    If it weren't for the fact that my 4-year-old--who loves Hot Wheels--would go nuts for these, I'd say the concept is "meh".

    Cool. I don't plan on collecting many of these things, but I have a feeling I'll probably get the Long Haul one, along with pretty much all the other Long Haul toys we get (it's a great design). Looks like this Sideways has the FAB versions deco. I may hold off on the Deluxe version, and wait for the inevitable "Premium" one that'll have the black hood and roof, like most other versions of Sideways we've seen so far.

    So it looks like Sideways does have the black hood, roof, and trunk as seen on the FAB. Hopefully the Takara release of the Deluxe will have the correct paint job.

    These could possibly be the dumbest pieces of TF merchandise ever produced.

    I'll be picking some of those up, especially Landmine. Off screen character love FTW!

    I dunno, ifind these at the scale to be a lot more interesting then most non-transforming robot things like Mighty Mugs, Robot Heroes, Robot Replicas,Etc.

    i think the embossed characters on the bottom are cheesy, but the cars are pretty decent.
    exactly, my son's almost 2 and just started developing an interest in toy cars, so i'll probably get him the ones i think look cool.

    Is it possible he makes it into the movie? Every other character seen here will be in it...

    I think getting the ones that HE THINKS is cool is a better suggestion, rather than pushing your idea of "cool" onto him.

    But that's just me.

    Anyways, I'm getting SideSwipe when he's released. Hopefully in the first wave.

    I wonder if this line contains movie characters only. It would be awesome to see Landmine on screen IMO

    That's laying it on a bit thick with the judmentalism isn't it now? Buying something we think is cool to help shape our children's idea of cool (because let's face it, they imprint on us) is hardly a sign of bad parenting. Take it easy.

    Somebody has some pushy dad issues, hm? :) 

    As for these... I wouldn't buy them for any kids, I know that. Transformer cars that don't transform = epic fail in my mind.

    Could we get pictures of the back of these? Do they have anything that is meaningful on the backs?
