    So maybe not the best mold for Sizzle but I think it was close enough to take a shot at it. I made the cab top of the car removable so it can serve as a shield in addition to making transformation easier. I'll post up alt mode pics soon.

    Update 5.15.2019:

    I took Warhawk's suggestion and made him some pipes for his arms. I also went back and shaded his windows in a different gray with a gradient effect to differentiate that color from his gray pin striping. Car mode pics included as well.

    Thanks for looking!

    Amazing paint work and use of that awesome mold. Your skills are top level. Much better than my touch-up Nightbeat.

    Wow, that paint work really makes this pop! Maybe add some engine details to the hood and pipes to the arms to give him that drag racer feel.

    I actually have a set of Classics Rodimus's shin pipes. I'll add those to his forearms...good call man. I'll have to see what fodder I have for an engine though or I'd add one for sure.

    Thanks guys

    Epic custom. More underutilized characters need love, and I am extremely happy you did this mate.
    btw: your skills with a brush is inspiring.

    I mean, it looks like its just a straight headswap, it doesn't look like he did anything to the body
    Edit: wait, I realized I was in a completely different thread than I thought I was in. nevermind. agreed, would like to see alt pics

    That Alt mode is tight. Needs pipes though! And flames shooting out of them!

    Looks amazing, especially the alt mode!
    And that file isn't IDW, it's from Dreamwave's MTMTE bios.

    Nice work. If it's "IDW style", surely it should be out of marshmallows? ;)
