    thanks to Peaugh for the leg swap idea. & repolabels for the stickers as i was going to do it to sideswipe but it works better on sunstreaker. i painted his legs and arms to match like sideswipe so let me know what you think thanks X

    I got to say they both look different and some new things are added that I can see and well they look awesome together or separately. So nice approvements Xhairs.

    so how you get the feet on your streaker to not go duck feet? I even tried shaving the bottom part of the leg (where the feet touches) but it still won't go as far as yours.

    thanks guys. im glad you like the looks of them. SCprime i cut in to the foot instead of the legs. i noticed that it works better with sunstreaker then sideswipe. not sure why but they do. hope this helps.

    Bro a question, how'd you modified the feet because my Sunstreaker's feet won't move like that. I mean I can't make it look like the one on your Streaker? How'd you do the ankle twist ?

    I see. Was just my opinion anyway. I think the work you've done looks good either way. I'm glad I came back to this thread to see that cutting the top of the foot was possible. I'm gonna try it when I get home from work today. I'm pretty excited about it actually. Thanks for posting pics on it

    Thanks, I'll try to understand how the cut was made, because I cannot twist the ankle like what you did, does it need to have the foot removed ? unscrewed or interchanged to achieve that look on the foot ? :)

    Modding Sunstreaker's feet never occurred to me before. What tools did you use to do it?
