    4th one scratched off the list!
    basically a straight up repaint of energon jetfire but with a few minor mods.the stock jetfire "visor" was cut and sanded down for a more g1-ish look.the head and head mount panel area was shaved down to allow left to right movement of the head.gun barrels and cannons were added to his upper shoulder areas around his head,resulting in extra firepower for the front end of his shuttle mode.the shoulder pads now each hold 11 gun barrels fused to them.his chest area has had some spacers added to him to try to make him more g1-ish again.another gun tip adorns each side of his chest along with new vents.the original claw thing that energon jetfire had was completely removed.he does still retain the weird electronic sound when you press the button on his chest.his wings have been extended thanks to animated voyager prime's giant axe.the two black bfg's actually belong to onslaught but blastoff carries them for him.in bot mode,they attach to him with magnets.in shuttle mode,they attach by way of post and hole in a kind of "hyper/battle" mode.these 2 bfg's are made from g1 jetfire's gun.enregon jetfire's stock gun has had it's barrel extended and a scope added to it.then the satellite shaped things on the sides of the missile launcher were lopped off.it does still fire the stock missile but it's been shaved down a bit too.all black is atuomotive matte black,brown and purple's are tamiya acrylics.he's coated in krylon matte clear.

    Sweet mold choice!

    I thought I read you were gonna use classics astrotrain originally. Glad you went with this instead :) 

    Bring on Brawl!

    I have always had a soft spot for this mold and this is a very nice use for it. Good job!

    Really nice dude, I would have never thought to use that mold for Blast-off, but it totally works.

    soon enough my friend!!!

    lolz!!thanks man. i was gonna build a cover plate to somewhat "obscure" the balljoint,but i figured what the heck,the rest of them have them showing in both modes so i let it be:D 

    i was going to use astrotrain but after looking at it more,it would have taken too much work to make him bigger and taller to match the rest of the team.thankfully,i was able to snag a extra energon jetfire from a local member.

    he's coming....;) 

    thanks man!!!

    thanks!

    neither would have i had my friend not offered and donated the jetfire for the cause:wink: 


    thanks for the comments guys!!much appreciated!! only 2 more bots to go!!
