Cool Fact
Sideswipe is one of the few characters to have retained a similar alt mode in all of his incarnations: he has always been a high performance sports car.

 

Because of how slick the Sting Ray concept is, there aren't many painted details and Sideswipe needed relatively little work. I painted the side and exhaust ports black, added mirror glass, and added the mesh over the taillights to match the 1:1 car.

On a personal note, I have to confess that I do not mind the "shell former"-ness of Sideswipe at all. Since I plan to leave him in vehicle mode 99.9% of the time, I appreciate the lack of break lines on the bright silver body.
