    Long before the licensed Camaros and Corvettes of the Transformers live action movie series, Hasbro was featuring real-life car designs in the Transformers line, with one of the very first being the Lamborghini, Sideswipe. Last year Takara-Tomy once again got the license to make a Lamborghini Sideswipe and thus Masterpiece Sideswipe, or Lambor as he is known in Japan, was born! The first of the "smaller scale" Masterpieces, Masterpiece Sideswipe does not fail to impress with the details or poseability, which both remain top notch as we have come to expect of the Masterpiece series.

    Looks good to me, but expect criticism because of the few transformation problems!

    Nice photos. But to nitpick a little bit - unless of course you were going for that look:
    You have forgotten to flip over the panels on his upper lower legs in bot mode and the side windows can be stored a bit further behind his back, so that they are inivisible when looking at the bot from the front.

    You guys are correct, I missed a couple transformation finalities there. I guess that's what you get for not looking at the instructions. :) .

    I will try to do a couple shots with the proper final steps and add for reference. Not doing whole gallery over again tho :) 

    Later!

    I honestly think MP Sideswipe is the most-mistransformed figure in years. I see it wrong more often than right.

    My favorite MP to date. Soundwave is #1 just b/c I love the character but MP Sideswipe's transformation is a perfect mix of complexity and fun. Great photos!

    In the last decade, I can probably count on my hands the times I've used actual instructions. These photos still rock :cool:

    I had planned to just stick with the Hasbro MP releases. Now I have preorders in for all the upcoming Takara MP figures. I think I will still go Hasbro when I know they will get a release. For the figures I know that won't make it I will get the Takara. I just wish I had decided this before the original batch sold now. Now I get to pay double for Sideswipe. No thanks to your pictures for convincing me to keep the preorder. Darn you! Haha.
