    I love this little figure. He has more personality than any Starscream figure I have ever owned!
    I gave Starscream here a light detailing job to make him a bit more screen accurate by touching up his head, shoulders, knees, missiles, and feet. Used different types of paints on the hard plastic and rubber parts to avoid any bad paint reactions.
    Mostly though, I just wanted to take some pictures of him in various fun poses. :)

    Nice! Really surprising how much of a difference a little red and blue here and there can do :)

    Neat! I like the darker shoulders. Also you forgot to peg his neck in.

    I don't think he added any blue, actually.

    I can't wait to start finding these. I think SS is an excellent little figure. You did a great job on the details.

    Thanks guyz!
    I really didn't do much. The figure was already great. I just added a few simple things I thought would make him look a tad bit better.

    Yep, the blue was already there. I know his neck can be pushed in 1/6 of a cm but it worked better for posing this way. :)

    I dislike it when they dont push his head all the way in. It just looks unnatural. Kinda like a neck on top of another neck.

    On the mods. LOVE THEM. Will take mine out and paint him like hell.

    Jeeze really? We are talking about like 2mm difference and I was able to pose his head better this way... Didn't know it was such a noticeable problem worth mentioning.
    I'll be more careful from now on i suppose.

    Oh I really thought you were like "lol I agree about the neck", but its no problem anyway.
    Its just that if a couple of people alert me to something i'm doing wrong, I try to do better next time. :) 

    I do appreciate the kind comments. I'd sure like to get that Fakebuster83 set for this guy!

    Unicron9 what type of Paints you use for the knees and the missiles. Also it looks spectacular with those paint touch ups.

    I just used cheap acrylics since they work well on the rubbery parts, were only needed for a few small details, and this was just a quick touch up for my own collection.
