    I've finally gotten my hands on Human Alliance Sideswipe!!! HA Sideswipe is one solid figure. The car mode especially is very sleek, not showing any gaps unlike the deluxe. Maybe its just me, but I actually think the robot mode for HA Sideswipe looks just as good as the deluxe Sideswipe. It looks better in person than in the photos actually. Transformation from robot to car is kinda complex. Will take some getting used too but its pretty straight forward. Kids will probably have a harder time transforming him. The figure overall is just as fun as HA Bumblebee. The ROTF Human Alliance series continues to impress me..

    Here are some photos of my HA Sideswipe. Some comparison shots with the Deluxe Sideswipe as well..

    Check out those doors!!!!

    Which one looks better? IMO, both. But the huge backpack behind HA Sideswipe makes him look fat. compared to the slimmer Deluxe Sideswipe..

    With everyone's favorite HA Bumblebee..

    Human Alliance Sideswipe is highly recommended! Buy on sight guys!!!

    Well, I think he looks good, but I don't think he looks good enough to spend the same I would on Bumblebee. He looks more like a $20 figure.

    Mmm.. Still a pass for me. The back kibble is just too much IMO.. :(  Aside from that, he looks pretty nice in robot mode. However, since the Deluxe makes him slimmer and more agile, I guess the HA is at a disadvantage in this case..

    But the car mode..! That is one figure you got to admire. The sleek and shiny look is what makes him very cool :thumb

    Someone said he had the fold out midriff 'horns' that the deluxe has, is that true?

    nice review, thanks! im definitely picking up all the HA figures, they look awesome.. this one looks especially good in vehicle mode, but bot mode is cool too.. possibly not as cool as the deluxe, but like u say, it probably looks better in real life

    I noticed u are from Singapore too.. I got mine from the Robinsons store at Raffles City... Plenty there!!! Indeed its a nice piece especially if you are a car enthusiast. Its the only model of the Corvette Stingray Concept in this scale complete with the lambo doors!!! Looks really impressive!!

    In three-dimensions, I bet the torso will seem less fat and the distinction between the core body and backpack much easier to make.


    He looks very solid, and full of the pop-out guns and features HA BB had. Deffinately picking this up, if only for the beyond sexy car mode.

    From what I've seen, this guy has a huge gaping hole between the torso, and his backpack, basically making him hollow.

    That is what is turning me off from buying this thing, and clearly it isn't as well engineered as HA BB.

    Where's a side pic of him, so I can see that huge gaping hole?

    I'm not concerned about the back kibble. It's the fatness of the arms and thighs. holy crap. Seriously. Those are the things that make it fat.

    Yeah, arms and thihgts kill it. Funny thing is, the Deluxe is MORe movie accurate than the HA one. Why> Because he has the exaust pipes that were missle pods in the movie. The HA one has them pointing dow. ;] I'll get HA BB, but not this guy. I'll stick to his deluxe.

    You can swivel the back piece so that the exhaust missile pods point upwards though, one of the photos from another site recently showed this.

    Like I said, when I saw video reviews of this thing, it had a huge hole inbetween the torso and back kibble.

    I hate TF's with huge holes in the middle.

    His face is seriously creepy. What an unnatural chubby smile.


    Aside from that I love it.
