    They made the figure you wanted but are really slimy for asking too high MSRP? I understand these two packs aren’t ideal but it seems like a good compromise in comparison to no one getting anything.

    Yeah, there's no reason their front ends shouldn't be identical, IMO.

    I mean, we knew at the time earth lines were in the future. While I agree for the most part, I liked the Cybertron modes at the time, the earth modes just feel better engineered. I expected earth modes at the time, but just decided the cybertronian modes were good enough.

    It was for me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ To each their own!

    (seriously though, it's a light jab at all the third party upgrade kits that tried to make Siege Sideswipe into an Earth mode)

    Preordered on Amazon because I need an earth mode Sideswipe but why am I paying $53 for two deluxes? Neither of them are original molds and neither have extra paint apps or accessories. Seems $13 overpriced :( 

    Skywarp will be for sale as soon as it comes in, if anyone is interested

    Nice recolor for sure (I’m not seeing any major remolds, but haven’t scrutinized in detail) but Siege Sideswipe was definitely of the “close enough” variety as far as his car mode went.

    I find it funny they didn't even change the wheels, you could make Kingdom Sideswipe out of Siege Sideswipe.

    I don't really care that much because I wasn't planning to get Sideswipe anyway, but just in case Hasbro reads this, I really hate how they are packaging G1 bots with BW bots. It's cool for people that collect both, I guess. But for me, if I happened to be in a store and I saw Sideswipe I might consider picking him up, but if he's packaged with a BW character and costs more than a standard deluxe I wouldn't bother. If they don't think either character will sell well in general release they should just make them Selects releases. My 2 Bitcoin.

    Sideswipe is SUCH a nice improvement! Many new parts to go from Cybertron to Earth mode, all his weapons, and nice crisp colors too. I'll keep both!

    I like to think Maximal Skywarp was originally heroic Decepticon Skywarp from Shattered Glass. Heroic Decepticon Skywarp’s personality is just what Maximal Skywarp’s is on the show.
