Is this guy worth getting because i never found sideswipe.
if you like the red, then yes, on the other hand you can still probbably find a deluxe sideswipe still if you like the silver
I passed on sideswipe to get the swerve hoping the paint is better.
I just picked him up for parts. (I broke Sideswipe trying to remove some paint.) Swerve's head pops off REALLY easily! The red paint on his clear parts doesn't match the red plastic. Other than that, he's fine.
BTW, what is that pic in you sig?
I think Swerve is AWESOME!!! The figure looks better in red than it did in silver, and I really dig the headsculpt...there's something about it that just screams BW Dinobot to me.
I bought Swerve because I love the alt mode and a reason to have a diff character in the same alt mode. I still prefer Silver Sideswipe to Swerve.
I almost bought him yesterday. Will probably pick him up later. The shade of red is a little weird though. I'll probably repaint him anyway.
I really like both Swerve and Sideswipe. I have the same problem Hotwire has with the head popping off easily though. That's really the only negative thing I can say about it...the red corvette car mode looks REALLY nice.
I have passed a few times. I would have bought it on site if it were totally painted like SS is, however it's mostly molded red plastic which is so so.
Yeah the red plastic looks cheap and it doesn't match it in other areas. I was going to get him too, but when I saw him in person I passed.
I felt like this was the Sideswipe we should have gotten. I like the color much better on him than on SS, but I still like SS as well. The head on mine didn't have any problems.
I saw one in person today and the red looked a little on the pinky side. Pity it wasn't that nice deep red Universe Inferno had.
Does anyone know if the Japanese version of Swerve is a deeper red? Or still pink?
IMO, he is better than Sideswipe.
I don't really think he's pink... I also prefer Swerve to Sideswipe. That color in alt mode is really nice.
