    Here'ws my latest in my Jazz collection, Jazzimus Prime! EDIT - Now Maestro Prime thanks WhiteMocha!

    Made from an Ultra Magnus, cast of the Botcon Jazz head and a junker KO Black Konvoy. Because the parts worked out so well I needed very little paint and the head was pretty easy to attach.

    After making this guy I decided that I'm going to start a post JP era custom display where I think Starscream or Thundercracker will be in charge of the 'cons. Any ideas are welcome but I want it to be mostly season 1 maybe 2 figures in the display

    Not sure why but the blue paint on the kness seems to look purple in the photos but it's the same as the visor color. Also I need to do a touch up here and there, add a faction symbol and maybe add a red stripe somewhere. Let me know what you think.

    Wow, awesome and creative! :thumb 

    Kind of wish you could've fit RTS Jazz's speakers somewhere in there though.

    awesome! im a big jazz fan. i imagine this is what he would look like if he was passed on the matrix of leadership instead of hotrod. only comment i have is maybe throw in a little more red in there and of course his number 4 decal maybe on the sides and on the windvane. but nonetheless a great job!

    Man, that head might lend itself to a Machine Wars OP. Cool idea.

    That works way better than I expected. And your paints are super sharp.

    Surely you mean Hip-Hoptimus Prime..? ;) 

    While I wouldn't really envisage Jazz working as a truck like this (I would expect his Matrix upgrade to be more like a monster truck pickup or something), the head does fit well on the body, and the colourscheme really helps reinforce it as Jazz. Pretty sharp. :thumb

    That looks great! Really sharp! Though, heh, I think he needs a better name than Jazzimus Prime. What about Maestro Prime? Wasn't his Japanese name "Meister" sort of derived from "maestro?"

    Oh, hey, for the trailer you should spring for one of those MP3 Convoy Speaker Set iPod docks. It's the perfect trailer for Jazz! And it even came in white. You could get decals printed that look like the pattern on Optimus' trailer, but with Jazz's stripe pattern. :)

    I really like the idea you have here. Maybe adding a spoiler to the back like energon rodimus, a red stripe and some number 4's on the side will make it a litlle more jazz like.

    Thanks
    Thanks! I'm working on it
    Not sure I want him to rock the speakers because he has a more serious tone now but it's not a bad idea to explore. I do have an extra set of speakers from my Stepper custom
    Yeah still trying to figure out the more red part
    Thanks
    It might indeed
    thanks
    Thanks a lot
    Haha not bad for a fun name. Not sure what a Porsche upgrade would be but yeah this was just kind of easy
    Not sure about that
    Maestro Prime is pretty awesome! I was thinking Jazzimus was kind of weird. The MP3 trailer is a great idea too, not sure how well it will fit though and it's kind of spendy
    Thanks, yeah not much as far as paint was added after the parts swap.
    Thanks. Some kind of spoiler might be cool.

    That IS pretty cool. I think the truck mode definitely needs something jazzier. Not sure what though.

    Scattimus Prime would be a cool name. :)

    I get why you say Scattimus Prime would be cool but scat is another term for poop so it's kind of tough to go there even though scat is a type of Jazz style and Scatman's name.

    Tough call really if I weren't already set on Maestro Prime.

    Scat is also a type of singing.
    Looks awesome, colours really fit him. A red pinstripe and his "4" decal are all I would suggest.
