    All of the car parts except the wheels are remolded. What else does he need?

    When I saw the pictures of Kingdom Sideswipe I was initially disappointed -especially with no spoiler. However, when I saw the side by side comparison with Siege Sideswipe, it is obviously that the entire Kingdom Sideswipe car was remolded (8 parts). I think part of the problem is that Siege Sideswipe alt-mode already looks similar to an earth mode.

    I’d like Sideswipe to be remolded into other cars, such as the G2 GoBots / RiD’01 Spychangers.

    Both look excellent. Initially wasn't too impressed with Sideswipe's vehicle mode but it's growing on me and the base tooling is one of my all time favourite Deluxe class Transformers so this was never not getting bought.

    Fucking this. The mold is perfect for the Spychangers.

    I really like the look of Sideswipe but I can't help being disappointed about that unsightly black block of plastic on the side of the alt mode. Wish that had either been molded or painted red

    I hope Sideswipe doesn't suffer from the two tone paint job (yellow paint vs yellow plastic on Sunstreaker, albeit minimal). But its noticeable up front. Just stick with one red tone color.

    We're getting 3.67 Siege Sideswipe molds every year including Kingdom Red Alert

    You're giving Hasbro too many ideas...

    Honestly, I'd be down. It's a solid mold, and the Autobots have always lacked their own seeker. So long as they do the proper remolding for any Spychangers and not a straight repaint, I'd be okay with them getting made.

    Plus, maybe they'll actually give G1 Sideswipe some semblance of a personality to make him stand out like Starscream :p

    R.E.V. (Aka Eagle Killer)/Gobots Optimus is already a Lamborghini with a Sideswipe style head (in toy form for both anyway).

    I think R.E.V.'s decals would look sweet on this mold and if they decided to do Gobots Optimus then I'd advocate doing it with the Japanese release's T-logo on the chest to differentiate from Sideswipe.

    That is the risk they take waiting for sales/price drops.
