    With all the Siege Starscreams that have been on clearance and at discount stores, there have probably been a ton of these. Here are mine.

    Nacelle:

    Blackout:

    Sunstorm:

    And Bitstream:

    And some group shots:

    Bitstream is pretty much just Thundercracker but I've gotten pretty sick of painting Siege Seekers and don't care anymore.

    Blackout was painted with Black 2.0, one of the blackest paints in the world. He's kind of a black blob unless you get pretty close. He also needed quite a few touchups after transformation as that paint is fragile. I was very careful of the paint on all of them while transforming, so nothing is fully tabbed together in my pictures.

    Fantastic. Interestingly Nacelle is in the latest issue of Transformers and his character model is based on the Siege Seeker mold. Hooligan too.

    I should have an Ion Storm coming in next month. I only have an Earthrise TC, so here he is.

    These look great. I especially like Nacelle and Blackout (who looks like he's covered in soot and ash from a inside a steelworks chimney).

    I cut up parts from a couple of Final Faction accessory packs from Dollar Tree and glued them together. I took fans off a drone from one pack and stuck them to a couple of gun parts.

    These are amazing! Great job all around, but I really like Blackout.

    I thought those bits looked familiar. Glad I picked up a few of those packs; they're great for kit bashing.

    They're awesome! They have all sorts of guns, wings, thrusters, and cool greebly details. I'm looking forward to wave 2 coming out. There should be some good use for the vehicle, its accessory packs, and the new mech figure. I actually think the toys themselves are kind of cool. It's amazing how Dollar Tree of all stores is making it.

    One cool detail about the fans is the central spindle on them. They start out a little large but it just takes a couple of minutes of careful filing and they will fit in a 5 mm port. I do not have them glued in place, they're just pegged in and holding very securely.
