The Arker has posted new images of the upcoming Super Tuner Throwdown boxset for the Revenge of the Fallen line. It features Autobot Blowpipe versus Decepticon Sideways. Sideways appears unchanged from his mass release, while Blowpipe is a redeco of the Movie 2007 Dropkick/Salvage. His name comes from a Decepticon G1 Targetmaster famous for being Lord Zarak's brother in law.

blowpipe
Bulletbill
Not exactly the best name choice..
Maloknazh
Hm. Not a bad lookin combo set, too bad Sideways is such a shelfwarmer here, maybe Walmart could be smart for once, and maybe I could ONE DAY get my hands on something like this.

they really like to keep releasing sidways don't they

Yeah, and still no movie-accurate vehicle mode deco for him.
prime13
yeah, he doesnt even have the one silver hand like the original.
Tech Spec
man... now ima have an extra Sideways to sell..... oh well

Blowpipe is a dope repaint though
Toxicon
Will not be buying.
AllSparkd
Dropkick my Blowpipe!
KingGrimlock
Don't own sideways or the dropkick mold, but i already have dead end who looks much nicer, and i much rather buy a dropkick off of ebay because blowpipe looks VERY meh.
brr-icy
meh, dropkick's vehicle mode looks better than blowpipes IMO
mrclean08
Does anyone actually collect every single recolored renamed character that Hasbro tries to sell us?
Flarglenoogin
Blowpipe, eh? Now that's not a very kid friendly name, now is it? They might as well just call him Pimpster. I'd buy that toy as long as he came with a cane and a coat.

At least he's just a little bit different then.

Lazy repaint.
vslayerntx
ugh...I feel liek hasbro isn't even trying anymore......they keep throwing these regurgitated figure repaints like the whirl/bludgeon......ratchet/grindor.....smokescreen.....reverb and so on.......i mean at least with swerve and thrust they gave them new head molds....

Yes. If the character isn't the same, I'll buy the repaint. If it is the same dude in new clothes, its more of a hit or miss basis (ala Stealth Bee=hit, Offroad Ihide=miss).
Mechafire
Will buy, just because I adore the Dropkick mold.
Seawing
Pass, already have Dropkick & Salvage

I may grab this at somepoint but yes unfortunate name

Blowpipe? What were they smoking?
RedAlert Rescue
I think Blowpipe is interesting though he could perhaps have done with some extra paint in a place or two. and he is rather similar to the original decoration the mold has. - I had issues with the arms falling off a lot on Salvage so I hope that is not an issue on this version of the toy.

I'm not sure which color version of Sideways that is from the picture the dark or the light - looks quite light in one shot and quite dark in the other.

A set i'd get though - mainly for Blowpipe.

Why, isn't that what they call those weapons the south-american indians use to shoot poison darts from?

Colors are a nice hommage to G1 Blowpipe, but really, that was not the best mold for this. Universe Nightstick would have worked better repainted.

Btw - I always found it hilarious how Zarak apparently hired his relatives into the "business". "Hey Joe, I got this sweet new deal where I work with a ten stories high giant robot that turns into scorpion. If you want in, we have openings in the weapons department!"
reave
Why wouldn't they just call him PIPES?
Triggerhappy
I guess I have to like this!

Can anyone read the bio?

Was actually going to ask/request the same thing.

Also, I don't have Sideways along with not owning any mold of Dropkick, but I've been considering it. This is a great two birds sort of deal for me.
Mister Gone
So the next 2 pack we should expect is Sideswipe vs TruckNutz (A repaint of Armada Sideswipe)?
tfan123
Cool. I need another sideways, and ive been wiating for robot pics of blowpipe. So this is a definete HELL YEA!
SpinalCord
May get Blowpipe off ebay just for the name.
Scantron
Great, just what we need, more Sideways on the shelves.

Anyway, I'll have to pass on this, as I already have the individual release Sideways and two previous versions of the Dropkick mold.
shibamura_prime
I'm honestly not the biggest fan of either of these molds, but I may pick it up just for the Targetmaster homage. XD
stickz24
man that name doesn't sound good at all... they should replace him with sideswipe because aren't they like arch enemies ??

Hi, *raises hand*

I consider it a accomplishment to complete a line. Recolors are'nt a big problem.

Besides I thought the sideways was the one with vehicle mode tampographed bullet holes.
would prefer a varient but a extra is not going to kill you.

It does seem like a homage to pipes does'nt it? being a blue truck with gun hands.

We can only hope they reuse the blowpipe name rights for a universe targetmaster.

Gah, thats funny!

I wish sideways was in the movie more since hasbro keeps releasing his figure.
gargunkle
Is Dropkick even really recolored much? Doesn't seem to be, to me.
dragon
blowpipe...? is hasbro trying to get kids to do drugs on bongs

The same reason we're getting Skyfall instead of Skyjack and Fearswoop instead of Hooligan, I'd imagine. The name probably wasn't available.
Autobot Burnout
If I aready had the Dropkick mold, I wouldn't need this set. But I don't so I need this set. Looks like I'll be breaking my "no repaints/retools" rule again since I'll be getting Sideways AND Dead end eventually now...
flywheels
Easy pass.
Cyber-Scream
Whats the reason for this?
megatronkicksas
Two things:

1) Blowpipe

-horrible name

-great toy

2) Sideways

-Is there a box set out that doesn't involve Sideways?
generalblast
Cool Set Though. Really like Blowpipe, since I didn't get the 1st movie line Salvage/Dropkick. I think he's an awesome figure.

Wanted to get the set, but there is Sideways, which I already have. So no get. Also, why does two sets in a row have Sideways?

Super Tuner Throwdown
Sideways, Longarm, and Another Bot Set (Battle Damaged)

Euro:
Sideways vs. (Unreasonable) Wheelie
Bgrngod
Well, at least the new figure I want is in a 2 pack and not a 3 or 4 pack. Only one spare fig instead of several.

Can't quite make out that bio either. I gave it a go, but only 1/4th of it is readable.
Bort826TFWorld
That two back would have been better if Dropkick was repainted into Trailbreaker.
VBBN
I am sick of people complaining about the name Blowpipe.
I mean, tons of other names are worse. Bulkhead anyone? X]

Aaaanywho, Blowpipe is too similar to Dropkick and I already have sideways.
Easy pass.
