    I picked up the Wal*Mart rally deco'd Sidearm Sideswipe because the color scheme and decals looked awesome, but the actual figure overall is pretty flat. I decided to see if I could up-detail him without fully painting the car mode, and make him into my movie Bluestreak.

    I gave the car mode a gold pearl coat with an automotive wet-gloss finish. I then decided that I wanted Bluestreak to look like he had taken part in one of the covert-ops in the desert like in the beginning of the movie, so I gave him some sandy weathering.

    I gave the thigh armor the same finish as the car mode, and then detailed up as much as I could without affecting the car mode.

    Nice job! I love the pearlescent coat you gave him. I'd love to apply a similar treatment to other figures. What did you use and where can I buy some?
