    I would think that he would keep making these for a long, long time.

    As soon as I get the Nonnef Sideswipe parts, I'm going to either dremel or sand that peg handle off. I don't like it either. If the plastic looks off colored, I'll just face it downward or put some paint on it.

    No seriously, it's amazing just how much these parts alone make Siege Sideswipe so much better.

    Ordered the white launcher set a while ago and I loved it. I ordered a set of Reprolabels after having it in hand, the labels change the figure enough where the white looks off. Which surprises the heck out of me since I like the all white launcher on the MP figure. When Nonnef put up the jetback I ordered a black set with it and I think it complements the figure much better. Still glad I have both so I can switch them if I want to, but the labels almost forced me to have the black launcher. Guess that just means I need to order another Sideswipe :)

    That's how I feel about a lot of Nonnef's products. I was a big fan after the CW hip ratchets came out. I loved the Menasor chest adapter and Superion antenna. Lately, it was the Swoop wing extensions.

    Wow. I cannot oversell the Sideswipe kits. Cannot.
    They look, and feel, great.
    The peg on the backpack is horrendously stressed, though. I'm hoping hot water will alleviate the stress.
    The red isn't a perfect match, but darn close and the white is stunning. It's a shinier plastic than Hasbro's, but he actually matched the creamy color. Like...how? How did he do that???

    That said, $18.00 shipped is a bit much for what you get. I'm a little underwhelmed by the pricing to what you get ratio. I know inflation is an issue, but this is a bit overpriced for what you're getting. I think he could've made a spoiler for vehicle mode (only mod missing from this figure to make him truly G1). That said, the kit is nice and I'm glad I bought it. I skipped Hound, because I'm not a big fan of the pistol (G1 accurate, though), and the missile isn't worth it with all of the extraneous parts like the hands which I'll never use.

    I'll just paint up Sideswipe's factory missile (which does fit the launcher) and call it a day. *shrugs* win/win, really.

    The slot on the side of G2 Sideswipe might take a grenade mounting I'd say.

    Yes I'd like a Black Launcher with a red missile too - ideally with a silver collar on the launcher. that Plain white was never a good look on the cartoon.

    I was looking at my shelf and I got to thinking - right who is still missing a gun... well some of the Monsterbots could do with a decent weapon and also Kickback lacks a decent pistol - as indeed do all of the Insecticons. Cosmos could do with a comedy Laser Pistol I guess.

    I also had to smile as one of the most obvious lacks to me was on a 3rd party item which is Mech fans toys Huffer - not having a pistol & as he doesn't have 5mm holes in his hand he can't easily borrow one.

    I agree! The figure was already terrific, but after I attached the Nonnef bits the thing is close to perfection. This is exactly why I love third party stuff.

    Likewise, Cosmos got a gun that was included in the Legends weapon pack.
    Don't remember which gun goes with who exactly.. but I remember Cosmos was one of them specifically. It wasn't a comical laser pistol though..
    And this pack is also still available. :)

    I'm still hoping against rapidly dwindling hope he may one day release some much-needed wrist swivels for TR Twinferno.

    i doubt thatll ever happen as it would necessitate completely new arms, and that was also 2 lines ago. he doesnt usually go back that far unless a current release warrants it (like the insecticon or legends weapon packs)

    Yeah I’m still bummed about the Overlord set he teased that never happened. I don’t know what it would have included but I’d have bought it.
