    This was basically a fun test with some metallic green I had wanted to try and this little Air Raid figure won the pick for it. I am going to make a far more accurate version of Smokejumper and I have a better figure in mind for him but this one came out... 'okay'. The metallic green is poor in color and looks more blue in the pics than it actually is but anyway...

    Ah, a little test run for paint. Good.

    Sure hope to see this done with the Energon Starscream mold.

    That would be a great mold for him...very similar in jet mode especially, I might just do that one. I still have another as well though, a bit bigger.

    Oh yeah? I was assuming it'd be that since the reference of the Energon mold to that was so obvious.

    Can't wait to see what it is you have in mind though.

    No, I am thinking of something in a voyager class size. It'll be interesting though. Ah, I see your point...I guess the pic of smokejumper is the starscream figure huh, didn't know that till now.

    Technicly (And I hate this sort of nitpicking) Its G2 Smokescreen's mold, from the G2 Dreadwing set. Energon Starscream is a mold clone of that figure (Exact same transformation, but completely original build.)

    Come to think of it, that would be an interesting project to do....changing E Screamer to G2 Smokescreen...

    I actually have both figures and Smokejumper is essentialy a downsized remolded version of Starscream. Articulation is the smae though and Smokejumper has thos huge arm cannons

    Yeah...except that Starscream is a good ten years younger than Smokejumper's mold :) 

    Smokescreen (1994) - Decepticon - www.tfu.info

    and his great grandkid:
    http://www.tfu.info/2004/Decepticon/Starscream/starscream.htm

    But again, neither here nor there. its still an awesome concept of a repaint :)

    That's cool. I only recently learned about smokejumper through transformers wiki after learning about who Nemesis was before he was nemesis. Figured I'd give SJ a shot. Good info guys!

    Indeed, one of the more interesting, if obscure parts of transformers history. I do like your repaint...You have any plans to do a Dreadwing partner for him? He's perfectly scaled to have a deluxe or ultra sized partner (And I date myself with using those terms :)  )

    I did have plans to do a dreadwing too. And there's another one that I want to do as well that goes with the crew, Caliburn. Any ideas for that one? I was actually thinking about using Battle Rollar. The MP one.

    *nods* Very good idea :)  The fact that he's allready designed to combine would make it an easy conversion too...

    As far as Caliburn, I'd say MP would be a fun pick (and I'd love to see him used in some kitbashign projects), though I bet Rollbar could work too. I'm afraid I don't know much about the character though. Wasn't he Megazarak's targetmaster? Or am I mixing things up?

    Do you have a backstory for this team? It sounds like you have some very specific ideas in mind for it. Be fun to read I'd wager :)

    Yes, actually I do. See Megazarak like you said later becomes Nemesis Prime (who I am currently resourcing for a longer term project) but before he does... 'he assembled his own personal strike force -including Sunstorm, Dreadwind, Smokejumper, among others. His Mini-Con partner, Caliburn, actually loves the level of carnage his partner, Megazarak causes' (taken out of transformers wiki).

    By the way, who is 'MP' that you mentioned?

    Twas refering to the masterpiece version of Rollar. Sorry, might have been a bit vague in my response. I don't think I've really seen any kitbashes of that mold, so it'd be fun to see someone do it. As far as the strike team i concerned, I can't seem to find any reference to them on my end. Which wiki did you use? I recall Something about that group from the old newsletter they did before the current club...Never actually read the pertinent issues though.

    I like the ideas so far, but i've gotta correct you here, Megazarak is not Nemesis Prime. Megazarak killed the Prime who was cloned into Nemesis Prime.

    Megazarak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Click on that and then read under the category 'Transformers: Universe' for the character list and Rhinox555, yes, you are right (I feel stupid) but I will still make the chacters for Megazarak but they will bow to Nemesis Prime instead! Maybe I will put Megazarak's head on a chain necklace around Nemesis's neck.

    Thanks! On my initial post, I uploaded those pics of my repaint test guy, since then I have covered his autobot symbols with decepticon ones - just to those who noticed that.
