    "Decepticon that appeared in the fourth movie "Transformer / Lost Age", a perfect deformation figure of "Crankcase". Vehicle mode is Chevrolet Saba - Van. The robot mode characterized by the four eyes and the dread hair is an atmosphere closer to a beast than a robot, and there are many TF fans who are sneaking in this design"

    Wow Takara messed up Barricades legs, that’s normally Hasbro job. Joking aside all the new molds look pretty good in this wave.

    Great, another Dread to clog the pegs with. As if there aren't enough around already.

    I wanted to like that BB when it was first announced, but it's becoming less and less appealing now. That massive backpack is a killer.

    Barricade will be bought on site (for my girlfriend).

    Sideswipe... Meh. I like the Sidearm version better. May not be screen accurate, but it's a good figure.

    Even Takara wouldn't repaint berserker into crankcase.

    Pretty sure Sidearm is, other than the red paint, *more* accurate than this version, and by a significant amount. Only thing it's missing is the arm blades.

    Barricade and Sideswipe look good. But in Sideswipe's case, I hope you can remove the blades.

    Y'know, if they didn't want to use entirely new engineering, Barricade would make a nice base for a SS Sideways.

    Why is Sideswipe wearing boxer shorts?

    I really question the use of certain plastic colors on Sideswipe. It's so unfortunate because he does look pretty decent. Just all of that drab gray plastic just kills any enthusiasm I would have. I don't know what the molds look like so many this is the most cost effective way to do it but it just looks bad

    Yesterday I was at the store and saw my first in person view of SS Jazz. His paint apps put this Sideswipe to shame.

    Cut off the gold dreads
    Swap the hands
    Swap head with Berserker

    Thats all it needs to make crankcase look right.

    Crankcase still looks disappointing. Damn.

    Looks like Sideswipe\'s crotch is photoshopped white for some reason and I really hope his blades are detachable.

    WWII BB might as well be a pretender.
