Exactly Maz! I know all about your articles haha they are what highlighted this whole scenario to me But while in your Tigertrack article you say that 12T is how Sideswipe should've looked, I actually think it's totally how Sunstreaker should've looked. Think about it: if Sideswipe was labelled as a red Countach and Sunstreaker as a yellow one then it's kinda impossible for them to mismatch or forget what colours they're supposed to be. What would be easier to fuck up is which Countach each one is supposed to be. It never made sense to me that they could somehow swap their names around, and their colour. Isn't it also true that the original Diaclone Countach was never released in yellow before TFs anyway? So naturally Bud working from the original Diaclones would've assumed that red Sideswipe would have a jetpack and pile-driving hands. Then after he had written the bios, attached to their names and colours, someone simply fucked up and assumed that the New Countach should be red and the original Countach should be yellow (because they didn't bother reading the actual bios).
