    Jazz can't really say what happened for sure. One moment he and his fellow Autobots were trying to defend a Space Bridge on earth. The next moment there was an explosion, Autobots and Decepticons alike were flung onto the Space Bridge, which then activated. That was the last thing Jazz remembered before he woke up what seemed like a galaxy far, far away.

    When he awoke he was alone on an unfamiliar world. Never one to sweat the small stuff Jazz quickly integrated himself into his new surroundings. Realizing that his current alternate mode from Earth would leave him exposed he quickly found what appeared to be an old racing vehicle of some kind and odified his appearance.

    Jazz transformed and set out to find his companions, quickly turning the holonet receicer in his newly modified CK-6 Swoop alt mode to pick up some music by Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes............




    So this is my take on what I wish the Transformers/Star Wars Crossover line was really about. I'd love this line if it was Star Wars vehicles that turned into Transformers characters.

    I have an entire assortment planned out at this time and will start on my second "True" Crossover very shortly.

    Thanks for checking out my Star Wars Jazz.

    I REALLY like this! I think the MARTINI labels are a bit strange in this mode, but other than that I think this is VERY well done :thumb

    I've never been able to decide WHAT to do with that Freeco-Speeder (or whatever it is), and I would have never in a million years thought of Jazz, but man, you really sold me with your vision and your execution!

    Great job!

    I definitely agree with you there. The SW/TF line would've been a lot better this way. I can't even call what they currently have a proper crossover since there's nothing that really showcases the Transformers IP. To me, it's just Star Wars characters taking on robot and Star Wars vehicle forms. It doesn't have anything to do with Hasbro's core brand. I kind of feel the same way about the Marvel/TF line as well.

    Great Idea.
    Something like this, is more what I had envisioned for SWTF in the first place when I first heard of them.
    Sometimes the simplest ideas make a hell of an improvement.
    I applaud you sir..

    I'm thinking of Prime or Bumblebee as next in line, but Star Scream or Soundwave are both intriguing me right now. Thanks, glad you like him.

    I modded out some small stuff on the Freeco as I hate that molds landing gear and chest. Past that I don't think its a bad mold so far as the Star Wars Crossovers go.

    Thank you!

    :)  Thanks

    I actually debated putting those on for a while, but in the end I'm a G1 whore so I couldn't resist.:)  Thanks.

    Thanks very much. I was kinda stuck for a while as I really wanted Jazz to be a Star Wars land vehicle. When I saw the Freeco I immediatly figured it would work the best of all the Star Wars Crossover molds available.

    Yep thats how I feel in a nut shell as well. I'm a Star Wars fan as well as a Transformers fan but I can't say I've ever really gotten into the Crossovers myself. The only one I own just because I love the vehicle mold is the General Grievous Star Fighter(in addition to Jazz of course :)  )

    Thank you

    Thanks a bunch!

    Glad you liked him. All the customs there were really impressive.

    Thank you. I loved getting out to TFCon.

    :)  !!!!!!

    For sure, thanks.

    I wonder what Star Wars vehicle Overlord would choose.......:p  Thanks Chans', great meeting you at the show.

    This is one unique customer. I love the concept and the execution here.

    Looks dead on for a crossover/actual cybertronian alt mode!
