    Wideload? Odd name, but I can dig it. :)

    Interesting repaints. Night Blades Sideswipe seems to have a darker color scheme with some additional green paint apps. I have no interest in the FAB mold of him, so I definitely won't be getting that. The in-package picture of Wideload just makes him look worse than he already does (though the lighting could be affecting it). I can't see myself getting him either. The yellow is just too pale, imo. I like the name, but the color scheme just doesn't work for me.

    Wow, that was fast. It's only been like a day since Butterbar was revealed, and now we have an in-box pic.

    Cool. I haven't gotten Rollbar yet. They might make a cool twin team.

    I still want to see someone do a custom of this guy as a UPS or FEDEX truck.

    I still cannot get over Wideload's terrible, terrible color scheme. I honestly, non-hyperbolically, think it may be one of the worst TF color schemes ever. G2 was at least "clashy but eye-catching"; this is "clashy but bland". It's just really off-putting.

    It's a shame, because I like this little mold. But so far neither paint job has done it justice.

    If the head was painted to match Wideload's color scheme, I'd probaly pick it up. But with it still being blue, a semi-easy pass.

    im not shure about this dude. but that black repaint of depth charge looks bitchen. might get this dude though. i havent gotten the rollbar mold yet and this color sceme is slightly more appealing.

    For the toy or just as a Transformers name in general?

    I'd rather get Wideload than Rollbar. Rollbar's color scheme was very bland. Wideload's may be bad but it is still more interesting than Rollbar's. If I had to get one of the two, it would be Wideload.

    His name is Sonar.

    I can't tell is Night Blades Sideswipe has a substantially different color scheme or not due to the flash & lighting. If he's a very dark grayish black, or if he has some REALLY neat deco in vehicle mode, I'll consider it worth a second purchase, but if he's the same but with a few new bright green paint apps I'll be passing.

    In package pics of a toy we just barely knew exsisted? Awesome.

    I hope that means Breakdown won't be far along.

    Wideload=yes. Sideswipe=pass. I'm calling an FAB Prime repaint as one of the next things to come out.

    Agreed. A little more custom detail and I can make Wideload look good.

    Should've made him a G1 homage, and all orange with blue on him. :) 

    But this repaint is not that great. I want to see some more original, awesome, scout molds!
