    I like the ROTF deluxe because it looks like it's the most accurate version of him. All of the others except the Human Alliance version don't have the arms under the armour and have them stick out which annoys me.

    The most movie accurate is probably the original deluxe version. The best toy IMo is the Sidearm one, even though it's not accurate. The best Alt. Mode is definately the Human Alliance.

    My favourite is Sidearm Sideswipe, definitely more screen accurate than the first deluxe IMO. I really like the DOTM deluxe, the lack of paint doesn't bother me, but i hate that he's now a convertible, i liked him as he was.

    I like the one with the blue and black pattern on the hood from the twin Pack that was sold with the Chinese deco Barricade best. (as a car) and as a robot Sidearm Sideswipe.

    Original RotF deluxe. I might have said the Takara Autbot Alliance deco of the sidearm mold, but I don't really want to pay out for another version of the same figure I already have and I am more than happy with.

    I will say however, that Human Alliance Sideswipe is underrated. Flame away if you like, but I get on just fine with him :thumbs2:

    Ugh. I hate the RoTF one. Just ugly, unstable, and a strange transformation.




    Not sure about the HA, so i'm going with the Sidearm.

    Actually, like the battle blade bumblebee, sidearm sideswipe is the most accurate Rotf version, which is also my fav so far.

    i feel like the first one catches Sideswipe's essence better, with the weapons and feet and overall feel.

    I only have the ROTF and Sidearm versions, but I think Sidearm is vastly superior.

    I don't own him, but Sidearm Sideswipe looks like he's the best. I'll make my own swords for him if I want 'em so bad. Plus, I actually didn't know that he had the guns in the movie until I watched it recently, so it's not like the toy was completely out of the blue.

    And speaking of "out of the blue", I want that race car 'Swipe from the front page, even if it's not Sideswipe himself (personally, it makes Tracks come to mind).

    I can't decide between the ROTF or Sidearm version of the mold. I think I prefer the ROTF one because it has blue windshield

    Sidearm is a tad smaller, but will fit nicely with the DOTM Deluxes because of that.

    It is however, a far superior figure in my opinion.

    So far my favourites Sideswipe molds from the movieverse are: ROTF Deluxe class, Robot Replica and the Legend Class. In that order. ^^
    I own the Deluxe and its awesome! ^^

    I have ROTF, HA, and Sidearm. Put off getting Sidearm for quite a while, but once I got him, there was no contest. Sidearm is the best IMHO. He also seems to be the most accurate as far as I can tell. The DOTM one looks pathetic so far. Looks LESS accurate than all previous versions.

    I woulds say the Deluxe.

    I have plans on getting Sidearm Sideswipe eventually, but the cannons left me a little butthurt.
