    oooo.. gotta try and read that bio.. gimme a sec.

    "Sideswipe was built to fight. He is sleek, fast, and accomplished in battle. Focusing on his enemies with absolute attention. His blades are a shining blur as he leaps through the air, twisting to avoid enemy fire. Converting to his vehicle to drive at blazing speed, he uses every trick in the book to get close to his opponent, and put his powerful swords to work."

    This is as close as I could get. It seems right. Hopefully that's a big hint about what kind of action we will see him performing in the movie.

    Yeah that bio sounds nifty, hopefully we get to see plenty of him putting his skills to use on screen.

    I think that Sideswipe will be like the movie Jazz character we never had :D 
    I love the sounds of his bio too.

    Nah, he'd be blue. All the names reflect the designs of the movie characters, like Bumblebee having "wings" and being yellow with black stripes, Ironhide being tough and dense looking, Sideswipe having the wheel feet and swords that look specifically designed for him to SWIPE people as he shoots past beSIDE them in battle.

    Yeah, from his bio sounds like he will be agile and jumping all over the place. Should make for some great action sequences.

    Definitely one of my buys, along with Prime, Soundwave, and Screamer. Hearing this bio, if they include Wreckage in the movie (doubt it, but one can hope :D ), he'll definitely give him a run for his money. EPIC SWORD FIGHT ANYONE?

    I love this guy already. The toy I mean.
    I still feel "Sideswipe" is still Bay saying "Look guyz, Iz can luv G1 2" while picking a character so obscure in G1 that he can pretty much do whatever he wants with him in the film.
    I think this mold would have better suited a movieverse Wheeljack.
    I also think if it truly is Sideswipe, we should have got his brother Mr Streaker as well.

    But we shall wait and see regardless

    Like I said before, I think Sideswipe fits pretty well. I wouldn't call him obscure, though, since Sideswipe is pretty well know and highly regarded by many. (even though he's never really done anything)

    While I really like the design, that bio sounds so lame.

    Man thanks for typing that out I'm glad I don't have to squint to see what it says. Sounds pretty exciting!

    Doubt they'd end up using him also remember that he's pretty much Silverstreak in Hasbro's eyes now anyway. When was the last time they called him Bluestreak?
