    I finaly got around to making new Jazz hands from the original mock-up that I posted a while back.

    The original was made with Bamboo skewers :?, Super Sculpey, and super glue. This time I used aluminum tubes, and PC-11 epoxy(I still haven't ordered any Apoxy sculpt).

    That's not all I did to Jazz, as you can see I detailed the inside of the claws. I removed the car doors from robot mode and glued the seam in the center of his legs. The car doors just snap on, and stay on for alt mode W/O the screws! I also dry brushed his face/mouth area silver to be more movie accurate. I can post alt mode pics, but he doesn't look any different. I think up next I'm gonna repaint my '08 BB.

    I took a picture of Jazz with his weapon and showing removing the door s in 'bot mode gives a sh*t load more articulation and playability to Jazz.

    Not much new with his alt mode. I painted the door mirriors silver. I really took this to show everyone the hands when not in use. Are idle robot hands still the devil's playgound? :-?

    Nice, but I still think he deserves a correct amount of digits like the film.

    Look at his little molded claws Hasbro gave him, even they had 3 digits.

    I realize he has four finger, claw, digit, things... Anywho, Thank you for the kind words.

    You definitely got the right idea though!!! Like I said I first made these with Sculpey and bamboo, who knows your next idea may be infinitely better that mine.

    Glad I could help out. I just like that now I can pose him for the "What's crackin' bitchez?" scene. :rolleyes2
