    Yeah, the deluxe is infinitely better. But, I guess it IS better for the younger fans.

    Looks like a g2 toy! But at least he truly evokes the character's appearance for the kids.

    Seems to fall short even by FAB standards. Well, I'll be sticking with deluxe Sideswipe.

    Wow, talk about opposite ends of the spectrum (deluxe Sideswipe being the best of its size class and this FAB being the worst).

    Easy pass. I'll go with the deluxe version without a doubt.

    what's sad is the paint on the head looks much better than the paint on the deluxe version UGH

    Deluxe one is still the way to go, now if they made him like the FAB Long Haul then maybe I would've got him

    Looks nice enough. Don't like the FAB Jazz-arms, though.

    Needs an elbow joint. And ball joint shoulders. I think it needs knees too...

    Whatever. I'm getting the Deluxe version anyhow, for like... 25 bucks. xD Yes, "Pre-release."

    No g2 toy looked that bad.



    I wonder what its gimmick is?

    Push a button on his back and his arms flop about, simulating some kind of sword slashing action?

    Mmmm... I do like his head sculpt. Like his chin. The proportions of the bot mode look kind of fun... Maybe get.

    Honestly, for a FAB, it's not bad. It's not a great figure, but that's because it's a FAB!
