    - Shave off some plastic around the legs to allow for better articulation

    Hurray for more movie customs. Am I pissing you off yet? Well too bad because with me I'll repaint anything so if you enjoy variety then you're in luck because goddamn it I love this franchise. Now lets focus our attention towards version number 2 of Sideswipe whom I feel beats the pants off of the Revenge of the Fallen version. Better articulation, better sculpting, heck just being able to actually stand up makes me enjoy this mold. Sure the original figure was devoid of any paint but that's only good news for me because as usual I can make it look better. Or at the very least blow away Hasbro's meager attempt in a effort to save even more money because who else is gonna buy those 1 step change robots that are barely moving off of shelves? Seriously Hasbro, what the fuck? Eh, I guess I can save the bitching for another time. I'm too much in a good mood right now because I just finished up a butt ton of customs and I cannot wait to show them off.

    Fantastic repaint, nice poses too, though pesonally I cannot stand that mold, I think it's the open top exposing the lack of driver, ruins the fantasy of being a convincing alt mode, I'm so weird.

    Honestly it doesn't bother me that much but I can understand where you're coming from. Still better than FOC Jazz whose hands are fully exposed in vehicle mode.
