    Now that we've seen the final designs for both Sideswipe and Red Alert, which one do you plan on adding to your Masterpiece collection? I'm more of a Sideswipe fan myself, but I love Henkei Red Alert and I'm leaning more towards his character. I'm also wondering how Red Alert's weapons store on vehicle mode when the light bar is in the way. What about you?

    Whatever comes out in North America. I'm fine with either. Though I like Red Alert's sculpt more. And it helps that I like Red Alert as a character more too.

    I went with Sideswipe. Not a big Red Alert fan, so the Masterpiece didn't appeal to me.

    Sideswipe's a near certainty. Depends on whether he gets released stateside or not, because I'm not sure I want to pay the higher import price. Red Alert only if he gets released stateside at some point.

    Both for me. I think both figures look great in their own right and honor the masterpiece line well. I can't wait for them to release.

    I voted Red Alert as I will only one i ordered so far. I can wait for a U.s. released sideswipe as that seams more likely then red alert

    Hopefully hasbro's red alert, but if hasbro releases sideswipe at less than $40 (i.e. not TRU Exclusive) or with another figure, I might get him.

    Although I have reservations concerning cost as opposed to size, I will probably be getting both.

    I want Takara's Red Alert. Especially after seeing the spark attachments that go on his head. Lol.

    I voted "neither," but I'll add the proviso: if it should come to pass I see one of them on a US shelf for a price that I can shell out on impulse, I'll probably end up with one. Very pretty, especially the car mode.

    Can't afford to be all-in on MPs though, and these two characters are low-priority.

    Sideswipe is priority out of the two.

    I don't consider that 'weapons storage' at all frankly, it's just a happy accident that the gun/launcher can use the same roof attachment that RA's light-bar uses. Certainly no bearing on my decision... Which is I gotta get (i.e. can't resist) both!
    Different shoulder piece to better represent the two distinct toon models. Haven't spotted any other differences yet.

    The light bar has it's own peg hole for the weapons.
