    Hello!
    I've wanted to do this figure for ages! I used a Classics Sunstreaker, as I thought the arms and legs being grey suited the final outcome better. Sideswipe's head from the Classics range was used, with the face painted. All enamel paints, a dark green, and a gothic deep purple, that matches the logo perfectly. Lots of thin coats were used, a very dull soft black on the windscreen then a shiny, gloss black for the rest of the figure to give more texture. The weapon fits in either hand, and slots onto the roof of the car. Bullet holes were carefully drilled into the windscreen, and cuts/indentations to give a 'battle damage' look!! Purple wheel trims, rear lights etc. Very smooth and easy to Transform. Varnished carefully at the end.

    while that is indeed a fantastic redeco, thumbs up for sure for the current appearance.

    I still prefer the original deco, it gives the character depth and is a good sidebar to the main story, now lay that pattern down on that mold and polish it up and you got money in the bank!

    I know i recognize that gun from somewhere....

    Thanks for the comments, advice. I thought the pictures were quite good, until I enlarged them!:) 
    Here's a few new pictures, I just hope they're a touch better than the originals.

    i could see this as his pre Drench's death color scheme given that sg autobot seekers use black as their primary colors

    This thing looks awesome. I love how the SG bots have a bunch of damage like they don't car at all. I think a bit of paint to show small shatter marks on the windshield where the bullet holes are would be nice. Also this is waaay better that the official mold used
