    always found it weird that they were planning this for G2, when I think G2 I think about bright neon colors like some kinda 90s lisa frank acid trip

    I think my one complaint is that tan arms + tan hands is too much tan IMO. I would've made the hands black, just to break up the monotony a little.
    But I like him! Can't wait for mine to ship.

    Some black null rays probably would have helped break up all that tan, too. From what I've seen, the Nonnef ones made for the regular Ramjet would probably work well here (Tho I think they're sold in a set with Dirge, sooo...)

    Who would have ever thought we would get a G2 Sandstorm ? If you would have told me this 2 years ago I would have said no way since Botcon is dead. But then again, who would have thought we would see Gucci Mane and Jeezy in the same room performing So Icy together ? I must say 2020 is srarting to look better and better. Cant wait to see what 2021 holds after Kingdom...

    It’s funny you say that, because this the only paint scheme I actually like this mould in.

    The fact its sold in a set makes it perfect, at least for me, since I picked up 2 sets (Dirge and Ramjet, Sandstorm and Thrust).

    Indeed.

    Although it could be argued the G2 promotional art does use a traditional seeker head.

    But then, so do G2 Ramjet and original coneheads. So the confusion is possible.

    I might have to hunt down another Starscream so I can give one of my Sandstorms the non-conehead and make one "prototype accurate" and add the purple accents and the grey feet and have the two Sandstorms be like a twin duo team.

    it doesn’t work that way. The nose cone of the conehead and the regular nosecone seeker are different. The conehead version is remolded to accommodate the new head. You can’t just swap them out and hope they fit and the purple isn’t part of the figures deco. It’s just a purple ramjet hand painted tan. It’s not intended to be visible.

    this is the actual deco of the figures concept

    you don’t need to add anything. No purple no grey

    The G2 Blackdeath/Blackout? Prototype would be cool.

    I'll just cut the opening to be bigger to accommodate the square head, looking at the two versions of the mold it looks incredibly simple to do.

    I'm aware, I like the purple as an accent, Ill do what I want.

    Too much work, I'll never finish it. I aim for small simple custom projects because I know what my attention span is like. (its awful)

    Repainting an entire figure vs a headswap and very minor color accents. My attention span sucks man, if I cant do the whole project within an hour (including drying times) I'll never finish it. I've got things sitting on a shelf that are upwards of 5 years old that I haven't touched.

    its not that painting it black would be difficult, its that it would take too long for me and I would simply lose interest/motivation
