    Cool, but he doesnt really look g1 because of the movie look. Some people will disagree with me though.

    It has a lot of potential. The white really makes the seams stand out, hopefully adding some striping to the hood will make it less apparent.

    I like it. I am doing something similar, only with Prowl instead of Jazz, so it was nice to see what the white looks like

    lol, I've never heard that before.

    next time you paint in white you mite want to try a primer or an undercoat of gray to make the white more uniform looking on the car. but other then that, that's a pretty fresh idea! keep it up

    Good workk. i know the paint looks a little thick to cover the yellow. Whiter always gives me a hard time over other colors, but good work. Not necessarily G1, but nice none the less.

    Looking good. I still feel the bodies(and alt modes) of movie Bumblebee and movie Jazz should have been switched. So in a way, you're correcting it the way I would. :D

    ave got more updated pics on the vehicle mode, and also ive finished painting the head so it look more G1, the head is actually off the normal movie figure jazz! when i took the pics the paint was still kinda wet and still needing another coat, im asctually using reprolabels g1 jazz stickers which seems to be woking very well ill post pics as soo as its a bit dryer

    Looking forward to the head, because I dislike the original deluxe head too and even when you can see it's the same sculpt, it's already looking better in your pics.

    Yeah paint very thick. I really like the idea though. If I ever find one of those cliffjumper repaints of this mold, I may try it.

    I love the Bot mode!! How easy/hard was the head to swap? Was it a simple pop off, pop on? I wanna try seeing how it looks in person, but I don't wanna harm my only 08 BB...

    I'm working on the same exact bash, but I can see mine will be a little different.

    Nice work!

    Just for the fun of it, I swapped heads between my '09 BB and G1 Jazz... I'm seriouly digging BB on that stumpy little body. A quick resculpt of the alt mode into some sort of VW... X3

    As for Jazz, the idea's not so interesting to me, but I would like to see where you take this. Hope to see some bot mode paint soon. ^^
