    That's the worst f*ckin' Sideswipe I've ever seen.

    To be fair, they probably put these together at short notice, and Sideswipe and Sunstreaker were famously swapped over by accident (tech specs describe the other bot's appearance)

    A new head on Swipe would have been nice mind

    You've obviously never seen Armada :p .

    I'm psyched for Sideswipe personally, I think his ability is going to be very useful, especially if combined with Slug charging at the same target a second later.

    I'd like a CW Sideswipe like that in toy form (but with a new head.)

    At least he's out. They've been known to tweak models, so maybe we'll get a redesign of Sideswipe once they hear the backlash. I'm also happy that they have an event to keep us busy while they iron out the Swoop/Scourge issue. Plus, double XP gives us a chance to use those bots that aren't quite on the level and get them ready for B, C, and D squads.

    So I'm noticing that lately the Events have mostly been alliance based. This one doesn't look like it will be a major issue, but I do like when events give you the option to roll solo.

    Don't worry.

    I'm sure the Sideswipe / Viper crystal will be available for small sack of Cybercoins after the event.

    :lol

    Random question, but did they just shrink the Orbital Strike attack area again?

    The icon has changed, and I just used it in a spot where it should have hit more targets than it seemed to.

    If it has, then good. Too many times to I get attacked by Mixmasters and too many times have they wiped out 5 buildings in one shot.

    This. I refuse to believe they couldn't have whipped up at the very least a decent head and chest on short notice. His chest is just the hood of a car... it's a big block!

    They discovered the bug overnight last night and the event is tomorrow. I highly doubt they could redesign the head and re-rig the chest and transformation entirely in 24 hours. It takes much longer than anyone here seems to realize. I have a feeling he'll get an update to a more accurate design soon enough and Sunstreaker is just the base model they were using as they were likely in the process of still designing Sideswipe when the bug was discovered.

    Why are they calling Diaclone Sunstreaker Sideswipe?

    So apparently while spending an obscene amount of money on this game doesn't guarantee a damn thing (I have precious few powerful characters), it does get you recognized as a VIP, which nets some free stuff. I got a free 3-star Jumpstream, 20 premium crystals and decent amount of A and E for later use.

    Oh and I did splurge and bought an Arcee crystal since she's literally the only character I'm missing in some fashion and what did I get? A damn 2-star Prowl. Ask me how I feel about that.

    And he turns into a Powerglide repaint/Cobra Rattler!

    I wonder if Space Ape has access to the GI Joe IP, or if they even realize they included a crossover character.

    Sideswipe?

    I find it funny how Sideswipe is literally a red Sunstreaker, which makes me laugh because if Hasbro did a Sideswipe for CW it'd look EXACTLY like that....That's what I think anyway...
