    I was at my local Kmart today and ran across this Human Alliance Flash Freeze Assault pack! It includes a large size repainted Sideswipe, as well as a repainted Icepick w/Sergeant Chaos. The retail on this is $29.99! It's a very nice looking set!!!

    The sticker should also say "This Sideswipe is also a piece of crap. Buy the Deluxe version and save yourself ten bucks." :p

    Sideswipe reminds me of a pair of Air Max 95s.






    FAIL.

    SON OF A BITCH....

    Y'know...The car mode is actually not bad looking...I was actually getting interested..

    And then I see the bot mode with that HORRIBLE blue and green...and ORANGE on a snomobile...WTF?!? is that guy wearing hunter orage so he dont get shot by hunters??

    This has got to rank up in the top 5 for worst repaints ever.

    They do it to themselves. There is NO reason to offer a product that is THAT ugly. I have a hard time believeing ANYONE would say "wow...those orange skis look sooo cool"...or "those Blue parts on sideswipe go GREAT with the green.." They should have went with the Walmart blue side arm paint scheme at least. this ones kinda inexcusable

    This will be sitting at kmart nest to that other BB exclusive set...for a loooooong time..

    I think it's OK - but I prefer the Black one that came with Mikaela Banes with a Pony tail..

    Isn't this the first and only time a Human Alliance basic toy has been sold with a larger HA Human figure - or is the one in the other 2 pack (the deluxe bumblebee) the bigger size too ?

    What a pity they didn't do something like Tuner Mudflap instead (no i'm not joking HA Mudflap is hard to get and he's one of the best HA moulds too.

    Nice Snowcat homage. Not worth the purchase price just for that though. If it hits clearance, then we'll talk.

    What is the point of releasing the set when the bigger robot cannot hold the weapon?
    Why does Hasbro purposely photoshop ICEPICK in weapon mode on Sideswipe?
    I guessed it tricks the kids and adults who cannot read the labels but not me.

    The price isn't bad at least.
    The "Sideswipe cannot hold weapon" sticker cracks me up. If you read my entire post, I'll give you $50!

    OK, so why in the crap did Hasbro give K-Mart two seemingly similiar exclusive HA packs but make one of them actual HA size and the other deluxe size? As much as both of these packs kind of suck, I still would have preferred to have Bumblebee in his proper HA scale and paid $29.99 for it. The obsessive compulsive HA completist voices in my head tell me to buy both anyway.
