    You have an excellent point in this statement that I cannot dispute.

    For me many of these Diaclone / Selects retreads are the "first" versions of these toys, even though I know they are not.

    Got him today. He's solid. Never handled the sideswipe mold despite having the original locked up in storage. The Datsun mold is garbage imho compared to this.

    I know this mold is loosely based off of a Lamborghini, but it needs a spoiler on the rear. It looks completely naked on the back to me.

    I have Deep Cover, Siege Sideswipe and Tigertrack. Does Sideswipe himself not come with a gun in addition to the shoulder launcher, or did I lose it?

    I pre-ordered him from Hasbropulse. I might also get the Netflix Deep Cover version too depending on how he looks.

    Remember Automan and Cursor?

    Nope. Just check the manual.

    My Asian supplier just gave me its general this February 2021. Hopefully he'll stick with it.

    Leakers have said the Netflix Deep Cover is an all blue version, which I think can look cool. However, I am not a big fan of the Netflix weathering/battle damage paint job so it depends on how the paint job looks. People are disappointed, like me, that the Netflix version isn't Clampdown instead.

Now it's at within Feb 2021. Son't even get me started with Amazon :lolol  where they had to release by batches, Cyclonus, Warpath and the Dominus sets. Fitst it next Wednesday then shows up like today.

    considering how hard some Walmart exclusives are to get maybe it’s a blessing. All blue could be cool though.

    I am a whore for the Siege Sideswipe mold and would also buy an Automan repaint. I would think of him as a TRON character.

    I think the original Sideswipe be my first Transformers figure. Might explain why I’m a sucker for these redecos.

    So, I just realized that is says "VICTORY" in the bottom right corner of one of the promo images. What do you all suppose that means? As much as I wish it were the case, it's likely not hinting at a TF Victory character.
