    This is one I did a little while ago, but thought I'd show it.

    Ever since I got them one Christmas when I was a kid, I've loved Skystalker and Countdown. When I was finally able to get ahold of a cheap Jazz, I decided to turn him into my favorite Decepticon Micromaster.

    Here he is in car mode. Just a note, since the pictures were taken, I've added a small 'Con insignia where a hood ornament would normally be.

    You can't really make it out from the picture, but his liscense plate is from Montana, "Big Sky Country."

    And the robot mode:

    The head and spoiler are from a spare Silverstreak, with Jazz's visor added. The head just baaaaaarrrrreeeellly fits into the car mode, but it goes in.

    That is very cool, I should have picked up some extra Jazz's to do stuff like this.

    Awesome, I always thought the Micro Masters were and untapped source of uh... "auto"cons.

    Wow. I love the color on that guy and from what I can make out the heads look pretty similar. I like it a lot. The paint looks really clean too. Glad to hear the head fits because I was thinking about making an alt cliffjumper from jazz/body and silverstreak/head. Cheers!

    I love seeing obscure characters remade, nice work! The colors look sweet in bot mode and the head is pretty cool

    Thanks! Yeah, if you want to get his head into his car mode, you have to do some creative positioning. It only fits in if turned sideways and at about a 45 deg. angle. But no one ever said transforming would be comfortable. I had been planning on just using Jazz's head due to the visor being on it, but then I noticed how strikingly similar alt Silverstreaks head was to the original Skystalkers, so the visor had to move.

    Great job on this one ! ! !
    The paint, the head/mod...awesome ! ! !
    Maybe a decepticon symbol added to his shoulder(s) would cap it off.
