Think it's a custom repaint, that paint scheme is just too good to be true
I'd like it to be real.
I don't like the look of the original's robot mode with silver vehicle parts. A red vehicle mode is a good contrast to the silver and grey robotic parts.
They both look good. I'd love to see one painted as G1 Tracks. You know, with it being a corvette and all.
I don't know if it's really an official toy in the works or not, but the robot mode looks sweet with the red.
I suppose it is possible that Sideswipe would get a G1 repaint-Jazz (and to a lesser extent, Ratchet) got one in the first movie line, after all.
Hm. I've not known TF08.NET to show off customs, only pre-release toys.
That robot mode looks fantastic.
didn't prince make a song about him. something , something red Corvette?
Aw well, it shows how nice a red version of the toy looks at any rate. Here's hoping the powers that be pay attention to the fan demand for a red version
Crap, so now I gotta buy 3? One for each Gen of Sideswipe and one for Tracks? Ugh, twist my arm whydontcha?...
That proves how much better it looks in red, I'll be holding out in case hasbro go for it.
Should've painted the grill black, and left the license plate silver. Minor nitpicks aside, good work. It doesn't look like an easy figure to paint.
And Sunstreaker too.
Now THAT is what Sideswipe should look like. That was a stunning design mixed with a fantastic color scheme. I know everyone keeps saying "Well, they cast and designed the Corvette before they named the character" but that doesn't always excuse it. There are a huge number of red sportscar autobots, for one thing.
Nice thing about the design tho, is with a little change in the head sculpt and clip on weapons, you can make movie Sunstreaker, Tracks, Rodimus, Speedbreaker, Blurr, or any number of Autobots.
sweet, I like this and will def be buying that!
Nah, I think I'll stick to remembering him as a 'Ghini for now... he can be Sideswipe's fraternal twin.
To my mind thats the nicest of the ROTF toys so far, the feet are a bit off though (i find most of the new toys to be really ill conceived). The custom colours look great.
He looks a lot better in red then he does in Silver, I'm definately going to hold off on buying him until Hasbro comes forward with their planned recolors. Hopefully we get a red and black one and a blue one with the flaming wings. But then again, I also thought they'd repaint the 74 Camaro mold too, and look how that ended up.
I really hope that this repaint comes out because it amazing!!
