    So i stumbled across this one and I must say the finished product looks impressive.

    Just to note this is just robot mode no vehicle mode at least not yet.

    Enjoy

    That's a lot of backpack.

    I don't know if this could outdo Sidearm as the definitive Sideswipe. His design just seems to be too difficult to get right.

    I agree sidearm is hard to beat but when I think about how this will likely be the last figure of the bayverse design before the possible reboot.

    I'm totally fine with sidearm and this version representing the bay movies

    I think this outdoes Sidearm by being sleeker, like Sideswipe is supposed to be, rather than that wide, burly thing that Sidearm is.

    This beats Sidearm by miles. Even with armblades he still looks too bulky for me.

    If I had to pick a “definite” pre-studio series Sideswipe my pick would’ve been the DOTM deluxe. Despite his lack of paint and wrong chest kibble he was the sleekest and best proportioned of the 3 Deluxe Sideswipes.

    A valiant effort considering the difficulties in his design.....

    I think I\'m gonna pass, he looks much better than the ROTF one, but the DOTM is such a fun toy and so sleek. That\'s fine, though, money saved in this hobby is its own victory.

    Sidearm is great for display but the legs are useful only to stand up straight. Transformation and look of the first mold are still my favorite ever.Never liked the first DOTM Deluxe, so I may pick up this one if he's not so tiny as Jazz or VW Bee.

    He looks good, I'm just surprised that even with no roof his backpack is still that large.

    It doesn't look like the side-arm blades are removable. That could be a turn off for some users if it's true.

    It went to the budget used on his vehicle form.

    And yet, Cogman appears to be fully painted in both modes. Strange.

    So the roof was eliminated so he could actually stand up as opposed to falling backwards every 10 seconds. I approve, even if I hate it. A wash will be applied to him the moment he comes out of the box.

    I'd been happier if the re-released Sidearm Sideswipe.
