    After RandomFerret gave me a nice slap in the face by saying something along the lines of, "That doesn't look that hard. Everyone knows the crane base," I went ahead and tried again to make this guy, and this time I succeeded, even though it looks like crap compared to Bahamut Prime's seekers...

    But anyways, here is an origami Jetfire... That transforms!

    My hands have been pretty unsteady lately because of some new medications the docs put me on, so considering that I'd say I did fairly well on this guy. Couldn't get him to stand up, though... And the instructions were actually for a Macross Valkyrie, but we all know about that ordeal. :p  I'll try a few more times to see if I can get him to at least look decent...

    That's probably the only transforming one you'll get, but I do have some vehicle-mode-only models I'm working on. Here's a WIP Brawl...

    I say WIP because he's supposed to be folded from a dollar bill (which gives a nice camo feel, too), and I don't have any crisp bills at the moment to use.

    Geewun Bumblebee coming up soon.

    Nice work man! Well, to me it looks like hard work, but I've never tried something like that before, so it's just my stupid opinion :wink:  And it even transforms... Great! - But what about some more color ?! :D 
    -> I'm really looking forward to see your Bumblebee finished, 'cause it's still my favourite TF and I can't wait to see him in origami style... so keep it up :thumb

    Maybe I'll try making this. Nice work on the attempt!

    If using larger paper, with a bit of careful detailing, like optics, paint details and Autobot sigils, it could make it show-accurate indeed!

    Dremare! Nice of you to stop by. :D  Thanks, my friend.

    (R)Bumblebee and Bahamut, thank you! Once I can get the model itself folded right I'll do some decorating. :D 

    Here's Bumblebee (with classics and LoC keychain for comparison) pre-deco...

    Looking at the instructions a bit more carefully, I think I could do some mods and have a nice Cliffjumper...

    EDIT: Oh, and his liscence plate says 8UM8L3. :p
