    Drenchswipe looks interesting, but I don't really get a Sideswipey feel out of the color scheme (even an evil one). Jazz looks about as good as a Jazz from a Crosswise can. Goldbug looks damn nice to me. the little bits of blue around the deco help tie things together, so the blue head doesn't stick out as badly as it seemed to in the promo images.

    Nice... Sideswipe looks pretty decent. I find it funny that they went with the unreleased Universe deco for that mold, but it actually works. To bad they didn't do Sideswipe's G2 deco.

    You know... I'm begining to find this set more and more interesting... still don't want all the figures, but this is another I'll be adding to my 'to get' list later this year on eBay.

    G2 is a period that I was out of collecting Transformers, so I don't have much nostalgia for color schemes like this. This is at the bottom of my list for this set.

    At first I didn't like Goldbug, but now I think it looks great. Wheeljack is nice too. Can't wait to get this set in my hands.

    The more I see of Sipeswipe/Drench the more I like it. He is definitely in the top of my list to get from this set.

    You know what? I think this is probabaly the only figure I like out of this set, he looks really cool. Although I wish they would have fixed his chest plate.

    Yay for Botcon! Each picture I see of these guys gets me more excited than the one before it. Now I've gone from, Drench=Meh to Wowies I want. I'm so fickle.

    I like this paint scheme better than the unreleased Universe version.

    Huh? That's, like... the best part of this mold! :confused: 

    I admit I'm a bit disappointed in Sideswipe's robot mode colors. I think it's the lighter-colored plastic I'm not liking, mostly because it seems too similar to Wheeljack. I was looking forward to the mold having a dark-colored head this time around, but this seems to follow the same "light helmet, painted black horns" pattern that Wheeljack did.

    Overall it's still a really nice-looking figure, though, and that's a fairly minor nitpick.

    I can't fathom why sideswipe isn't red. I would go to war trying to get 2 or 3 of them, I could not care less about his current deco.

    Goldbug looks decent but the rest really don't seem to work for me.

    Sideswipe should have been red, not this repaint scheme of a G2 nobody. Fail.
