    Not much kitbashing done, the head was altered to be able to fit at the ball joint on jazz's body. Was interesting working on this project as i wondered how it would look in my style. This is a commissioned piece to a faithful client.

    Looks nice! Why did you go with gold instead of silver with the torso/chest section.

    Because i believed it would hint at the original concept for the Cybertronian Prime. I attached a pic from the War within appearance

    lol i guess if thats how you want to look at him haha
    Thnx! i did washes but even so i had to detail it again with black, it's ALOT of work.

    true, he DID have an appearance like Kup(g1) at some point, i guess this would be close to it.
    I think the idea my client had was to have the chest be more like the original concept. His chest isnt sticking out like animated/WFC/FOC primes. Basically sticking to the old concepts
    Thanks lol

    Thanks man i think there is alot of appeal and potential to the Jazz mold.

    This could make a perfect Orion Pax if you sanded down the ears a little! Are we going to get side by side pictures next to the original FOC Prime figure & Jazz?
