    Hey all...I'm just wondering...has anyone else thought about re-painting the animated Jetfire/Jetstorm twins into the Fastlane/Cloudraker clones? I picked up a cheap set of these guys and gave it a whirl...obviously I'm not done, but I was wondering what you all think???

    Great idea. Looking forward to seeing them complete. I know you're not done, but I think you should paint the clear plastic.

    Cover up the clear plastic eh? Interesting idea...I hadn't really considered that, but it might be what's missing...think it's ok to leave the heads different?

    Do you think you can modify the alt modes to reflect the jet/car combo of the original set of twins?

    Otherwise it looks pretty slick!

    ye i think it would be awesome if you could make one turn into a csr/ dragster somehow maybe use the one with the visor to look like a crash helmet while the other guys goggles make him look like a jet pilot

    I forget who did it, but I have seen someone do it. One got Classics Mirage parts for a race car look and the other got proper wings. Your paints already look awesome. Go for it!

    hey steelieboy, just a suggestion. I hesitate to paint clear plastic as well, but find that unless it goes with the new color scheme, it seems unfinished. In this case I think it will bring them together. I think paint chest white, arm flames white, leg flames red. It's your custom, I don't mean to tell you what to do!

    Naw man that's cool...ideas like that are why I post this stuff in here! I got these guys for like $15 at TJ Maxx, so if I don't like what I'm seeing, I can just go buy another set...no biggie.

    Excuse the rough digi...doing this on a laptop with gimp. Anyway, I think the uniform color scheme works well with the characters, while the different heads show that they are slightly different. Anyway, as I said before, great idea steelieboy.

    DUDE! That looks AWESOME!!! I'm totally gonna have to do that! On the digi, it looks like the chest piece retained some of its translucent properties, and I don't know if I will be able to do that with paints...you think it would be ok if it was just a solid color? The arms and legs look simply outstanding tho.

    Could you digi it with the arm flames as red? I think it might look better.

    that looks good. Might have to try that at some point, there's still plenty of these at my local TRU reduced.
