    I have nearly the entire line of HFTD and since it seems RTS is a direct continuation of it. I'm wondering if these exclusives will be brought into the whole RTS Classics type line.

    More than likely cancelled, seeing as HFTD is pretty much over.

    I was really more interested in the 3 little bike sisters. Also HFTD IS going to look wierd w/o a Decepticon Leader.

    Unlike most of the other Sideways releases, this one had one with a black abdomen piece that really made it look a lot nicer than the one with the day-glo red abdomen piece. I think the previous 2-pack Sideways had the black piece as well, but you had to buy the Ice Cream Twins to get it.

    I think the packaging on these sets said "Hunt For The Decepticons", not "Reveal the Shield". Given that HFTD is now over, I think it's fair to say they were canceled. It's not impossible that they may still show up in the RtS line (or even the DOTM line) but it's probably unlikely.

    Aw, man... if it's true they canceled Sideways Sneak Attack, I'm going to be sad. I kinda like the way the Sideways in that set looked.

    The Sideways pack was the only one that I wanted to get of Sideways, especially since he and the Arcee trio would make a wonderful diorama. It's just too bad...:(

    Ebay:
    Autobot Alliance The Ravage Infiltration was released in the UK back in September 2010.

    In the bottom there was a cross promotion of the Sideways sneak attack. Unfortunately it has not been released.

    I'm sure we'll see them eventually. Maybe the next round of Q&As will give us a definite answer
