    bare with me, as these pictures suck, all I have on me is a webcam right now.

    I started these a few days ago. Bluestreak, Jazz and Hound.

    [​IMG]

    Bluestreak is finished, I painted the hood black, forarms and waist black to match the G1 cartoon counterpart better, and slapped an autobot logo on his hood.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Jazz is getting a G1 cartoon upgrade as well. Black shoulders, dark blue stripe down the midde of the hood and roof, 1 single red stripe down the middle of those with the autobot logo in its proper place. no red stripe will be on the front of his hood. the red stripe starts on the pinty hood scoop piece.

    number 4's will be going on his door along with the stripes around the back fenders.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hound is the furthest from finished, I removed the roll cage, and doors, added some show accurate decals, and im putting a flat cover that will sit overtop the rear seats, with his gun mounted on that, so it'll be removable for robot mode. I removed the autobot logo off his front bumper cuz it clashed with the rest of the vehicle, and other cartoon accurate placed logo's. and if I can, I've got a gijoe missle here, that looks identical to his shoulder launcher, I wanna try and build him his shoulder missle launcher.

    I hope to sell these once im finished

    I've long wondered why HasTak ever chose to mold Binalt Jazz's shoulders with the white plastic.

    Not only does it look so much less "G1", it just looks so much worse

    Those look great! Hope to see better pics eventually. Are you keeping them in the boxes, or was that just to show what they'd look like packaged?

    You sold a customized Alternator for retail price?! You must have bought the Silverstreak on clearance or something.

    I was just happy to get back what I paid to make them :) 

    yeah, I think I paid 9.99 for silverstreak, and 19.99 for meister brand new from walmart and sears plus taxes. then other supplies. it worked out to about even. I still have hound to finish, I can't seem to find any kind of military weapons anywhere around my city to use for his rear gun

    yeah, I emailed ken at transrepro about launchers for bluestreak, he wanted $23 dollars after shipping for two unassembled. too expensive, I'd never get my money back out of him :p
