    Well,I bought my Sideswipe at Retail yesterday.Its a Great toy,i really recommend,but,its not about this i am going to talk about.

    I was Watching a Review of him,and i noticed that the blue part from the knees,was translucent at the video,but on mine one was a type of mettalic dark blue paint.

    I dont know if this is from the versions that came to Brasil or anything else,but,i want to ask if any of you have notice this.

    I believe the regular release is the blue knees. That's how many pictures show it.

    He could've had a pre-release sample.

    Mine has translucent blue knee guards. It's hard to tell at first, but it's there.

    Dunno. I just held SS up to the computer monitor and I can see the light going through.

    This has got nothing to do with the issue at hand..but do other people's Sideswipes have the windows fixated? You know..they fixated the paint so it will not chip off in time, but with my toy they also sprayed it over the blue plastic windows..giving it a rigid structure (and it catches dust more easily).

    I'm wondering if this is with all Sideswipes, or some factory worker went overzealous on my toy. :)

    Oh, they're still translucent, but when you touch them it doesn't feel like smooth plastic, but more like sandpaper..:p

    Mine are also the sparkly metallic translucent stuff; had to look at them in the right light to see that they were though.
