So I got the DOTM Sideswipe. Didn't really wanted it but thought it would be a fun one to paint. I was right. The figure itself is like on oversized legends figure. All of the pics I've seen made this figure look like crap. Other than the cheap paints (or lack of), this is a pretty cool figure. As for the paint, I did the same thing as my Sidearm Sideswipe. Flat black base coat, dry brushed steel, and then just sprayed the car mode in Krylon silver. Oh! And I covered up the stupid mech tech ports too.
