    I can see them redoing the sideswipe again with the spoiler later after this product sells out... And why wouldn't they take advantage of us fans?

    Yeah, that seems like the most logical explanation.

    We did just have a new Magnaboss confirmed in the Leak thread :p

    They do, ONLY if the price drops AFTER you’ve ordered...not before.

    I want Hasbro to fire the person that thought mixing these BW and G1 characters in two packs was a good idea.

    If the character was not in the original BW show I don't want them. They could have at least used popular characters like Terrorsaur or Tarantualus if they needed to do a crossover 2 pack, which they did not need to do.

    Sideswipe looks exactly the same, just a lighter shade of red, and maybe a bit smoother. I\'ll probably just stick with getting the siege one instead.

    And that first one is RiD2015 Sideswipe....which would have been awesome to see crossover.

    Goddamnit.

    The g1 toys didn't match because they came from different lines. The vehicles are supposed to match besides sunstreaker having modded chrome motor parts above the trunk because both the same model Lambo so yes they should match. Robot modes again don't match cause they in pre G1 were originally not from the same toy line. That's reflected properly by the MPs, G1 show, and by this version of Sideswipe and ER Sunstreaker.

    Using the G1 toys car modes to show how they're not supposed to match is a bad example if you know the history of those molds. Use the G1 toy bot modes, show models etc.

    If all you want is a Sideswipe with a spoiler why would you buy one without?

    Nobody forces you to buy any of these.

    I like it. Don't have a Sideswipe yet, so that's that. Been meaning to pick up an Airrazor, but I love that headsculpt on Skywarp so much more. Ordered once the Amazon price goes back down to normal.

    I like Earth mode Sideswipe fine. A shame they weren't able to recolor the black chunks on his car mode (all the Earthrise remolds suffer from that vestigial Siege DNA). Everything else about him I pretty much like (don't care about the missing spoiler).

    This is also gonna make me annoyed to not have an Earth-mode Red Alert (and Hound as well, but specifically Red Alert in this case). I hope he's planned for release through some channel.

    Actually it makes me sad that ALL the Sideswipe repaints had the Cybertronian mold. I'd rather have Earth versions of Tigertrack, Deep Cover, and G2 Sideswipe as well. But Red Alert is the one that I feel is kind of a must.

    Pretty sure the shoulder hinges are unpaintable plastic, and if you traded that sprue for red, then you'd also wind up with red hands and hip joints.

    ??? Huh? The molds that would become Sideswipe and Sunstreaker both came from Diaclone, they just didn't match because the Sunstreaker one was the first one designed for the Car Robots subline of Diaclone while the Sideswipe one came later in the line. The Sunstreaker mold was No. 1 Countach LP500S, while the Sideswipe mold was No. 15 New Countach LP500S.

    I somewhat agree. I have 0 problem with them acknowledging BWII, but lord knows if they did an Armada line and put nobodies in the two packs some mainstays are missing id be mad.

    Welcome to the world of cross-sells and up-selling.

    Certainly not a new practice for the brand. Remember the Classics Ultra Magnus nobody wanted (until Fansproject rocked the boat with one of the first high-quality 3rd Party upgrade kits on the market), but were forced to buy to get Skywarp?

    The point is, that despite Sunstreaker being less accurate in car mode (and yellow, and chrome, and turbocharged)----he and Sideswipe were both based on the same ultra-rare variant of Countach, and so any modern molds of them should be nigh-identical in car mode----see their MP versions.

    I also hope they use this mold for Clampdown, but I would've taken him in Siege form too, even though he worked for the Tokyo police force.

    So yeah, I'm on the same boat as the people who wanted Sideswipe and Sunstreaker to have a spoiler, but it's not a big deal. I waited for them to do an ER Sideswipe, and here we go. Still gotta pre-order Mirage lol :D , and hopefully an Earth mode Hound is somewhere around the corner too.

    Yeah, sure. I was just baffled by saying a particular misconception I'd never heard before.
