I'll keep this short since we all know the Sideswipe mold by now. Pure awesome. Sideswipe was a top-tier figure back in his original G1 days, and likewise he's a top-tier reissue. Getting a minty fresh Sideswipe would be good enough, but Hasbro went the extra mile and made improvements to the original deco. Yup. Everything that used to be a factory sticker is now a permanent paint app. This includes car headlights, car door handles, and the black area on the roof. On top of that, the original had unpainted eyes. Hasbro went and painted the reissue's eyes a light blue to match the cartoon. It looks fantastic. The only downside is that the car's hood ornament sticker is now some generic looking star thing...but I guess you can't expect the real Countach hood ornament in this day and age. I just left the sticker off for when I can get a reprolabel set. Anyway, I couldn't be happier. My '84 Sideswipe is in sad, sad shape (although I still love him ). It feels great to have one in brand new condition with improvements to boot. Highly recommended.
