If this was already posted please just merge it with the pre-existing thread as I can't seem to find one. Anyway, moving on... Apologies in advance for some of the quality of the photos. So I managed to score me a Shadow Blade Sideswipe (HA Sideswipe repaint) from my local Walmart and took loads of photos. I really dig the paint scheme and the transparent purple windows. I love everything about the Corvette Mode. It's so beautifully detailed. It's a very nice unintentional homage to G2 Sideswipe. If you look at the photos below you can barely tell it's a transformer when in Vehicle mode. Now, onto the Robot Mode. The first thing I noticed I wasn't happy with right off the bat aside from the gigantic backpack is his eyes, (THEY ARE PAINTED BLACK WTF HASBRO?) I had the take the head apart and soak the back piece partially (only submerging the painted eye parts). Anyway, so I used some rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip and Napkin to get the paint off and now Light can shine through the eyes as originally intended. So anyway, there's not really much to go into about the overall bot mode since it's exactly the same as HA Sideswipe. Although one thing I really do like is the Arm Blades. I really love the painted details. I wish they could have done without that Hidious All-Spark Blue on the legs though. So I think all-n-all the toy is awesome, and with a little tweaking the large backpack can be condensed in size just enough so it doesn't look so Blugh. (not shown in photos sorry guys) Ah yes..., I almost forgot about Mikaela Baines. She's not only a remold but also has a different paint scheme from the first one and her hair is pulled back into a ponytail. Now, on to the photos.
