I have not read news about it.
Yes, in Wave 2
Yeah, he's a wave 2 figure. Why is it that suddenly not hearing anything after the initial release and not seeing a prototype seems to equal cancelation recently? I mean, this kind of speculation has been going on for months with Animated Blitzwing and now we're going to start on Universe Sideswipe? Seriously people... have a little patience... if Hasbro doesn't show it off at Botcon than I might worry... but not much as these guys could be a bit of a way away still...
Please do not post questions in the news forum, Thanks.
Seeing as how Sunstreaker was designed around the idea of being able to get a Sideswipe re-deco from him, I'd say it's pretty damned likely we'll get him.
There was concept art for one last Botcon, and we were told that some of the molds for Universe were being picked for repaint possibility. Sideswipe was one of those. Prowl was another. It'll happen.
Not sure what wave he'll be in as of yet (we only know what the first wave will be so far), but he's definetly going to be released. Personally, I'm hoping that they then take Sideswipe and remold/repaint him as Red Alert (the only remolding needed would be to add a light bar). Hopefully that and both Prowl's obvious repaint/remold options are utilized.
That's what someone had said about items like Concept Camaro Bumble Bee some time ago. It would only be a couple more weeks before market saturation, it was figured. Several months later, well...
Then there's the severe delay of Animated toys not coinciding with the cartoon it's concerning.
When dealing with Hasbro, both children and collector's need a bit more than a little patience.
I'm hoping that as well. A head remold to look a little closer to the cartoon would be the icing on the cake but not needed. It would be three releases of the mold to get in some more money, just like the Prowl mold would be.
Depends on where you were at. While definitely not a shelfwarmer, BBs were everywhere here last fall.
Yes but we've known all along (or at least for a few months now) that Animated toys wouldnt be out until June and the Classics 2/Universe aren't due out until even later. To expect to see more than the first wave at this point is a little presumptuous, imo.
I have trouble telling the car robots apart in Classics 2.0. They all seem sort of underwhelming compared to the 1.0's.
Sideswipe should be made, if not at a Botxon we could see him in a few nonths from now, like Cliffjumper and Skywarp but two bad for Thundercracker. T_T
You realize there's only Prowl and Sunstreaker right?
