    Ok. Revisited my Movie Jazz for a commission. Just to share. Hope you guys like it. My main aim was to mod it for a sleeker robot like appearance.

    Interesting use of colours there! How come you went for the yellow? Seems to stick out a bit to me. But very nice :)

    Great ! I like the subtle dirt on the metallic parts. What did you 'mod' exactly ? Because, indeed, the robot mode does give a more sleek impression.

    Bright yellow headlights stick a bit out like a sore thumb though.

    Lolz. Look at the sides of the legs and the feet. The door panels are no longer there. So is the annoying circular discs.

    Hey Sabrina,

    why don't you go the next step and start filling in the screwholes and seems? I'm sure your work would be 3 times as beautiful without all those eyesores.

    great job as usual. But it's getting a bit done.

    iDD

    You've made the robot mode look tons better. How would new hands look on this mold? Have you tried?

    Cool, a bit too dark and the yellow headlights look somewhat out of place, but the paintjob is beautiul as always.

    Wish I knew how soon you were finishing this off, I've done more work to the legs to make him more proportionate & still might adjust his thighs a bit more to smooth the gradation from rib-hip-leg...

    By the way, how did you take care of the weakness brought on by removing the door panels? ...or did you just glue the thighs together?

    Glued ? So, now the plating is back on permanently ? Pics ?

    Anyway, I had a look again at other Jazz repaints and yours does indeed look a lot more sleek then those others.

    What i meant was i glued the thighs together. As previously, the plates held the legs. The plates are still attached and detachable at will.

    Hate to sound stereotypical, but do you know of any nailpolish that might work to give Jazz's very 2d headlights some depth &/or shine?

    I agree that the yellow lights look out of place, at least in car mode. I really like the way it looks in bot mode though, which is how all mine are displayed.
