also would have left the missiles alone, I much prefer the clear blue and longer length. I also think you'll eventually regret gluing them.

    That's something I've never even considered...cutting the missiles down would improve the scale look...especially on the classic seekers...the missile would probably shoot farther as well...

    naw, i usually never even use the misiles anyway, and when i do, its only for astetics, unless the really need them as part of the over all bot, like starsceam. since my figures are more of models than toys, i don't really care about lauching misiles unless they are G1

    I feel the same way, all my missiles & other junk just go into a box. You did a good job with these however.
