    Not the greatest, but it's better than his claws. And if I ever want his claws, the hands can be removed.

    NICE!!! Can he still transform with those hands or do you have to remove them to transform?

    Honestly... I prefer the claws. Those fists look out of place.

    I dunno... I think the reason they look slightly off is because the forearms are so long to begin with, and these new hands also have sort of a long wrist, so they look even more extended. Maybe fists that are stuck directly to the arm (no long wrist) would smooth the proportions a bit.

    Good job though! I need to try something like that!

    Yeah, I think the long wrists kill it.

    It's a start, but i have to agree that the long wrist and non-intergrated transformation make it iffy. I think the main problem is the entire forearm assembly/transformation itself, as opposed to specifically the hands.

    Has anyone tried this with old 1/144 scale Gundam hands? The ones made out of the soft plastic? They might be just small enough to squeeze into the transformation without having to remove them.

    Even with the shorter hands though, it's showing how his forearms are still awkwardly long (to say nothing of the poor articulation). I'm thinking that there's no easy fix for Jazz's arms... some more extensive kitbashing might be necessary.

    However, I DO think that this figure is actually good enough to warrant going through the effort to make him "perfect" :)
