    This guy was a hard project. I wanted to do something different than the ones we've seen before. I took the front end of a Porsche-like car, cut it up. Took off the front end of U. Prowl, then fused the 2 together. Took a lot of filling and sanding to make it look natural. I also wanted part of the front end to remain on his chest while in robot mode. The head is a cast from a botcon TFCC Jazz. His hands are articulated. I also reworked the spoiler and gave him fat rubber tires that stick out a bit, which give him a more racing car look. finished off with some custom decals and some gloss on the alt mode parts. Painted with HOK:KK and testor's model master enamels.

    very nice but i do agree black would have looked better the gray makes the head look to high off the shoulder,s but other than that minor tidbit your jazz is pretty sweet looking.

    That's pretty sweet. I wish we would have got a deluxe jazz from Classics/Universe and not just that Legends jazz.

    front bumper still looks a bit unrefined and part above headlights look too round. Like what you did with the wheels, spoilers and legs.

    Yea, I would've carved lines above where the headlights are located. That's really my only issue with this project, but I can imagine the whole process (as you said in the first post) being a major pain in the ass. And I have to give you credit for making it more distinguishable from the Prowl mold.

    Very nice in trying to do something different than others. Articulated hands yay! And Martini Racing! The head base that pops out is such a gripe in Prowl's mold, not much you can do about it, but man I hate it. Other than missing a red bumper :p , sick job F-R!!!!!

    I'd prefer a different gun and the "PORSCHE" removed from the labels, but that's it. I'd love to have a Universe Jazz like this. I think this is one of your best :thumb

    Nice. Yeah I got to agree the head collar thing feels awkward, but everything screams Jazz. So awesome work, dude.
