    Here's my take on Alternators Bumblebee and Cliffjumper.

    I used a Smokescreen head for BB and Sideswipes arms. Only thing I added was some yellow paint. I'm keeping the blcak stripes on his vehicle mode ala movie BB plus I just bought KISS Sunstreaker so they'll lokk different enough for me

    I used KISS Alert for CJ's head and Sunstreakers arms so he'd look different when compared to Sideswipe. I also added black to his legs and top of his feet to further separate his look from old Sideswipe

    I feel that because these guys colors fit and their chests remind me of their G1 look they pass as pretty good versions of these guys for me. I'm thinking about adding something to CJ so his car mode is different than SSwipe

    sweet results. I like how they resemble each other, but not the same.

    I them both.

    I'm wondering if turning the lower legs around might make them look a little more like their G1 namesakes.

    Nice work.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I really only did these 2 cuz it was quick and easy. I just like building my collection and as most people know I'm down for the simple jobs that satisfy my needs

    The Viper mold looks really good for these two.

    Nice job on both of them! Your treatments on both are really nice and you did well to make them similar but different :thumb 

    Do you still have Sideswipe and Sunstreaker in your collection? I think my concern is how you would make these guys different than those two. I'm not sure about the Viper for the alt modes either, but BB was just a Camaro this summer so that's not too huge of a deal for me.

    Also, would I be correct in assuming that you scrapped your BTA-Alert to make a Prowl? If so, then what are you using your Prowl mold for?

    Anyways, nice work and I'm glad you can build your collection up :)

    I really dont dig these. It might be their chins, or the big fat chests, but they just dont work for me. Could be that I just cant picture a good BB/CF alternator.

    Not to say they aren't cool looking, just not really working for me.The molds work better on bigger and bulkier Autobots that arent named "Optimus Prime".

    Yes I have Sideswipe with the chest mod done to him but I'm still trying to figure out how to make the car modes different, maybe I'll add a spoiler to Sides. I'm pretty sure Cliffjumper was some sort of Porshe in G1 so a viper works for me. I do have another misb sunstreaker so maybe I'll take his back end off, paint it red and put it on my CJ so he's a hard top

    I have a BTA Sunstreaker on the way here so yes I have one of those in my collection as well. From what I hear the yellow is different than the Alt version and the bot modes are clearly different from the pics I've seen. Plus he has no black stripes

    Not too sure on Alt Prowl yet but I think I'm gonna make him into Red Alert once I get some Reprolabels and a head from Sculpt-Bot. I did just get the KO Japanese Police prowl too but I have no idea what to do with him
