    I did this project as a "skill builder". I had no idea how to sculpt or add parts to a toy. After doing this project, I still only have a tiny idea, but I'm better off than I was before. Anyway, amatuer mistakes aside I think it came out well. I "Bugattified" the alt mode to look more like the real thing, gave it a Bluestreak color, and then modified Crosswise's arms and head to look more like Bluestreak. Most of the work was done to the rear of the car. Some hood sculpting was shaven off and smoothed over. Anyway, here he is.

    That looks awesome, very much like Bluestreak.

    One crit, I'd make the lighter shade on the alt mode a different color, either lighter or darker like the rest of the car. The way it is now, it looks like unpainted primer.

    Does he have electrical tape around his elbow joints? It looks cool, and it's a nice idea if it holds up!

    While I see what MMM is saying... I think it's absolutely beautiful. That first picture just SCREAMS G1, too. I am thoroughly impressed.

    I like how you have the doors so it's got a similar Bluestreak look. And the shoulder-mounted rocket launchers are absolutely perfect. Very nice job. :)

    but I missed the mark by quite a bit with my paint mixing (another skill that needs help).

    Excellent work. Much more faithful rendition of the Bugatti than Crosswise. That's really amazing.

    He REALLY looks like Bluestreak. Heck, he looks more
    like comic book Bluestreak than G1 Bluestreak does.
    I am referring to the robot mode, of course, and
    particularly the first picture.

    And I thought he could only look good as Jazz. I guess you have proved me wrong.
