    Firstly, y'all need to know that I'm not a fan of seekers' endless repaints, but I actually was thrilled to do a properly feminine Slipstream out of clunky ER 'Scream. She was an another part of one big commission I worked on more than a year, finishing her right before 2024.

    [​IMG]

    The owner wanted an "ideal modern chug Slipstream" out of HIS favorite seeker mold, so he sent to me GS Ramjet and ER Skywarp to combine them the way he intended: typical body of the seeker, but with knee pads from cone-heads to imitate "the high boots" effect.

    In terms of deco I decided to try a combination of Slipstream's two secondary main colors. I think it's a pretty good way to distinct both modes and slim up the robo-mode a bit.

    The actual reason why he came to me with such specific task is that I was the only one he personally knew and could reach without any international shipment(*), who could... Well, make out of shitty ER seeker a proper fembot the way he wanted, without turning her in some skinny college girl and lack of stability.

    It took quite a LOT of time to sculpt new thighs and body using stock parts, but I've managed to complete that, while not sacrifice the endurance of the chest piece. Besides the obvious changes, I also add jet's back tail thins on Ramjet's feet via ball joints, so now they can seat a bit more closely to the legs even during posing.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    To achieve that, I sliced a good chunks of plastic to make arms seat a bit more narrow, to attach Ramjet's vents on 'Warps tits and the back toes on shoulders to buff them up in the way original ER Starscream only dreamed of!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The "feature" of thighs are... Striped stokings. Yep, it's my idea that commissioner completely approved.

    Obviously, she's still transformable even after all adjustments. :D

    Honestly, even after everything I did to the figure, I don't like ER seekers. But the experience was hella a lot of fun, so hope I can do some weird things with their bodies once again!

    Superb work! Great painting and I love the newly sculpted parts, they make her distinct and feminine without giving up the seeker bulk and power.

    That's amazing! I want one myself. Especially considering her next Hasbro offering will be done with the Legacy Cyberverse Windblade mold.

    This is pretty much the best slipstream made so far I think.
    It’s very inspirational.

    While we at it, here`s some pics of the progress, which was quite fun overall.

    Generally I`m more active on my X ( ...former Twitter... ) account, but I`ll consider putting there up my other projects too. Mainly because I want to show at least somewhere how it was done... =~=

    i might actually buy another
    i might actually get myself another ramjet to take another shot at my own after seeing this.
    my approach was to completely replace the torso with something more feminine, but you just slightly modified it. which overall is probably easier than what i was attempting.

    That's very amazing. Being one of my favorite characters, that's basically my dream girl.

    I would love to see that!
    Yeah, just slightly different chest piece would work only in benefit of it's endurance and stability. Plus it would be easier to establish new connection for the arms to peg in.

    If I may, your idea with even slimmer torso could've actually work if it was done on the original seeker's frame with arms from different fembot, not the ER Scream's one.

    Ive actually got my eyes on a coronation Starscream right now for the slimmer hands. but even if i don't end up using the hands at least ill have a seeker to figure to use to try again with. and i can always still swap some of the bits from the ramjet i already have, mainly the nosecone. for the blue cockpit.

    If the was a way of making the arms less blocky it would look even better imo, that said looks amazing as it is.
