    I know this guy has been done to death especially with the reprolabels set but he still wasn't G1 enough for me (looking past the fact he is a Mazda of course). I'm too scared to do a reshell (at the mo anyway, gonna attempt Sideswipe at some point in the near future) so just on paint alone I think this is about as close as he's gonna get.

    Just need a shoulder cannon now!

    Sometimes I wonder if the feet were suppose to be transformed like that.

    Yeah, me too... my Alt Jazz has his legs configured this way as well. I much prefer the appearance of this arrangement to the clown-shoe effect of his official transformation.

    I love the idea of painting the seats silver to get that added G1 accuracy! However, it looks like you're just popping the rear doors off and sticking them to the sides. Is that right?

    Cheers guys, much appreciated! :) 

    It's exactly the same as any other repro labled Jazz, all the paint alterations are on the robot.....bar his red grill lol

    Yeah the seats are configured pretty much where his feet are on the G1 toy, I had to pull those doors off they were bugging me and covering his 'feet' so are stuck onto the side to give a bit more chunkiness, again like the G1 toy. They easily pop on and off tho :)  I am adding a spoiler from a Shockblast junker I'm getting later today too, then I can concentrate on bulking Sunstreaker up!

    Does anyone know whereabouts do ppl get those elbow socket joints from I've seen on some customs? I think that is pretty much the only thing I can think of to make him better.
