    Thanks for the pics. I saw all of these today at my local Target. I picked up Jolt, but had to put Sideswipe back on the rack - his RPM is a JOKE! It isn't even REMOTELY the correct car. Garbage.

    I saw Sideswipe (alongside Mixmaster and Jolt) in tesco stores in my country 3 weeks ago... I was kinda expecting SW's blades to be blue or silver, not red :cool:

    For $3 less, you can buy a die cast version of the Hot Wheels gray Corvette Stingray Concept officially licensed to Mattel, which also recently came out. RPMs Sideswipe really looks like an Aston Martin.

    I don't like that new RPM packaging. The "old" packaging had the character's heads right at the edge of the left side of the packaging so you could tell what cars were on the pegs just by casually glancing down that side. Not so with this new packaging.

    Yup, it is because of that Hot Wheels toy that we can't have an accurate RPM of Sideswipe, kinda sucks but not that big of deal really.
