Just another jet transformable to mecha. Moving along now.
About this creation

You guys must be wondering why I name  my MOC this way this time around
(no its not related to Xmas) . Ah well I reckon that what you will be seeing
below will need no introduction to Transformers fans, I guess i shall skip the
formality of implicitly qouting his name.


And oh yes... a lil favor: Do play along with me. If you were to post any
comments , don't mention the 'bot which Im homaging shall we? great!


 Well after showing my friend the photos of this MOC for the first time
, he mentioned that this RWB I meant to homage  be actually looked like another RWB  character from the same series.. well the jet mode that is. Perhaps it's the
general shape of the jet mode which sways towards the other RWB he implied.
Still not confused? Great!


This MOC has half the work done for me the very first hour I started to build
it. I just copy the leg design from my previous MOC,
Misfire . But as I go long
building the remaining half , I noticed that the leg design doesn't quite cut
it. So it's rebuilt again to resemble a more realistic jet back, the tailfins
positioning and all.


Trivia:



  • If you compare Misfire's feet with this one, the front feet-backheels
    design were swapped coz this decision seems to offer better stability. Hence
    I finally managed to snap even more photos of him in unique "outrageous"
    poses.

  • Wrestled with the idea of making a bigger "null ray" rifles (like the G1
    toy) but it looked ridiculous in both modes . Sometimes simplicity is bliss
    , so I finally settled  and make them 1 brick thick and using just 5 parts each side I
    think.

  • I decapitated Misfire's head and modified it to be used for this MOC.
    hehhe.

  • Major time-waster? It's the freakin landing gears which took me 3 days
    to get right.


Complete set of photos can be found in my blog entry below:

Yes, the nosecone was much worse before (protuding
upwards) , but I guess an extra hinge wouldn't hurt
One of my favorite photos of him: The "here's firing
at you, kid!"
I call this piece "Schemer pledging (fake) allegiance
to his dear leader"
It's either "initiating a Gangnam style" or "Ready
for a soccer/football kickoff"

Merry Xmas everyone and Happy new year , too!

Great work, sir! ..and Starsream Soundwave Alan is one of the orignal legoformer builders long before the rest of us. His style is unique!

Hmmmm I wonder who this is ;) Absolutely fantastic work, reminds me of MortalSwordsman's Jetfire, I think because of the style of the build. Love the last few photos two, the poses are cool. You really captured the character! Great work, love it.

I know exactly who this is, don't turn your back on him as he will stab you in it ;). The G1 version of him is one of my all time favourites and this is a brilliant recreation. Not sure if you have seen it but I have built a similar former - not this guy but some of the solutions where similar and also very tricky - his head and landing gear especially. Great build, and poses as always from you. Merry Christmas.

So awesome, great design. Will we be seeing "Blue and Red" and "Purple and Black", because if so, I'd be so pumped!
