    Due to all kids of reasons I didn’t work on any heavy customs after Minor/Repaint: - Generations Style AOE Sentries + Team
    but I did work on a few minor customs to expand my chug movie-inspired characters, with 2 out of the 3 mostly just toyhaxed (but has some interesting things going on), so I figured I can show them together.

    Sideswipe is clearly the star of the show here. I have been wanting to do something like this the moment they released the NF Clampdown and me noticing the entire car was molded out of grey plastic and painted over. I had a clampdown but never really got working on it as it would require disassembly and paint stripping. The upside would obviously be increased playability than a siege sideswipe repainted silver. The final result required complete disassembly and soaking parts in 90% alcohol and cleaning with brushes. The first attempt failed dramatically as I underestimated the effect of alcohol on clear plastic, so a second loose clampdown was bought and it turned out successful. It did require some help from toyhax for some additional flare. IMG_2725.jpeg IMG_2726.jpeg IMG_2727.jpeg IMG_2729.jpeg IMG_2728.jpeg

    the vehicle mode has the ability of having all his weapons attached on the side, I consider this as a reference to the battlecar mode in dotm. IMG_2743.jpeg

    In robot mode the blades (from cw skylinx obviously) can attach to the back to give a rough semblance of bayverse Sideswipe’s cape thingys. They can also go on the arms. IMG_2744.jpeg IMG_2745.jpeg IMG_2746.jpeg IMG_2748.jpeg IMG_2750.jpeg

    I showcased a half-finished AOE inspired bumblebee from SG goldbug when I showed Stinger Minor/Repaint: - Generations style AOE Stinger (KSI member 02)
    Here it’s more complete with proper window stickers and a custom decal for license plate. Apart from the repainted head it is extremely simple. The shoulder cannons are from human alliance bumblebee which slot into the openings on the backpack tabs. IMG_2738.jpeg IMG_2740.jpeg IMG_2759.jpeg IMG_2760.jpeg

    obviously Charlie wasn’t around in the AOE continuity but in my reimagining she is.

    Finally we have Wheeljack. I considered doing a version of Que from Slicer but after rotb I had other ideas on how I want to do Que. So I decided I just want a looking Wheeljack that’s Prime and BBM inspired. A selective amount of Toyhax and the Netflix wheeljack was the perfect combination and all I had to do on top was to give him the detonators, swords and the go better spoiler as its prime inspired. Another surprising thing is how great the Deadend wheels look on a scuffed up Wheeljack. IMG_2731.jpeg IMG_2732.jpeg IMG_2733.jpeg IMG_2752.jpeg

    I also like how you can put the detonators on the rear of the car as some mad max interceptor gas tanks. IMG_2734.jpeg IMG_2735.jpeg

    As a side note, I threw a spare Wheeljack head on the mainline version of the rotb wheeljack and created this abomination. Now he is my version of generations Que. IMG_0932.jpeg IMG_0935.jpeg IMG_0936.jpeg
