Decepticon Blackjack by Jin-Saotome Decepticon Blackjack by Jin-Saotome
Here's Blackjack, a Decepticon that's really ahead of his time. Or is that behind the times? Blackjack's alt mode is based on one of those old mobster cars, the original figure was an Autobot Hubcap. I changed his hands so they could hold weapons, removed the lower pipes, outfitted him with a new head from a Microman Jet-Mogler, and added bullet holes all over the left side of the car. He was given a grayscale type paint job as a nod to the era and now looks like he belongs in a classic black and white crime movie!

How'd you do the bulletholes without drilling straight through the plastic? It's not exactly thick stuff, as I recall.

Very, very, very carefully. I have a Dremel Stylus and I used the lowest RPM setting with my drillbit

how did you get his head off? I'm attempting a head swap and just realized he has a thick pin, not a screw, holding it on

If it's a pin you have to heat it with a ColdHeat soldering tool in order to get the plastic flexible around the pin and remove it

I wish the toy had the swiveling bumper, he looks so much sleeker that way.

this is very close to what I had in mind for Hubcap's upcoming repaint, but I like the addition of the gun - what hands did you use so he could hold it?
