Decent progress but.. as cool as Sideswipe could be I really don't see any sort of canon repaintability. An Ironhide mold would have been a better option, considering we also have the sportscars in Jazz and Bumblebee. I really feel like Hasbro is just going to deviate from the rich character list that they have with WFC/FOC and just do their standard repaint fodder material. I guess I should be happy with what we're getting but still feels like we're heading through a big detour away from the suggested destination.
You feel that Hasbro is going to do more repaints? I thought you knew what was going to be released in the future.
However, since we have Starscream I wouldn't mind repaints of him as the other Seekers. I'd especially like to see Omega Supreme and Trypticon, but Hasbro probably isn't willing to do any big figures any time soon. Why not do Ironhide and Ratchet? There's an easy repaint/retool that would be fairly popular.
