    Sideswipe and Long Haul. It's not G1, it's G2. Mistransformed toy accurate third-party art RULES!

    EDIT: I type slow. But not as slow as the third guy! I'm juuust right. The porridge that Goldilocks chose.

    I got that G2 card, its actually pretty hard to find. Apparently you could only get it through Wal-Mart in their kids meals. I would like to get that book as well. Some day it will be mine! :lol

    If I remember correctly, because it was third party, no one from the series was voiced in the tape.

    Man, looking at the pictures really brought me some memories. Although majority of the G2 toys' colours were er, "colourful", G2 Sideswipe's was really sleek - being black and all.
