    I'll pass on Swerve (already have like... three or four different Swerves in my collection...), but Gears is so bought. I'm liking a lot of these repaints we're getting from the first movie line. It just seems like they're being a lot more creative this time around with them.

    Edit: Darn... just noticed that Swerve has a new head... might decide to get him now...

    Lmao, Swerve is chronically intoxicated? :lol 

    Don't like Gears. Don't like his car decals, the fact that the translucent windows are purple but his painted window blue, and the fact that his robot mode has entirely different colored parts.

    Is this the first Gears we've gotten since G1?

    So Swerve gets the colour that Sideswipe should have gotten in the 1st place?!? I like the gears homage. I didn't get this mould last time around so will happily pick this one up. :thumbs2: 

    Also notice Arcee on the box there as well... and I am not hateing her design so much

    Thought they'd release a G1 color scheme for Sideswipe same as they did for Starscream and Ratchet.

    Are these general releases or exclusives? Hopefully this Swerve is easier to come by than his Alternator incarnation, cause he is SO bought. Gears...eh, maybe.

    These are both bought, but I hope Reprolabels makes roadrage style decals for swerve, I much prefer my badly driver red corvettes to be called Roadrage.

    Hmm... interesting. Yes to both! BOUGHT. :p 
    New head = new character. Swerve = the "real" Sideswipe. Duh. :rock  :bay

    Yea that was my reaction too. I look at it this way. I'm not buying the silver one. I'll just buy the red one and call it Sideswipe.
    Why? Because silver is dumb, I am tired of it. It's just a boring color, and Sideswipe is far from boring.

    I already bought the silver Sideswipe even though I hate the silver, but I'm definitely going to grab that Swerve. I love the red.
    I still can't believe they made both Sideswipe and Sideways silver. Boggles the mind.
    Also, that Gears is great looking too. I never got the black version of that mold last time around.
