    Didn't see this coming.

    Car mode looks great but something seems off about the robot mode. In fact I'm not sure there's anything about the robot mode that I like more than MP-12 as the square chest never bothered me.

    Car mode does look better though.

    Of course I'd still prefer if they did NEW EFFING CHARACTERS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN COVERED
    What whatever...

    I think the original sideswipe head looks better, other than that I think this looks great.

    I still need a Red Alert, so maybe I should see what the potential remold of this guy looks like before picking up the toon version of MP Red.


    Then again...this possible remold will probably take forever to see the light of day.:confused:

    It's almost as if BC is saying, ok Takara, you bested our Sunsurge. Now we've beaten your Swipe.

    Meh, no thanks. It looks nice and all, but I'm good with the official version.

    That is my main complaint with this. I like that other companies are attempting carbots though. More choice is always appreciated.

    While it makes some improvements over MP Sideswipe+ (assuming it gets that paint finish that is mentioned), I don't think it looks "better enough" to warrant buying another MP Sideswipe. The face in particular is bad.

    Plus there's the risk of "BadCube transformations" which can be pretty hit or miss (usually miss - although I think their latest minibots were excellent).

    I like the way the missile transforms, and I like the narrower chest - but it's not significant enough to make it that much more cartoon accurate.
