    So there I was at the local Car Boot Sale over here in the UK when I saw this little fella.

    Sorry for the rubbish photos, they were taken on my Mobile Phone.

    He is a cream colour with added blue paint on the underside, with blacked out windows.

    50p he cost me.

    But who is he?

    I know he is a Decepticon and Im guessing he is a G1 of Sideswipe but i may be wrong.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    Thanks

    He's a stunticon for sure. He's got the standard combiner limb head and the fold in wheels/legs typical of Dead End and I guess Breakdown.

    I need to start going to boot sales, I wonder how many are in the Glasgow area.....

    Yup.
    Quick Google search, my friend. That's how I found some of mine. I discovered a new one today while on the way home from another one. :p  Once you go you'll wonder why you hadn't earlier. Yesterday I picked up four G1 3D transforming jigsaws for only a few quid. :)

    You just contradicted yourself in a mind-numbing way.

    But yeah, he seems to be a breakdown figure with the red stripe missing.
    And yeah, they were in the old toons, starting with the two-parter "The key to Vector Sigma".
