    After seeing the RID Starscream mold, I knew that this was a custom that I wanted to do. I had always looked for a definitive Starscream to fit my collection, and now I do.

    - New hands
    - Added tailfins
    - Added miscellaneous mech parts and thrusters
    - Removable upgrade kit (G1 wings, collar bone covers, thrusters)
    - New null rays
    - Movie weapons
    - Full repaint
    - Megatron gun
    - Dragon dagger to call Bruticus/Trypticon (Cause why not? haha)

    FoC Starscream head fits the mold if you grind down the collor. Where'd you get the wings from?

    Yeah, I tried it but I like this head a lot better since it makes him different from his seeker brothers. The wings are from a scrap classics Starscream.

    It's surprising that we have had several versions of "G1" starscream, but Hasbro seems to bodge it up with limited articulation, rubbish head sculpts, etc. Nice work.

    Thanks! Yeah, I get what you mean. Though that just means it's more fun to customize figures. haha

    The more I look at it the stock head actually does look pretty awesome with how you've done it.

    It doesn't show in the pics but I tried to follow the RID eyes with the red pupil and white iris. It just needed some tender loving paint. Thanks!

    No problem! I'm building the OG Seeker trio out of this mold using the FoC head and I may borrow some ideas to bulk them up.

    ...damn. I didn't really like the RID15 'screamer, but you made it look AMAZING. BTW, what mould is that dead-sexy Thundercracker?

    Thanks! I was one of those that really liked the mold itself but not the paint apps so I didn't do much in changing what it already was.

    Thanks!

    Wow, love the little details/decals you've added to this! You've really made the figure a work of art!

    AWESOME!
    You did an excellent job working around the original mold's not too perfect altmode, but the way he looks in Bot mode is stunning!
