    Inspired by Takara releasing the + version anime colour Masterpieces, I wanted to fix the issues I have with Siege Sideswipe not feeling like the right character.

    - Matrix Workshop M-02 weapons kit
    - Silver trapezoids on knees
    - Colored triangle on waist
    - Larger headlights
    - Larger Autobot logo with white outline

    Next steps in future:
    - Add 3D printed spoiler for car mode
    - Remove Siege battle damage/dirt

    I always thought the siege colors were too dark. This looks awesome! Also, how did you fix the headlights?

    Swapping in the whiter parts from Red Alert really helps too!

    Here is the car mode - I have a 3D printed spoiler coming in from China so it might be awhile but it will definitely look more like a lambo. The headlights are actually a matte silver
    sticker I cut out from the blank area of an old Transformers sticker sheet.

    I do plan to repaint or remove the Siege battle damage/dirt or swap in parts from the KO version of Siege Sideswipe to test other colors.

    If they ever make a version like this, which I'm counting on, I'm so in. Looks great.
