    Hilliard-Rome Target had the Cyberverse Deluxe Cheetor wave, but minus the Cheetor. Guess I got there late.

    Finally got to fiddle with my Sideswipe this morning and I've got to be honest, I'm disappointed. The left hand is so loose that the slightest motion makes the hand move and the toes/heel on the left foot move around at the slightest provocation too, so he can't stay standing up for long. On top of that, trying to get everything to line up and tab together properly in alt mode without untabbing somewhere else seems almost impossible, even after half a dozen attempts at transforming him.

    My Sideswipe has the same issue on the Right Hand and my Rear fenders paint apps are sorta messed up…Also, tabbing the car together is sorta of a disaster

    My Sideswipe sucks. I think I'll be sticking with my modified Siege version.

    Wait who’s talking about which Sideswipe here? Kingdom or SS78?

    Kingdom. I can't speak for them but I assume they're talking about the Kingdom version because he has joint problems.

    Gotcha. My Kingdom version seems fine, the problem one was my SS78 that had unflushed pins in the feet so the foot panels flopped around. I managed to fix it by squeezing the pinhead with some pliers. Other than that slight fix both of my Sideswipes seem to be in good shape

    That’s too bad about folks Sideswipe. Mine has pretty smooth joints but nothing terribly loose. Mine did have a groove carved into the roof paint so I returned it to Amazon and the second one has better paint and joints are decent.
    Skywarp does feel a bit cheap to me sadly, I don’t think I’ll be keeping him as originally planned

    I thought they were talking about SS78... But I could be wrong.

    As for Kingdom, the left knee of my Sideswipe was loose, but top coat fixed that up more than enough. He's definitely not as sturdy feeling as Red Alert is.

    Oh, crap! My apologies. Well, then... If SS78 is that bad, maybe I'll skip him. After K Tracks, Mirage, and Sideswipe, I've had my fill of any version of a character having a subpar figure. I'm burnt out on that.

    I personally haven't had a lot of issues with mine, but It's hard to make a perfect figure that stands real well when his accurate design is wheels for feet.

    The case and wave breakdowns of next years figures has been posted in another thread here. Figured i'd post it here for those of us who would miss it otherwise.
