    I believe this belongs in the feedback thread, dude.

    I was hoping that Hasbro makes a premium line for DOTM just to have a decent paint job on Sideswipe.

    But now that i here the mold sucks as well. Pass, I'l stick to original and Sidearm.

    Well, it is thinner than the first sideswipe, it has a giant freaking gun and for me at least, the head stays well. The only problem for me personally is the hood

    I, in all honesty, do not mind the fig. He carries less kibble that ROTF version, with less bulky blades. He's easily more posable that his predecessor and easy to stand. My head isn't loose at all, so you could have exchanged yours if there is a problem. I plan on picking up some glossy metallic paints to spruce him up a bit, as with a couple other DOTM toys (Ratchet, Bumblebee, Roadbuster for starters).

    I don't even bother with his Mech-Tech weapon. Of the entire Mech-Tech weapons, Sideswipe's has the best rifle mode. The others have small barrels that don't look to intimidating. I'm using Sideswipe's gun as an alternate for Ratchet. I'm not a fan of his circular, weird, tommy-gun-looking thing.

    Didn't read any reviews or seen pics beforehand? Would've saved a lot of heartache unless you planned to paint him up from the very beginning...
