    I mean if Takara was also trying to skip licensing fees in 1982 when they stuck the badge on the original Diaclone toy, then sure. Regardless of intent, I'm glad it's there.

    I'm perfectly aware there's a difference between Identical and Fraternal. I'm not stupid, thank you very much :rolleyes2 

    The Twins have been refered to as Identical, Fraternal and Split Spark.
    Obviously they are not Identical, as they're robot forms look nothing alike.
    They are not Split Spark, as a being cannot live with half of a spark.
    What they are is Fraternal. They were created and born together, but do not share base features and have different personalities.

    I realised my mistake, and that we are in agreement, if you check. ;)  The fact you didn't quote exactly who you were replying to threw me.

    Not even that for me. I just want the alt mode's sides to be smooth and not the engraved ridges. Therest ofhim I was fine with.

    I think another reason it’s 99% a Siege Sideswipe & not an Earthrise one is I think it’s highly unlikely (though not impossible!) they’d use the new tooling on a Selects release first.

    Like I say it’s not impossible (we used to get the pretools come out first all the time) but I don’t think it’d show up in Selects first with no fanfare.

    Plus I’m kinda relieved, as hopefully I can get an Earth mode Sideswipe / Red Alert & Cybertronian mode Deep cover / Clampdown with a few more differences than just the heads / colours now!

    They're both the same model of COuntach, the LP500S. The only difference in their modes was Sunstreaker having that backmounted engine or whatever the exact thing is, which ER Streaker has as a removable accessory. As such, using Streaker's base alt mode as what Sideswipe's should be is not unwarranted and, given the work put into Ironhide, Ratchet, and the Datsuns, not unexpected of Hasbro

    I have no idea what that is but I'll take it (probably).

    I have my suspicions that "Earth Mode" Sideswipe could literally be the alternate canopy moulding they designed for the 'Swipe mould from the off. Yes, I am a cynic, at least on the toy production front! :p

    really dont get why this thing even exists, the og fig is some ehobby repaint from 17 years ago and this mold was already used in selects for tigertrack. all this thing is is just blue g2 sideswipe. like, seriously?
    i mean select hot shot is smth we barely see, a design outside of g1 but in a g1 style, why not do more of that shit instead of milking this mold like the seeker mold

    Because Sideswipe has become the Autobot seeker mold and Deep Cover is a glaring omission in the otherwise pretty full diaclone lineup from Tigertrack, Cordon, and Spinout. Only missing one more after this one I believe
