    Paints Used:
    - Black Gloss Acrylic
    - Gold Metallic Acrylic
    - Green Gloss Acrylic
    - Lt Green (mix of green gloss and yellow gloss)
    - Purple Gloss Acrylic
    - Red Gloss Acrylic
    - Silver Metallic Acrylic
    - Sky Blue (mix of 3/4 white gloss and a tiny amount of blue gloss)

    Well here it is another rendition of the Shattered Glass Thundercracker color scheme, this done it's now in the form of Fall of Cybertron Starscream. I gotta be honest this was probably the most fun I ever had in painting up a figure. I dunno, maybe it's the silly and goofy color scheme.

    Damn you, Z! Beautifully nauseating as always. May they continue to release new seeker molds for you to desecrate.

    Very accurate paint display,looks nice. I always wondered what happened to Thundercracker in SG that he came out the paint factory looking like a bag of skittles?

    I know I've already expressed on FB and here on TFW in other sub-forums how much I love these repaints by you...

    Just figured it was worth saying it again, 'cause it is that awesome. :thumb

    I already have another spare Starscream and I've been thinking about doing a G2 Ramjet homage.

    Thanks, now I could definitely use a bag of Skittles.

    Well to be technical he never was G2. However given the crazy color scheme he'd easily fit right in.

    Thanks for the wonderful feedback mates. I got another Shattered Glass Thundercracker in the works. This time its gonna be the HFTD leader class Starscream and yes you're eyes may end up bleeding from the sheer craziness.

    :D Now that's a great repaint. He looks like the con formerly known as Thundercraker. Now he's the new mascot for Fruit-ergon Loops. See kids in the SG universe Thundercracker still doesn't want to play war games. So he came to Earth, started hanging out with Tucan Sam and Captain Planet& got himself a career in advertising. His new name is now "Fruitius", and with enough UPC codes from Kellogs Fruit Loops u too can have your own" Fruitius the hipster Ecocon" action figure. Lol...I should get a job in marketing and advertising. Get a deal going with Hasbro, Skittles, Kellogs & ToysRUs and take this to the next level. Ahhh I'd buy it. LOL hahahahaaaaa

    I've been considering for a while selling it since I already have the RID version painted up. Haven't thought about how much I would charge but if anything it'll be cheaper than expecting one from Takara and it won't cost upwards of $100.

    It would be awesome if Hasbro made this color scheme an official figure. Though chances are should that ever come to fruition then it'll probably end up as a convention exclusive and will probably cost an arm and a leg.
