    1: Sideswipe. I thought I was going to hate that he wasn't red, but for the few scenes he was around, in-name-only Sideswipe was cool.

    2: Jolt. Never referred to, and just a background guy, but I like Jolt. I can't wait for his toy to complete my movie Autobot set up.

    *breathes out* There, I said something nice. I feel a l'il better.

    I really liked Jolt's design in this movie, but like a lot of things, he was a wasted opportunity.

    Contrary to my initial fears ..
    It turned out I quite liked Wheelie and the Twins after all.

    The twins were enjoyable, in fact I really liked most of the designs but like Satomiblood pointed out most of the new characters were wasted opportunities. Its probably what frustrated me the lost is that the movie had the potential to be sooooo much better. Quite disappointing :cry

    That should speak volumes about how much I didn't like it.

    Wheelie ended up being my second favorite, only after Optimus. Just his little sayings, and how small he is. I wish he didn't disappear at the final batter.

    I liked how it seemed they were a little "smarter" with how they used the sets to obscure things during the fight sequences. I felt it gave a somewhat better idea of the size of the transformers from a human perspective, without relying entirely on shakycam.

    Wait, are you using GOBOTS Sideswipe as your point of reference, or that awful Cybertron toy? Or are you thinking of the original Skids? What are you thinking of?

    THAT is your version of Sideswipe? Yes, ignore the original Sideswipe and the ten other red versions of Sideswipe. I think you should stop talking now.

    Says the guy who thinks Sideswipe should be red just because the original toy was too.

    two things I liked...

    1. Sideswipes alt mode (GM needs to make me one)
    2. Soundwave's appearance (even if he didn't really do anything)

    I think you just forgot what the original Sideswipe looked like, if you knew at all. Arguing as fact that Sideswipe is blue based on his Cybertron mold, and not saying something along the lines of "Well, 2 of Sideswipe's 12 toys have been blue..." makes you appear uninformed.

    But in the end, movie Sideswipe is not Armada Sideswipe is not G2 Sideswipe is not G1 Sideswipe. So he shouldn't have to be any particular color.

    A Corvette fanboy I used to talk to thought Silver was honestly the best color for that car. But then, he also prefers yellow BT Tracks over blue.
