    Based on the classic scene from Transformers: The Movie, painted in several shades of grey for a black and white "dead" look, cell shaded, panel lined and with an all new face. The cape is also custom made.

    All rub points were sanded and it also had its hip kibble modded, with no effect on either mode (stands perfectly in robot mode and the alt mode looks intact)

    (btw, this was originally a Skywarp)

    bad-ass, I love the color. Just a thought, you could burn up a wing and have it look like he's crumbling!

    Looks great! You should also make flakey chips form when he falls apart.

    I really need to figure out how to do the hip mod.

    Awesome! Kind of reminds me of real fighter jets before their painted!
    But I gotta ask, if he's supposed to be dead, why does he need a cape? Also, shouldn't he be missing his right foot?

    That is so sweet! I don't think I've ever seen anyone repaint Starscream to look like he's dead.

    I've thought about taking a G1 figure and just painting it primer gray for a tomb-look. I'd like to say again that this is awesome!

    very nice, and very unique.

    It would be neat to see the physical figure being damaged and crumbling.

    looks awesome, shame he never really dies lol

    one thing you could do to add more to the effect is take the cape (if you wouldn't mind ripping it to shreds) fray it all around and perhaps put little metal wires through it to hold it up in shreds as when Galv. fired.

    Damn dude. Another Masterpiece. It would have been cool to paint lines and make it look like he's breaking apart.
