    well most of the snow in chicago has melted so instead of making a snowman, I opted for a snowbot. if you don't know the episode that I'm referring to, you're probably a better adjusted human being than I am. probably cooler too. If you do know, then you're probably still cooler than I am.....
    Anyway, a lot of takes on universe jazz out there and a lot of them are well made and extremely representative of the character. To continue with reshelling the arc crew, I decided to get cranking on mine.
    here it is so far.
    not snowman spike, snowbot!

    thanks for looking :) 

    P.S. The head I've used for this was a reject cast off of the last mold I made for this head. Several of you have contacted me about them and I had run out and then my mold went bad. thanks fellas

    Awesome likeness there; Scatman would be proud. So do you have plans for a Stepper recolor?

    When I saw your Prowl reshell I knew it would work, I'd wet myself for a Stepper. You're capturing the 'classic' this line offers.

    Inspiring!!

    thanks for the words guys. got busy again so I might be able to reply as often. :( 

    the 911 would look great. I'm gonna hold off on doing anymore self bashes for a while. wheeljack was my second reshell - http://www.sector70.com/gallery.aspx?tgt=wheeljack/wheeljack/big/ - I've been wanting to rework it a bit lately. :inquisiti 
    indeed it is. and thanks :)  I do need stop adding projects and start finishing some.
    thanks big hank. I definitely can't do what turboedguy does. he's more of a magician than a kitbasher. :) 
    Thanks fellas. stepper unfortunately isn't really high on my list just yet. I do have an extra model kit with that very intention though. :)

    thanks JazzEd. You know your jazz looks good! go get it back out.
    no, no, you da man
    thanks sq7 :) 
    welcome. the scale is 1/32. most of the time seems to work well with deluxe size figures.

    cheers guys
