    This dude started just because I wanted to see how a Jazz head would look on Cordon’s body.
    I liked it. So I went to work. Decals are from eBay. Paints are Model Masters semi gloss black, Tamiya brass, Testors red, and Citadel nuln oil gloss.
    The spoiler / blade weapons are taken from a Snap Ship, modified of course, the handle can combine to form one weapon if desired. everything stores in alt mode as well.

    Basically, he’s an alternate timeline Jazz, named him Meister after a recommendation from driftgravy613 on Instagram.

    Anywho, enough babble, on with the custom.

    I really like the use of the Jazz head here. Seeing Cordon in robot mode always makes me see "white Sunstreaker", but the new head makes a great difference!

    That’s really sweet. Jazz’s head gives it a lot more rough and tumble feel.

    He looks great :thumb 
    Maybe go a little lighter on the black wash :tongue: 
    Reminds me a lot of Mach Alert in alt mode and a very mean Autotrooper in robot mode.

    Not gonna lie, he was clean at first, that was the original intent. All I had done was add some black detail, and painted the wheels. But it just looked to plain to me. For some reason, I like that dirty grimy look. Not on everything, but I just felt like this guy needed it.

    And, not gonna lie again, I was thinking the same thing about alt mode (Mach Alert/Prowl), and bot modes (Autotrooper).

    If I can find another Cordon for cheap, I might just do the Autotrooper idea.

    Appreciate the kind words and feedback!

    I like that look, too (just look at my Repugnus), but it just looks a bit botchy on him here. If you add too much (black) wash at once it gathers in drops or even puddles and when it dries it still looks like huge dried drops and puddles on the figure and not like in scale and realistic grime (stains).
    It still looks great - no argument there. But it takes away a bit of the illusion of realism.

    Or SIEGE/Netflix/Kingdom Red Alert? Might not look as good with that mold but the overall shape and base colors fit.

    You are very welcome ;) 

    Btw I just noticed that only his left thigh is half black o_O ​

    Yikes, this alternate timeline is no joke. Great work on the damage and head swap. Also that weapon is really cool.

    I like it.

    Going to need a few of those sparkless drones for him to cut through though.

    “hurt” by Johnny Cash playing in the background as this version of Jazz drives by.

    this custom looks AMAZING.

    Oh jeez, that's savage and badass! And the spoiler turning into curved knives and a duel sword is genius! Tops the whole thing off perfectly. Great job!
