    I've been looking at ROTF Sideswipe's design and he looks very aerodynamic and made for speed, he even has wheel feet, I was thinking this design would be more suited to a movie Blurr. I know the blades are probably what give him his name though.

    Blurr would have been a cool name, being that I can see Sideswipe/Blurr speeding all over the place with that monster engine he and those wheel feet. Would be awesome to hear him revving in for a few slashes of his sword, and then speeding out in a chase scene.

    I think i read somewhere he was names Sideswipe because of how he fights and attacks. But yes that is what i would envision movie Blurr looking like, or something like that anyway.

    well if they ever add blur to maybe a transformer 3 he should a lamborghini or one of the very very rare and expensive foreign sports cars i think one is called a bogotti something like that.
    and since i mention a future transformers 3. can you see this transformers trilogy without hotrod making a appearence i know some didn't like the hotrod era. but i did and would love to see him in live action film.

    Blurr as a blue Bugatti Zonda (Xonda not sure how to spell it) would also be awsome!

    If i had the money i'd have a Veyron AND a Zonda!

    I honestly think Sideswipe should, by the fans, be renamed Blurr. I only like the thought of Sideswipe and Sunstreaker being twins, but not necessarily Lambo's.

    But give us transformation designs that are just as good as ROTF SS for the Swipe and Streaker.

    Things don't have to be exactly like G1.

    I don't think the robot mode would be a Blurr (but then again, this is the movieverse and most of the time the characters don't look like their old selves 1 on 1 anyway)...

    I will tell you this, though: the alt mode is definitely a Blurr! So much in fact, I think they now shouldn't add him to a possible third movie, because there would be no other car that could be a Blurr more than the one Sideswipe is using.

    Yea i def like sideswipe much better as the name IMO. But i would love to see Blurr in TF3 as a Zonda F roadster that would look absolutely awesome.

    Seeing him in action will help in this. I think he's gonna be fast but not 'Blurr' fast.

    Name suggests (if they did name him according to battle style) a rapid fire close range fighter who uses speed and agility to get around opponents and strike hard.

    Nah, Sideswipe fits better as a name, considering he...swipes...from the side?

    Additionally, even though movieverse is a different continuity, having Sideswipe be the aggressive, close-in melee fighter fits most interpretations of his character better than it does Blurr's.

    Sideswipe may not be the showoff and glory-seeker Sunstreaker is, but he's definitely hyper-competitive and looking for validation through his actions.

    Pity...if we had to have twins in this movie, I would have loved to have seen a hardcore, almost vicious Sunstreaker. But I guess they didn't want someone else yellow.

    Could have gone with gold, though.

    Or a copper colour. Aside from Optimus and BB none of them have the G1 colour schemes so kinda not an excuse... but yes allas we will not have the deadly duo.

    I'd rather see Blurr as a Bugatti Veyron,or Lamborghini Reventon or better yet a Corvette ZR-1.

    Yes it would. When I first saw the design I actually thought it was Blurr.
