D'oh! That was easy, thanks!
I was thinking his head looked painted. Your photos do seem to have stepped up a notch for sure, what filter and lens are you using? From the sounds of what Sixo is describing it sounds like a tripod is a necessary piece of gear for taking some great photos (some great advice there Sixo, I'm taking note of it!).
I'm trying to get out of the Diaclone game (more to save space and money, I still very much like them) but I for sure regret and will continue to regret not picking up this guy. I paid the deposit at Kapow but just didn't fulfill it. Maybe I'll pick him up when he goes on sale. I'm justifying not getting him because he looks too similar to Red Alert, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to resist Deep Cover.
I'm certain the head is painted. I compared it to my Tigertrack and it's deifinately glossier and thicker looking. On top of that closing the head for the first tranformation felt a tad hard.
It is painted. Same with the red upper torso/shoulder plate.
Serving super sexy brutality across the galaxy.
How are the KFC hands working for you?
Perfectly. Can't fault them at all. Just great quality and add so much more character to a figure.
My Clampdown landed today and I have to say he's beautiful! Lovely paint, and especially nice to see this on the head and the top of the body. The colours work really well. Mine has a slight imperfection in the right headlight, sadly, but other than that he seems all good.
I like how his unpainted red bits are cast in plastic with metallic flake in it, giving it a nice sheen when the light strikes it just right.
Are they really? Damn that's a nice touch.
Loving this guy!
Great shot! The sparkly plastic is really showing up nicely there.
My review of this chap is now live!

Here's a couple of pics to whet your appetite.
Beautiful! I especially love the one of him standing in front of Red Alert, that one is just stunning, making them look like a proper team. Has yours got a little chip in the paint on the face above his right lip (left as you look at it)? It's very strange, because that's almost identical to the chip in exactly the same place on mine. Fortunately the face is so small in hand that you can't see it. And he's a stunner regardless.
EDIT: Just read your review (nice!) and see you mentioned the mark there. It is indeed identical to the one on mine, so I wonder if a few of them have it, like with Bluestreak's hair lip?
Thanks, ambitron, and glad you enjoyed the review! Yeah, sounds like it's the same mark, which is very weird, particularly as I don't have anything like that on Red Alert. Still, beautiful figure, like you say.
This guy will look amazing next to an eventual Police Sunstreaker repaint. Something about Sideswipe's face mixed with Red Alert's head makes him look kind of 'goofy', but in a good way. Fantastic photos, Sixo.
I've not been able to post much lately but DAMN Sixo! Those shots are some of your best yet! That mid transform shot is especially brilliant! I'm off to read your review now...
Btw, I had no idea he came with newly molded piledrivers! If anyone wants to sell their Clampdown piledrivers off, let me know!
Thanks, Dean! I really appreciate that. Would love to know what you think of the review.
He does indeed come with new piledrivers. I mistakenly thought they were the same as the Sideswipe ones but just painted, but I was corrected on my FB page today, so have amended my review. They're completely different!
Just read it - what a blast! Thorough, warm, enthusiastic, well artiulated, and beautifully illustrated, buddy. You make it hard for me to miss out on the variants, that's for sure! You also have me itching to take new pics, particularly mid-transform shots, but gotta stay focused on work for the next few weeks...
Btw, I love the effort TT put into this guy. From the new piledrivers, the sparkly red plastic, to the painted helmet and collar area, it's good to see there's no slacking
Am I crazy or is the light bar a little different? Is it more forward than Red's?
