    Hey, kids!! Remember this thread? I whittled down the names that I liked, and settled on: BURNOUT!!

    You, too, can make your very own Burnout action figure!!

    STEP 1: Buy a TFTM07 Cliffjumper figure.

    STEP 2: Buy a TFTM07 G1 Jazz figure.

    STEP 3: Remove the figures' heads.

    STEP 4: Pop Jazz's head onto Cliffjumper's body.

    STEP 5: Unscrew CJ's gun, remove the gun halves, and screw back together.

    STEP 6: Rotate the doors down behind him in Robot Mode.

    Huzzah!! Your very own Burnout "custom"!! :D  :lol

    I may still give him the mouthplate that I'd wanted to originally, but for now, I'm loving him just the way he is!!

    It's funny. Very little work = nice custom. Unfortunately, I see Binaltech Zoom Zoom when I like at him though.

    That's cool looking.

    Might have to track me down a TFTM07 CJ and TFTM07 G1 Jazz just to do this.

    Nice bash man, it is really great how something like a little head swap can make a figure look so much better. That background really adds to the pictures as well, especially the first one.

    Thanks, guys!

    The background came with the G.I. Joe Sigma 6 "transforming" robot Red Banshee (first shot is Photoshopped, though). I get more use out of the cardboard insert than the figure itself!! :lol

    That is an awesome and easy bash, I like it. Also is it just me or does it look like it could double for a movie Sideswipe?

    Too many people loved the name (myself included), so I chose it without even doing a vote! Thank you! :thumb

    I was intending it to be a character outside the movie continuity. Someone who could pal around with my MP Prime, and tussle with MP SS. I want to give him a mouthplate, but the few Prime figures small enough that I can find have too hard a plastic, and I don't have anything better than an exacto knife.
