    This is an old project I started a couple of months ago, I only articulated his fingers back then:

    I started working on him again and turned him into a statue. I totally retooled his chest with tons of parts added. His legs were also modded, now featuring A LOT of new panels to look more like the movie version.

    I will add some wires on his arms, instead of painting the sculpted ones, and the canopy will fit deeper in his chest. He also has two articulated jet engines on his back.

    More pics coming soon!

    EDIT:
    All the mods are done, basic colors as well, wires added, now the question is:
    should I just add some decals and make it a movie 1 version, or should I go for the tattooed ROTF look?

    That is gorgeous! Really love the new details and how much more movie accurate he is! But why are you turning him into a statue, and not a figure that's still poseable?

    Then don't call him a statue! :lol  But seriously, great work man, can't wait to see this one finished. Shame I don't have more cash, or I would totally commission you for one; a highly movie accurate Starscream would definitely be a grail for me, and I've always loved your work on top of that.

    This is going to be very sweet :thumbs2: 

    Personally, I hope you're going to paint him without the tattoos, but maybe subdued tattoos would be a compromise option too.

    Perhaps Reign of Starscream comic book style painted ?

    Wow man, that is really going to be awesome. Are you going to paint it with movie realism or your signature style?

    Really looking forward to this one's outcome!

    Not so sure about the tattoos yet.. can't decide.. I'll work on it as if was a movie 1 version anyway (minus the US Army decals), once it's done I'll make a choice.. maybe even a poll? haha

    Thanks man!
    I'm going for a realistic look this time around, I wanna make it look like an animatronic or concept maquette (but I did "shade" some parts, even though it won't be noticeable, unless you know it's there;) )

    Go for the TAT look bro, the 1st movie ver. is sick, is why i did it to mine also cause i couldnt figure out ow to do the tats, but i think the Tattoos give him a more EVIL-er Look. Do them.
