    Hey guys!
    I finished another one in the last few days! I think this is some sort of record for me, as I usually have about 3 going on at a timeand never get to actually fininsh any! lol:D 

    I took a shot a Jazz this time. I tried the chest mod, I liked how it bulked him up abit. The stickers are from Repolables. I used the regular G1 Jazz set but I think if I were going to do it again I would use the BT version and cut them down to fit.
    Anyway on to the pics, hope you like, C&C's welcome of course! :D 

    **I forgot to mention that I got the head for a fellow customizer named Wheeljack over on Sector7.com. It is a a recast of the Shattered Glass exclusive.**

    It's a reproed Botcon Jazz head. I'm gonna be using that style of head for my next Jazz or Ricochet/Stepper I do

    Looks pretty good. I would have left the collar black so it doesn't chip or look kinda like a turtle neck sweater :D

    There is a small clearance issue. To transform it I have to turn his head sideways and the head is just a little bit too long. If you were to shave a hair off the bottom, it would probably work perfectly.

    It's so awesome I want to try it myself. The problem is that I just can't bring myself to decapitate a Botcon exclusive and my living situation means I can't cast any molds. :cry 

    ...

    I wonder if I could request a mold as well.

    I toyed with leg mod, but was a little beyond what I wanted to do and I couldn't find any tutorials on "how to", so I went with regular legs.

    Well I guess its good that I gave Wheeljack credit for the head recast!:D  lol

    I just sent mine(botcon Jazz head) to Darkov, our resident mold guy. Check his thread in a few weeks and he'll have some. I requested them to be cast in black and some white ones for me, not sure how he'll sell them though.

    The head fits well in both modes. I would say you'd be well off if you trimmed a bit under the bumper to give the hood part that flips out more room to come out.
