    just picked him up because i thought the deco was cool, and i never got sidearm sideswipe...

    i had no idea it was so different from the original rotf figure! i thought sidearm sideswipe was the original rotf mold with some extra guns and red paint...really happy with this mold!

    I really like this figure (a Sainsbury exclusive in the UK) - good fun and looks great!

    When Sidearm Sideswipe came out, I, too, thought he was just a remold of the original until I realized how different his robot mode looked. I think the Sidearm mold is fantastic, and hope it gets repainted more. I'd really love a repaint of it in the colors of the HFTD repaint of HA Sideswipe (black with silver stripes and accents).

    Yup, it doesn't seem to affect the yellow on 'em. God, he's a sweet fig, but I'm renaming him, still figuring it out.

    I've been tempted to get this (and I may yet), but I've already got both Hasbro and takara's versions of the original. Not really sure I can justify a 3rd.

    It's a fantastic mold. Takara's version is easily the most screen accurate version of Sideswipe we've yet had. I've been meaning to make him some swords as well. I just haven't yet.

    Ever since I got the Walmart one, I've been craving Takara's RotF one, it's such a nice mold, and I don't want Hasbro's red thing they got goin' on.
