    I've seen the film 4 x's now, and the "Mexican standoff" scene where Ironhide and Sideswipe both take their guns out and point them to the Dreads, Sideswipe makes a quick turn, to face the both Dreads.
    I'm not sure how much attention people put into TF films, but that small turn he makes is just insane! :jawdropper:

    He's essencially on Rollerblades, I have done a similar move on mine. So, it is entirely plausable.

    Kind of hard to sneak around though with wheelfeet.

    I still think Dino kind of wins in speed/stealth.

    Can Sideswipe transform his feet into regular feet if he wanted to?

    Sideswipe would have been beaten if Ironhide wasn't there, I'll just say that. One of the dreads was knocked him over, and if the second one was still active, I believe he would have been defeated.

    Yeah, Mirage and Sideswipe are both pretty quick. I image Mirage is a lot faster in vehicle mode since he's a Ferrari, but Sideswipe his faster in robot mode.

    I don't think so? There doesn't appear to be anything around his wheels that could possibly form feet. But wheel feet are pretty cool.

    Why not, for example, bumblebee's arm transform into a cannon when he wants to/ he needs, I think Sideswipe can do that with his feet if he wanted or he needed, he just doesn't want to have regular feet.

    He doesnt need feet though lol. In ROTF when Galloway surrounded them with the army Sideswipe had his wheels locked and took a regular step with them. As well as the scene of Ironhide, Sideswipe and Ratchet standing behind Nest as Lennox gave out the battle plan you see him walk up to his place.

    I think according to those scenes Sideswipe can lock his wheels up at desire and walk around as if they were just regular feet.

    I see, there are brakes on his wheels, but what about if he wanted to climb? Don't answer it, spinning wheels with enough torque will help him alot in climbing, but there is still any possibility that he can transform his feet into regular feet, like laserbeak can transform into a pink human sized bumblebee, plasma tv, etc, and Brains can transform into a laptop even nothing in his bot mode looks like laptop part.
    btw, what kind of feet Sideswipe has on his protoform mode?

    It was never shown of him having normal feet, so no.

    also nobody knows. We never saw his protoform.

    Must be how they started the rumour of him being Blurr, until he was annouced to be Sideswipe.
