    Okay, I've spent the last week and a half working on an upgrade kit for Sideswipe's robot mode. It's still a WIP and I realize I'm going back on my "promise" of no more WIP threads, but I haven't been able to contain myself. The parts need to be sanded, refined, and painted yet. Anyway, I'll leave it up to you to guess what this upgrade is comprised of.

    blaster, cannon and possibly either a cartoon accurate jumper pack or panels for a leg mod

    Jet pack, but yea.

    Although I'm not really aiming for 100% cartoon accuracy here. Anything beats just having a puny gun and backpack as your accessories.

    Sideswipe is my favorite TF hands down. I'm excited to see this upgrade kit.

    Yea, it just kills me to not be working on it right now (at my job). I was sanding the jetpack down with the dremel lastnight.

    The cool thing about it is that I don't have to touch the figure at all. Everything will fit naturally. And most of it is random kibble...including parts from a retractable pen.

    a quick and easy shoulder launcher: classics rodimus's
    gun. that's not to say a better gun, launcher that attaches to his shoulder and jetpack would look better on him though

    Yep. Classics Rodimus' fits naturally. Same with '74 BB, but I like the former better. The trick is making the right kind of missile.

    I am totally happy with using the shoulder launcher that the toy comes with. Now, a rifle would indeed be cool.

    shortening and modifying the Universe Galvatron missile would work perfectly. I've recently noticed that Galvatron, Rodimus and animated Blitzwing's missiles all use the same size launcher (the blizwing one won't fit the others for obvious reasons though)
