    Flawless as always Spurt....

    I can only hope that we get half as many Ani Seekers from Hasbro that you have cranked out, of course they wont be a cool looking as yours, but at least I hope we get them....

    Again man, flawless work :thumb 

    Looking forward to the group shots :)

    Man, I love what you did to screamer! I love what you did to all of them! I think my favorite part about these (besides the customized heads, incredible btw) is how you make the edges look worn. Really looks great on that blue! How do you do it? Is it sanding the edges of a dark color painted over a light color? Looks fantastic!

    Very crisp and clean. Eyecatching, to say the least.

    The only thing that would have been better would to have made his missiles more "null-ray"-ish.

    wow another jaw dropping custom, as with some of the other Radicons on these fine boards.
    Yes I agree that technique really makes these stand out, I've thought that for awhile now, and what is the best way to achieve this look?

    Thanks guys:thumbs2: 

    Thanks
    Well i tried going with the red originaly but it felt a little overpowering so i went with the blue to break it up a little.


    Thanks
    The grey is drybrushed & everything else has been Highlighted.
    I did this guide a while back..

    dude every seeker you have made was freaking sweet, but this G1 screamer is the best by far. I can't wait to see whats new for '09. Maybe the female clone I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    Beatiful. Your Animated seekers line has been a pleasure to follow, although in fairness my favourites are your more creative ones, like the coneheads and Dust Off.

    I must ask, being unable to find the first seeker you did, what ARE the usual hand, missile, and head mods? (apart from the sanding of the ebasty chin that is)
