    A special thanks to autobotx23, yourreflection, frenzy_rumble, ptitvite, kcr0177, torpedobarb, Overhaulimus, lotussoljah, and everyone at tfw2005!
    Without you guys I couldn't do things like this.

    I wrote a small story for Superion.
    Here. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-fan-fiction/282273-superion-v2.html#post4374680

    Superion is 17 inches tall and detailed to the max, I still need to do a bit of touching up (gotta love close up pictures!)

    Everything is painted using Testors Model Masters and Testors Dullcote.

    This big boy is live on ebay; Link:Transformers Custom Superion - eBay (item 130350844913 end time Dec-15-09 11:52:55 PST)

    Thanks again everyone for the comments and pressure to get finished!

    Looking great already!

    I think you should try to make the upper legs longer... maybe using Unicron´s, just to keep better proportions, or even Supreme Starscream (since you are already using pieces from him)

    Also, the chest needs to be reworked, either make it closer to Silverbolt or even Superion (just like the Universe Ultra)

    What about the limbs? all 4 are going to be seekers? what mods are you going to make to them?

    I originally went with unicron legs...but it made him lanky as hell. The length of the legs is about the same as my Devastator.
    The other bots will all be seekers...coneheads for the arms and starscreams for the legs.
    I am going to try to modify them to be a bit more G1ish but I am not really aiming for a G1
    look. I just want this guy to look armed up and rough. If anything it will look more like energon than G1.

    I am eventually going to build a straight G1 looking superion and reshell everything to be as close to G1 as I can make it.

    So far so good. Like like. You're right about Superion not having wings. Seems like he should.

    I plan on this one having a "flight mode" The wings fold forward and open wider.
    Also a "blast mode" with the planned BFG.
    I'm really excited about this one....if only the rest of my seekers were here.

    I actually kind of like the leg proportions. Looking at alot of Transformers art, the lower legs are often much longer than they should be anyways.

    You're probably going to catch some flak from people for the legs not actually being made out of the jets, but I think it works just fine.

    The legs/ feet are a mix of parts from Cybertron Supreme starscream. modified to add some thrusters on the sides, and reduce the back kibble. with parts of Unicron and the top is plastic welded to the tops of primus' legs
    I don't mind flak from people about customs...not everyone's taste is the same.
    I'm really liking this one so far. I keep staring at it and trying to think of improvments I can make without the rest of the parts. But I think I have gone as far as I can without the rest of the bots.

    Looking good so far. My only real comment at this stage would be, if possible, to see if you can fold those Seeker wings back. Maybe mods the wing connection into a ball joint with an open slot for it to be able to fold back.

    Looking forward to seeing this through.
