    Not actually a DOTM figure. First fully repaint one of my favourite G1 AuToBoT~! Autobot Tracks ~! whooohoo... I always knew ROTF Sideswipe design mould resemblance and meant to be Tracks all the time. So this is my very own version of the character. Lot of referring to members custom here as I fully admire as my inspiration and move me to start do this myself.

    I'm not using white colour instead i replace with silver. To give more metal feel for the movieverse theme

    Colour metallic blue, Sparkling Black, Undercoat Silver, Candy Red

    1. Using Anchor brand spray paint. don't have airbrush.
    2. Easier to stick if the colour is metallic, I think
    3. Rub with thinner on surface so the gloss can be remove so u have a rough surface to spray.
    4. Assembles all
    5. Spray layer by layer.
    6. Use anchor clear
    7. Assemble all again..

    Sounds easy but its not for a beginner like me. Enjoy~!

    looks very good. I would say that mold was made more for tracks than sideswipe.

    Why you name him DOTM and not ROTF, because he's a ROTF figure?

    But looks great, good colors!

    autobotx23 - thanks a lot. nice to hear from a veteran supporter.
    g60force - yes, if put side by side this mould with G1 Tracks or turbo tracks we can see a great similarity there. man. i wish this was real deal. man if they twist and make him a triplet as one of the bro of sides and streaker i will loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it to death.

    - used deleted - hehe ROTF is history. haha. well my attention is to bring attention to see my thread. that's all. sorry if confiuse you. but dotm sounds more updated to relate to any 'new' figure. - advertise?

    Still don't understand why this repaint was never made by Hasbro itself..it's perfect.

    Good job! :)

    digilaut - if they do, they just remind themselves how stupid not to make tracks at the 1st place.

    I think Sidearm Sideswipe is a better tracks... he even has a "flying car" mode xD, but I dunno about the bot mode wings, I don't have it (yet)
