    Oh man, I've seen Sidearm Sideswipe up close, and he's good, but the red on the front was detracting. This color is really good. But, I wish someone would just wipe the color "Allspark Blue" from Hasbro's creating computers. That color has GOT to go. I much prefer the original gray of the guns, but this would be a chance for me to get him later on, whenever Walmart decides to have stuff in stock other than Activators.

    No problem! (That shout-out totally made my day, lol.)

    I'll be picking this guy up if not just for all the homages. Shame the 'bot mode has all that ugly grey, but the vehicle mode makes up for it.

    >true fan

    I thought we all pretty much unanimously agreed that was a term that needs to stop being used.

    Never seen a Le Mans race car before? :thumb 

    Lemans cars - Google Search

    I....FUCKING LOVE this repaint. It hearkens back to my younger years when I was a race car fan. This car really looks the part. With a spoiler it could very well be a Le Mans GT class racer. That's probably what I'll call it. "Le Mans Sideswipe."

    I'm pulling the guns from the less worthy "Rebel Alliance" Sidearm Sideswipe and giving them to Le Mans Sideswipe.

    I've seen and heard some people come down on this figure, but I honestly dig him. I was into it even before I found out about all the homage bits.

    The blue guns do bug me a bit, though. But I can live with them.

    That'll happen when we have true equality in this fandom. Which will probably be just short of never.

    We = the Transfandom as a whole.

    Ask anybody on this forum if "true fan" is a horribly outdated and useless term.
