    Here is my "Jumbo" Jetfire. I finally repainted my Toys R Us exclusive Jetstorm. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what to repaint him as. Should I do a more realistic paint job? Should I repaint him as an earth mode Movie Soundwave? Paint him military green and add him to my Green Team? But after taking other figures apart and doing other customs like my Classics Soundwave and Shockwave, I decided to swap heads with Universe Treadbolt and turn this guy into Jetfire, JUMBO JETfire. Get it? I painted him silver, white, and reds. I kept a lot of the silver. I liked how he looked that way...

    Get ready to see lots of red in the next couple of customs.... ;)

    nice paint, good concept and style.

    I always wanted to do this in G1 colors, but then classics jetfire came out and I was satisfied.

    VERY NICE! White is ALWAYS such a pain, and that is one big figure, my hat's off to you buddy!

    I especially like the helmeted-look, and the squish-the-bug-shot ;)

    This looks great Solrac :)  Very smooth paintwork with all that white.

    Nicely done!! White is a pain to paint and you've pulled this one off very very nicely. Your skills just moved many notches up!

    This figure sucks to repaint!!!! I did the same thing with the head mod and turning him into Jetfire. That was about a year and a half ago.

    But yeah, your skills are looking good. I like this.

    There was a lot of rubbing with the legs. That was a paint. I remember seeing a custom. Maybe it was yours. I noticed that I can store the helmet on the back of the plane on top of the weapons. It kind of fits in there without any mods.

    Inverse Gerwalk maybe...

    Actually really looks like he wants to Multi-Force/Superlink Combine with somebody's super-pants mode!

    Somehow makes me think of King J-Der too, I REALLY need to dig him out and get him on display someplace...
