    So... I made a comment on Peaugh's review...

    ‪TCC 2011 Free Club Figure SIDEBURN‬‏ - YouTube

    Look at his response...

    Considering he's been sponsored to do a few reviews for KO Toys... and he posts here... I figured this is a rumor to take notice of...

    How does one report a rumor normally? Make a new thread, post in a related thread? Does it make a difference? heh...

    Oh... and I have to admit... this repaint done by I think digitalworld40 on the forums does look sweet:

    Soon as SC's started selling for 3, 4, and 500 +, I thought it was obvious the mold would get jacked. Blue would be just as needless to say, imo.

    Isnt the quality for the ko protector a bit lacking (if i recall, could be thinking of commander)? I hope fp puts out a blue one.

    I really couldn't care less about Sideburn/Speedbreaker getting a Blue Protector kit but that's just me. ;)

    I want a clear blue set to make clear sideburn prime matrix edition. Then I want... hmm... green protectimus, since its my favorite color = ). After that they can do the rest of the rainbow colors, I wont care.

    Eh. I'd like FP to make a blue recolor. To me, it's just cool to have such awesome armor for it. It doesn't matter if it's "appropriate" to the character. There are some people that can't move beyond the original story, and want characters to stay the same forever, and I get that.

    I think what would be cool is if FP made a head that looked like the original Sideburn with the armor in super mode.... That would make a lot of sense.

    With a new head and maybe other slight differences, I think I could get on board with that. Could be kinda cool to be able to armor up sideburn into a total badass. Id definitely want some other/more RID homages too then... would feel weird just having a beefcake sideburn all by his lonesome;;

    When ppl say the quality sucked, they just mean shoulder pieces/hand pieces fit very loosely, or to the point they didnt stay on by themselves at all. Other than that, the quality was actually very good, plastic, paint, molding, etc. They were actually pretty spot on to naked eyes, needed to get up close and personal to see the differences. Were many remedies to solve those loose limb probs too

    That was one of the reason why I didn't want "Sideburn Armor." Having him in that mode would make the remaining Car Bros look out of place.

    My thoughts & you boys don't have to agree. :D

    The KO protector/scyther will happen.... KOtoys reported someone was working on it. Non-FP based repaints however are just fan wishes for now. I could see FP s doing a clear/blue set designed for either sideburn or ehobby matrix glow rodimus

    Dear 3P/KO companies,

    Please start developing some way or another to bring us classics repaints of prowl and xb too. Then develop badass armors/weapons to accompany the surely inevitable blue protector sets coming out.

    Lusiously yours,

    If KOToys does a blue repaint for Sideburn, I'd prefer a bright red set to match BIS Hot Rod.
