    seeing a lot of criticism for the Kingdom version in the same breath as praising the original with a lot of add-ons.

    So, they remold the hood section only and call it the "Earth mode" while leaving off the spoiler that even the MP has and also removing ports that allowed for the upgrade kit spoiler.

    Another case of "same damn toy but worse".
    Like ER Megatron.

    Digging the colors on Skywarp, I like them more than Air Razor’s. Sideswipe looks good, but I’m happy with the siege version too. The tempting portion is the weapons; I could lend those to the siege figure

    The hood section only? Dude the whole car has been reshelled, at least use your eyes before criticizing it.

    I don't care how the legs work. Main point that others have mentioned is they left off a primary part of his actual Earth mode.
    Ok. I was wrong.
    Still looks like it belongs on Cybertron.

    When Sideswipe transforms into his car mode, he will become...

    Machine Robo Supercar / Gobot Turbo!

    :eek: :p

    Well gotta remember it’s hard to look at the toy when you’re head is tilted up so far

    Well it’s a transformation so probably should since it hinders the ability to have a spoiler and primary part of the earth mode? Shyeah. okay. Whatever you say. If that’s not being dramatic I don’t know what is

    Already admitted I was wrong.
    If the legs on this transform differently to the Siege toy, then fine.
    But if they don't, others have mentioned the upgrade kit spoiler didn't hinder anything.

    I mean it's certainly not impossible. But they're willing to make a brand new mold for Tigatron who was literally a Cheetor repaint so even if Silverbolt could get away with it... it's more likely we'll see a new mold later down the line. Especially since, at least in her original form, Blackarachnia was a good bit shorter than Birdog.

    I dunno if it was a big enough difference for him to be a Voyager...but who knows. Maybe they want to ensure he's big enough to hold the KD Blackarachnia figure and go from there.

    That couldn't have *possibly* sounded clever in your head.

    Two deluxe molds for over fiddy bucks is a bit much.

    MaxyWarp is... pretty much what I expected, though I wasn't sure if he'd get the bird headdress. Not too exciting, though it really demonstrates how Airazor could've used a little more paint and contrast, especially on birdy mode.

    Sideswipe is okay. A spoiler would help the look of the car mode, but that might get in the way of the knee joints. Of all the Cybertronian-to Earth updates and remolds, this seems like the most subtle difference, where you might need to squint a bit to quickly discern the two versions. It looks nice, but hardly exciting to anyone who already has the Siege version IMO.

    Well since Pulse is sold out I had to bite on Amazon's nasty $53 price tag. While Sideswipe is passable, bald eagle Skywarp is irresistible.

    See, that's what I was thinking too. Gorgeous iteration of the Countach.
