    I just bought the walmart exclusive quickdraw sideswipe, he is amazing, but I would like help with the fan "tidbits". I get the rattrap reference, but what about the others and that weird autobot symbol. Thanks.

    He says Sunbro on him. Sunbow created the G1 cartoon, and the toys are manufactured by Hasbro. That's the most I can get.

    But it's not Sunbow, it's "Sunbro", as in Sunstreaker, right?

    04- G1 Sideswipe's japanese ID #
    Autobot symbol- Transtech Autobot symbol
    Axalon Rattraps- Beast Wars
    Lithonian Drive-trains- Lithon was the planet eaten by Unicron at the beginning of the 86' movie.
    Sunbro- Sunbow or Sunstreaker's brother. Two for the price of one!
    Maccadam's- Maccadam's Old Oil House
    And I think his colors homage Go-bots Sideswipe.

    All in all this is a toy all Transformers fans should buy for the sheer number of homages alone.

    That could also be it. I dunno, I'm just guessing. Sunbow and Sunbro sound similar.
