    Hey gang, here's some progress on my Tracks figure.

    Added LEDs to the eyes, tail lights, and head lights.

    Other than the electronics he'll be a straight up repaint. I'll be trying to do the flaming phoenix w/ Autobot symbol in it like the original.

    Here are some pics:

    Holy crap, was starting to think you'd evaporated or something. Good to see you post again. Did you ever post anything on that Legends class figure that you shot me a message about?

    Looking great, but where did you get a Tracks so soon?
    Do you accept commissions for the LED's too?

    Great work so far BH. Funny I was just showing another board member my collection and I pointed out the legends figures you articulated for me. It was kind of cool because he brought over a Gen. Jazz for me as a trade and I was showing off the G1 Legends Jazz you customized for me :D

    always speechless about your LEDs!
    Are they working on a single switch or they have their own switches?

    ^^This I must know. I tried a single source LED setup and it didn't work out super great. if so, any pointers? And it's great to see some work from j00 again. (Or did I miss something)?

    @ Rhinox555, fallenkia, KooF, plowking, Dormamu, brr-icy :

    Thanks guys! Feels good to be back. Hopefully I can be more of a presence in 2011!:thumbs2: 

    @ snakejake, ACofCA, jcartwork,bellpeppers, [Wing_Saber-X], autobotx23, autobotchico :

    Thanks! Tracks is a great fig, needed some flashy LEDs. He would want it that way!:thumbs2: 


    Hah! I loved that little Jazz, so fun to make. Your paint finished it up nicely, I need to make another for myself!:D 


    Thanks for asking! There are two discreet circuits. The eyes and tail lights run off one switch/battery pack under the canopy, and the head lights run off a switch and battery pack in the right lower leg. The driver's side headlight connects to the circuit via a micro connector in car mode to power the light. I'll try and get better pics of all this later and focus on the particulars.:thumbs2: 

    Thanks! I think I was the lucky first to find Tracks and jazz at retail, they should be pretty abundant by now.

    I do commissions, but I am NOT accepting any at this time. I have 5 major commissions I owe out and all are behind schedule. It would not be fair to them (or you) to take on more at this time! Thanks for asking! Koof, Fallenkia, or Zildjain may be able to help. All are great with LEDs as well.:thumbs2:
