So, this is my last creation of 2012. I wanted to get this up on Christmas day, but his legs were giving me some issues. So here he is, Transformers Armada Starscream, with his mini-con partner Swindle. Enjoy!
About this creation
We begin with a side view of Starscream & Swindle in Robot modes. Starscream is currently wielding his Left Wing as a Sword, just like his in-show character and toy can. My model allows for both wings to become swords in order to keep with semetry however.
Back view of the bots. As you can see, much like many other Armada Characters, their designs are not very complex for the most part.
Top view of Robot modes.
Swindle in vehicle mode. For keeping with Starscream's space requirements, I think did a pretty good job of turning him into a dragster!
Back view of Vehicle mode Swindle.
Swindle Powerlinx! Null-Ray cannons activate!
Fire! (Laser noises)
Starscream and Swindle side-by-side in Vehicle mode.
Top view of Jet Mode. I absolutely love how this turned out.
Jet mode with Swindle attached under the cockpit, just like the toy does. However, unlike the toy, no special sound effect is played, so this is really just for show.
And yes, the Null-ray cannons Starscream is famous for can flip out in jet-mode too!
This is one Decepticon/Autobot you don't want to mess with!
So Overall, I love how this one turned out. Only thing I would have liked to do better where Starscream's wing-swords. I would have worked on them more, but as I said above my goal was to have this guy out on Christmas day, and I already missed that "deadline", so that is that. Hope you guys like him!
This is really cool! Armada Starscream is one of my Favorite TFs of all time, next to Shockwave. The head isn't incredible and lacks the best design, but unless you make a giant life size one, what can you do? It's still nice though. And the null ray cannons are amazing. The funcionality is sweet, and the Swindle Minicon is incredibly well done for it's size! The nose cone looks a little too long in robot mode which could look better if the legs were longer and collapased or something. Still! Great representation of Starscream!
