    This is my first heavy mod Project ever. I had only two unpainted figures left, so i decided to use Starscream.

    As you can see from the first picture, i chopped down his turret hands. I wanted to give him a more clawlike hand.

    Since the missiles couldn't launch from the hands anymore, i made these side arm turrets. They are made from some old parts i found. They can't fire either, however they can hold the missiles. i plan to mold them with clay to make them more cybertronic.

    The last pic depicts what i have so far. i plan to add more weapons or more cybertonion features. Wish me luck on finishing this!!!!
