    The head looks like it could be Sideswipe's, but Im not too sure. What you've got here looks really good. Can we see some vehicle mode shots?

    That looks sweet I do agree that the original head wouldn't cut it and that one is a bit better but not sure I'm sold on it. It's your call in the end. The paint looks really good though

    Looks fantastic, really loving the colour scheme. For (maybe) a better suited head, check out gravity bots Sideswipe!

    I'm loving the color scheme! Excellent execution. The head fits in well IMO.

    Keep it up!

    Nice. Almost any head is better than the twins heads. I am a big G1 Skidz fan, so bravo.

    Awseome! I like the head a lot! I'm not sold on the big "c@&knocker" hand. Maybe swap out Mudflaps right hand for a more uniform look? Either way dude your paint apps are absolutely flawless and this is a great custom!

    I tried it with my Skids and Mudflap for shits n' giggles... it actually works very well. If I had any faith in my painting skills at all, I'd probably try something like this, and do an arm swap (leaving the Mudflap leftover with two huge arms... wonder if he'd be able to transform like that?). Good job, I like it.
