I held off on buying anything from the Movie line for a long time, and the first one I ended up buying? DOTM Sideswipe... didn't work out so well. I chose Sideswipe over Bumblebee and Road Buster because I had Sunstreaker (yellow) and Smokescreen (race car) from the Classics Universe line so I wanted something different. And I thought Sideswipe is a cool character. I should have noticed how cheesy his vehicle mode looked. The plastic feels cheap and the dull lack of paint really makes the vehicle look bleh. The transformation lines (especially the blades) also make the car look like it's falling apart. The ironic thing is, I like his robot mode, even though the lack of paint problem persists. But the sculpt is good and the wheeled feet is a nice touch. Funny thing is that this is the only toy from the movie line I paid full price for. I got voyager Defender Optimus Prime from the ROTF line for less at Toys R Us. I even got the normally expensive Generations toys for less than SS. Live and learn I guess.
