    Hi there people of TFW2005, I have a question which is stated in the topic name. I really like the sideswipe toy, but at an around $20 price tag on amazon, is he worth it?

    Hells yeah! Alone, he's pretty cool, but with his Yellow brother, they both become awesome! One of Hasbro's better ideas in the past year or so.

    Yes, he's worth it. If "it" was your immortal soul, he'd be worth it. Buy him. Buy him now.

    But not the Henkei one.

    Yes, of course Universe Sideswipe is worth it. Even more so if you have/get Universe Sunstreaker to go with him.

    It's a great toy, but I wouldn't be surprised if you can find it somewhere else for less than $20. Worth getting, but look for a better price.

    Chief:

    Whether it's worth secondary-market prices is up to you, but Sideswipe compares well with other similarly-priced toys...and frankly, any Transformer has more play value than most similarly-priced action figures!

    Of course, it's also Sideswipe, and is therefore awesome by archetype. In fact, Sideswipe is the reason for Universe. Yes.
