    I'm planning on doing all the official and Diaclone redecos of the original molds, Alert, Deepcover, ClampDown, Red-Streaker, Poice-Streaker, G2 Swipe, etc etc. I'm just kinda bummed that Swipe doesn't seem to be getting a new head, that's kinda sucking the fun out of the project for me :/

    But he IS getting a new head. It's been said and reported on over and over again. It was shown at Botcon and the new Henkei images that surfaced show him with that new head as well.

    Really? All the shots I saw appeared to still have 'Streak's head-crest-wings going on. If he IS getting a new head that would be awesome.

    Hasbro has said that on MULTIPLE occasions.

    At Botcon they made it clear the art shown was with the old head.

    While I'm no customizer at all, I'd really like to see someone attempt making Headmaster Sunstreaker ala IDW.

    I'm sure its not within the realm of possibility especially with how ridiculously talented some of you guys are!

    Hey Detour, where are the henkei pics of Swipe? I've only seen the Botcon ones.

    Heh. That was kinda the point of the mould... :p 
    I'm baffled that you're thinking of the Bttlechargers from this fella, though - how'd you figure they transform the same? The only connection is the roof chest. Though I suppose they did kinda transform a bit like G1 'Streaker...

    Looks to me like this is a pretty final production piece, and he's still got the "streaker head AND Streaker's weapon no less :/

    So I guess the question now becomes, where does get source of readily available 'Swipe stand-in heads?

    Wish they'd do a Robot Heroes one, that would solve everything :)

    Looks like the seller didn't bother to take photos of the one he has, and just filched a stock photo. Sideswipe is getting a new head - not a new weapon, though. Here's one of the Botcon pics...
