    I always loved the Beast Wars Jawbreaker figure. He seriously looks like the meanest and most deadly close quarters combat Maximal of them all.
    Unfortunately he had huge garden hand fork looking feet that looked ridiculous in both modes. I replaced them with modded Universe Cheetor feet and repainted him to spread around his basic color scheme more.

    Hopefully this brought out more of the coolness potential of Jawbreaker, making him more of a Premium version.

    JAWBREAKER
    The most aggressive of the Maximals, Jawbreaker never backs down from
    a fight. Prefers combat situations where odds are stacked against him.
    Most effective in close-combat battle, where his powerful jaws can be
    devastating. Utilizes magnetic field generator between his shoulders,
    drawing unfortunate Predacons into his spinning deltoid blade.
    Possesses a twisted sense of humor, laughs a lot - but generally
    laughs alone.

    Last 2 pics are a picture I did many years ago when Jawbreaker was a fairly new figure (to show how much I always liked the character) and a before pic.
    Yes, I know I don't draw well, hah... Or couldn't. I quit drawing loooong ago.

    Why hasn't anyone commented this Masterpiece?
    Sir, this is truly beautiful, in a strange, deranged killer good guy way, Kudos!
    and, as a Drawer myself, I tell you: you shouldn't be afraid to draw, you DO draw very well, you should draw what you customize more often! :D

    Wow, this guy was my first TF. Nice to see him repainted like this. I like how his hyena head doesn't look like a rabid beaver anymore. Have you tried making his jaw able to open and sort of close? It seems like they scrapped that gimmick and glued it tight on the final release.

    Jawbreaker is probably my favorite BW deluxe figure by far. Like you said, he looks the meanest of the lot. I think you did an excellent job on this fig.

    Wow..I..am..old.

    I bought Jawbreaker when myself and my wife of the time were nerding out over BW and I thought he would make a sweet troop-builder figure (though I only ever got 2 I think...plus his pretty U-repaint)

    :lol 

    Anyway, still love what you did here :)

    Haha that drawing has to be over 12 years old but thanks.

    Oh yeah I did file his teeth to kill tha beaver. I noticed the mouth thing too but just decided not to mess with it. Also I sharpened his front claws and filled in that ugly hole on the side of his head.

    If you really want me to, shoot a message. I'll do it for $40 shipped back since it isn't a full repaint.

    Hah, I'm old too. I used to watch BW with my wife in my early 20s.


    Thanks for the kind comments guys!

    What a great idea, first of all. Its execution is fantastic! Those legs look great on him. I must say, I love what you did with his color scheme. Adding more red/spreading out the original colors more really makes your version look better than the original :)
