    Human Alliance Sideswipe repaint

    Hi Guys,
    Well. here is another one I touched up...its a great figure right out of the box, so not much to do.
    Painted the various metallic details to his robot body, added some rear shock springs, and wrist blades, and gave the vehicle mode a shiny coat of gloss.

    thanks for lookin'.

    Joe

    Don't know if it's your repaint, the custom blades or what, but this looks a lot better than the HA 'swipe in the feedback thread. A lot less chunky.

    Also, I agree with the comment about your Predators. Great work.

    Thanks! New photos were taken an are up on page 1.

    Yeah I agree, I made shorter ones and attached them...see new pics. The blades in the concept picture extend down to mid wheel, so I went with that length.

    It has to be the angle of the other pictures, he looks great in person.

    Thanks! I made the blades with sheet styrene...

    Have you done anything to give him extra stability? That skating pose (top left of the thumbnails) is awesome.

    If he can pose like this out the box, he just went from a 'hmmmm well it is Sideswipe so I guess I'll get him.' to a 'GAH! I want it now!'
