    I wanted a shinier Sideswipe, so I enlisted Bombatron to chrome this sucker!

    the blades (from Vector Prime) are magnetically attached , and the tires are coated with a spray-on rubber layer.

    The chrome is great! Nice job!

    I think the dry brushing takes away a lot from the overall look of the robot mode though. It's the clash of extremes, IMHO.

    wonder if the blades would work on the delux, albeit they would be oversized.

    I think it's too chrome for the car mode. But the bot mode takes away the clean look of the Alt mode.

    To share a commisioned dx sideswipe from my customer:

    I wanted that look, I really love contrasting bot/alt colors and textures.

    BTW , I lol whenever you post in my threads. My name is Toby as well, which has to be an anomaly .

    ya the chrome is sweeeeeeeeet i think robot should be more dark...shiny and dull clash, but if it had more contrast it would be sweeter on the eyes...darker bot and def best HA ive ever seen, but hard to tell when you dont see it in person

    I agree with you here, It looks a LOT different in person. But anyone that has photographed chrome knows the pains. this setting was the only one that didn't glare too much. I laughed at one set of pics I did, only the chrome showed up, the rest was just black background!

    The bot parts are a bit darker than the the chrome, I don't know if the camera made it lighter. or the background made the chrome darker, or both.

    The chrome of the alt mode reminds me of Flight of the Navigator for some reason. LOL

    I already know Bombatron's chrome work is great... awesome job with everything else. Those blades are killer.

    yeah , I agree ss is the fig they put the least thought into . I don't know why , with so much kibble, they couldn't have made the blades out of something else. even the deluxe does better. I have plans to fix the back pack, but I haven't fou d the right parts yet.

    I agree. The chrome makes for a great alt mode, but doesn't really mesh so well IMO with the rest of the bot mode.

    I say go for a completely chrome lucky draw-like Sideswipe. :)
