I misspelled due, argh!!!!!!!!! First off I'm a huge Sideswipe fan. But think about this. If High Moon wanted another scout character for the story mode why not add Jazz or Prowl? I know High Moon says this game uses the G1 cartoon as a template but Jazz had more screen time than Sideswipe in the toon. In the current IDW line Jazz played a big role in the first half of AHM. I mention this because HM is using elements from the comics (ex: Stunticons and Aerialbots already on Cybertron). Jazz is more well known to the casual fan than say Sideswipe. In the DK guide written by Furman, Jazz is one of the core characters along with Bee, Ratchet and Prowl. Speaking of Prowl, he probably had the same amount of time in toon as Sideswipe. Late in the Marvel run he became important, was important in DW and plays a huge role currently in IDW. Again in the DK guide by Furman he's one of the core characters with Jazz, Bee and Ratchet. And by core characters him, Jazz, Bee and Prowl are listed as sub commanders/lieutenants. My conclusion is that Sideswipe was probably added due to the ROTF. While I'm thankful I can't help but wonder why 2 key figures such as Prowl and Jazz were left out of story mode as playable characters. Leaving this 2 out would be like not having Thundercracker and Skywarp. Thoughts?
