    It just occurred to me that you could rename the guy "Leader-1" if you wanted to. (NOT an insult, I promise!)

    Actually, Im still conflicted on what to name him. I've been thinking of namking him Seeker = The Original One. Bio = He comes back to the Decepticon cause on Earth by order of Shockwave. And later on he teaches the 6 "seekers" and Rainmakers what it REALLY means to be a Tetra Fighter. How's that for a bio? I'm still sorting things out. Like where was he and why was he gone for a while. And why his name is Seeker.

    Good news my loyal viewers! gonna get a "BIG" LED specialist to work on this figure, primarily on the HUD Dash panel inside the cock-pit for ultra realism. And if he is able to, will light up the eyes for Seeker. EDIT = YELLOW!! Yes sounds incredible to me, to you experienced radicons its just another day at the living room table...

    Just finished with the arms mostly. A little more Gunship Gray detailing left to do. The Gold Metallic marker I used is awesome! I just used it on the wings as well, and also on the AESA radar inside the nosecone, just like the REAL F-15 Silent Eagle.

    HEY, its Testor's Enamel Gold Metallic Marker. They've proven to be a great addition. Ive been also thinking if I should do Acidstorm next, or Thrust. Just dont know from what angle to do a Conehead for Thrust.

    MORE NEWS, I may also be installing LEDs in the exhausts/afterburners.
    So far that's the Cockpit HUD, Eyes (Yellow), and Afterburners that will be LEDed.

    How's this for a Fictional Bio.

    Seeker: The Original

    Strength = 7
    Intelligence = 9
    Speed = 10+
    Endurance = 10
    Rank = 9
    Courage = 9
    Fireblast = 8
    Skill = 8

    Seeker is, well, a seeker of many things in many ways. Wishing to do as many things before the ceasing of his spark, he only joined the Decepticon cause for when it was on it's early phase, a revolutionary cause for balance of Cybertronian justice and order.

    He is remarkably speedy in his physical speed and ability to make fast, intelligent decisions. His closest ally in the ranks is his Superior officer, Shockwave. He was one of the first Tetra fighters for Megatron's invasion of Cybertron sovereignty. Originally mentor to Starscream, he invented, and the only one to fully MASTER, the physical warping of one being from one place to another.

    Arriving to Earth after Megatron's completion of the "portal", his final moves as a "loyal" Decepticon are reformatting his structure to that of an F-15 SE Eagle **later an F-22A Raptor**, and escapes to outer-space, no longer wanting to do with wars and conflicts, he leaves for his next point of interest, Mars. Shockwave is ordered to intervene his escape, but lets him go, knowing all to well the excitement of exploration. Seeker goes of into space never to come back, but as always, a Decepticon.

    So what ya think? Corny? Any advice from those who are good at Fan-fiction? Thanks.

    Another up-date. Some touch ups using Testor's Gloss Black Enamel Marker. Great gloss effect. The torso was different, since it rubs off on to other stuff in transformation, it was colored with T's Gloss Black spray, and clear-coated with Gloss Lacquer. Looking good so far. I hope BigHank can deliver what he promises. And I need to have another word with AutobotX23. AARARAGHGGH!:drunk

    UPDATE

    I assembled most pieces together just to get a good look at how good it's coming out. And so far I'm more than satisfied. Obviously its messy, but judge it when Im done. Give me your opinion, should i leave the gold highlights, or replace them with silver highlights? Thanks.

    He looks really good, but I think I still prefer the silver torso. It is nice to mix things up this way, though.

    Yeah i miss the silver. but i fell in love with gloss black when I first laid eyes on its paint. very sexy looking. shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny.

    On another note, maybe you guys could help me out a bit. for a Masterpiece Thrust custom, how should I go about making his head "Cony" like? any one familiar to this figure would understand why Im asking this. and what do u guys think WOULD be better? MP Thrust or MP Acidstorm?

    I'd say a MP Acid Storm, since it would be easier to do in the long run, but, I'd love to see a MP Conehead. Any Conehead.

    yeah I was already siding with the Acidstorm idea. He seems more accessible than Thrust does. besides, with Thrust I'd have to make his head Cony, and VTOL gears/engines on his wings. ill leave the Thrust idea for another day then. so next UP! ACID STORM ! ! !

    so basically you just repainted an MP-Starscream?

    I thought you'd actually be making a whole new Transformer judging by the model Jet photo you had posted for a couple months or so prior.

    It looks cool for what it is but, I guess I has the wrong impression about what you were doing.

    heh what did you think I was gonna do? Im no expert customizer, just doing repaints for the moment. Though I do have 2 figures in one project where I take stuff from other figures = Heralds of Unicron. yeah MP Starscream is an F-15 Eagle. and the picture I showed ya was F-15 SE Eagle. so not much was gonna change anyways. except the new canted tails AutobotX23 is doing for me.

    Love the bio man, can't wait to see this finished. As for what's goin on with ABX23, he's really behind on a lot I think. He's makin the decals for my rotf prime, and just because good images are hard to find its taken a while to find em. There's a lot on his plate right now.
