    I thought there was going to be something similar mass released. Judging from the Quickstrike-y colors this is it. He was revealed at Botcon.

    It would suck if this guy was Japan only.

    I will buy this in heart beat. Though is this the one we're getting? That Mech Tech weapon looks snazzy.

    He'll be mass-released here. A number of those off-screen repaints wind up as exclusives in Japan. I remember BBTS and other retailers getting burned by that a few years back.

    But that does look very nice, from what we can see with that rather tiny picture. Good call on using Starscream's Mechtech. Very serpentine looking.

    IIRC, his North American name is "Dark Iron", is it not?

    I thought his name was Dark Iron. Eh, whatever, he still looks awesome. And I highly doubt he's Japan-only if they mentioned him at BotCon.

    And that means 1 less new reveal at SDCC.

    He's supposed to have a new head too, right? If so, was it anything like Quickstrike's headsculpt?

    You know, something in me (probably the BW fan part) thinks that it won't be too hard to double dip on this mold. Especially given how much I already like Sideswipe.

    I made the best decision ever in holding out for this repaint.

    Why is it that most of the Sideswipe repaints are awesome? Sometimes completely eclipsing the original deco.

    Not hard when the original deco is monochrome silver/grey.

    Amazing. The DOTM deluxe Sideswipe looks so damn good with paint apps on it.

    Is there a reason he couldn't be named Quickstrike? I will get this but still would like a Sunstreaker.
