    Here's JetFire w Ace, using a Vintage Matchbox Robotech VF-1 Fighter as a base, cut it up, added extra joints and made it Fully Tranformable from Mech Mode, to Gerwalk Mode and to Fighter Jet Mode[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    You did a great job here. Even if you had the lower legs on backwards in the first 2 pics:ev: :thumb

    LOL, you caught that on the photo, yes when I changed it to Fighter Mode, I noticed I had assembled it backwards, so I had to disassemble the legs and switched them, the photo for the Mech Mode and Gerwalk Mode was taken before the switch was made, the Fighter Jet Mode was taken after the correction, Good Eye TF Hunter D

    Did that toy actually have all the parts to transform minus the joints?

    No, they're molded together. In order to recreate the parts, you have to cut the pieces apart and add your own joints. Took me long enough time to find the right parts.

    No it didn't, I had to get the hands for it, which actually rotates and bend as well as slide into the forearms in jet mode, the forearms needed an additional panel to cover the opening and added a slot to accomodate the hand slide assembly, also had to custom build a double hinge slide to attach the front torso with the back torso (totally different from the original design) which also splits sideways to allow the head to rotate out, the whole jet had to be seperated and cut at certain areas to allow it to bend, move, rotate etc...

    Thanks Vinjax01

    Here's the Gun Pod for this Jetfire, it has been modified as a launcher and now can fire projectiles (Warning: Do Not Aim at Face or Eyes)
