Custom Transformer: Leader Class Starscream by frenzyrumble

Top-rated eBay seller frenzy_rumble has posted an incredible custom Leader Class STARSCREAM figure on eBay. You've got to check out the pics of this beautiful custom that's already up to $610 with less than 16 hours to go. Here's the item description from this auction:

This auction is for the customized Transformers Leader Class Decepticon : Starscream (Revenge of the Fallen)

Every so often Hasbro hints towards a figure I am very excited to get my hands (and paint brushes) on. A perfect example is this Leader Class Starscream. What an amazing figure, by far my FAVORITE Movie-Line figure to date. The details, articulation, and entire toy is so perfectly executed, it's a must have for all and every Starscream or Transformer fan. To begin with, I removed all the "inaccurate" tattoos (patterns) on his Jet and Robot mode, then air brushed him with super-high quality lacquer base paints. I then spent several tedious hours repainting these "tattoos" (war markings) on his jet mode by hand, using images from the movie. Please check out the list of modifications and improvements made to this AWESOME Leader Class Starscream custom. Remember, all paints used in the process were lacquer and enamel, so the finish is very durable, and the colors will stay vibrant and true for many many years (keep in mind, this is a collectible, so don't throw it around!) I finished him off with several finishes of Testor's clear coats, matte, semi-gloss, and gloss variations to keep the colors vibrant and true for years and years ...always through an air brush to ensure thin, even perfect coats. I ensure the highest and most durable paint applications on all my customs. I exceed necessary preparation to these customs - Special plastic adhering primers, automotive grade lacquers and the best paints around to detail with. As always, I am accepting VERY LIMITED custom commissions and/or requests. Check out my website or contact me through ebay for details.

Modification/Feature Details :
· Hands on ball joint, at wrist allowing FULL range of motion on hands
· Fingers/hands rebuilt allowing independent finger articulation
· Clip on "rocket packs" on his back for robot mode
· Tinted cockpit window (from inside)
· Hand painted (accurate) tattoos/war markings on both robot and jet mode
· Super realistic metallic details
· Button on shoulder launches "transforming noise"
· Pulling down the cockpit in robot mode opens Starscream's mouth and chest panels
· Same button lights up his eyes (red LED), chest and thrusters and says "No one can defeat Starscream!" and "Decepticons will crush the Autobots"
· Flip out weapons on both forearms, revealing chain gun (left) and missiles (right) Ammo belt included for chain gun arm, which clips onto Starscream's back
· Right arm converts to missile launcher (see photos)
· F-22 Raptor mode's button plays engine and combat sounds and lights (red)
· Automatic "transforming" sound when converting to either mode

Descriptions are as complete as I was able to make them; the lot is sold as-is & will not be split to sell individual figures.

Featured Auction #4

TRANSMETAL OPTIMUS PRIMAL MIB Beast Wars 100% comp new

This auction from Seibertron.com is for a TRANSMETAL OPTIMUS PRIMAL from Beast Wars, which was released in 1997. This item was MISB until I opened it to do pictures for this auction. I noticed that this item had two pieces of tape on one end which caused me to be weary that it was not a MISB item. I carefully pulled back the tape so that I could verify the contents of this item. As you can see from the pictures in this auction, the item has never been used before, is in BEAUTIFUL perfect 100% complete condition, and was indeed sealed until I took these pictures. Better safe than sorry ... I just wanted to make sure that his weapons were in the package! The tape was placed back in its original position and still looks like the item is MISB.

Yes, Jin does awesome work as well. I also like Shinobitron's customs as well as EnclineDesign's. All four of them are amazing customizers, I doubt I could ever compete with them, even my custom Prime can't compare.
