    Like I said in my Starscream thread, I absolutely love the Siege Seeker mold, can't get enough of it.

    This is just a full repaint (and also a faceswap with Starscream, the smirking face fits SS much better and stoic one is more TC to me) using mostly Createx colors and testors/model masters for detailing.

    I like light blue Thundercracker as much as anyone, but I wanted a little bit of a deeper, more metallic blue so it's a blend of three different blues to get this shade.

    Hope you like it!

    Personally I hate this mold. But it does look better now

    I'm not a mega-fan of the alt mode, but I really like the bot mode enough to kind of look past all the glaring flaws :lol

    Thundercracker looks much better with the correct face! Also I guess Im the only person who likes the alt mode. I think it is a cool update to the original.

    Beautiful work! That custom shade of blue looks awesome. I think the alt mode is cool too, and I think the robot mode is better than the Earthrise mold that just came out.
