Custom Autobot Starscream....Starfire

This is a custom repaint of Universe Starscream...The Autobot version of Starscream...STARFIRE!!

He is hand painted with enamels. Articulated hands and a LED lavablast cannon.
Character Bio: Starscream was frustrated with not able to overthrow Megatron...he decided to switch to the Autobots faction just to "show" that Megatron cannot defeat him if he was with the opposition side, that he was the main reason why Autobots cannot defeated the Decepticons. He wanted to prove that he was a better leader.

True enough, alongside with Jetfire, he led the Aerialbots into a convincing victory in a battel where Dirge and Thrust perished.

Incorporating the Starburst pulse cannon into his arms and fists, he surprised the Decepticons when he pulverised Thrust in a single blast. To top that, the lava blast cannon which perceptor gave him demolished the fleeing Dirge...

But given the traitor he one knows for how long he will stay an Autobot.....

Some Bio on Battlestars: Return Of Convoy...

Battlestars: Retrun Of Convoy is the penultimate part of the Japanese Transformers continuity and features the rebirth of Convoy (optimus Prime) as Star Convoy. Alongside his cybertron (autobots) allies, Star Convoy battles the evil super Megatron and the mysterious Dark Nova.

Battlestars depicts Convoy revived by the Destrons (Decepticons) after his death in Headmasters initially as the evil False Convoy. He battles the Cybertrons but is defeated and then reborn as the Ultimate Cybertron Commander Star Convoy with Zone Energy. Star Convoy is also reunited with Hot Rodimus (Hot Rod) as his micromaster partner. Galvatron, thought to be buried alive and trapped forever in the Arctic during hedamasters, is reformed into Super Megatron by Dark Nova and proceeds to battle with Star Convoy and the other Cybertrons, including Grandus, Skygarry and Sixliner.

After initially defeating the cybertons, Super Megatron gets subsequently destroyed by them. Dark Nova then rebuilds him into Ultra Megatron. Despite being even more powerful than before, Ultra Megatron is again defeated by Star Convoy and the Cybertrons, but in near-death, merges with Dark Nova to become Star Giant, a six-armed, tentacled mechanical beast. Star Convoy and the Cybertrons battle and eventually defeat Star Giant, ending the series.

Star Convoy is briefly mentioned in the sequel Operation Combination, as having left Earth to do battle with the mysterious, next Destron Emperor of destruction Scrash in outer space.
