I see lot of comment on that is there a rumor or we are just assuming it will happen. if it happen sidewipe will be in the 40 /60 price range

Anywhom, I hate this toy so much for its small size and lack of rubber and metal, yet I can't wait for RK to ship this bad boy to me.

Maybe some of us really like it and really want it, and the accurate scale is bonus to us? Is this how a Masterpiece for Optimus or Megatron or Galvatron should be? Of course not. But for a character like Sideswipe, it's perfect IMO. In comparison to the MP:G1 toy scale ratio, it still fits, quite well at that.

You have to pick one scale to do these in. I'm clad they chose robot. Transformers vehicles have always cheated even back way in the cartoon. I prefer they keep the robots in scale and let the alt modes be what ever size they have to to achieve that.
Sorry, but if the real world vehicle modes are not in scale to each other, then it's not in scale. That's what scale _IS_ -- you can't say "the robot modes are in scale" if the vehicle modes aren't.

If a size sheet shows robot modes in a size that makes the vehicle modes out of scale, then the size sheet/robot modes aren't in scale either! Robot mode sizes from the animation are meaningless. The size sheet from the original series is about trying to make the robots more the same size (i.e. NOT in scale) so they fit visually in a scene better.
Signature images are to be no larger than 40 KB in file size and should be no larger than 300 pixels in height and 500 pixels wide. Your sig was 81.66 KB . Height: 160 Width: 500 - 2005 Staff

I can't blame you on that one. Despite being looked cheap, I'm going to keep my preorder. The only good part about MP12 is the car mode, hehee. The rest, let's see:
-No rubber tire
-Lower leg especially by the feet area, is too hollow.
-Large chest in robot mode.
-Lip and eyes don't look right.
-Huge Autobot insignia at the chest.
-Instructional sheet instead of the typical booklet manual with fancy art. Talk about going for the cheap course, even Binal Tech has booklet.

Funny is, again, despite the above flaws, I still like him, hehe.

Sigged.

I'm tempted to get this but I like how Red Alert turned out better.

I will have this but it does not excite me in any way. I feel like I need it to check off one more box in my definitive G1 character check list. Looking at it I feel like it is more suited to be sold as a voyager with a $50 price ( our local voyager price ).
