    Began the creation of Dragstrip. Still early stages but here is a list of what has been done so far:

    Removed arm cannon
    Removed original hands, replaced with better ones.
    Glued handcovers to fenders to allow better visibility on the hands.
    Converted arm cannon into backpack (testing phase)

    Will be updating this as progress is made.

    Update: the peg for the backpack keeps breaking off with epoxy, nightmare, so that's slowed progress down a little but I am dedicated to making this work!

    i dont blame you, the reason i thought of Jazs was because of the Bot Shots Dragstrip, but when i was thinking more movieverse i thought of DOTM Soundwave, but this looks far more better!

    i do question, will you keep Stinger's paint style or come up with something else, and what colors will you use? i kinda like the yellow and purple but his g1/foc yellow ane red are a neat mix too. everything about this is awesome!

    The layout for the paint in alt mode is still a WIP but I know how robot mode will look. The colour scheme will be yellow, purple, red, black and silver
