    LOL!! What's goin on guys. So seeing how I am still on vacation, I'm in the process of catching up on customs and other things like refinishing my dads staircase (totally unrelated, i know.). Anyway, one of the customs I was working on was a sidearm sideswipe. I love this mold, and if it weren't for that STUPID backpack, he'd be perfect! So, I made it removable by simply making it into a clip on piece. This guy looks amazing out of the package, but get a really good paint job on him with some polyurethanes.. OH.. MAH.. GAWD. (Where the hell'd THAT come from?? :eek: ) I've got more pictures to take of this guy yet but this relaly is just an straight up repaint, nothing like what my battle blade BB went through. One thing I do plan on doing in the future (the one that'll stay in my collection) is that I want to make the swing arms the doors are on to be able to rotate so that the doors can sit higher up above his shoulders and still sit "properly". Just haven't been able to figure out how to do that just yet (maybe one these here super awesome pro's can gimme some ideas?? ;) ). Anyway, ONTO PICTURES!!

    Gorgeous I like that you left the windows red like mine, but I did get the new repaint of the walmart exclusive so I can rob the blue windows out of it hahaha.

    Great job on him though

    Gonna shoot you an email later though

    Thanks man, yea, I'm going to grab the WM Exclusive for my next one as well because the tint I made should cover the blue better than it does the red, or at least it wont be as noticeable anyway. Also, got your email and sent you a PM back about it.

    Not disagreeing, but it's really hard to remove them without removing the silver paint under the red. And then you still have the red windows. *shrugs* To each their own.

    Yeah, I was commenting on the fact that the paint job looks nice on it as you went the route of going straight silver. :thumb

    OH!! Well then in that case, thank you much sir! I really hope I can get my leader prime finished up soon, as I would LOVE to see what everyone thinks of my idea's for him! I really put a LOT of thought into what I'm doing with it. Then there's the Ver. 2.0 I've got idea's cooking up for already.. Here's hoping they work though!! Thanks again!

    I wish hasbro would give us a Sideswipe that has guns & swords.I would love to see that. Also, they would need to be the guns that come with Sidearm Sideswipe.

    Another wonderful custom, OP! For those clips, are those just snipped pieces already on SS or did you have to find another piece to use? I'll have to take a look at mine sometime...

    If your talking about the clip I made for his backpack/rear windows, it wad made from the existing connecting arm piece. I just cut the hoke that connects the piece onto the back into a C clip, :)
