    I'm still on the fence about these guys. I like Sunstreaker alot but, I'm still debating on Sideswipe......when I look at the offical pics of him online and on the packages it looks to me like his face could've been molded alot better. The pics make him look like he has a Trypticon-sized honker (nose) on his face.

    Maybe the offical pics are just bad.......either way PLEASE post your best out of package pics of Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. Especially Sideswipe.....I need someone to sell me on this figure.

    Thanks!!

    I had the same thoughts, Sideswipes nose looks kinda funky in pics (I thought the ear things did too)... But after buying, turns out its not that bad, and I like the head mold now (for some reason he looks kinda like Stallone in his early days!).

    That's hilarious!!! Now that I look at it the Hasbro pics, they do make him look like Stallone. I was thinking Gonzo from the muppets but, the pics look more like Sly. Should I call heim Sylvester Sideswipe or Sideswipe Stallone?

    Any pics of the Lambo brothers will be much appreciated!! Especially pics of Sideswipe with closeups of his face. THANKS!!

    They're both good. And with Walmart selling deluxes for $7.77, it's not a bad investment.

    man, I *love* the art on the front of those henkei boxes. Just outstanding. Cute yet badass at the same time.

    Twin-bots don't like being seperated. If you only get one the other will be lonely for his brother. :wink: 

    Seriously, these two look great together and Sideswipe's face looks fine in person. He even has light piping for his eyes which Sunny doesn't.

    I may even get Henkei's of these two eventually as well, just because I love the mould so much. That is some bad-aft box art.

    I think you meant to say TACKY chrome. But that's just my take on the Henkei.

    Just get them, my friend. You will not be disappointed! The brothers look outstanding displayed together, and they are fun toys to pose and transform to boot!

    Don't have any pics handy, but I highly recommend them. Sidewsipe's nose isn't nearly as large as you think it is.

    DAYUM! I like how ya got Rodimus' cannon on Sideswipe, now that looks alot better than the gun he came with, and a bit more accurate. I'll be displaying mine like that from now on, Thanks!

    OP, stop contemplating!!! get the Bro's, they're AWESOME!!! :D

    I actually like the chrome placemnt on the Henkeis, at least on Sunstreaker.
    Although I just noticed from those pics - does Henkei Sideswipe actually come without the intake?

    But yes, brilliant figs. I have four Sunstreakers so far, all being modded to one degree or another (for personal preference, rather than necessity), and they won't be the last.
