    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are boring.

    But hey, I guess outside of the IDW comics, they (or at least their G1 looking selves) haven't really appeared anywhere for a long time, so I don't see why not.

    It's true, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are a little boring and are due for a bit of a re-vamp. If they did appear, I would hope the "twin," spark-sharing aspect would be played up more as something unique. It would also be nice if they were given a bit more of the hard, mercenary edge that their bios described, but that was never really explored in the G1 cartoon. They could be a freelance team of Autobot mercenaries or bounty hunters, ostensibly on the side of "good" but with some questionable loyalties and practices.

    To use other animation examples, I could see them as an Transformer version of Tomax and Xamot, or maybe the two thief brothers in "Tangled."

    Or kill one of them off, and explore the sense of loss the remaining twin goes through with half his spark missing.

    They don't HAVE to be boring, it's all in the execution. :)

    I'd like to see them in the series, I'd like to see them as badasses and I thought if they were done like the twins in animated would have been cool, jokers but had a serious fighting ability. I think there could be alot of cool scenes with them involved and backing each other up as there's no stronger bond than being a brother. They should be included I feel and I never felt they were boring, just not given enough of the spotlight. And NO killing of any other cool characters like Cliffjumper, if someone's gonna be offed, make it arcee or bumblebee

    No I rather have more new characters instead. I rather keep 80's redo characters to a small amount as possible.

    I don't see anything they could add to the show character and plot-wise so no. Never liked their designs too.

    The real problem is that Breakdown and Knockout are kind of biting Sideswipe and Sunstreaker's style right now. They basically are those guys, only evil. So in a way, they did take those characters and make them work in a modern show. They just transplanted those personalities into new characters.

    The next bot I wanna see added would be some sort of flyer. The cons have three well five if you count the one who died and Ratbot/Laser beak. So id love to see Silverbolt introduced.

    I don't see it as so much of a problem. Truth is, I MUCH prefer Breakdown and Knock Out to Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, even in Breakdown's not-quite developed state.

    It's a problem if you want to use them both. Because Breakdown and Knockout are essentially Streaker and Swipe, except evil and written in 2011, not the 1980's.

    I'm sorry but no.

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker never do much for me, maybe as cameos on Cybertron or Wreckers but i don't think i'd want them to be main charecters. There's a lot more charecter worth doing over them like Prowl, Jazz, Ironhide or Ultra Magnus.

    Depends on how they play them. The old cartoon they really had only vague hints of their personalities, so we never got to see them how they were supposed to be done. If they brought them in and really played how they were different, like Riggs and Murtaugh or something like that, where one's the wild one, and one's the anal-retentive, self righteous prick, then yeah, definitely. Otherwise, there's other characters I'd
    rather see

    I say ditch Sunstreaker and make a movie-style Sideswipe with a brand new personality.

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker definately deserve new updates and to be placed in the show, they've cool personalities and can be even better characters if done right, there's no tighter bond than brothers and this can be elaborated on the show.
