    Anyone else thought of this? I just bought him and his alt mode minus all the ads makes him look like a movieverse Sideburn. He could just use some minor paint apps and he'd be good to go.

    Maybe Sideburn if you used Roadbuster's head-for some reason, Topspin's doesnt work for me for that lol

    Sorry bud, I just can't see it, but Sideburn does need some love though. Still holding out for a blue Animated Rodimus deco.

    Yeah I hadn't even transformed him when I posted this, but give him a different head and I think he'd be pretty good for Sideburn. Hell, his kibble's even very similar. I just wish it was on hinges and not ball joints... Keeps popping out.

    Honestly, other than the blue, and maybe the very basic shape of the alt-mode, I'm just not seeing the similarity. Also, it's Side Burn, not Sideburn.

    I do not think it would work as a repaint. He would need a new head for sure and i do not think the arms would work for Side Burn. I think they would need remolded. This might work.

    That being said with the movie using real cars or close to real cars with changes to avoid licensing they could easily do a movieverse Side Burn in a dodge viperish mold. I also think that the hard top Stingray could make a great alt mode for Side Burn.
