    Hello again. I've seen only two G1 Transformers that have been gold-plated and wonder what others have been gold-plated or chromed?
    The two I've seen on ebay is Jazz, and then a very expensive Optimus Prime.
    Any others? Does anybody have one to post a pic of?
    I wonder how much of the toy is plated if it's all done up, or just body-parts done up.
    From my model car building day's, I know of an outfit in USA that specializes in chrome-plating and gold-plating plastic model kit's and I'm sure they would do the same for TF's.

    I think if I find a 100% complete Jetfire that has yellowed out, I'd take him apart and have his body work gold-plated. That would be a nice display piece! :D

    That is a neat idea, but even if this Jetfire is yellower than Bumblebee in a banana patch, it will still cost you a pretty penny to get one that is 100% complete, unless you get super lucky and find one at a garage sale.

    He doesn't have to be 100% complete, but complete enough to display well. In other words, don't want a naked Jetfire.
    I don't think anybody has answered my question.
    I have seen a NIB special gold-plated G1 Jazz and wanted to know what other Transformers were gold-plated or chromed? The Optimus Prime I saw I believe was a custom job and not a special job.

    if you like the idea and not hung up on it being the official lucky draw there is a member named bombatron who is very (for what it is) reasonable.

    G1 Luckydraw prime was never all chrome. I am sure he is talking about the custom chrome one killa b killed has on ebay for 2k, this one is 100% chromed.

    Yeah, there's a difference between 'legit' and 'fake' gold and chrome job's. The fake one is where a guy just sprays gold paint on a figure and call's it a lucky draw. The legit one is electroplating where gold paint is actually bonded to the metal. Takes a lot of $$$$ to get a legit lucky draw.
    I wish you luck in your enterprises to acquire a G1 gold plated Jetfire.

    Check out Lucky Draw Transformers At LuckyDrawTransformers.com for more on the Lucky Draw prize toys.

    The Jazz you mentioned wasn't actually a Lucky Draw, he was an E-Hobby exclusive toy released back in 2004 or so, based off of the G1 episode "The Golden Lagoon".
