    The Palpatine mold struck me as a great candidate for Starscream. The wings clip to his hips with no modification by sticking the fat part of the gun barrel into the hip clip. If you pop off Palpatine's head and unscrew the nub underneath, Mega SFC Starscream's head fits right on nice and snugly also without modification.

    Robot is interesting, alternate mode needs a bit more Starscream signature detailing. That's how the next SWTFs should be!

    EDIT : actually no, keep it like that in alternate mode or it wouldn't be a SW vehicle anymore.

    Cool. Head looks a LITTLE small, tho. I wonder if an Armada Starscream head might fit on there?

    Yeah, I have to agree - that is a good choice for Starscream. The few color complements are just nice enough. Good work, dude.

    I don't know, I think he could get away with adding character marking to the wings. After all, it's some random Moff's personal shuttle who's to say it wouldn't have personalized markings?

    Great looking figure, you could have the wings folded in though and not ruin the TF look. Now how about Skywarp and Thundercracker?

    Yeah, I've been displaying him with the wing tips folded in. I just wanted the photo with them out to show the red.

    I'm really hesitant to decorate the alt mode, because it just looks so damn much like the shuttle we all know and love...

    As for SW and TC, I don't have enough Mega SCF Screamer heads. :p

    Looks good, other than the head being a bit small.
    Can't help but think this would make a good Jetfire base too. :)

    It looks nice and clean. I can see the Emperor kicking it with Starscream.

    from the angle the you took the alt mode from it kinda looks like the cybertron forms from more than meets the eye episode of G1
