    It must be Ricochet's week. I finished this guy just before starting my Magnus for the competition and now that thats done I could take pics of this guy. Just a straight repaint of movie jazz with a door mod I learned about here. The tribal design on the car is from this reprolabels set for an alternator and the jazz sticker set was used to get the licence and exhaust pipes.

    enjoy!

    Nope, it's an actual parkade! Some from the roof of my car, others from a concrete wall. Thanks to the Metrotown security for letting me take photo's in there.

    Yup, I had a tripod set up to take really long exposures in the low light. The first location was yellow no matter what I did so I moved to whiter light. Got hassled by the man a second time but it was all good.

    ehko.

    Beautiful! I was wondering if anyone had done a Ricochet repaint of Movie Jazz yet. It looks even better than I would have expected it to! The gold grille really pops, the black paint looks really smoothly applied, and the decals are excellent.

    This is the repaint I wish Hasbro would have released in place of the upcoming Allspark Jazz (or for that matter Final Battle Jazz).

    Great work!

    turn the white to red and I would go bonkers.

    but other than that (since it would go against the color scheme) nice

    I say that is an awesome repaint of Jazz into Ricochet. He looks dangerous or that danger finds him.

    Its a gundam hand with a ball joint at one end. I use a clear elastic band from his packaging to fasten it to the claw hand in the arm. You have to remove the hand to transform him but it's easy to take off and on.

    ehko.
