    Anyone see similarities between ROTF Sideswipe and IDW Drift? Particularly in the shoulders and the silhouette of the head, maybe in the shape of the alt mode too. And his blade arms are kinda like Drift's super ninja swords. I'm not saying they're exactly the same or anything crazy, just wondering if anyone else sees it.

    That thought had crossed my mind as well. But I think it's just a coincidence.

    Well, I didnt assume it was intentional either.

    I knew I wasn't the only one who thought RoTF Sideswipe looked like Drift.

    Do not even mention Sideswipe and Drift together. You cannot compare a uber awesome Transformer that has 3 swords to one that only has only 2....
