    SG SideSwipe
    Based on the Alt Prowl and KO Prowl Parts with the head off an Alt SideSwipe; I used Krylon Bay Breeze Blue, and Testor’s Turquoise. I wanted to give the Decepticons very clean looking paint jobs and the Autobots dirty, beat up looks, so this is no different. I took some liberties with the colors versus the botcon colors, but the spirit is the same. And since this is SideSwipe, I modded the doors so they hang down to the sides.

    Great job! One question though, why does he have a SG Autobot emblem and then a red Decepticon symbol below it and on the shoulders?

    One other thing, you might what to change the licence plate since it looks like his name is Sideswap....maybe go with SIDESWPE or something.

    Because it's based on a toy that was based on the Armada Rampage/Wheeljack mold, which presented a character that had defected from the 'Bots the 'Cons and had that very distinctive (And super cool, the ONLY super cool thing about that mold...) Scarred Autobot, and Mini Decepticon symbol combo molded onto the toy.

    "Side Swap" is clearly intentional, and a GENIUS pun

    I am SO loving this one!

    The SG figures you've done look really good.

    There is something about this one that bugs me, but its minor. Your con symbol looks like you cut it apart, and then separated the two halves to create the scar effect. I think the scar is cool, but the way you did it makes the top half not in line with the rest of the sticker, it might be better to remove more frrom the topy half and then re-apply it so that it lines up correctly. Its a minor thing, but it just stands out to me especially over the right eye.

    About the Side Swap thing, I am so facepalming myself right now. In my defense I've had a LONG day. lol

    It really is brilliant, my mistake. lol

    As for the insignias, I recognized the scarred Autobot symbol from the Wheeljack figure (for some reason I thought that was either a RID or Universe Wheeljack but I never collected any of those lines so I don't know) and kinda knew that character's back story, but I didn't know he had mini Decepticon symbols like that.

    I guess it just didn't make sense to me since I thought it was a Shattered Glass Sideswipe and not Wheeljack or whatever. Anyways thanks for clearing it up. =)

    And still an awesome custom.

    Great custom, but the overall proportions of the figure remind me why Prowl is one of the VERY few Alternators I didn't get.

    ...Because Canada is obviously the Mirror Universe United States :D 

    An Awesome line of kitbashes you've done here. I'm not usually an Alt fan, but you've really managed to bring the media to me with these :)  Very nice.
