    now fine print

    no alt mode pics, as its not finalized or sealed

    i made the feet silver, like the original g2 figure, final will have more grey/silver, my g2 swipe is on its way to use as final reference picture

    waiting for generations alert for the grey thighs and arms, so thats why the shoulders arnt painted

    not sure if ima use the klassics swipe chest or generations red alert [as its white and can be dyed black], so the headlights arnt glued in place, so he's at an angle or theyll fall out

    for anyone who wants the green, its testors yellow+blue, 2 parts yellow to 1 part green

    i wish repro labels had a g2 swipe sheet with his spoiler and side panel stickers, oh well :(

    Looks great so far. You should email reprolabels with your request, they may be able to get that set into production, considering the current popularity of G2.

    the issue is that those stickers were factory applied, and not on the sticker sheet, so im not sure if they can make them or not

    i got a g2 swipe with perfect stickers coming soon in the mail, ill just grab a pic and print my own stickers someday

    I might try to do this once Red Alert is released. It may not look like a 600 dollar toy but it will work for me lol

    i heard alert has different shoulder pegs, so he might not be able to have a shoulder cannon

    still, its a really easy repaint, doesnt take any skill whatsoever

    and wow that red does not look good with flash at all

    I actually have a spare Sunstreaker that I had wished was Sideswipe cause I wanted white parts instead of gray. If you're willing to do a complete disassembly, I'm willing to trade gray for white. PM me if you want to.

    Is this upcoming Red Alert different from the Henkei release?
