My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

I had some spare KO seeker parts after I got replacement parts for some broken ones. I realized I could do something cool with them!









The original Starscream KO looked like this:

The arms and lower legs are from the Thundercracker KO; I did not paint the Starscream limbs. The face and torso were painted using Formula P3 paints.

fantastic...I know it will defeat the purpose, but could you slap his wings back on and take an alt mode pic. sort of an Action Master Starscream before the AM "upgrade"

I'm not sure I see the point in leaving the wings off of a viable transforming toy just to make it more "Action Master", but it does look good.

I was going to say the opposite and suggest removing his feet wings.

I kept the foot wings on for balance, actually. He doesn't have much foot without them.

I had a heavy decision between what you see here and having him still transform. If he did transform, the colors would have been pretty mismatched. I'm not sure if I would have gone for a jet mode that was more Starscream or Thundercracker colored. I will actually reuse the wings on another KO figure whose wings were broken. I plan to take a picture of what I have right now pending being designed and painted, it might help to make some more sense.

Basically I had the kotoys.com three seekers (skywarp, thundercracker, and starscream) and two ramjets (one orange, one white). The white one has a broken leg. Skywarp and TC arrived each with one broken wing (though I have received replacements from kotoys, awesome). So now with some swapping and modding I have...

The AM Starscream you see here.
Skywarp body with Starscream wings and possibly Ramjet arms (one Skywarp has two right fists)
Thundercracker/Starscream mismatched body but with Ramjet wings

All I will have leftover is some mismatched wings (some broken), the blue ankle wings, and the Starscream nosecone... I think. Anyway I won't be very wasteful. icon-hotrod.gif

What was the decision for giving deluxe Starscream more black on his lower legs than on the AM? And there is no grey just above the deluxe's waist like there is on the AM. I can forgive the silver on his feet and the painted air intakes though but I consider the previous two points to be inaccuracies. He would also look a lot better with a Decepticon insignia on his left shoulder.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Interesting points. Perhaps I will make those changes. All of the paint or lack thereof (with the exception of the red chest, blue pelvis, and yellow air intakes) was that way on the original. I did not consider adhering quite so closely to the original, but I can and probably will put a symbol on at least.
