Yes, sorry about that.
Peaugh's post clarified it for me.

ROTF toys are looking more promising. i dont know why but for some crazy reason in my mind the top half looks like a movie-esque version of cybertron hot-shot.
It looks really good, but Sideswipe should be RED!!! I don't want another silver TF after poor Jazz. His toy was molded in tha gawd-awful swirly filled gray plastic. The Premium was better, but chips. And Sideswipe should be RED in color. And too bad no Sunstreaker bro to team up with.
Not G1, movie.
erm, no, but it's heavily based on G1 just like pretty much every series.
or the one with the same name released 3 months ago???
really, i'm not sussed one way or the other, but i think it's a little harsh cutting down everyone who wants it in red ~ personally, i'd take any color ~ i'm not feeling the silver for the same reason i didn't care for 07 movie Jazz ~ not much contrast between "bot parts" and "car parts", makes him flat and obscures the details... the red digibash in this thread made him look tons better (blue or yellow'd work too IMHO)
...on the flipside, just being Red really doesn't make him resemble "Sideswipe" any more strongly since their isn't much for design cues there ala 07 Prime or Jazz...
Wish I could quote on this thing, but I agree with darth rodimus. This is the movie not G1..now granted its supposed to be G1 based, but there are going to be differences. I'm a hardcore G1er too, but I'm very happy with the direction they've gone with the movies.
Little higher res
red...RED! the color of sex is red!!!!....ok sorry kinky boots was just on BBC lol
Its more like Bay saying, "okay we have this Autobot - its got to be this make of car and this color - now what name should we assign to it?"
He's a wonderful robot and car, I just wish he was red or black just because silver is rather dull.
If I buy a toy, it will be the repaint.
I agree, Color needed! There are to many gray and silver bots. We need some color here!!!!
wow they have officially ruined my favorite transformers character well ill be paying to see sumething else when i go to c this movie
If you're so sensitive about this, I'm surprised you made it past Armada.
This Sideswipe is clearly not made of plastic. He is made of pure, distilled awesome. So bought!
Silverstreak would have been such a better name... no color/brother issues.
see dont get me wrong i hated that one to but at least he didnt look like he was from some zombie movie this one looks like hes gunna kill us and hes got all that jagged crap on him and o yea HES NOT RED
Just admit that is your biggest peave about this design. It's not like his name is RedSwipe.
This guy looks awesome... Between the huge shoulders, tough face, weapons, narrow waste, rollerfeet, and extra cool car mode, I bet he'll be the new young hero of the movie.
Can't wait to get him, and I REALLY hope he gets a blue Tracks repaint...thats an auto buy.
ok first of all if ur gunna re do sumething you should do it write not half assed second theres a couple things that are wrong not just his color 1.hes not a lambo 2.he doesnt look like a good guy 3. he looks like hes from alien 4.his design looks nothing like sideswipe 5. his face is god aweful would u like more
