    ... Seems like I've bought a lotta DOTM Sideswipes...
    This particular one had some QC issues... wouldn't really close up all the way in vehicle mode for some reason no matter what I tried, so...
    Decided to try putting on a G1-esque color scheme [with some design liberties] to see how it works on the mold.
    I think it turned out ok?...

    now that is lovely... but it got me wondering,does the revenge of the fallen swerve head fit on this version of the sideswipe mold?

    ... no idea. it might, but I don't really think I wanna try.
    ... besides, it means I need to give that swerve head the once over too, and it always looked more like Ironhide to me... or mebbe even... Warpath?... /shrugs

    Thanx man. ;)

    Thanx guys. XD
    ... only problem is that now my Sunstreaker mod of Sidearm Sides looks... a bit inadequate in comparison. /facepalm... wonder if I should redo it...
