    Lazy because I used Swerve as a base and didn't touch his red paint job. Used a slightly modified Universe Sideswipe head. Not too bad for only my second repaint, if I do say so myself.

    Great! Really works - totally Sideswipe. Amazing what a little head swap can do. Was anything else modified? I can't remember the original figure now!

    Aside from the paint, the only modification was done to the head. I clipped the top of the "ears" and sanded down the front of the "forehead."

    Neat little swap. I think the top half looks better with the head but then the movie style legs make it look a little off. But still, very nice.
