    I noticed you removed the doors from Jazz, but I had to grab my figure to notice. Which makes me wonder, is there anyway you could have the doors rotate back, instead of having to remove them completely? What'd you do with Barricade, though?

    The doors rest on two long pegs that hold the screws.

    Barricade, I painted his face black and silver and added orange to the smaller lights next to his ram.

    Frenzy also got silver added and blue eyes.

    I don't have Jazz so I have no clue. What did you do to him?

    Took the doors off his legs so they can bend more.

    I personally modified the legs on Barricade and corrected the hip. I hated the way he hunched over with the bent legs.

    I think the legs add character to what is otherwise a very generic robot shape.

    The only reason I bought him was I loved the vehicle mode. The only Movie figure I own.

    Barricade doesnt spot silver on his face in the movie but it actualy looks much better on him. kinda add ballance with the parts on his legs and other ones! I might do something similar myself:)  Thanks for sharing!

    Well it was either that or paint his whole face black, ;)  which I didn't want to do. I thought dark silver would work just as well.
    Thanks!

    I also dont understand why the paint his "mustache" thing yellow:S The only thing yellow on his face in the movie are his teeth not the half of his face!:S Ill sure fix that!:D 

    EDIT: Is your Barricade's head made of rubber? Mine does . just thought it was kinda weird for the transformer toy
