    Time for a second "lazy" repaint of Transformers Prime Starscream into another seeker. This time Skywarp is on deck.

    A follow-up to my Prime Thundercracker (which has a story of its own), this is my take on Skywarp in the Prime universe. I know that Japan is apparently getting an official version of this guy in some form, but I figured why not make one now. This one was also partially based on a digibash by UnicronFTW.

    I'm a really big fan of how his wing stripes turned out. I also threw in a concession to the "Skywarp has yellow eyes" by making the chest "eyes" yellow. He's got the best of both worlds: red and yellow :D 

    A detailed blog post about the somewhat kooky story behind this guy is up on my blog.

    Every bit as cool as Thundercracker. However, these guys need different heads. That smirk says nothing but Starscream.

    Another fine job. I can only hope that Hasbro take a cue from you and do the same giving us both Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    As for the head, I'm not bothered by it at all....like I said on your TC, Seekers (official repaints) have always shared the same styled head and face....just different colors is all.

    Anywho, great work!

    Well, it does kinda fit. It looks more like a sadistic, almost joker smile for Skywarp.
