    He needed some detail so I hit him hard with a magic brush and he grew paint.

    But seriously, he's not a bad toy but the stock paint job left a bit to be desired and I thought correcting this would really make him shine. I'm happy with the results. Also, none of the additional paint is apparent in alt mode so he's not any more weird and distracting than he already is.

    Sorry for potato, I didn't feel like using the light box.

    Epic!
    I am totally doing this to mine :) 
    BTW: On mine, I cut into the back flaps behind his back legs to give him more leg motion backwards...the effects on his alt-modes are negligible.

    Nice job. What is Stripes meant to be? A tiger? I always though this toy face looked like a Dragon.

    Is it just me?

    I thought about doing that myself but really, without any outward motion on his hips the visual effect would be minimal. I'd have to replace the pins that hold his legs on with ball joints.

    I think my biggest problem with him now is the location of his "wings" I wish the were mounted on his shoulders instead of his hips.

    I believe he's meant to be a tiger but his head does throw that off a bit.

    Wow! You really made him look worlds better. If he looked even close to that out of the package I'd actually buy him.

    Stripes -TFWiki
    I believe this was to be G1 Steeljaw but with NuRID Steeljaw Hasbro went with Stripes to avoid confusion between the two.

    Even the card art was photoshpped from FOC Steeljaw.

    Hope this .helps
