    Here is my first of many ROTF Customs and my first custom to be posted on this forum. The second I got my hands on ROTF Sideswipe I went to work. I had to end up using 3 of them due to paint problems along the way. But I am very happy as to how the final product came out. I modded a couple things to set him apart and make him more like Sunstreaker. I altered the head and added a spoiler from a model kit to the rear. I also made a custom plate with a water slide decal program. Everything was painted with high quality enamels and was sealed with a coat of Future to give his alt mode that new car shine. I also put some future on various parts of his robot mode, though you can really tell in these photos. I hope everyone likes him and let me know what you think.

    Great job! :thumbs2: The black stripe is a nice touch. And the head antennae fit perfectly with a movie style Sunstreaker. Does his head clear easily when TFing him to car mode?

    Sunstreaker looks good as a Corvette, but you make it look FANTASTIC!:thumbs2:  The spoiler is a great touch, although to be honest I like spoilers on any kind of car.

    Awesome! Your choice of paint colors and apps look totally sweet on this mold.

    Yep, it clears perfectly. The onlthing I really did to the original head was sand down/ away the two middle horns and left the wings on the side intact.

    LOL, Your welcome


    Glad you guys like him. I plan on repainting Sideswipe in G1 colors but I think I may wait till the red swerve repaint comes out.

    Great idea with those mods to differentiate him from Sideswipe. The paint job is well thought of and very clean.

    Topnotch work! :)

    Saw this in your siggy and I had to come and check it out.....caught my attention really good.

    I love the color you used to paint him up....really looks good.

    Only thing that kinda throws it off for me, is the spoiler, I like it, its a very nice touch, but it seems like its setting too far back in alt mode....maybe its just me, I dunno.

    Noe the less, its a really cool custom. Nice job :thumb

    Glad you like him. Yeah the pics made it seem that way, but it looks great in person. The photos don't really do this justice. It takes on a whole new awesome vibe when it's in your hands. I almost don't want to sell him, but I need some funding for my next projects.

    HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING!!!!:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bay  You have a flawless paint job with just the perfect colors, a sweet new spoiler, very nice resculpted head, ridiculously nice bot mode details (WOW!!!!), and the perfect license plate to top it all off. There have been some really great repaints of this mold lately, but damn man, you Sunstreaker just brings the figure to a whole other level of awesome! What is your secret to getting him to look so good? What paint did you use? MAN! I don't think you can say enough about it, it's just so NICE! One question though, did you also fit Sunstreaker with a new set of tires or lower his ground clearance or something because I don't remember his wheels looking like that originally? Whatever you did with them, please explain it because it is yet another great improvement you've made. I hope to see more of your handy work soon.:rock
