Anybody care to take the above pic and shop it into Starscreams colors?
Actually, I seem to recall having seen something like that before so you may be able to hunt it down on Google Images or some such site.
Also, glad to see another "early 70's" fan on here. I was staring to feel like one of the "Old Guys" on the site (1973 for me) what with so many teens, tweens and twenty-somethings on here.
Wouldn't mind getting the redone SkyStriker except that 1) I have no room to display it and 2) I'm anal about the fact that the original 'Screamer is an Eagle and not a Tomcat. I know, that's nitpicking, but for me I just feel some things like that shouldn't be messed with.
