    things i did was dremel the neck for much better head movement. then i simply painted his face silver and head black. i finished by painting the white areas to the left and right of his neck (where the hood covers). gave him a random gundam laser sword. the end. zedz

    Looks nice, I'm still waiting to see if Repro Lables puts out an upgrade sheet with all of his original G1 tags for the Animated mold.

    I miss the traditional rabbit ears too... but it looks good! Also, I don't have this figure yet, so I wonder if ears would even fit?

    Though it's sort of interesting... painted black, his head TOTALLY looks like a ninja now. No facemask, but it's amazing how that "kangol cap and headphones" design becomes "shinobi hood" with the addition of some black paint. :)

    i was thinking kangol hat last night, but thought it would go right over ppls heads. thats funny. there is just enough room on the head for 2 raised areas but only slightly. i was going to put a shoulder cannon on him, but his physique doesnt look right w/ one. i also toyed w/ the idea of painting his thighs silver, but decided against it. even thought about putting an autobot symbol on his crotch but it would be too redundant.

    i think a reprolabel g1 jazz set would be great. i'd buy another one just for that set. i would also like to see a full blown G1 jazz set for the new silver binal jazz. but all colors would be totally metalic and clear back. maybe redesign it so it not so many broken lines like the last one. ugh!

    he never had rabbit ears until the movie line. all you had to do was shave them down, and it actually looked great.
