    Generation's Skywarp Finished!!!!!!!!

    I got this guy yesterday and knew right away what I was going to do with him. I know I'll probably catch a lot of flak for this but oh well.I used the TFC F-15(Not Air Raid) as the base. It's still a wip and I'm working on the chest and head. Yes I plan on doing Starscream and Thundercracker as well.Sorry for the crappy pics but my computer is down and I had to use my cell phone.

    BIG BIG thanks to my beautiful girlfriend for uploading these for me.

    UPDATE 01/03/13:

    Added the null rays and got him finished up. The null rays come from a Masterpiece Skywarp.Thanks to spoonman for that idea.The chest is the canopy from the mold.I was going to try and have it transform into the chest but that would be to much cutting and I wanted to keep the cutting to a minimum. My solution was to build up the chest a little with styrene so the canopy can rest flat on it. I added magnets to the underside of the canopy and the chest. In plane mode the canopy simply snaps into place. One down and five to go.

    Thanks for looking

    That is a pretty awesome paint job and a rockin' (if pricey) concept for the seekers, but from the title I thought you were making some new TF character, like some kind of cross between a Seeker and Spittot or something! XD

    OMG! I love the idea! Super brave to use this mold for such a project, but oh such a good idea! Just wish you'd put up a review for this figure before painting him up; I'm still on the fence about him...
    Can't wait to see the finished work!

    You have balls. But this is pretty cool. I like how it will look good next to the Hegemon figure there. It probably looks good next to the Classics Megatron too.

    Thanks !!!!!


    Thanks.I hope so.


    Lol. Yeah I screwed up when I was typing but got it fixed.


    I thought someone had already posted one.Well speaking for myself this is one of the best third party figures.....you know what..not just third party but any figures I've bought.The quality is perfect.The engineering is beautiful.The alt mode is so awesome.You can not even see the bot parts unless you flip it over.If you didn't know it was a transformer you would swear it was a model plane sitting there. This is the same as Fireflight. The foot for Superion can actually be used as a base to display Air Raid in plane mode. Overall I highly recommend this figure to everyone.Hope that helped you out a little. Thanks for the props.


    Thank you!!!!


    Not sure about Classics Megs but I'm building these for Hegemon.You're probably right though.



    Thank you

    Thanks alot. I have the others on their way.I will be doing all six.Luckily this one was a gift and four of the remaining six that I need have been worked out in trades so I only need to buy two lol.
    Thanks for the kind words!!!!


    Thanks alot. Glad you like him

    Looks wonderful. Can't wait for more details.:thumb 

    Question: Are you also doing the Coneheads? 'Cause that would be double badass.

    This here is a reason they might just need 2 KO this figure into the seekers trio (+ recolors)
    I mean how can u ever afford the rainmakers + clones?
    Heck that would even make wanna do the Coneheads 2 :D

    Thanks. Yes I'm doing the cone heads. The figures are already on their way.


    Will do. I've got some ideas about what I might do but not sure yet.


    Thanks bud!!! I'm not doing the rain makers. I'm doing the 3 main seekers and the coneheads. But who knows,if I can score some more then maybe.

    I'm so impressed. And screw it. MP Seekers cost at best around the same price (retail, anyway). And these scale better! I wish I had the funds, talent, balls, time...eh, I'm happy I just get to see them. Keep it up!
