    As I spoke of in my Slipstream figure:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/327856-slipstream.html
    I was making a partner for her and here he is in full glory ARIOS STARSCREAM!

    Screamer can combine with Slip in jet made to make a Super jet that mounted into a display stand. He was a tedious paint job but in the end I am happy with how both him and her turned out.

    He looks pretty feminine; that's so weird. He could use some bulking up in places and it looks like his signature null rays would be easy enough to add on his biceps to use in vehicle and robot mode. Really like the idea of gundam crossovers, I think you convinced me to buy a GN Archer.

    Be both know, he is NOT worthy. Sweet work, man. Allelujah would be proud. Hallelujah would like Screamer too much for my taste. :lol

    What's equally weird is that I don't see any feminine feaures at all, much less enough to be called "pretty" feminine. Everything is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

    Besides, since Starscream is king of the skies, or whatever, then it only makes more sense for his body to have more angular, aerodynamically-friendly, features. Extra "bulk" would be unnecessary.

    I think both modes look great, and it offers yet another exemplary paint job. :thumbs2:

    Slim torso, wide child-bearing hips, high heels, and faux robo breasts is why. I think it's an excellent custom regardless and Starscream has never been the most masculine and modest character anyway (which is why there's so much "fan art" of him "with" Megatron).

    I'm sure Soma might like the new paint job for Archer, but i can't see H/Allelujah liking that gray on Arios. It looked better in orange. The purple on Archer certainly goes with Marie's hair colour, though.

    I can't say i like this paintjob for Arios (I facepalmed as i clicked on this thread), simply because as the resident Gundam Meister i say Ascalon was better, but i'll admit the jet mode works for Screamer. Not sure if i could picture those two working together (factoring in the Archer's natural dependence on Arios' GN Drvie), but it looks good in that mode.

    Robot Mode, honestly i think could be improved, but that's just me. Paint is super slick, though. Just wish the cockpit could be seen in bot mode, though that's more the mold's fault than yours.

    I like how well the alt mode turned out. It's very different. I definitely see the feminine vibe from him, but I think it lends to the characters other incarnations, and it's not enough to detract me from liking this piece. The paint work is really good for the colors and finish, and that you made it able to combine in some way to your other figure is a nice touch.

    It makes me think of a Gradius fighter which is one of my favorite mecha designs.

    This kicks ass. He's aerodynamic and slick looking in which makes him perfect to go at supersonic speeds. Great job, Shinobitron.

    After seeing Leozack from last year's Botcon set and some of the followup fiction released by the collectors club, coupled with the fact pointed out by several others already that the mold looks feminine(for a transformer at least), plants the idea in my head that this might actually look better as Lyzack.

    Not that I don't appreciate the idea in place here of a certain duality with the characters in question here. As a set the 2 look like they work well together. Alternatively though, a Lyzack and Slipsteam duo would work as well with a different dynamic, being that they're both sort of female counterparts to 2 well known flying Decepticon squad leaders. Plus we really need more Decepticon Fems, so bonus there.

    And also, I feel it would be amiss if I didn't mention the combined vehicle mode reminds me of Buster and Hydra's Darkwing combination.

    .....

    Wow, inspiration is weird sometimes.

    Nice choice of a model kit. It works pretty well for Screamer. Awesome painting as usual. :thumb
