    Currently I own TE-01 Optimus Prime, Infinite Transformation MP36 KO and recently purchased Badcube's Steamroll (Sideswipe).

    I guess obvious next figure would be a Decepticon of some kind.

    Price range is up to $100.

    The masterpiece one, either Takara or Hasbro would be fine.

    Try out one of the xtransbots stunticons. They should be a good match size wise for that sideswipe. Affordable as well. Their crackup is a steal at $50

    What are you talking about? I paid $83 shipped for Steamroll. Shipping costs are not that high unless you want to pay for special shipping.

    Its a real shame they went with such a ugly color. Slightly off white would have been so much nicer.

    I personally like the color, looks good in person. The toy version looks good too. He poses great, I'm extremely happy fiddling with him

    Why the original? Isn't the most recent one more toon accurate in terms of finish?

    I would like to see Fans Toys make a Punch-Counterpunch but we will see a CGI render tomorrow, not see the release until 2035!!

    Or, we could just let X-transbots make it...just saying!!

    sure its toon accurate..but i personally dont think toon = good looking. the OG mp wheeljack has more charm and looks like a real car.

    Sounds like it just boils down to the aesthetic you prefer. It's a great mold, I have all 3 versions (3rd being what ever they ended up naming the diaclone Marlboro- Exhaust, maybe)
