    I completely agree with you that MP-12 is due for an update. The chest is definitely too wide, the calves too chunky, and the face too small. I would welcome a revision, but I know both Takara Tomy and Fanstoys are on the "cartoon clone" bandwagon right now, and while it's popular with a lot of collectors, it's not an aesthetic I can appreciate. I could see X-Transbots possibly making a Sideswipe that would interest me with a "hybrid" design, but few 3P manufacturers seem to be taking stabs at that character.

    I grew up around cars well before the cartoon started so the toys were a much better representation of what they looked like in my minds eye. Yes, the cartoon stirred the imagination but in the end it was the toys that carried the water for me.
    Sorry if my earlier ramblings came off as a bit trite and ruffled feathers. As they say, opinions are like assholes, everybody had one and no one wants to hear it.

    So I keep thinking I'd like to have this, but....was there ever a solution to the big hole in the knees?

    Have you ever messed with the BBQ KO hybrid Sideswipe/ Breakdown? I was wondering which would be better/ easier to "swipe" (lol) parts from to make similar mods to the BadCube version? BBQ KO or original recipe KO?

    True, but I didn't know if the arms or whatever else would be a better match to donate to Steamroll to copy TigerBlade's mod.

    It's possibly the best of all the Sideswipe head/face sculpts too.

    There's actually someone selling a quantity of two on ebay right now, that's why I asked. I'll order one and start dissecting him for parts. I will also order a KO MP14+ and Badcube's Steamroll. I'll use the BBQ arms and head for Sideswipe and two tires and a (repainted) spoiler for Red Alert. That helps too, since the BBQ spoiler is all one piece. I think MP14+ with a door/tire/spoiler mod would make a nice stubby fat Red Alert next to a tall skinny Sideswipe with an arm and head makeover.

    I've always been curious about the bbq monstrosity... not because I think it looks good... nope.. just because I collect all things sideswipe. Only thing is I refuse to spend more that 20 plus shipping on it... everywhere that has it wants like twice that...eff that noise.

    An XTB hybrid would probably look like my picture below (the KO Sideswipe/ Breakdown hybrid).

    Well guys, I got him. Stinkswipe:

    I actually like him (well parts of him to cannibalize anyway). He's got a Breakdown, Sideswipe and Red Alert (with a goofy face) head. I've never had any of the Lambos yet, but I guess he's pretty close to XTBs Breakdown. Love the headsculpt, the KFC/XTB hands, the feet, the rubber tires. I can't wait to get Steamroll and a KO MP14+ and mod em up to match (or close to) TigerBlade and OptimusTimelord's versions (seen below). I'll use this guys hands and lower arms with probably a piece of the red door on his legs, as well as his head. Then I'll use some combination of the tires to make MP14+'s arm tires larger, as well as the spoiler for Red's back, and of course Timelord's door mod, to end up with something like this:

    I quoted his name in the pic (OptimusTimelord), but I forgot to post a link to his custom thread. I plan to do the same (ish), but with MP14+ instead of plain MP14.

    I decide to swap the Badcube Sideswipe and Redalert faces. It’s an improvement in my opinion. upload_2021-12-31_17-2-44.jpeg upload_2021-12-31_17-2-13.jpeg
