    Let's be honest, the RotF version of Sideswipe was an okay figure but had serious issues. Chiefly, not being able to stand all that well. My friends, this updated figure fixes all those issues and then some.

    Hasbro has introduced a brand new mold with this toy and I couldn't be happier.

    The figure looks so awesome...I'm just hoping for a repaint into Sunstreaker or something to justify getting another 'swipe.

    I also got a Rebel Alliance vibe from the deco :)

    After getting this figure, I really have to give this subline credit. The newer figures are just so far beyond the earlier versions it's amazing.

    Although it does make me wonder what the third movie versions will be like.

    Great review! Made me want to get him even more. Haha

    Although that red paint and those awful red tinted windows really kill it for me. They should've used the red paint and painted in the tail lights instead!

    Thinking about getting the Takara version, but can't seem to justify for the price tag.

    Can you put the guns back into the roof in robot mode to give him shoulder cannons?

    Sadly no. If you store the guns the are pegged down by his butt. I haven't found a way to deploy them nicely in robot mode.

    I'll try to fan-mode one when I get him.

    That's what you get for commenting videos without watching them in full: watching it in full this time, I just realized that you could turn the feet around. Didn't know that!
