    This is an update to my "Robots at War" Sideswipe from years ago.

    The story is after both Optimus and the Matrix are destroyed, Prowl takes command of the Autobots. Under Prowl's leadership, all Autobots are required to make heavy weapon upgrades, in preparation for an offensive strike on the Decepticons. Sideswipe needed little convincing, he was a warrior, and at heart agreed with Prowl's directive. Many other Autobots did not, however, and left under the leadership of Inferno. Prowl quickly branded this offshoot traitors, and treated them as enemies.

    Just minor changes since the first version, I replaced his turret with one from PCC Bombshock, revised the color scheme a bit, and added some additional paint details. The dual blades are a nod to Sideswipe's appearance in ROTF. Let me know what you think.

    He is on ebay, if you are interested.

    Also check out my facebook page for some of my old customs. I just started it up, so "like" it if you do! Take care!

    Glad to see this. Will you be doing repaints of the other Cybertron Defense molds?

    And regarding your fiction, any ideas regarding Inferno and his crew?

    I'm glad to see the Autobots take up warmachine alt modes.Prowl looks scary as a big bot like that.

    Thanks guys. I was worried about the original teal and red colors, so I dyed him black first (wish I had a photo of him in all black) and then essentially drybrushed all the red in many many coats. The red turned out to be incredibly durable.

    Satomiblood, I intend to get to the rest of the characters, eventually, and as long as you keep sending me the right parts! I need to just flesh out the story more. I plan to do another soon. Not sure if you saw Bruticus.

    faceless/autovolt...thanks!

    autobotx23, thanks...your work is an inspiration.

    Nice! I always wanted to see a Bluestreak come out of this mold, because of the head design and all the firepower... but I guess that in terms of the story you're building, Bluestreak would be less likely to go with the battle upgrades by personality (though Inferno's such a gung-ho ready-to-fight guy, I'm surprised he wasn't with Prowl too).

    Great job! I was a big fan of your Prowl when you unveiled that one. :D

    Great idea. Bluestreak would be a natural for this mold too.

    Thank you for the nice comments. Here's a few more shots before he is on his way...
