Talking Jumpstarter-mada!!!

Sometimes 2 is not enough and get in too deep, when that happens...they call for backup.

Introducing the rest of the Jumpstarter brethern. They're tough, they're mean, and they will jump into action!!!


My first 2 group shots...both have different lighting and angles.

Sorry, I had to do it this way. Trying to save on attachments space.

I have no real names for them yet. As you can see some are pretty much done, and some are at least 50% done...got a little anxious to show them off.
Sorry, I had to do it this way. Trying to save on attachments space.

Some of these Jumpstarters were junkers that I cleaned, repaired, and painted, so some don't "transform". But if you really want, I can rig it to look like it's transformed. Just make a request in this thread, and I'll get around to it eventually...

The first few obviously, of course are the ones that's the most complete or complete. Used ReproLabels' stickers as well.

First off...I gave him a unique name, as to not confuse him with "you-know-who". Of course any of you are welcome to make a story of how he rose from a generic foot soldier to become something more.

ROBOT MODE

ALT MODE (BIG FLASH)

ALT MODE (LESS FLASH)

Secondly...I was thinking of making him a medic, but maybe he's just a soldier with a hidden talent for repairs. I just gave him a generic name, maybe it'll stay or maybe I'll change it. Latch doesn't work. Silver stickers made camera flash brighter.

ROBOT MODE

Third...some of you might see it, some might not, he has a color scheme similar to Animated Sentinel Prime. Latch doesn't work. I am trying to get that broken gun handle from his left hand...I'll get around to it eventually...

ROBOT MODE

Number 4...Silver Blud...corny name I know. Better than calling him Silverwing, which sounds like Silverbolt's brother or something. Glossy silver paint made flash bigger than expected. The red was supposed to highlight the "silvery-ness" of him.

ROBOT MODE 1

ROBOT MODE 2

ALT MODE (BIG FLASH)

ALT MODE (LESS FLASH)

Number 5, and technically Number 6 as well, are the original swapped Jumpstarters. Most of you would agree of their current basic name. You obviously don't need to see them in their alt modes, do you?

ROBOT MODES

Number 7...a really bright character Kinda inspired by G1 Wheelie and G1 Sureshot. The current name is a joke, but I might keep it. The latch for transformation is broken, thus no alt mode.

ROBOT MODE 1

ROBOT MODE 2

Number 8...is an incomplete experiment, I tried giving it a color scheme of 3 distinct shades of blue. But only 2 of them came through, the 3rd blue kinda blended with his original plastic shade. Thus I named him as a "failed experiment" If you look closely you can make out the 3rd brighter blue.

ROBOT MODE

ALT MODE

Number 9....like "Silver Blud" I was trying out the glossy silver paint. it's pretty much the same figure as Top Twist but with silver highlights.

ROBOT MODE

ALT MODE

Comments & critiques (good or bad), broken links, and questions are welcome. Again, I'll get around to doing more and completing them.

Yeah, I wanted to try out a non-US G1 color scheme. The wings seemed perfect to mimic Metalhawk.

One of my favs as well.

Fun. Can I make a suggestion, if you're doing more? I have a feeling a Twin Twist could look pretty interesting painted up in Hun-Grr's colourscheme...

These are all really awesome, great paintjobs and quality! However, I think anyone who listens to the WTF@TFW podcast is asking for one thing... Dreidel Topspin!
