    Thundercracker is a full repaint of Universe Masterpiece Skywarp,
    the wing stripes are custom stickers I made and printed out, as
    are the Con symbols.

    I have wanted to see Thundercracker finally get some respect, as
    far as any G1 representation of him goes, there has been none from
    Hasbro, since the Commemorative Series, but no modern incarnations.

    I like the blue on the Takara release, but the rest of the color
    scheme is blah to me, plus I don't have over $100 to pop on him.

    so here he is, my representation of G1 Thundercracker, a kind of
    realistic colored toon version, using a darker blue.

    Very nice and clean job, it looks fantastic like Hasbro had it pressed themselves.

    This looks REALLY nice and slick :thumb 

    I particularly like this photo, as it reminds me of the mail-away catalog:

    very clean, very nice. I shelled out the dough because I don't have the modding skills, but if I did, I'd be going for Thrust Dirge Ramjet and Sunstorm as well.

    This one sold a while ago, I didn't stripe the tail wings because I was going for the toon
    look, also why I didn't do the nose in black, but also going for a realistic look as well, which
    is why I went with the more subdued blue instead of a brighter toonish blue.

    that was what I was trying for, it was my first above Voyager custom, and I wanted it to
    be right, so there was a few things I left black, but I liked how it turned out. I am actually
    doing another one for a client now, better than this one was. I will be posting him as soon
    as I get him finished hopefully in a few weeks now that the weather is better and I can
    finish painting.
