YouTube - Takara version SIDEARM SIDESWIPE
Not posting your Kup review?
You forgot to rotate the foregrips/knuckle guards/whatever out of the front of the guns (easy thing to overlook, mind you).
Thanks for showing off the feet, though. The instructions don't bother to get into that, which is a shame, because I've ran into so many people who don't realize you can do that, for screen greater accuracy.
It's great to have a Sideswipe that actually stands stably, unlike the first version. And the new transformation is such a unique and enjoyable experience (sticky head aside. I actually had to swap the head from my Takara version with the Hasbro version, the Takara one getting brutally snagged in the works for some reason).
I still want this one..I like the look, I like the guns. And I'm glad this version doesn't have the red flames - which look ok in robot mode, but are horrible in vehicle mode.
Still, with so many hot new toys coming out, I'm afraid I'm going to have to let this one go for now.
I'm posting that one over on ToyNova as an exclusive there for a day or so, I'll post Kup here later tonight probably.
Ah, cool, thanks!
Wow looks so much better without that strange red "Tattoo" at the front of the car.
And yes a red Full repaint would really look awesome.
Too bad Hasbro didn't give us THIS version.
Thanks for the review, this version of Sideswipe looks great, but at this point, I'm going to hope that the TF3 line gives me the version of the character that I really want (screen-accurate paintjob, stable feet, and swords)
TF3's Sideswipe is a different Corvette, though, with a different front end, and is a convertible.
I actually prefer the Hasbro version's splashes of color. In robot mode, they're very well placed.
