    Here is my Slipstream made from Generations Windblade.

    The work:
    ~cut off the landing gears on the back of her thighs
    ~sharpened the wings edges, knees and toes as well as hands and chin
    ~opened the collar a bit and trimmed the neck to allow more head moment
    ~shaped the Windblade head
    ~added the missiles and added wing mounts for alt mode
    ~holed out guns on the wings. The mold already had these numbs there looking like they could be built in guns
    ~the purple turned out to have this cool color layering in the light which I like to think comes off as a more polished look for her.

    REALLY need a new camera though. These were the best shots I could get. She just would not photograph as well as I'd like.

    Thanks for looking. :)

    Let's hope that Hasbro will do this.

    It's incredible.

    That looks awesome. Thanks for posting this. I wanted to do something similar, but was hoping someone would do it first so I could see how it came out, and yours definitely doesn't disappoint. Well done man, I hope actually we see an official repaint of this mold as SS

    I like the custom, but you should've gotten a more animated Slipstream styled head.

    I actually think the head is rather ingenious. I can definitely see some Seeker similarities in shape but the actual content of the silhouette is a unique and feminine.

    Non-sequitur: I miss spelled silhouette and when I miss spell a word I spell it correctly a bunch of times to try to learn the right way. So there was a version of that sentence with about 15 silhouettes in a row. I highly considered leaving them in just because it was funny to me. :D

    Wingblade is such a terrible figure. But I like your color layout. :)

    So, what color are you using for your Purples? Looks like Testors acrylic hot pink pearl.

    I use Model Masters Acrylic. This one was Grape Pearl. My camera really did not want to pick up the colors properly. Sadly getting a new one is way off but she looks SO much better in person. :D

    So.... It's more a blue shade than the Red that is evidently showing through, that about it?

    The purple does seem to have a little bit of a red hue to it. More so than a blue. My older digital camera just seems to pickup the highlights a little too much I guess. And it does not have a way to adjust that either sadly.

    In person you can't even see the marblizing. It's just all glossed over to a VERY nice grape purple. Unfortunate that the camera just will not see it the same way for this fig.

    Below are a couple shots from my Droid phone. First one I just took here at my desk and the other was taken during the photoshoot. You can see the slight red hues there but nowhere near what the final pics show. and you can see just how dark it was too. I was having issues with her face washing out as well so I had to play with the lighting to get something workable.

    I'm sure that just getting a new camera would be the best in the end anyway and just make due until then. No worries. :)
