    So, I was able to scrounge up one last Cyberverse Starscream (Cybertron version). This is a fantastic mold, with a lot of personality. I had one more Seeker I wanted to make, but I would love to make all the Seekers with this build someday. Who’s on the docket?

    why, the one with the best-worst color scheme ever: THUNDERCRACKER!

    With my experience with the Acid Storm earlier, I was able to preserve the spring loaded gimmick, Keep the parts in better condition, and even somehow was able to split the head to paint it easier. Tragically, the eyes are molded in, not peg and paint.

    I couldn’t get the wing pegs preserved, but a set of 4 small screws worked perfectly as a replacement.

    ...he also fits with my custom of a Generations TC into Shattered Glass TC.

    I also worked on a Cyberverse wave 1 Optimus, but hooooo boy that one is kind of a trash fire. I still G2’d it along with a crappy Bumblebee I found somewhere. Say hello to G2 Prime and Bumper!

    (Bumper got the gold upgrade by using Bee’s discarded Gold Bug parts)

    Radical Radicon! G2 Thundercracker always looks cool (maybe because of how ridiculous it is)
