    This project was a PAIN! he started as a red Ranger that converted into a space ship but I cave him a complete overhaul. The head is from a Cheetor with sculpt applied for the visor and the turn device. I removed the Rangers head and replaced the peg with a ball joint for full range movement. Next came the arms. I removed the arms then merged them with an Armada Starscreams fore arms (don't feel bad he was a scrapper when i got him, hes in a better place). Gettin the arms to works alone took about 2-3 hrs (I think 3 eps of McGuyver passed by) Gave him a fresh coat of paint and Top spin was born. Thus we have both jumpstarters!

    I know this sounds weird, but as a kid the Jumpstarters were among my most favorite Transformers. Great job!

    Mine as well, I just hated the limited articulation of them.

    Thanks! I like taking the more obscure characters and breathing new life into them! j.a.f.o don't feel bad about like the Jumpstarters they rocked in bot mode and looked very well proportioned! As stated though a little waist and arm movement wasn't enough but they were still fun as a kid!

    I'm glad someone else remembers these guys. I was always partial to them because of their solid 'bot modes. Excellent updates on Shins part. Keep it buddy! Still waiting for Movie style Cobra H.I.S.S.!
