    Bought this one tonight. Sideswipe was the first Transformers you I got back in ‘84 and I’ve waited a long time for a good version. He’s pretty awesome in hand though I am concerned about his chest tabbing.

    Hi. Sorry for bothering you, could you possibly send me the link to that form? Does it work outside US? I have serious issue with my Siege Starscream (missing transparent part that becomes cockpit in tetrajet mode) and seller said he can ship missing part, but I have to cover shipping costs (this was my last order from KaPowToys :/).

    Sideswipe is one of my favorite deluxes ever. Brilliant bot mode and a cool altmode.

    I cant wait to get red alert. We need sunstreaker too

    Ok, one minor nit pick: I wish the wheels were pinned. He’s using that same plug in wheels set up that I’ve seen fall apart on toys like Fall of Cybertron Jazz. So that’s a bummer and means he could have trouble in the long run.

    I really hope we get a new-mould Sunstreaker with this sleek alt mode and a proper Sunstreaker 'bot mode.

    After purchased and owning Sideswipe for 2 weeks, I can definitely say that Siege Sideswipe is quite a good Deluxe figure. However, I have some minor gripes about this figure.

    Pros:
    • Straightforward, effective transformation into either mode.
    • Good paint job.
    • Little to no kibble in bot mode.
    • Good looking bot mode.
    • Good articulation,and the inclusion of ankle tile is nice.
    • Fun to pose and play with.
    Cons:
    • The included weapons are kinda boring and underwhelming.
    • Maybe it just my copy, but the waist section barely tabs into place in robot mode when I get this figure out of packaging. I fixed it by thicken the tab with some superglue, but still annoying.
    • The inclusion of wrist swivel will be ideal.

    The second issue is quite common, probably it's design flaw, because it seems every piece of this figure is affected - if not out of the box, the tab will wear down after few transformations.

    I very much dig this mold and it would be nice if they re-tooled this into a Hot Rod- something better than the TR and PotP ones.

    Got him today and I really LOVE his alt mode, sleek and cool car!

    But is there any other way to store the weapon? I kinda hate attaching it on his top/side port, since it looks kinda silly.

    I bought Siege sideswipe. His weapon is okay. But, I still want sideswipe's original gun like his G1 toy and Masterpiece. Now, I have two Sideswipes.
