    Ok, first time giving feedback for a new fig so bear with me... What can I say about this figure. It does have a lot of articulation, isn't forced to stay in a single pose like some of the first movie RR's.

    Lot's of nice little detailing put into Sideswipe, including the little Corvette Flags in the center of his torso. His legs are double jointed, bends right under the silver section of thigh, and a lil further down right above the wheels. And as far as standing goes, he has flat sections molded to the bottom of the tires. As well as a stablizing bar that goes towards the back. The arms have swivel joints at the shoulders and elbows, with a rotating joint also at the elbow to move the hands around. The blades on the hads are a lil flimsy, as you can see they have a slight bow to them. The two body sections on the upper torso have a lil move to them for posing, and the head can pretty much go any direction.

    I can get more pics up soon. As far as sizing compared to the deluxe Sideswipe, he sits about an inch shorter.

    This is a great Robot Replica and think that the new line is gonna be great!

    Well, he is between an inch and a inch and a quarter shorter. Here is a pic, unfortunately, last night after I posted, I didn't get a chance to take more pics, and I am at work now, only access to my comic. But I will give a lot better shots tonight in comparrisons. Are there any specific shots that someone wants? Poses?

    Wow, sick.

    Wish the toy wasn't as back-packy as the RR, but I love the design, wheel feet and all.

    I'm really looking forward to this, the new prime, and the Constructicons. Some of the best designs in the movie-verse IMO.
