    I know this has been done several times before but I am very happy with how this guy is turning out. Just need to paint in some details and print a license plate and he should be done. This would have been a much easier custom if I had a Sideswipe but I couldnt find one for a reasonable price. I used a Red Alert and parts of a junker Sunstreaker and the brown Beast Wars 10th Primal head.

    There will be no alt mode pics. I am sure I could transform him but I would end up chipping the paint. I tried sanding the joints to leave room for that but I guess I didnt sand enough. Crap!!!

    Should I add the chest decal like the one below or leave him as is? I cant decide!!!

    Wow, the head choice is absolutely perfect.

    As for the chest emblem, as much as a Holy Grail find as that toy is for me, I think your custom looks a lot better without it. The colors are really crisp and your paint job is flawless. I think the decal would actually divert attention from your hard work.

    Awesome job again. If you ever decide to sell this beauty be sure to let me know ^_^

    I love this.
    Works really well.
    Ditch the decal though.
    That G2 thing is lame.
    It's cool enough without it.
    If you do decide to put a decal on there, come up with something of your own.

    Nice! If I didn't know better, I'd say you didn't customize him at all!
    Well, I never! :lol 
    However I must agree it looks far better without the decal. But if it was Go-bot Soundwave we were talking about...

    I've had two G2 gobot Primes, both packaged, and neither one had that chest label ... was that a regional thing or did I miss a variant release?

    As for your custom, I don't think it could be any better. Add a G2 symbol and you're good :)

    I want one too!
    So cool... and Hasbro should be thinking along these lines to get more out of their molds.
    i love the idea and execution, and I love your yellow application, so smooth and perfect,

    No, I couldn't find a reasonably priced sideswipe. Everything red has been painted

    Cool. Looks like it could be a Botcon exclusive.
