Between the video and these photos, I'm convinced. Maybe I'll ask for him for Xmas; I'm sure some in the family likes me enough to get it for me... I hope.

Besides, how can I say now to that killer alt mode?!?

That last picture is EPIC! I'll definitely be stealing that for my display...only with a gun in his left hand while charging! Great coverage of MP Sideswipe all around! :BOWDOWN:

I love when people post comparison photos and not include the one everyone is asking about, Universe 2.0 Sideswipe or at the very least his mold mates. That being said, he looks amazing. I'm so glad I preordered him.

Not into buying takara MP's. He looks great, I think Hasbro will release him. But why the Sideswipe news spam, have they released Soundwave already? First release one, then announce the next. I have the feeling if we see something a year later you'll be able to get it.

An undeniably beautiful figure. :APPLAUSE: I REALLY don't want to get it. :sad: Cus, I know, that if I get MP -12 Sideswipe, then I'll want a MP-10 Optimus Prime to go with him. (After seeing these picture I really want MP figures of Megatron (Smaller to scale of course), Ironhide and Ratchet (would love for some mid sized bots.) and Arcee and/or Elita 1 (Neither really did get a proper G1 toy to begin with and would love to to see some fembots in MP form.)

wow... so freakin TINY!
I think I'll pass on him, hopefully Hasbro will release him here for half the price, that's what he's worth... if the body was metal like the G1 than the 90 dollar price tag I've seen will be worth it, I'll stick to my $20 Alternator for now... ;)

I heard rumors that iGear will be releasing a down sized "Megatron" soon... so that should be cool! I wanted the mp megs but I've read about the rust problems and he looks odd with his skeleton legs... haha

I actually like the size, big isn't always better, and the scale is actually quite spot on with regards to the original figures and cartoon. You can easily get this guy for 70$ and not 90$ as well...

Wow...that does look pretty sweet!! But I've got to believe that hasbro will release a version of him. They've pretty much released every MP mold except megs in the us right? he's gonna show up at some point...maybe a year and a half down the line...but I can wait

I'll take the future 40$ version from Hasbro, No metal, and no rubber = what the hell is the point of paying for a Takara version.

I understand the whole scale thing... but I'm just asking for a bit better quality, some metal, not just the feet, rubber tires (I know rubber can go bad but look at the g1 figures, still going strong!) and some other things, but it's all good, I'm sure Hasbro will release it here as a Duo pack with Red Alert for 89.99! :lol:

I agree with you, I don't care for metal on these toys, but compare MP Optimus to this guy, he has rubber tires, solid legs (not hollow), better articulation........ All around the previous MP figures do not seem as cheap, as Sideswipe and Red Alert although MP Soundwave looks like he is of similar built quality to the previous MP molds.

The toy looks great. It really looks awesome. However, in my opinion it's still too small when compared with MP-10 Convoy. Should've been about an inch or 2 taller.

I agree. Kind of measures up in-between Bumblebee and himself in the cartoon. He's still very Jessica Alba though.

I keep thinking that G1 Sideswipe came up to Optimus Prime's chest, but even the G1 toys have basically the same proportions as these Masterpiece figures do, which is weird because G1 Sideswipe and G1 Optimus Prime look great together but Masterpiece Sideswipe and Masterpiece Convoy look off. Weird.

:D
He is pretty small for what I consider a Masterpiece but I am still in 'old school' mindset regarding the Masterpiece line, that they should be huge like MP-01!!
He fits perfectly alongside the Alternator/Binaltech range, that seems to be the more fitting home for him in my opinion.
I dont own the new MP Prime for scaling unfortunately. He is approx an inch and half taller than Classics Sideswipe/Alert.

I have a faulty version I think, as his his torso has been pinned the wrong way around to his waist, so I cant complete his transformation correctly! :sad:
I have contacted the China based seller 366offer with my concerns, so they emailed me saying this is the most extreme problem they had heard, this month!
I have to send them pictures which they will forward to their 'warehouse' for examination?
His head has been poorly glued also, so that is falling apart also!
I guess by trying to save money and cut corners, you get what you pay for! :-(
