    Actually this was complete a little earlier this year but I just haven't had enough time to post some of my completed work outside of sector 70. So here he is.
    First off, thanks to everyone who threw in some input on blackjack while I was making him. This was a total and complete odd ball for me. The idea developed after playing with movie barricade for a while and figuring out various areas to "normalize" him. Blackjack as blackjack was an after thought and just seemed like the most appropriate "modernized" G1 character to fit the alt mold. The alt mode deco I went with was suggested by superquad7 and alty.
    The head came from cybertron defense hotshot. Hands are gundam 1/100s. grill came from a 1/32 diecast mustang. The round lights in the grill came from a rally style porsche. The front bumper, the rear window louvers and bot modes belly were scratch built with styrene and putty. Paints were automotive duplicolor with testors high gloss clear coat and modelmasters enamels. I designed the decals and had the talented Boggs print them out for me. Blackjack will more than likely not be reunited with his Sports Car Patrol comrades any time in time soon.
    Thanks for looking guys
