Wow, that's killer. I have an extra Classics Jetfire that will go under the knife for this
Though on a small side note... if you could resize your pics a bit, my browser won't freeze every time I try to open more than one at a time.
That is so great man, reminds me of Skyfire. Brilliant idea!
thnx, your welcome
goodluck man... are you planning doing some paint apps to even more G1 it?
I'm so sorry but that's a negative, since these pics are already changed in quality ranging from 6-8mb to 1.5-2mb specifically to allow the maximum on these board for future reference and also for me since I make many many pics, it already takes up a lot of time and what you asking is not that hard, but time-consuming since I'm not gonna use anything else but Photoshop CS4 (I have to ask to open pics one by one then, again sorry!)
Thank you, yeah after watching the first 2DVD's Skyfire is in there alot
Really like this custom, it's so easy and makes so much sense. Definitely going to re-buy this mold now.
This seems like it should be entirely possible. At most, you'd just have to install longer pegs in the thrusters right? Would it not fold up right in robot mode?
Yeah, I'm with ZMOG on this one. I used to have 17 inch pictures too, but after freezing my own browser trying to look at them I stopped doing it. Fact is, you're already opening the pictures in PS to crop them and correct the lighting, it wouldn't take 5 minutes for you to resize all your images to 7 inches (I know because I do it every time I post a picture). The whole reason you post a thread is for your fellow customizers, so why not make it easier for more of us to appreciate your work instead of giving up after only looking at one of your pics? Your pictures are awesome quality, but being able to see every speck of dirt under your fingernails doesn't really compensate for the hassle of waiting for the pictures to load. Probably my browser just sucks, but you're the only customizer I follow that I have this problem with.
Here's my two cents
G60Force, I really like this sort of simple mod to a figure that can really make a big difference. Just unscrewing the boosters really improved one of my old customs, it let my Starsaber have a much more G1 looking super jet mode. I had the booster apart to paint it, but I did not realize the pegs would fit in his hands. Great idea. I also like the more "Skyfire" like jet mode, but I did not want to widen the leg holes. So I fiddled aroung quite a bit and found you can swap the boosters left and right, and stick them in the hand holes. This looks a little better to me, the front of the boosters make a smoother curve that looks more like the cartoon, and the side does not have the targeting sensor sticking out. And there are no permanent changes to anything so I can switch between Jetfire and Skyfire whenever I want.
Jetfire as starsaber why has no one ever thought of that!?
I did post My custom Starsaber here a few years ago.
O MAN... LOVE IT!!!
def gonna do this w/ me extra jetfire....surpurb job....thanx for share n
Just a simple reconfiguration, yet far superior to most of the other Skyfire customs! AND it doesn't gimp the flip out guns!
I demand you take a picture of this with an additional unmodded Booster Pack on top!
thank you so much for all the positive comments
Not sure why... of course I could, but it's self explanatory, since then it will look like the default Classics Jetfire figure Or did you mean something else?
The way you modded it allows the boosters to be attached right under the back panel of the jet where the slots are. So you can attach both the modded Boosters along with an unmodded pack on top at the same time for MAXIMUM FIREPOWER!!!!
hahahh LOL I might do that
As promised (but I think it looks like crap, but firepower plenty )
Nice idea! Isn't it fun just messing with TF figures until you figure out something that can be improved with just a little work?
I did this in about 5 minutes with my extra Jetfire, and it looks great! Thanks for the tutorial
Yeah loving it more every single day
Great!! Glad to be part of it in some way or the other
updated some cool screendumps from my new G1 14DVD Collectors items
