    And was that person named Tiller?:rolleyes: 

    Not sure the boards want to endorse leaked stuff though. Otherwise I think more people would post it. Usually Kotaku jumps on that kind of stuff so they don't care.

    Yeah, that was that guy who was in one of the trailers that everyone thought was either Sideswipe or Cliffjumper. Looks like it was Sideswipe.

    Pretty bitchen. Though something I just noticed is that he appears to have earth tires on his shoulders. That's a bit weird.

    It was here a few weeks ago, along with pictures of several characters recently made official. He has a pretty sweet card mode, but it looks very much like a car from Earth, much more than previously seen ones.

    Well, the pictures were deleted. With nothing to support the thread, it just...died.

    EDIT: Some of us were able to snag copies for they disappeared (a big thank you to them :D  )

    Here's Sideswipe's alternate mode:

    hey you never know... maybe the popularity of his movie toy will get us a wfc one.

    i wonder if he's in the game normally or will just be an exclusive?

    Although I say I wish we'd get a toy, I kinda doubt it. It really hasn't been that long since we got the Classics/Universe2.0 Deluxe Sideswipe, and although this is a different design, it's not really different enough(Mainly in robot mode.) for me to see Hasbro putting out a figure of it.
    Remember, the WFC figures are just a small run in the Generations line, which is basically the new name for Classics.

    Given he was in the main trailer for the game, he's most likely not an exclusive. He's probably at the very least, a cast member in the story mode, if not an actual playable character.

    So far, all the characters that have been given official pics like that have all either been...

    A. Playable in single player.

    B. Escalation mode only preorder characters. (if so I can only wonder which store he'd be tied to)

    I don't think he is. His picture was among the group of pictures that, so far, had characters for the campaign modes. One extra red and black character in particular--the only one that I've seen not yet announced--was seen elsewhere, so that one might be an exclusive somewhere (I hope not).

    I love how this Sideswipe incorporates elements from G1 and ROTF. His bot mode (especially the head) draws mostly from G1, but that vehicle is strikingly similar to the Stingray, with the grill and headlights.

    Y'know the good part about all those generic g1 character repaints, is that even if people like Red Alert or Cliffjumper don't get in the game, we can just use the multiplayer customization to make the good ol' characters we want from people like Sideswipe and Bumblebee.
