    Don't know if it even exists as a toy or as a bash/mod....

    But today a downloaded the new released Background that was on Seibertron FP...

    And I loved SS looking evil @ Megatron :D 

    So I googled and found 2 image/drawings...
    I was in shock and immediatly saw that I had finally found a purpose for my incomplete Cybertron Starscream and Armada Skywarp ;) 

    Behold the over 85% WIP

    ADDED:
    -removed Cyb. SS shin-plates
    -removed Cyb. SS arm gibble + mini (hinge)wings
    -made hole in Cyb. SS shins bigger to fit little lego piece to semi-partswap the wings (cuz these are gonna be a sword & shield as well)
    (also didn't know any otherway to get them all the way on the back like in the drawings)
    -added lego connector to Skywarps wings (cut 1wing to match the other) and fitted a lego connector on inside of SS tailfin/wings
    -removed and cut Skywarps cockpit to match the piece I cut away from SS
    -removed Cyb.SS lower arms and mounted the complete arm from A.Skywarp
    -used little parts forming to quickly solve the cockpit issue

    TODO:
    -muchos :D 

    UPDATE:
    In search of an extra Cyb.SS ... need those little wings, so I can also mount them inside the tailfin, so than I solved not to partform the wings....
    (maybe later I'll get back on a better cockpit solution)

    UPDATE2:
    A fellow board member spotted a new Cyb./Universe Dirge...
    That one has all the parts I need to finish this project! BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!
    Should I make a separate thread and ask for someone who wants to order this for me?
    Preferable with another order they need themselves to save on shipping cost.
    Then remove the parts I need and into an envelope to the Netherlands :D 
    You would need remove those shoulder-pads(incl.wings) + tailfins + head + weapons.
    Interested shoot me a PM? perhaps you could use the rest of the figure as a gift!

    DELICIOUS PETER SAVED THE DAY... THE SEARCH IS FINALLY OVER!!!

    UPDATE:
    I have made progress today, silly thing is I didn't use the Dirge figure :( 
    why? well I can't seem to avoid the canopy as parts-forming so then It's not such a big deal if the little wings just parts-form to I guess...
    I'm a little disappointed in myself, then again this is not gonna be displayed!

    UPDATE:
    MADE A HUGE STEP and really decided that's it's gonna parts-form :drunk 
    switched the tailwings to the front and vice versa! :) 

    UPDATE:
    OK it less partsformy now, then wings are fused and function as shins :) 
    I actually don't know how to improve more, guess smoothing it here and there!

    Totally looking forward to this. And I never imagined Armada Skywarp's cockpit matched or at least resembled WFC Starscream's cockpit. And just a suggestion, get rid of Cybertron Starscream's cockpit since there is nothing there on WFC Starscream.

    Yeah it's transparent so it could pass for one of the glowey energon parts on Starscream.

    Anyway, I like it so far and I cant wait to see how it turns out.

    Looks really good so far, keep up the good work. I think I might have an idea for the cockpit transformation. Not sure if you've ever handled him, but the Cybertron Wingsaber mold has this series of joints that cause the front part of his alt-mode to lie on his back, but facing the same way it was in alt-mode. I might draw up a simple diagram to show you what I'm getting at. Something similar should work for your purposes.

    Just out of curiosity, any plans for Skywarp's head? :drunk

    Yeah I have an Idea to but... It so complicated tough... *sigh*

    Well I do have the head and looks kewl but no purpose as of yet, but there were people out there used it to extend WFC megatron helmet to Galvatron

    I since I don't own those molds I'm not sure if I'll find another purpose...
    but yeah having lots of head is always good, better than scratch build :(

    It's complicated, but it's the simplest way I could think of to solve the issue.

    Well, if you don't find a use for it, I know I could ;)  (aka I'm interested in it, if you ever want to sell/trade it).

    Okay, for the cockpit part of Cybertron Starscream... what I meant was to do something like this:

    [​IMG]

    It's just a quick sketch in MS Paint. Anyway, the red part is where the cockpit of Cybertron Starscream should be cut off. Whereas the green part is where it should be kept. There is a slant after the main cockpit (Armada Skywarp) as shown in the picture of WFC Starscream's jet mode. After the slant, there is another slant heading upwards which means there's a raised platform. The raised platform is slanted as well, but in a gentle angle.

    As for the cockpit moving up, maybe you can use something like... you know there's this sliding thing in drawers? Maybe get a bar or two of that and attach it to the sliding platform. While the part of the sliding thing attached to the drawer is attached to the cockpit. Then there are some things to lock the cockpit in place when in front and pushed in.... or maybe you can just follow Raven's suggestion.

    don't get me wrong its really good but for a more sleek jet try positioning the arms in a different place in jet mode

    Already working on it... could be make or break tommorow ;) 

    haha... well the hands need to be replaced.. so we'll see :p 

    Well actually ... I'm already in process of bringing the cockpit more forward, since I'm not going to use the hinge method of trasforming... it should make the jetmode more accurate!

    update! ... stil some thing to work out...

    problem is I can't work as much as I want....

    because I received a Death threat today.. my window is smashed and headlight from my lovely oldtimer convertible :( 

    it's from a neighbourgh who lives 4doors futher and is 45 and over 20yrs psychiatric patient... for 3months now he stopped taking pills... and blamed the government of having satelites and bugs planted in his home and head...

    so 2days ago I noticed I cry for help, I talked to him and he said that nobody wants to talk to him anymore... so I offered help (since I'm a victim of pain for the last 3yrs because of 2dack surgery's)

    anyways I finally managed to talk him into taking the pills again and found an agreement that I'll visit 2times a day to see him take them!

    well a couple of hrs ago he went ballistic and I received and email from his father who is in England.. that he accuses me from being the source of all his problems

    So his family advices to keep all door locked and windows shut!

    waiting for the cop over more than 4hrs now .... jeezz slow @ss b1tches!
