    Update - I'm selling the G2 Sideswipe, if you want it shoot me a PM with an offer or else it's hitting ebay. Also I will be posting pics of the touched up car mode. I fixed a few spots where red was showing through, nothing major though

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items...eswipe-other-customs-plus-2pack-cyclonus.html

    Here's my version of G2 Sideswipe. I've always like the color scheme and now that I know I'll never own the Botcon version I made my own. First I tried to dye it black and it turned out crappy so I just painted it black and red.

    It's a stock Hasbro Sideswipe with gloss black added almost entirely to just the car mode. I added some to the shoulders and a bit of red and silver to some other areas. The windows and roof were dropped in rubbing alcohol (99%) to remove the tint then I painted underside of the windows green (kind of wish it was more neon, hindsight is a b*tch sometimes) and the top part black

    I still need some G2 symbols too

    Also I threw in some of my WIP Diaclone Sunstreaker pics. I've pretty much only paint the yellow stripes on his head red. Not sure if I'll actually go full on police or just keep him a Fire Chief since my Alert is the Henkei version so they look different enough

    Very slick. I love how you go around all the problems this mold has, by only painting the alt mode black.
    It works very well. :thumbs2:

    They should make Generation-2 Sideswipe a mass market figure. Even thought I have the Botcon 2010 customizing class figure, it's such a great idea for a Universe Sideswipe repaint that I think everyone should be able to enjoy it. And while their at it, they should make Gen.2 Jazz, Grimlock, and Starscream from their Classics/Universe/Generations figures as well.

    Definitely go for the full on police deco on the Sunstreaker. It's just not the Diaclone if it's not.

    Very nice!
    The only original Diaclone I own is "Convoy".
    The repaints remind me of early 1980s...

    Thanks. I love black carformers too. The other day I was just thinking that I wanted to just pick a car and paint it black just because.

    Thanks. I never really thought much about Diaclone until I started customizing bots. Working on red Mirage right now :D 


    Also I'm selling the G2 Sideswipe if you guys want it shoot me a PM with an offer or else it's hitting ebay

    I'm finally working on my own G2 and police Sideswipes. (And I appreciate your posting your inspiring work here!)

    Any chance you could send me a link or email the sticker set you designed to me? I'd be hella grateful. Shoot me a PM or such. :-D
