Sideswipe's not really that interesting, is he? Hound I can totally appreciate as a more interesting TF, but Sideswipe always just seemed so frightfully dull.

Don't get me wrong I'm glad to see him finally make a comics appearance, it just does not seem like a big deal--I guess I just assumed he'd show up eventually as a supporting character. Cannon fodder, warrior, sarcastic speedster, but used as a main foil to Galvatron, doesn't seem right. However, that is not stated, so who knows, maybe he is just a supporting cast member.
I guess the group wondering why Sunstreaker, but no Sideswipe was larger than I thought. ..
Well, most people did think it was odd to have one without the other. But who knows, maybe they aren't even brothers in this continuity, although I really did like the concept of mitotic spark twins that was put forth to explain sibling relationships back in the DW days.

I've been pissed that Sideswipe hasn't shown up yet. That was my first-ever Transformer, and since the IDW launch it's been akward that there's been a Sunstreaker but not a Sideswipe.

I'm a big Sideswipe fan, but he's never really had a lot of character to him. Hound would have been a bigger ice breaker to me. Maybe Sideswipe will lead a blazing assult to find Sunstreaker in some way or another.

Perhaps at the end, he'll find out what happened to Streaker on Earth and leave to find retribution, leading to an appearance in Devestation.
Personally, I'm indifferent about him. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the guy, I'm just more stoked about a spotlight on Galvatron. That means we get to hear what makes him tick. After all, like someone said, Sideswipe is no match for Galvy. I hope Galvatron crushes Sideswipe like an Insecticon.
