    really wish that back kibble folded up a little bit, but other than that this figure just keeps looking better and better can't wait to find him

    Nice, but honestly, I'm going to stick with the Deluxe. The chest on this version doesn't bother me as much as it used to. It's the huge backpack he has that bothers me enough to pass on this figure all together. He's got almost the entire car just hanging off of his back. It not only looks horrible, it also looks like it'll cause him to be a bit back-heavy, and hard to pose. Also, Epp's proportions seem a bit.... off.... There is one great thing to this figure, the alt-mode, but it's just not enough to make the $30+ cost of the figure worth it. I'd much rather buy a model of the concept car, rather than buy this, and just keeping it in alt-mode. The head sculpt, and it's paint job, is also pretty cool. It's interesting to see that he has sort of a face-plate going on there.

    I agree. Granted, we obviously have more to see of the last two there, but my first impressions of those are better than mine of Sideswipe. The car mode is beautiful, but the bot mode just doesn't have much over the Deluxe. it's probably the last Human Alliance on my list so far.

    I buy Transformers because they TRANSFORM from one mode to another, not because a robot was hiding underneath the whole time and is wearing the entire thing on his back.

    Low budget + already having the deluxe + substandard transformation engineering = Pass.

    Even so I still have no intention of getting Skids and Mudflap as they are such awful characters and ugly designs.

    No kidding, that's the first thing I noticed wile flipping through these, the bug-eye look just looks extremely silly.

    I like what I've seen of almost all of the HA line, so I might go for him simply because I think it still looks neat. I'll get my deluxe Sideswipe fix with the Swerve repaint ^_^

    What's the big deal about a backpack? It might be obvious and giant, but on the other hand I'm just happy to see a Bayformer with some sort of armor. The way the backpack folds and juts out, it looks like it protects the exposed back of a melee fighter in a gunfight, also it protects Epps.
    Of course I'm already sold on the whole damn line because I've always wanted TFs to come with opening doors. Here's hoping some enterprising company makes Diaclone pilots scaled for HA figures.

    Is Epp still a human ??? The Hell...It's like they tore off his arms and legs. Squished his body, knocked out the crotch, put his limbs back on, put him in front of a mirror, and his face was never the same.

    And Sideswipe looks kinda....I dunno...He's ugly..

    What's up with Sideswipes face opening up like that? Seems like an oddly random thing to have in there.
    And yeah, the physicality of the human figures are pretty nuts. I can forgive bad pant aps that result in creepy eyes though, since the figures in general are pretty tiny.

    It's not really a bad figure by any good reason. But I do wish it had more going for it that made it stand out from the deluxe version. Like maybe haveing the arm blades actually fold up into his arms wolverine style. (Which Sideswipe actually did in the film.) That's a gimmic that would have really turned me on to the figure.

    I think the opening head thing is for a battle mask gimmick.

    Yeah, I figure it's basically the answer to the fact BB had his battlemask gimmick. Problem is that this just doesn't really work. Seems like they could have come up with something better then that.

    Kinda makes me wonder now if all the HA figures will have some odd panel or gimmick with thier head?

    I dunno.. he seems really bloated to me. I would say the Deluxe is a much better representation of him IMO. Skip for me.
