Overcompensating much, are we, Sideswipe?...

Weird that he comes packaged with the Path Blaster, and it seems too bloody big for him [probably works better with Voyager figures, of which we have... ah. /facepalm], but after some finagling, he looks ok holding like a minigun...

Quick and dirty, and in fifteen minutes:
- one pink marker for some grill detailing on the front, back, sides of his chest, wheels, and the taillights. Some on the gun.
- one silver marker for the side engine detailing, knees, and some grill/vent detailing. Again, some on the gun.
- grey marker, for some grill detailing. alternately you could just do ALL that detailing in pink, to be honest, so this is completely optional.
- gloss top-coat.

... I STILL don't like the Jazz/Sides mold too much?... it still feels a little awkward and chesty, but it feels... better for Sides. His head is TONS more expressive, and the red plastic doesn't feel QUITE as **** as the pearl white that Jazz had, so... yeah.

Forget about game accuracy though. You don't even need to stare at pics to compare em to know that Sides looks WAY different from his in-game model... but at least this looks decent. Even before any touch-ups.

... now for Takara to come up with their nicely-painted Sides...
