    Got Screamer on clearance for $13 today......glad I finally bought him, thankful I didn’t pay full price and reaffirmed that I need to wait for a bargain before pulling the trigger on Elita1.
    My love of combiners is really the only reason I went ahead and got him

    Since it seems like TDW is never going to release their Starscream kit, I decided to grab the PE kit so he wouldn't be my only combiner using those terrible CW/PotP hands and feet. IMG_1045.JPG IMG_1043.JPG

    How did you do the skywarp chest minion. I had a similar idea but am not as creative.

    I'd post some pictures if I were at home. Unfortunately I'm still at work so I'll try and explain it the best I can.

    Turn screamer's torso around backwards. Open up the panels on his robot mode legs like you would in vehicle mode. This will leave a gap between his robot mode knees and his torso. Skywarp's arms are shoved into those gaps. They don't quite fit perfectly though, so he's prone to falling off if he wobbles too much. As for Skywarp's configuration, just fold the nosecone in and spread the legs out however you see fit.

    That description actually helped really well. Using the pics you had posted, I can see how the arms go in now. Thank you so much.

    I totally was going to make a speech bubble of "looking for the milkman and the paperboy" but I thought it was too focused that potentially not enough people would get the joke

    Mad respect for that joke. If you don't get it, you didn't grow up during one of the best times for TV...

    It's a lyric in the theme song. Who doesn't know that insipid, earworm, mind burrowing theme song?! Great. Now it's humming along in my head.
