ROTF FAB Sideways
Why is the deluxe all silver and this one has black?
maybe children like colorful toys
The black on this guy has me confused and scream of the Barricade rumor.
Either way I am none to fathomed. I doubt I would be tempted to pick up A FAB toy not even considering this character
Not bad for a FAB. I'm beginning to think that the Deluxe Sidways is missing some black paint apps. With this version having black on it, the RH being pretty much all black, and the concept art we got a while back having some black on it, I'm thinking that his hood and roof are actually supposed to be black like that. It's also weird that this one has blue windows instead of the red/pink of the Deluxe version.
I would've loved movie Sideways to actually have a two toned black/silver look. It makes it look alot more evil
update robot mode
So Deluxe Sideways is silver with black stripes on the sides, Robot Heroes Sideways is all black, and FAB Sideways is silver with black on the hood and roof.
MAKE UP YOUR MIND, HASBRO!!!!!!!!!!!!
You're right. The prop car seen in the Walmart video (though it's difficult to see) and the CGI car seen in the currently available trailers appears to have a dark grey/black looking trunk lid? and roof (R8 is a mid-engine sports car).
that guys is ugly.
Fat little sucker. Not bad looking for a FAB though.
Bot-mode isn't too bad, but not all that good. I was curious to see what the Deluxe version of him would look like with the additional black this one has, and here's what I've come up with:
Doesn't look that bad with it. Might add that to him when he comes out.
Edit: As for the whole Barricade/Sideways debate, I honestly think they are two separate bots. Though only time will tell. I think that if Barricade were to reformat, he would most likely keep his name. We're supposedly getting a Deluxe toy of him in the RotF line, so here's hoping that it's either a retool or a new mold all together. Also, I think if he did reformat into the R8, that his previous form would be released first, and then his new form. Kinda like Bumblebee's two forms in the first Movies toy line.
The FAB actually looks more like Barricade then the Deluxe did. lol
What the hell's up with this guy's character design?
I'm more and more convinced that Barricade becomes Sideways in the new movies. Too many coincidences.
That looks a lot better, and would potentially make him less confusing to the public since Sideswipe is also silver.
One hopes Hasbro initially confused itself by looking at stock photos of the R8 instead of the car used in the movie and the final version will have proper colours.
Passed on FAB Barricade, think I'll pass on this one too. This part of the line is really hit or miss.
Maybe he's just to Barricade as Bluestreak is to Prowl.
That's just my own way of making sense of it till we see the film.
It is in robot mode.
Neat. I can't help but be reminded of Bluestreak's Classics/Universe color scheme though. Heh, for that reason alone I might get him.
Separate names with a comma.
