    I don't consider this to be a custom of any kind, just a mass part swap.

    They are pretty cool though eh? :) 

    Anyone else bothered to do this yet?

    Yep, after I got the Henkei ones I figured these were fair game for customizing.

    That's cool.

    Was there any reason to be snide about it?

    I wasnt being snide. I was just saying that great minds can converge on similar ideas without having previous contact.

    Word.

    I have to say, that the yellow on the US release of the mold works much better with the Sideswipe config. The paint on Sunstreaker's side is just awful.

    Is spinout a name you came up with? Cause Diaclones dont have names. They just call them by the car name that they are.

    Im confused at what Im seeing. Are those Fan made CG renderings? So how are those "correct" Look at the original diaclones for the real "correct" versions. Yellow New Countach and Red Countach Super Tuning. Those are the REAL versions. ehobby just named yellow sideswipe as tigertrack. Just some random name they labeled him as.

    Fact is, these are diaclone homages. Not G1 TF homages. That is how I look at it.

    I wonder why hasbro/takara decided to swap Sunstreaker as Yellow and Sideswipe as red. Why not just leave them as they were?

    Well, Tigertrack is an existing toy, a Figure King release of the diaclone version:
    Tigertack (2003) - Autobot Sentry - www.tfu.info

    Spinout is the name that is misreferenced on Sideswipe's original Bio from G1.

    Yeah I knew about the Ehobby tiger track. But didnt know where Spinout came from thanks. A tad bit obscure for me. But it is just easier saying "tiger track" than "Diaclone No. 15 Yellow New Countach" haha

    Here is a pic gallery, thanks to Maz, of the real Diaclone Tigertrack
