    As I've argued before, I see no real importance hinging on what the corvette should be called. Sideswipe is as good a name as any other, it seems to me. I just hope he'll be cool, is all.

    Judging by the mess that Frenzy turned into, I have very low expectations for Ravage in the film.

    If that is Sideswipe, then who are the twins? Topspin & Twintwist?

    Sweet, finally a bot has been named officially. =D

    Sideswipe works for me with him. Though now it makes the entire 'twins' debate head scratching again.

    Ravage is another badass idea, though kinda expected.

    Devastator being a supreme when combined is just epic awesomeness. Pics need to surface like soon, so I can start clearing off a place for him to go. =D

    Ravage will actually be a kangaroo instead.

    Sideswipe, nice. The name fits the design, since he's got the big swords and the roller feet.

    Supreme Devastator? Too big for me. I would've prefered a Leader-sized one but since he is supposed to be seven robots I guess it's okay. I couldn't imagine him being anything else but for display, though, which is kinda dissapointing.

    I wonder if Devastator will be sold as a Supreme toy that separates into 7 vehicles... That would make more sense, since combiner limbs generally don't sell as well.

    Why do I get the feel that Ravage is that thing that was clawing at the windshield in one of the pics from the set?

    I don't mind Sideswipe at all, in fact this is awesome news if it's true, but... he should be a Lambo. :(

    Man, I hope so. I don't want to have to hunt down seven figures (and end up paying far more than $45 to complete Devy).

    I'm cool with the Corvette being Sideswipe. It suits him far more than one of the hatchbacks and/or half an ice cream truck.

    I can say I never saw that coming, but sideswipe without the streaker? Maybe the streaker is also in the movie, or we get a glimpse of him.

    I'm thinking we already saw Ravage, we had pics of some robot puppet attacking Shia on set, right?

    As for Prime, that was what I expected, new sculpt completely which should turn out great since they've had plenty of time to know what he'll look like this time.

    And Devastator... that's just awesome.
