    Hooray! Universe Sideswipe is here!

    Quite the awesome figure. His alt mode is the same as Sunstreaker's, with a shinier turbocharger (which is likely being swapped with Sunstreaker's):

    Transformation is much the same, with the head facing a different direction:

    Also, a jetpack!

    Like I said above, and outstanding figure, with enough differences to warrant a second purchase. Also, the red is a BEAUTIFUL deep pearly red, almost metallic. VERY nice. Definitely an A+ figure, get it when you can!


    EDIT: Swapped out Sideswipe's lower legs. PERFECT!

    NICE!

    I want him.


    Hey, are his limbs (and the parts that are grey on Streaker) white-ish? He might be easier to turn into Red Alert than I thought.

    Nice, I like how his weapon & turbocharger are shinier, but I'll keep them on Sideswipe when I get him as I like him better. I do hope next years Botcon set has a Punch/Counterpunch out of this mold.

    Yeah, I'm debating it, I just think Sunstreaker SHOULD have a shiner turbocharger, especially since it's part of Sunstreaker's look, and just an extra piece on Swipe.

    I agree though, if we don't get a P/CP version of this mold at some point down the line, someone isn't doing their job.

    Awesome! I'm so glad he's got those white parts. I passed up Sunstreaker waiting for this guy and now I'm even more excited for him to arrive.

    Because Sideswipe is much more iconic to me, and I typically don't buy more than one mold of any given toy. Not knockin' Sunstreaker at all, if it were only him available I'd have nabbed him long ago. :) 

    Same goes for Prowl/Silverstreak. I'm holding out for Streak.

    Nice pics :thumbs2: . I'm looking forward to getting Sideswipe. Sunstreaker is pretty awesome. Here's hoping we get at least one more figure out of this mold (Red Alert), if not two more (Wheeljack).

    Excellent review. This is why Peaugh is my favorite reviewer: nice, clear, concise. None of that flamboyant stuff. Thank you again kind sir.

    The only thing missing is the drama. What? no ironhide drama. Dang. I miss the silverbolt drama.
