Deluxe-class Autobot Sideswipe

NIce review

I think this is the best of the deluxe class toys from the line this year. It was the first one I bought, and I'm disappointed he had so little screen time in the film. I too think he was way to close to Jazz in appearance and demeanor. The red repaint is much more striking, not sure why they went with the more mundane silver in the movie.

Dude- I'm one of those who

Dude- I'm one of those who believes that Jolt got shafted the most in "RotF" for screen-time.

I don't plan to cover any repaints of Sideswipe thus-far.

For the next movie, I hope they don't give some top-of-the-line/concept cars for alt modes of new characters. I mean, it's like they're trying to make "futuristic" alt modes for all these robots, when they're supposed to be blending in! I know part of that is GM's arrangements with Paramount Pictures, and that using their brands in-bulk saves a crap-load of money for the film's production; I get that, but a little variety would be nice.

Sleek

I agree. The mech-alive gimmicks are cool, the poseablitiy is awesome, love the moving hydrolics on his legs, and I love the blade system. Not a fan of the movie toys but this was one I knew I needed to have. And yes. I like to pretend it's jazz too. I had hopes for the alliance ver but with so much kibble coming off his back (WAY more than this ver, my only dislike) I got way turned off.

Human Alliance toys

Right now, the only Human Alliance I'm planning on getting is Skids, and mostly because he has one of the better robot modes, and comes with a poorly-designed new version of Arcee. (Well, technically it's Chromia, but has Arcee's coloring.) I had wanted HA Sideswipe, but some of the details/features and his excessive kibble in back turned me off enough. I don't need another Bumblebee, and Mudflap doesn't look that good in robot mode unlike his brother.

Agreed. Very tough to get

Agreed. Very tough to get what we want in this line. Too many compromises. That's why I'm so in love with the TF Animated figs. They nail the mark on so many of their on-screen counterparts... very satisfying. :)

Considering how expensive

Considering how expensive the HAs are,the only one I'm getting is the one with Tuturro since he was my favorite character.

That would be HA

That would be HA Mudflap.

From what I hear Turturro's talents were wasted on Bayformers... I agree.
