    Hey guys! Guess I’m a tiny bit late to the dance, but here’s the quickest post I could make: I’m currently home alone with my 2 kids-the 2 year old LOVES my phone and LOVES my Transformers and will go full apeshit to get either. I literally locked myself in my bathroom to take these pix!

    I’ve been planning this for over a month. I had parts swapped and un-pinned waiting for Red Alert to show up. I took a few hours late last night after work to swap everything. Then back to work this morning!

    anyway, parts were swapped from various mold mates: Gen Selects Black Deep Cover, Netflix Blue Deep Cover. Maybe (GASP!) Gigawatt too. But that may have been for the “other” figures…

    Any questions please ask! Thanks!
    The worst pins to remove were the knees and the white hinge piece in the collar area…

    Let’s see. From bottom to top:

    Shins - from Blue Deep Cover. Battle damage removed.

    Thighs- from Black Deep Cover.

    Biceps/Forearms - from Black deep cover, with hands swapped back.

    collar piece - from black deep cover. Not terribly necessary but I wanted the red piece he originally had for my Optimus custom. They were the worst to swap. The piece is nylon and have a 1-way head pin. Had to use my soldering iron in a tight area, with pins that damn near refused to come out.

    Thanks! My Optimus Prime custom has even more parts swapped from the other moldmates. I’ve always enjoyed parts swapping just for the simple fun of mix and matching to see what I get. I’m thinking of doing more for Red Alert with the G2 sideswipe figure to add some red back to him. But I might save that for the Kingdom Sideswipe when he’s released. Unless someone has a Covert Clone G2 sideswipe they want to loan me for parts swapping so I can do both! ;)
