    Sideways isn't THAT bad of a character.
    I in fact found him rather interesting. But I also think that the armada one is good enough left as is. Lack of articulation? so what? doesn't bother me cause I like my bricks. :p

    The part where you want somebody ELSE to do it because you don't want to? Scratchbuilding skills or not, simply demanding somebody make something YOU want doesn't work when it would probably involve a lot of investment on the part of the person making what you want.

    If you seriously want somebody to make a new Armada Sideways, you can always comission one. It will cost you a pretty penny, but you will only have to fork over cash for what you want.

    I'd like to see more Armada updates. It was the actual playskool aesthetic that turned me off on most, not the characters, really.

    That being said, Universe 2.0 Hot Shot needed an update from the get go :lol

    I'd love to see Armada updates. I may purchase a few in the future just to overhaul them. It was the lack of articulation that made me avoid most of that line (I can forgive G1, obviously :p )

    nooo. sorry i guess the way i wrote that made it sound like that.
    i want to SEE one done. im not saying "HEY MAKE ME ONE.. NOW!" im saying, someone should take on this project. because it would be cool to see. and maybe someday down the line i can make my own. but im not like you say "demanding" someone to make me one

    You could always see this as a way to make your own, though. ;) 
    Maybe get an original and add articulation? I'd imagine a minicon with an LED installed for his eyes in head mode would look awesome!

    i did try to make one using animated prowl. and succeeded. only thing is that it looks too animated. and not so classics.

    Naturally :)  You're credited as my inspiration on this one :) 

    I was committed to maintaining the mechanism, as I felt that was the best part of the character (not to mention the original toy!)

    I want to apologize for this. I'm totally a doofus. Fome reason I saw your post saying the request for an Armada Sideways but somehow in my mind that translated to Armada Sideswipe.

    Probably! But the custom-market is pretty lumpy, so you might not get what you deserve after putting in all the effort I'm sure you did. Set the price where you'd like to, and try your luck though, what can it hurt?

    HAHA that's a VERY Different Armada S'guy!
