hi guys,long story short,i recently aquired a extra first release of classics starscream.unfortunately the guy i got him from tried to paint it himself.i ended up putting ss into a quart can full of 90 proof iso alcohol and forgot about it for 4 days.all of the paint the guy used is gone but so is all of the factory paint.now it kinda looks like a prototype tf.heres the question....do i...

do battledamage and thrash him up a bit ala "TTT"?
do a "ghost of ss version?
do a realistic repaint?
do a cartoon accurate version of ss?i did already do thundercracker,skywarp and sunstorm already(just havent posted pics:o )and thats why i want the end result to still be starscream but a different version than the hasbro.what should i do???? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:)

bot mode.i did rip him all apart before the 4 day iso bath and thats why he still has silver paint on the cockpit.

funny thing about this mode is after the bath,i found out that his thrusters are actually a blue plastic like his forearms.that and his wings silver plastic doesnt match his fusalage's silver platic.

Starscream's ghost would be cool.
Did you soak the figure whole or did you take him apart?
I'm kinda surprised the silver is still on the yellow canopy.

i did take him apart completely for the soaking and the only 2 pieces that i didnt throw in was the cockpit chunks.(i almost stabbed my finger knocking out the pin that holds in the front chunk of the cockpit:mad: )

I hear you on that one.
Go figure it's the smallest pin and one of the hardest to get out.

Starscream's Ghost sounds cool, but how would you do it, other than paint him white, light grey or pearl white? Another idea is to make one of those generic, blue-grey seeker henchmen that were in the G1 cartoon. There's a lack of those toys.

Leader-1. :D I haven't seen anyone repaint this mold into a Leader-1, so that would be cool to see.

Although I'd like to see some BD action I gotta go with Ghost.
Check out page 9, post 86 in my thread, I did a ghost Alt. Jazz a while back.
Hope that helps :D

dangit!!!now i'm going to have 2 more classics jets join this one.i just aquired the henkei versions of thundercracker and skywarp,but i did a custom set of them already from the hasbro ss when it came out a few years ago.now the custom ones i did i may end up stripping them down too.what to do?????i kinda want to do the "zombie"seekers now.they were seen in the very last issues of the dreamwave g1 comics before they went out of business.those zombie seekers looked virtually unstoppable!!!seriously though,what do i do????

Hmm...since you have a set of three, I would go with the rainmakers for 2 of them (to complete the trio), and I'd still go for Leader 1 for the last one.

Although you're right, those zombie seeker things were kind of cool...

as in your other seeker thread, you should paint one as a Kryptonian Seeker. using a superman cape like you did with your partial coronation SS. :D
