    Just curious but has anybody thought about what Sideswipe's attitude/personality will be like. G1, like Hot Rod from '86 maybe? Not sure how he was in any other series. One thing for sure though, I'm certain that he'll be a badass fighter.

    I always thought Sideswipe was like the pre-cursor character template to Hot Rod. I hope they keep him as a more impulsive, cool-under-fire type character.

    Though if they use him in that regard, I'll be surprised Bay just didn't go with Hot Rod to begin with. I mean, Hot Rod's already got the flames and all, Bay should be all over that...

    In all likelihood, he won't have enough screen time to form a real personality. I'm sure his toy bio will elude to it, but.... How many lines did ratchet or jazz have in the first movie? Can they really develop a personality?

    The problem will be compounded with an increased number of bots.

    We have had two Sideswipe's at opposite ends of the personality scale.

    G1 Sideswipe was a likeable jock, an experienced warrior and a friendly guy. Armada Sideswipe was an inexperienced rookie who idolised more cooler Autobots and manage to get into trouble a lot because of his recklessness.

    I'm betting it will be a cross of movie BB and movie Jazz

    Ruh Roh!

    I think he'll be a little less formal, but not a total dickweed. I hope he's still friendly. We are talking about Movie Sideswipe, right? You know there's a Movie forum?

    I kinda hope he's like the IDW comics version myself. He just seemed so cool to me, taking on the Dead Universe guys.

    He probably won't be anything like G1.

    I bet his an old angry war machine who wants to just kick the crap out of everything. He probably doesn't get along with anyone else that well.

    He'll be a character in a Michael Bay film. He won't have a personality, just a couple of vaguely amusing lines if he's lucky.

    Hmm, maybe he'll just pull an amusing face when Ironhide accidentally shoots him in the ass.
