    Hello there! This is my first time on these forums, so hello to all!

    Today I'd like to share my custom ROTF Deluxe Sideways figure. I made him new hands (which are articulated, as they are made of bendy-wires and peices of hair comb bristles for the tips), swapped his feet with Barricade's (which IMO looks better than his old ones), and gave him a paintjob! (well the paintjob is more of the use of sharpee.. I admit I was lazy about it.. but i do like the results.

    (srry about the blurry pics.. i took them quickly)

    For transformation.. the claws on the hands have to be folded in, and unfortunately one of the feet has to be removed (it wont fit), however... there is enough space in the back in order to fit the removed foot (as shown in one of the images below)

    ... and at last, the Audi r8 form of Decepticon Sideways!

    i forgot to take pictures of him in robot mode next to other deluxe figures and such.. but he is actually about a half inch or so taller now that i gave him barricade's feet.. making him a little closer to voyager figs in height... sorta lol. I'll try and upload more pics later, but please let me know what you guys think!

    That is a really sweet version of this guy! Aside from the sharpie stuff, I think it's great! Think maybe you would try to re-do the black at all? But really, it looks so good that that can easily be overlooked! Welcome to the boards!

    Hey, those are the best alternative Sideways feet I've seen until now. Good job.

    Very cool! Do you have to take Barricade's feet off for transformation?

    Very original mods. I think the look of the hands and the feet fit perfectly with Sideways. Great job!

    Finally someone that does the alt mode all the way accurate. Only thing left, make the windows a tinted black to match the movie version.
