    When i was looking at the news story today about those ickle faux chibi robot hero toys, something caught my eye. The Sideswipe v Sideways set. Something caught my eye immediately. The fact the Audi R8icon and this Sideways toy have nothing in common. Most obvious of all, different colouration, though this could be doen to trying to seperate Sideswipe and Sideways from each other. Also, differing design, with red lights on the chest, different assembelage on the back, with.... something else in stead of doors, no doors on the shoulders either and something that looks like a whip, that isn't present on the toy, unless its kibble we haven't seen yet.

    Of course, it could all just be creative liscencing by the headcases who make the Robot Heroes, but what do you all think about it?

    This exact conversation is already occuring in the thread about the toys.

    Go read that thread for some insight into your questions. Specifically there is discussion about the color differences that have been noted.

    I don't know if the Robot Heroes line is an appropriate way to judge the character of Sideways ^_^. A lot of the differences are probably to make him stand out from Sideswipe.

    Sideways doesn't have doors on his back. He's also mostly black in robot mode and transforms differently than the toy. (you know, like EVERY movie design does) The RH version is based off the CGI model so of course it's going to look quite different, especially since it's a RH toy.

    The RH Blackout from the first movie was freaking blue-green with a more humanoid face. I'd say this incident isn't anything to get nutty over.

    Also if you notice, it looks like the back of the car is his chest in the RH toy, unlike the deluxe.
