    The first time I layed eyes on movie deluxe Jazz I was bummed. I mostly didn't like his face and secondly his hands, I feel like they leave something to be desired. I love his IN MOVIE look but not the toy. When I saw the Robot Heroes line had a movie version of Jazz coming out I hoped it would fit, which was a good guess cuz the deluxe Jazz head is pretty small as it is. I bought the Robot Heroes Jazz last week and I finally finished this very simple kitbash, so check it but don't disrespect it

    Crits welcome and I know I'm not so good at photos

    Hmmm......not bad, not bad. It's not something I would do, but, not bad. PM'ed you out of curiosity about something.

    Yeah light piping is cool but I couldn't hang with the underbite and the ears pointing forward. Looked too much like a warthog to me

    This head looks too small. I like the stock head better. Lightpiping FTW.

    Cool, I think it looks nice! I'm with you, I like Jazz's face in the movie but not on the deluxe toy. This isn't perfect, but it looks better than it did before! And hey, the little hand looks quite cool down there, too.

    It's a touch on the small side but not by much.

    Nice idea! :)

    thanks for all the crits, negative and positive. for those of you who think the head is too small, it's not really much smaller than the original. and the hand may be small but it's better than the nubbins this guy came with, plus i had an extra headless jazz so i figured i'd cut his arm off too :) 

    if anyone wants to do this it's pretty simple... buy robot heroes movie jazz vs frenzy 2 pack. pop jazz's right arm off and his head. for the head you cut off the little connector and then drill a hole in the head slightly smaller than deluxe jazz's ball joint. this way the head fits on snug. next cut the arm off at the elbow and it should fit in the deluxe jazz's forarm area. just tuck the old hand away and put the new one in
