    The story...
    Sideburn is all about speed. He is the newest member of the Autobot team, and his speed and agility makes him the perfect scout.
    He seems to go so fast that he almost disappears into a blue and white blur as he accelerates away. He has made many modifications to reduce weight, so much to that he no longer carries any weapons. He isn’t defenseless though, as he can generate enough friction that his hands and rear spoiler glow white hot, enabling him to slice his way out of any situation.

    Not sure if I like the engine or the faction symbol better in vehicle mode...

    The figure...
    I did some slight modifications to his head, by extending his nose, and repainting his mouth. Unfortunately the mods to the head made his face a little rougher than I'd like.

    I chose to simplify Sideburn’s colorscheme by eliminating the yellow, my attempt to keep him within the “animated” aesthetic.

    He is on ebay, if you are interested, follow the link under my avatar. Also check out my facebook page for some of my old customs. I just started it up, so please "like" it for updates. Take care!

    Snazzy ;)  I like how well it works, I can only hope the club exclusive comes out as well as this.

    One thing though, in Animated wasn't it insinuated that the eyes give away faction with Blue Autobot, Red con, yellow Neutral and purple turncoat?

    If this were all 3 Autobot bros, I'd be bidding myself.

    I've always wanted an Animated Omega Prime:/

    great job.

    Very nicely done. I like that the flames are as simple as they are. They fit in well with the series aesthetic.

    Sideburn's toy actually has a crossbow weapon, so Rodimus' bow would look cool with this one.

    Excellent job.

    Very nice work, a scouter over his eye would really push it over the edge!
