    Released this week in Australia, in Canadian packaging for some unknown reason.

    Has heaps of sounds and phrases, activated by pressing the Autobot Symbol on the chest and rolling it on its wheel-feet (actually, just the left one activates the sounds).

    The wheel-feet make it impossible to stand on its own though, which I think is odd (all other wheel-feet bots seem to have something to help them stand on their own).

    YouTube - Transformers Powerbot Sideswipe

    And yes, that is a (fake) Australian accent to Sideswipe. I didn't think he sounded like that in the movie, although, the toy says more than the character did in the movie.

    The clone Troopers always just sound exactly like Cybertron Jetfire for me anyway.

    The Clone Troopers accents are supposed to be Maori New Zealanders, like Temuera Morrison, the originator of the role. New Zealand accents are a bit different to Australian accents.


    This Sideswipe toy doesn't really sound that much like the modern broad Australian accent, at least to my ear.

    The release of this toy was not the news being posted (hence the title of this topic). A recording of the toy's gimmick was news, because as far as I could tell, no one had posted a recording yet.

    What large wheels he has.
    I hate Powerbots, but I find that I hate this more than any of them.
    Well, except Devastator, but technically he's a MegaPowerBot.
    There's a difference ya' know.

    Oh, I get it now! Sideswipe was captured by Dreadnoks and reprogrammed by Zartan to work for Cobra! They altered his voicebox so he could sport a similar fake Australian accent. He's almost in Joe scale, come to think of it. Crap, I may have just given myself the excuse I needed to pick this dumb thing up.
