    Thanks for the review, Peaugh! much appreciated!
    Looks okay, but looks a bit underwhelming. Its just me, but I bet there are people who will dig him.

    Cheers!

    Caffeine, eh? :) 

    Thanks for the review, and the transformation looks real fun. I'm sure it can be a great toy if was painted right. I'll be getting it.

    I think the proportions of the new DotM Sideswipe are more appealing than Sidearm SS's, but the use of color is a definite neg.

    While he looks cool with that Mech-Tech gun/sword and looks like he's heaps of fun to transform, the only downside about this toy is the colour. Nope, I think I'll stick with my beloved little ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe. I've got enough to ogle about.

    This figure would have been a definite buy with a silver paint job, but for me it's a "wait until I can get it on sale/clearance" item. Then I can paint it myself and have about the same amount of money involved as I would a deluxe at retail price.

    The lack of paint is just lazy. If Sideswipe were blue, red, black, green, purple, or hot pink, he would be painted.

    Mold looks pretty good, but the decision to save 5 cents worth of paint undermines a lot of the work put into it.

    Well done Hasbro!

    LOL at the 4chan rant. If that was because of the caffeine, please drink tea before the next reviews too :D

    When I first saw the preview of the review I thought it was of a prototype ...wow I cant believe they left the figure that color. I have been so underwhelmed by the movie figures. Great review Peaugh.

    Hasbro got to eat. That's why they are not painting it. Crazed fans will sure snap-em anyways... poor fans.
