    One of my hardest to sell figures was sideswipe her. I used 2 Roadbots a Gundam and some various GI Joe fodder to make him come to life. I used a modern Lambo body and swpped his head out with a roadbots that needed very little tweeking. I gave him SS paint scheme then got to work on the extras that make him who he is. The rocket pack came from a gundam and was modded to fit SS along with that I also included his shoulder rockets launcher to complete his G1 look. I set the rocket launcher and the rocket pack up to be inter changable in auto mode as well. I figured that he could use these as an extra boost whe nescaping from some Decps or to show off and the rocket gave him that extra bit of firepowerthat he might need when cruisin around!

    Sadly I sold him but he is now in the land down under with my Alternators Soundwave!

    I like him! Nice pick for Sideswipe. Which Roadbot head did you use? The red of the car body looks almost like factory plastic. If I didn't know better, I'd never know he was painted over yellow.

    How much actual modding did you do to the transformation of the Roadbot? I'm curious how much parts-forming is involved.

    Nice work! Is it bigger than an alternator in bot mode?
    That said, both modes are great!

    Ahh the question:
    SMOG-Getting the head to sit right was the hardest par twith that and the base body need to have his shoulder reworked or it always wanted to be in Hulk Hogan flex mode. Besides the front and back bumper not much parts forming goin on for him. The doors turned into side slirts in bot mode but I always just removed them as my personnal preferrence. The front bumper actually was supposses to merge with a bird that sat inside of the engine. I kept bird for soundwave.
    Ptitvite- hes classics scale hes roughly the size of Hotrod (rodimus)
    Tony- He was to sale because I liked him so much. it was SS or Verizon I had to opt out and pay my phone bill :0

    Thanks for comments everyone glad you liked him.
