I won't lie, I was inspired by Onesock's bash. I was surprised at how well the Rodimus mold works as Sideswipe. It kinda makes me sad that they chose to make this mold into Hot Rod instead. My apologies for the bad pic. To differentiate this figure from Rodimus I hacked off the spoiler and engine, and took off the flames. I sanded down the 'horns' on his head. I covered the engine hole with scrap plastic but the color was tough to match. The white paint didn't really like the plastic too much, even after washing. I wasn't sure what to do with the side pipes, so I painted them flat black. I topped the whole thing off with a G1 launcher. My batteries died before I got the alt mode but I'll try and get that pic up tomorrow. Comments & crits welcome.
