    He's being done by Us and Them from TFans for me.

    I did the head modding as seen in a old Steeljaw topic.

    Here's what the finished piece will look like:

    Energon Galvatron wings were used for Steeljaw's blasters. Krylon metallic gold is the base color.

    Looks pretty cool. I plan on doing one as well. Not to keen on the gold though. I'm going with yellow instead. But your turned out beautiful reguardless.

    yeah, I admit, that's pretty, but steeljaw is definitely yellow to me. that almost looks like a lucky draw!

    I know you only commissioned this, but I think it's still a great idea. I personally think a yellow Jaguar would look ridiculous. Gold is the best color I can think of to capture the real Alt feel and the original character. I don't even know if Jaguars come in gold but I know they don't come in yellow. This makes me wish I didn't sell all my extra Alt Ravages

    Yeah, that's kind of the reason I choose gold instead of yellow. I like yellow but I wanted him upgraded alittle.

    Yeah I just checked the Jag website and the XK does come in a lighter gold but this is close enough. I like the green eyes too. I'm jealous

    Yeah, and I meant to find this page first as well: http://www.jaguarusa.com/us/en/xk/gallery/exterior_colors.htm

    I hope that helps :) 

    My current idea for Steeljaw (should I pursue it) would be to make him a silver of some sort (playing on the "Steel" portion of the name a bit more, since when I think of steel, I mostly think of silver and gray colors).

    Yea, I know The Jag doesn't come in yellow but I really don't care. The Acura Integra isn't a police car and the Ford GT doesn't have big red flames on it either. So to each their own.
