    I know this has been done and is a simple head/fist swap but it looks cool so I thought I would post pics of the set.

    Are those Henkeis and Universes Sunstreaker and Sideswipe? The head swap looks nice.

    The only one that is Henkei is Sunstreaker, the rest are all Universe. For the red Sunstreaker I just turned the "ear" pieces around so you can't see the yellow paint from the front. I only wanted a Tigertracks but when I got all the parts swapped the red Sunstreaker looked pretty good too.

    That Hot Rod is Classics? Pretty damn good job on him.

    EDIT: Oh, you just meant the lambo bros. were Universe. Derp. :p

    This mod never gets old, it just works too well.:thumbs2: 

    But, you should swap the white, and grey parts too.

    I did this myself. I just need to paint over Sunstreaker's face too. I think the body parts swap makes all the difference in the world to this custom.

    Nice work, regardless! :thumb

    I got an extra Sunstreaker and Sideswipe to do this as well.

    The only part I didn't swap was the hinge on the bonnet. I couldn't figure out how to get the rivet on it out, and then when I read about heating it up I just thought I'd forget about it.

    Its worth swapping the white and grey bits over though, as the white with the yellow looks a lot better, and more like Tigertracks.

    I will have to give the white parts on Tigertracks try.
