    Neither, Hasbro's original deluxe is still the best representation of the on-screen character model.

    Neither, though if I were to it'd be Hasbro's, I actually like the flame deco.

    Neither. The original Sideswipe is still fine with me.

    Definitely not Takara's. I'm still undecided about whether to get the Hasbro version or not; the original Deluxe Sideswipe mold is excellent.

    If I get it, I'd like to get the takara version, but I have this thing about paying 20 dollars extra for a slightly different deco. so I'd get the hasbro one.

    Hasbro... I don't like to buy molds with same alt. mode with same color (even if the bot mode is different) and I will not waste money in the Takara one... that is if I buy the Hasbro one

    I like the pistols, but I'm content with my regular 'Swipe.

    I am pretty sure to pass on both, but if i got a gift certificate from an aunt or something, i'd get the Takara one.
    I don't like the Burger King, Flame broiled front look, lol

    Sidearm...

    I love the lack of red deco on the Takara version. All silver looks very nice and polished!

    But I just cant affort to import with this figure. He's just not worth it...

    For 10-12 bucks, I can affort this...

    I'll happily buy the Hasbro version. Unless I learn of an eventual repaint...

    The red wouldnt be so bad. But I may need to "fill in" the front grill, which looks painfully unfinished.

    I mean how can Hasbro actually think the paint deco looks finished?

    I'm satisfied with the original release, unless I can the Takara one for a good price. TF3 will have a new Sideswipe anyways.

    I like what I see with the new mold, but the original ROTF Sideswipe Deluxe suits me just fine.

    I'm going to wait and see if they redeco/mold it into a different character. If they do that, then I'll pick one up.
    It'd be great if they made it into Sunstreaker, cause then he'd go great with the original Sideswipe figure. Same alt-mode, but different robot modes.

    Neither. I already have the sword Sideswipe and I prefer the swords to the guns.

    Neither of these. I like the Hasbro Deluxe just fine for my movieverse Sideswipe.

    However, if they repaint this mold in awesome colors (I'm hoping for gold = Sunstreaker), I'll buy it. The transformation looks very fun.

    Neither. To save room I'm trying to avoid character redundancy within a line when possible. But the mold does look great, so if it gets a repaint into another character (Sunstreaker or Tracks, maybe) I'll bite then.

    Surely it will be repainted.... I can't see them creating an entirely new mold (of a character they already released just a little while ago) without plans to milk it a bit more.

    Neither. Between HA and deluxe, I'm good.
