    I was taking some of my previous Sideswipe mold dudes out for a spin and this guy is such a disappointment in comparison. The siege one had that great color and many of the others have great paint and this dude has that cheap red plastic like they used on Inferno and the Combiner Wars figs. Bleh.

    Thanks for confirming. I absolutely love the Siege mold and all its recolours and remolds. This one looked to be a step back, so I’ve passed so far. Sounds like a good decision.

    I thought he has good looking red colored plastic.

    I haven't converted him yet, but I largely like the way my ER Sideswipe looks, and the joints seem fine. I don't have the Siege version,, but I do have two other figures in the Siege mould - Red Alert and Deep Cover, the original groovy black with blue bits, version. I don't think I can really fault either mould.

    The mold is fine - ER Red Alert is really nice. This is just the plastic they pull out when they want to go cheap. It's very soft.

    Siege Sideswipe is mostly painted red, is why.

    As far as bare red plastic goes, the Kingdom version is pretty good. But bright red ABS plastic always has slight translucency issues.

    Very smart! I had to pass on the $50 BW Megatron, $50 T-Wrecks, and $50 Optimus Primal. That money would be better spent on SG and the Golden Disk collection.

    i spent most of my money “saved” on Masters of the Universe Origins. I only discovered the line 3 months ago but I already have all figures and vehicles in the line. Besides Transformers my first love as a kid growing up as a kid in the 1980s was He-Man. I was out of collecting MOTU for a long time. It felt good buying my first Masters of the Universe figure since 1987 and now I can’t stop.

    Money well spent!

    I have an 8-year-old daughter who has had the pleasure of growing up watching my MOTU and She-Ra DVDs and playing with the MOTU Classics figures. Because of her, I watched the entire series of the new She-Ra Princesses of Power, and was pleasantly surprised at what an amazing show it was!
