    The first of what I assume will be many of this "lazy" redeco, here is my take on Transformers Prime Thundercracker.

    Originally intended to be a version of Skywarp, before the rumored Japanese release, this is a really quick repaint of deluxe class Starscream. I used a digibash from UnicronFTW and the recent Classics release as bases.

    There is a bit of a story as to how this guy came to be up at my blog if you're interested. A bit long to post here.

    Great paint job! I hope we get a TC down the line but with a different head.

    Indeed. Paint job is epic, but it really does just look like a blue Starscream.

    Wow. Epic paint job. However...

    But aside from that, wow. I can not get over that awesome paint job!

    Amazing paint job. Very crisp, very clean, very sharp. Although, Starscream is so stylized in this show it admittedly does look a bit like a blue Starscream as opposed to his own character. But the paint job is phenomenal nonetheless. Did you use acrylics to paint his rubber parts? And how did you apply that Decepticon insignia so nicely?

    I like it. Paint work looks great.

    As far as him looking like a blue SS, correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't all the seekers been "repaints" of SS....I can only think of one "repaint" that had a slightly different head/face....I dunno, maybe change the head crest?...make the smirk a lil different?...

    anywho....Looks great. :thumb

    As the owner of this fine figure, it's a hell of a lot more than just a "blue Starscream". Thanks again Andrew, your work is amazing! :thumb
