    well bud, the idea is there, and the "launcher" looks good, but the "missile" is a bit too much, too big, too......lopsided.

    As awesome as that is, the Missile is far too big.

    I agree that the shoulder missle is a great idea, I also agree that it needs to be scaled down by about 2/3. Dont be discouraged though.....your deffinately on the right track!!

    Looks like a drill more than a missile. Ideally, the radius of the warhead wouldn't be any larger than the launcher itself. However, as others have said, you're on the right track. I'd love to see Mk II.

    The launcher definitely works, but as the others have said, the missile doesn't fit the look, it seems more like a cone just slapped on. Why don't you see if you've got any spare missiles from other toys (TF or otherwise) and try adapting them to fit the gun?

    I think Hasbro was going for more of a cartoon accurate Jazz...nice concept, but a little too big. But don't be discouraged...

    I think the missiles from a KO G1 Devastor might be better in terms of size :) 

    Is it okay if you post a pic how you placed a connection on the shoulders ? Is it a clip ?

    there isnt a lot that fits on his shoulder but a random piece of lego was all i used. I literally glued it onto the gun and it was done. Thanks for the opinions everyone. Ill be sure to post pics of an updated one with a smaller missle and show how it fits and how well it fits this weekend when i have the time :)
