    Hmm. Hasbro lost the trademark to Sideswipe?

    Side Swipe again, rather than Sideswipe?

    Interesting.

    "Side Swipe" rather than "Sideswipe" is interesting.

    Tow-Line's the one name I haven't heard in a while, curious to see what that would be used for.

    How did Sideswipe get lost again?

    Armorhide, Rollbar, and Tow-Line are interesting

    Yep, even I was surprised to see "Side Swipe" instead of "Sideswipe". I myself don't see much of a connection to all 4 names, except RID.

    I doubt Sideswipe has been lost. There were at least six Sideswipe toys released just last year. Trademarks can't expire that fast.

    Seeing Side Swipe with a space gives me Armada flashbacks... not good ones, either. Aside from that oddity it seems like pretty standard renewals though, they love Armorhide and Rollbar as generic names for anything they need.

    Maybe Side Swipe will be a Decepticon? Am I wrong or was there a Decepticon Side Swipe during the Armada verse days?

    Nevermind, I was thinking of Wheeljack who should have been named Side Swipe.

    ^Either this guy is right or, calling it, Rollbar + Armourhide = yet another (FOC) Combaticon repaint, RiD edition. Expect Mega-Octane and the other two, soon.

    Ah, Tow-line, that's a name I haven't heard of in a while. Sweet name, so I'm all for it.

    But yeah, the Side Swipe vs. Sideswipe one confuses me. Did Hasbro lose "Sideswipe"?
