Sweet work! If the stock version had looked like that I would have bought it in a heartbeat.
Turned out really nice, the paint especially went on pretty smooth. For some reason I kinda wanna see a spoiler somehow worked in. Really impressed with this and reminds me of the Universe alt mode.
I now kinda wish it was compatible with the giant Engine turbine A-16 we got for Sunstreaker to give him his signature look.
Holy shit. I saw the car at first and I was like "it looks good", then I saw the bot and I was all "HOLY Hell that's pretty"
Vehicle mode is awesome. Try some 3x reading glasses or higher. Helps me a ton. Hence they fight so some imperfections give them Character. Yeah sunstreaker is a perfectionist on his paint tho lol
Not the best pic but I've been working on something the last couple of days.
Needs cleaning up and painting.
Then just a couple more parts to do.
How long have u been customizing
Love this. Very cool
I love this custom
Hi. I guess I started maybe 4-5 years ago.
I went through a first stage of pulling apart figures and swapping/repainting parts. Then, around 2 years ago, I bought a 3D printer. That gave me much more freedom to design and create.
Thanks for the great feedback so far, everyone
The A-16 makes him look perfect.
I like a lot this custom, and yes, the universe lambros were huge compared to other bots.
Also, have you considered of making a Sideswipe with Breakdown's mold? I mean, It's not the best mold out there, but it works better as Sideswipe rather than what Hasbro gave us in wave 4 (Sunstreaker.)
Is this an Lazy Eyebrow Reviewer reference?
I am planning a Sideswipe version. But, my plan is to use the same mold. I think I can achieve a solid Sideswipe by swapping out the head, designing another chest panel, repainting and giving him a shoulder mounted cannon.
Guess we'll see how it plays out
Updated with new pic showing redesigned, bulkier air vents and a new rifle - with a port to attach the exhaust (which doubles up as a scope in robot mode).
Still need to paint both new parts.
I'm now also debating whether to give him some new, deluxe ball jointed hands like Trailbreaker; but haven't decided yet.
That. Is. Absolutely masterpiece grade man. *applause*
3D printer very cool. Keep up the ideas and work. Wish I could get time in on my 4 wip. Galvatron. Prime Megs. Huffer and G1 sound-wave.
Have you figured out how to make the vents a part of the vehicle mode yet?
I have. They will plug into a 5mm port on the top of the vehicle.
At first I was trying to come up with something more elaborate that involved combining the air vents with the rifle so they could all be stored together but I couldn't get it to look right. So, the rifle just has to stay detached.
I've actually started painting the vents and the rifle, along with sideswipe, today.
Hopefully by next weekend both the twins should be completed.
