    Hello! Thanks for dropping by!

    Im a fan of Transformers Animated, but the design of Safeguard(jetfire/jetstorm combined) just doesn't really impress me. I think the twins were one of the weaker designs in the line. and since my twins lost both their left arm, they're pretty much useless. So, i decided to customize them, and the idea that came into my head is non other than G1 Jetfire/Skyfire!

    The Parts i used are from the jet twins, and added some bits and pieces from my "parts box". I used jetstorm's head and made it into a helmet by adding antennas and sculpting a facemask. So here he is, and i can say i'm very pleased with the result! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

    EDIT: more pics on post #11 --> http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...-animated-g1-style-jetfire-2.html#post5204455

    EDIT again: Hi Guys! added transformation sequence animation. it's a bit low on quality but that's pretty much how jetfire/skyfire transforms. wings rotate down. backpack rotates up from the back on to the back of the head. cockpit lifts up from chest and rotates 180deg then rotates down to attach to the backpack thus hiding the head inside. legs are standard "twins" transformation. arms transforms into jet thrusters. that's pretty much it. i'll try to improve the animation if i can. Thanks! =)

    This is awesome!
    I like the fact that Jetfire still has his goofy grin, even though his G1 self is such a stoic character.

    Nice work :)

    Very very impressive! I agree with you on them being pretty weak molds. This however redeems them in every way!

    I wish that was the design they could've done with Jetfire and Jetstorm.

    Great job by the way.

    That looks great - although I actually liked the original molds, the characters never felt right as a 'Jetfire', I think different names might have suited them a bit better.

    A Dreadwind/Darkwing version of the twins would be great to see as well...

    Nice job...really great work. I had a thought to do a simple repaint in G1 Jetfire colors, but you really took it to the next level. Funny that I just bought the twins to do this (like yesterday)!
