    For whatever reason, Jolt was redesigned for DOTM (figure at least) but wasn't in the movie. His redesign was no more drastic than most of the other Autobots in DOTM aside from the new dull light gray color with a mild blue tint.
    I wanted to make a good DOTM figure of the character with the colors and head he had in ROTF, so I resculpted about 50% of his head and repainted the figure completely. Hated that weird owl with a crown head he had before...

    Screw mech-tech and electrified cords. :)

    I mostly used paused screens of ROTF as reference as I did this but I attached 2 of my other reference pics too.

    Eh.

    They'd have probably fucked it up anyways & just made Jolt worse with a random blue chest or something.

    You made a really cool mode even more awesome. I really wished this is how we got it.

    That head work is really killer. Remove that "Energon Blue" paint, though!

    Thanks guys! I'm starting to hate my big clear pics on white backgrounds. Not very flattering on my monitor here at least since you can see the smallest flaws with a deluxe toy blown up 3 times bigger in bright lighting...

    I put this fella on the Ebay last night and he sold REAL fast. :)
