I tried, but I have to stop for today, because my wrist hurts now.

The problem I'm having with Silverstreak is it keeps looking too much like Thundercracker, particularly in jet mode.

I suddenly find myself wondering how that Legacy Cybertron Starscream mold would look in Leader-1 colors.

But not the regular/cartoon Leader-1, oh no.

This Leader-1. The one I had as a kid.

...okay, I had the Super GoBot in the regular colors, but still. I always liked this version.

The Fun Pub Facebook feature Renegade Rhetoric had written an episode for its virtual Season 2 in which Leader-1 and the others who had alternate toy color schemes acquired those colors.

Ah, yeah, I loved that one.

And I just like the look better overall. It stands out more, and he kind of has this look of importance to him, especially with all those stars.

Blue Leader-1 was my Leader-1 as well. Would love more references to that color scheme!

A Third Party add-on for the Classics Seeker had Leader-1-ish head and wing hinges (in addition to THAT Crown, THOSE shoulder pads, and a cape), and I decided to go with the second scheme to cut down on the painting. Just had to cannibalize a Generations Thundercracker and Dirge for parts.
(Imaging doing that in 2007)

An old pic, before I tried to paint the head.

Neat!

Still curious about the Cybertron version, though, since Leader-1 should probably technically have a more alien alt mode (as most of them should, for that matter).

I picked up a cheap War for Cybertron Sparkless Seeker from Walmart and plan to make him a custom Seeker to fill out one of my squadrons. Anyone want to digi-bash a few ideas for me of a cool color scheme? I have a few ideas of my own, but I thought I'd see what you all can come up with.

I wonder how doable a pair of retooled shoulders would be for the mold.
You know, it would be totally inaccurate to his Lamborghini vehicle mode, but I could imagine that very digibash, head and all, working as a base for RID 2001 Prowl digibash.
