    Who do you think is the better ninja bot? I can't decide between the 2 but if I had to choose one, I think I'd go with Sideswipe.

    Both are pretty darn ninja. Its really hard to choose!
    But I would probably have to go with sideswipe too.
    Mirage is a more of a assassin

    I would say Mirage, because ninjas are supposed to be stealthly and since Mirage has a cloak that helps.

    I don't think Ninjas use guns, and since Sideswipe does use guns it dosen't make him much of a ninja. So my vote goes to Mirage.

    Sideswipe by a mile. Dino was a bit of a disappointment. I don't think it's anywhere near as good a design. My jaw hit the floor when I saw the first leaked images of Sideswipe(was it 08/09?). It's an absolutely killer design.

    Dino doesn't do it for me. The doorwings are a bit cliché at this stage, and the massive thighs kinda bother me.

    Then you have his scenes in DOTM. I don't really remember what he did, and I couldn't make out what he said. By contrast I distinctly remember some of the Sideswipes scenes being pretty good.

    I whole heatedly agree with this, if you would have to use a comparison to a standard fantasy type class, I would say Sideswipe would be a lot closer to a Gladiator, far more showmanship/bravado and group leadership skills than a ninja. Both are skilled with close and ranged weapons though so its closer in that regard.

    and Dinage :)  would probably be in a less than an ironic twist be a Swashbuckler type, not so much a team leader per say, but still has that bravado and skills with melee weapons over range.

    Mirage is more of an Assassin (he's literally the robotic Ezio Auditore), whereas Sideswipe is the ninja(ish).

    Honestly, I have no idea where people are getting 'ninja' from where these two are concerned.

    How are either like a ninja? Sideswipe is a swashbuckling rapscallion, and Mirage is Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
