    Had plans for this right when they announced classics Sideswipe, but surgery & univ took time away from this project. But here he is, minus some repro stickers I'm still designing.

    I'd maul for the botcon sticker sheet, but dont have a billion $. I kept the solid windows as the clear didnt look nice as swipe doesnt have an interior unlike hotrod.

    Used:
    Classics Sideswipe (main body, hands)
    Henkei Red alert (head swap)
    Generations Red Alert (thighs, arms)

    Thanks, I actually own 2 g2 swipes, one from 199X that I bought as a kid, and another complete one I got a few months back from ebay.

    I plan on making another, but with the RID prowl mold, and maybe a movie one with the sidearm 'swipe.

    Looks nice and clean. I never really cared for the G2 color schemes, but Sideswipe was one pf the exceptions. You did this justice.
