    Good job!

    I like the new versions with the new colors a bit more...Your rachet looks cool though.

    You forgot to put the wings up on the StarScream in his alt mode....just a pet peeve of mine!

    They're not mine actually - they're from an auction on ebay. Originally the seller did not have bot mode pics but later he emailed them to me upon request so I just posted them here.

    And I hear you about the wrong transformation.. major peeve of mine too!

    To be honest, I kinda like Movie Screamer's existing head and color scheme better on that mold.

    Ratchet, on the other hand...I hope Hasbro mass-produces that thing. :woot:

    Nothing can top this repaint of Classics Voyager Megatron!

    He looks even cooler than the original! :eek: Almost makes me want to go out and buy one to try repainting it myself. :D

    You could always hold out hope that IF Takara does anyting with the calssics molds that Megs would be those colours.

    Yeah, but finding websites that actually sell un-modified Megatron figures (or any other "realistic" gun toy, for that matter) is a major pain in the butt. :(

    Dang, I just found that custom Megatron through a Google Image search. I had no idea that its creator was a Hype member! I love your work, Jin! :D

    This one is going to be part of the Robot Visions line like the current Target Exclusive Voyager RV Prime. There is is also going to be a RV G1 Colored Movie Jazz as well.

    I think that's a repaint of the Thundercracker figure.

    Pretty lame actually if you think about it. All they did was to put on a different head and then they sell it as a new figure.

    What's even worse, is that Thundercracker looks more like Starscream, than Starscream himself.

    I don't know. I like Ratchet the color he is, though the G1 does look cool. I think though I'll stick with Starscream the way he is and probably pick up Thundercracker and the repaint so Starscream can have his squadrin.
