    I figured we need this guy in G2 colors and wanted to go away from the glossy look and keep him closer to the flatter colors of the regular siege sideswipe. I used the original G2 colors to detail the weapons as well.

    For some reason, the feet on both of mine were loose and the nubs didn't hold on and they'd fall out. I ended up drilling a hole and running a pin through them so that the feet wouldn't have that issue.

    Excellent work! I like how the accents on the weapons match the accents in his alt-mode.

    I cancelled my preorder for the original (as I've got the Classics version), but I'd get it in these colours in a jiffy. The neon colours and black just suit the 80's futuristic styling of the car. I suspect his radio has a dot matrix screen and only plays synthwave music.

    Any plans on adding a G2 symbol?

    That pin thing is what Hasbro should have done from the start.

    Also, interesting repurposing of Storm Shot’s gun.

    Now that's awesome! The green highlights really make the alt mode pop.

    thanks, i actually studied the MP for this, this is why I went with the clear red for the windshield as opposed to just leaving it.

    Yup. That's what he looks like, alright! Nice paint work.

    (Love the use of that two-part rifle for the G2 Yaniger-Cannon.)

    @amd098 This is truly beautiful work! Would you consider a commission for a Deep Cover version of Siege Sideswipe?
