    I don't really like that mold for Sideswipe, but Powerglide looks amazing!

    Powerglide is slick, though I would have left the turbines silver, but it's still very appealing.

    Powerglide was a Sky Shadow repaint. I trimed back the visor, cut his ears down, but he didnt come with silver turbines. Yeah, I like him though. Thanks. Should I clear coat him? Not many of his parts rub whne he transforms...

    I would suggest you paint the arms silver then.

    And I don't think you should clear coat it though.

    Nicely done, especially given that they are Cybertron versions of re-occuring names

    :D 


    if one is taking the multi-verse into account

    Nice job. Some closer and crisper shots would be nice.

    ^ It's a good mold, and the body style in robot mode works pretty well for a lot of G1 characters, so why shouldn't they?

    Those look great! I love non-obvious repaints, so I think the Crosswise mold is pretty neat as Sideswipe. Plus, it makes a certain amount of sense. The Countach was the tip-top supercar of its day, and the Veyron kinda fills that spot in modern times. It's hard to see from the pics what you did with his head, but it looks good from what I can see!

    As for Powerglide.... well, as is probably evident from my avatar, he's one of my favorite minibots, and I'm always very excited when he gets some fan love. I think your version looks excellent. The red is really eye-catching, and nicely-applied. And the Jetfire face actually works REALLY well for him, with that face shield. Nicely done!

    The Crosswise mold is by far my favorite deluxe car mold in the series. If I can figure out a head mod I will definitely do a Sunstreaker. Should I paint the headlights yellow?
