Man. I've been in the game for awhile now...since wave 1 of G1 to be exact! Yes, I'm old. Anyway, along the way I've had my favorites...G1 figs, Classics figs, I really loved some of the RID autobots and I'm a fan of the movie toys. So, I guess all I'm trying to say is that I really, really love the ROTF Sideswipe figure, at least once the feet are modded to be wheels. Anyway, once that tiny mod is done, it really drives this figure home. He has the seriousness of the RID style, a good transform, great in both modes, a serious warrior, a totally original, non childish design... THIS is what I wanted after RID, but got Armada instead. That is all.
