    Hello there. i forgot what episode it was, but for one brief moment, before Optimus Prime grabbed it and ruined it, Sideswipe had a rocket pack. I'm wondering if anybody can make one that can snap onto the back of G1 Sideswipe?
    What would it cost and how long will it take to fabricate, paint, and detail one?
    I'm no good at scratch-building yet, but would like to have something unique for my red Sideswipe. Thank you!

    Also wondering if somebody can make a cartoon accurate head for G1 Jetfire?

    Wow, I'm really surprised that nobody wants to take on what should be a simple project here. After seeing so many awesome custom work here, I'd thought this should be a snap for some of you!
    Anybody want to give it a whirl?

    I'm starting to think I'll make my own. Just get some styrene plastic, make some what of a box, some putty for detailing, and jet nozzles from a model airplane. Should be pretty simple for a first timer. Question is, what's the best way to mount it to the figure? It'll be mounted on the car's roof as that is basically his back in robot mode.

    Aw yes that look's like it'll work. Look's like it was Sideswipes to begin with! But I don't recall those wings on it though, will have to cut them off. Thank you!
    Now the question is, can I get just that one accessory without purchasing the entire figure?

    They're not wings, they're the staps. Like to hold it on.


    And I doubt you could buy it seperate, and THS Convoy is crazy expensive. You really are better off makign your own or just throwing parts together.

    Although the user's name is "Anovasinn", I concur, it was made to look like Sideswipe's jetpack, but fit on G1 Prime. Might be modified to work with him easily enough though!
    Looks great too, I picked up an unpainted one to (eventually) paint up for my "Hilltopper" custom...

    I lost some PM's when doing some box cleaning. I'm just wondering how's the work going on the rocket-pack? Could the artist post some pics please? Even if it's still in progress? Thank you!
