But don't forget that there IS a G1 Side Burn now, so SG Side Burn isn't technically a non-G1 SG character anymore. ;)

However, SG Side Burn came before G1 Side Burn. Also, his body is a repurposing of Universe RiD Side Burn. Besides, while Jetstorm is technically a G1 character's counterpart, all them are the odd-man out in their factions. (Except for Jetstorm's lack of one.) :-?
Retcons aren't anything new to this franchise. ;)

Plus, technically, RiD Side Burn's Japanese counterpart (who thus also shares his body design), Speedbreaker, is a G1 character. :-B


Before, or after the great retcon aka "shoehorn-everything-into-one-single-continuity"?

Before.

That color scheme looks great on the Jazz mold. If only they were releasing this in stores, I'd be all over this.

So if his color scheme used to be black, grey, and pink - why is it now blue and yellow?

See you are thinking too hard about it. Shattered Glass NOW simply means "wrong colors". The SG color wheel has been thrown out. Shattered Glass actually comes from the latin: Shate Gas. Which is when one has a bowel movement on his design work. LOL :lol: I kid.

Because this isn't the SG verison of G1 Treadshot, but rather, it is the SG version of Universe (2003) Treadshot.

...who was a redeco of Armada Side Swipe, hence why SG Treadshot uses Armada Side Swipe's colors.
