Ah thank you!!
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.
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.
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.
Hi Guys, COVID-19 lock down was spent on my Siege SideSwipe project...
Go see my Fan Fiction Page to see my mods and learn why SideSwipe had a rear wing back on Cybertron.
SIEGE SIDESWIPE FAN FICTION BY MLZ
I posted this in Radicons customs but I decided to fix my complaints about Siege Sideswipe by making an MP-12+ Anime Color inspired version.
Go Better Studio GX-07 Tail fins for WFC Siege Sideswipe & Red Alert to complete the look.
They are nice.
Love this figure/overall mold. But, I can't unsee the fact that his wheel rims look exactly like starfish.
I picked up Siege Sideswipe in Smyths and he's great. Looks great in both modes, enjoyable transformation and feels well built. I had to look through a couple copies on the shelf until I found one without paint blotches on the bonnet or face. He and Spinister are probably two of the best Siege figures.
Anyone got the Matrix Workshop upgrade kits?
I took off the battle damage on the shins and waist. I actually took the shins off (removing the pins is easier using a spring loaded centre punch) and put them in some 99% alcohol in a little jar in a sonic cleaner for 5 mins. The silver came off in about 5 mins. In addition to cotton buds, a microfibre cloth is also good.
Oooo, very nice.
I wish they done a clean Sideswipe somewhere.
You considered taking a Netflix Sideswipe back to the grey base?
Anybody else noticing his feet make him lean forward, or is that just my G2 variant?
