    Hi there. Make yourself at home.

    As I'm getting caught up, more projects are seeing the light of day, like Sunstreaker!

    He began like as Sidearm Sideswipe, painted silver with clear paint over the top. I shaved down his chin to give him a slightly different appearance.

    Thanks for your time!

    Love it! Really nice shade of gold, and it goes well with the red windshield. Great work!

    I really like how you made him gold rather than yellow,makes much more sense alongside his bro,considering Sideswipe is silver rather than red.

    Not sure I like the red windows with the yellow / gold...small thing really.

    But over all looks damn good. I like the Sidearm mold, better than the ROTF
    with the super long always there eye pokers.

    Great job on the paint! Clear tints over silver always look deep and rich.The red accents are a perfect compliment to the yellowy gold paint and red windows. :thumbs2:

    I've been contemplating doing a Sunstreaker from this mold... you've just convinced me to go for it!!! Great job! I can only hope mine looks at least half as good as yours!

    Nicely done. May I ask how you painted him and with what brand?

    Also if someone wants to see this figure painted red, I painted him mostly red for my custom Burnout in my sig. Though my painting skills are that of an infant compared to this...

    Yeah, I think it's just the perfect variant of that. Not too yellow, not too gold, just enough shine, you know.

    Also, I'm really liking how the red was mixed in, and the same goes for this being the side arm variant instead of one of the regulars, what with the fact that Sunstreaker was always a little different from the traditional transformation to begin with. All very nice touches. :)

    Wah! I was going to try my first Sunstreaker custom on Rally Sideswipe when I eventually buy him. Well, at least you gave me a visual of what I need to do without copying yours. Hopefully it will be good, but probably not as good as yours.

    Nice work! I absolutely love the colours and the flashiness. Very stylish.
