    Hi all,

    I've been tweaking this for a while. I decided to not go with adding any kind of ground effects or extra spoiler add ons. This is a WIP stripping down of the Henkei Alert mold with an Energon Downshift head. I do have a set of clear wings to attach to the back that I got a while back from Broken Arrow Toys that I haven't gotten around to doing yet. The back will be getting the red paint stripped and replaced w/ dark green and the shoulders will have the red paint removed as well.

    I've been working w/ Delta on making these decals but need to do some refinements yet.

    Thought everyone would like to see my new take on this. The graphics are a hybrid of different Alitalia race cars, so it gives a good update.

    Enjoy,

    - Gregg

    It's a shame considering what that figure was going for. What did you do with his lightbar?

    I'm personally waiting for Red Alert to show up here cheap, but my plans are more extensive.

    Hey there,

    I will put vehicle mode pics once the decals are properly finished.

    Here is a question for everyone..... I am also working on a new custom of Classics Jazz and am making the graphics as I write this..... My question is this. These graphics are not going to be a literal interpretation of G1, but slightly different like I have done with this. I thought a good sponsorship logo to put on the spoiler would be for "Zatarain's" ...... hence "Jazz it up with Zatarain's. People that know me well know I like to crack puns, and this just seemed an appropriate one to use for Jazz.......

    Let me know any thoughts. =)

    - Gregg

    People can say what they will about the movie mold for Jazz, but I thought one of the most brilliant things Hasbro did with the mold is when they used the movie mold and colored it in a "G1" deco. The brilliance comes when they inserted the word "JAZZ" in the space where "MARTINI" usually is found.
