    Pretty much painted Sideways and fakebusker83's Scolex Spiker silver with a black base coat to look more like the CGI pics I found. In car mode I painted the lower rear and chromed the tailpipes. I also chromed the wheels, including the "fake" one on his left arm. The Reprolabel set is applied.
    I was surprised Sideways' right hand could support a 5mm peg! I also included a pic of are all of my painted fakebusker83 accessories: DotM Stascream weapons, Scolex Spiker, and Shockwave hose.

    The spiker fits really well with Sideways! Which made me really glad as SW's my favourite movie character...I'm shocked/surprised that his hand is a 5mm LOL

    Well done H...I feel really happy looking at the pictures. :3

    Edit: To bad the mold doesn't have mechtech ports...

    Yeah, I just happened to be painting my Sideways when my Shapeways shipment arrived. I figured I'd paint your spiker, too, then just rubberband it onto Sideways. Then first I figured I'd just try to slide it in and presto!
    I'm awfully tempted to get more of these darlings with my next order now for Barricade and Crankcase :)

    Dude, awesome job!

    When you mentioned 5mm hole, I thought you meant the hole where the fake tire is screwed in. I've been trying to figure out a way to utilize that hole but it's a shade or so too small. But when I saw the closeup of yours, I realized you meant the hand can grasp something 5mm. Sweet. You saved me from wrecking my Dead End and Sideways as I really wanted them to have a weapon. Thanx.

    That is nice!

    If I may make a humble suggestion:

    Do you suppose you can mod the gun and Sideways to store the weapon in vehicle mode? I've noticed in his vehicle mode there happens to be a space between the legs that could perhaps accommodate the Spiker.

    Hmmm... I could try seeing if it would fit. I don't think I'll mod anything, though. I just pass the weapon off to another 'Con (right now Soundwave's wielding it) or put it in my accessory box...

    Nope, but they're available in different materials, I believe. I just ordered them in soft white flexible. You can click on the link in my first post for more details...
