TF Prime Jazz...

Postby Taiki » Tue Jul 31, 2012 10:01 am

Hi... Kinda new here.
really wasn't sure if this would work... and even now, I'm STILL not sure if it works, but...
I kinda like Jazz quite a fair bit?... and it irritated me that he wasn't in TF Prime, even as a mold repaint?... so...
After some mold comparisons...
Door wings?... check.
Legs that resemble G1 and United Jazz somewhat?... check.
Car front chest?... check.
Sporty alt mode?... vaguely?... check.
...
and so I settled on FE Bumblebee. /facepalm
headswap with an extra Generations Jazz that I had around, with his gun as well, kept in it's retracted form so it's like a pistol. no storage room in alt mode sadly.
removed the clip bits from inside his chest to let the hood bits sit a bit lower and more compact...
and did some shaving down of the sharp pointy bits at his elbows and his knees to give it less of a Bee feel...
silver spray paint on, with markered on stripes... and some purposely markered on silver on the forearms and thighs so he doesn't look like a solid block of silver.
...
GODS I hope they come up with a sportier mold so I can redo this...
Thanx for bearing with the verbosity...

I'm not generally a huge fan of Jazz, but what you did with that mold is leaps and bounds better than what we got.

Very nice :)

I love the FE Bumblebee mold for BB, but this is amazing! Good choice all around, even if I am not a huge fan of Jazz.

Heh, thanx. XD
I realize the mold is more versatile than most give it credit for?... Given how it mimics some transformations in G1, you can get Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen outta him too, and possibly more besides...

Oh that is a thing of beauty! I'd buy that mold all over again if it was done as Jazz like this.

Heh, thanx. XD
It's a simple enough custom, if you can get your hands on FE BB and RTS/United Jazz...
but yeah... I'm hoping for an official Jazz on TF Prime at some point, or at least an official remold...

Being that he's my all time favorite character I can wholeheartedly agree.

I'm hoping that the TF Prime game spawns us a couple of toys... either new molds or repaints?...
I love the released concept sketches for Prowl and Barricade... hoping to see them as toys at some point...
