    He does have a new head. Refer to the photo at the top of the instructions. The instructions themselves are of Sunstreaker. The roof becomes the chest, not the hood. :lol

    He has a new head, and you can put his gun on the hole in his shoulder.

    you can also fold the engine over the gun to make it bulkier and more 'launcher-esque'

    The instructions for sideswipe shows sunstreakers transformation, but the picture on top shows sideswipe the way he should be, with the front of the car as the robot chest area, not the car roof/window as his chest area. Hope he is red. J/K. I wish the engine and his weapon were chromed, I don't want to pay more for the Henkei version.

    Expect Red Alert to be a Botcon exclusive.

    I'm expecting a humorous quote on the TF Wiki about Sideswipe transforming into Sunstreaker. Don't let me down, Willis.

    The picture isn't accurate.

    They didn't snap his chest in properly, which is why he looks so awkward.

    I checked with my Sunstreaker and that is indeed the case - I can replicate the crappiness of the pic.

    I really hope Hasbro catches that mistake and fixes Sideswipe's instructions.

    Look at the disclaimer at the bottom of each figures instructions. It says some parts are made to detach, haha in other words we didn't wanna put forth the effort in tweaking the ball joints so we put this disclaimer in instead. I'll still get them but that's so wrong.

    HAY! There's about ten other regular contributors, all of whom write equally poor captions that of dubious entertainment value.

    I doubt it. Asking Hasbro to fix instructions is like asking them to tell their photography studio to give a damn when taking stock photographs.

    Impossible.
