Forget Prime and Generations..

I WANT MORE MASTERPIECE FIGURES!!

i absolutely LOVE that they're scaling these things properly.. and i LOVE the scale they chose.

it's SOOOO exciting that not only are we getting sideswipe and red alert.. but we're getting SOUNDWAVE too.. and all at around the same time!!

And they all look simply awesome. I want Sideswipe badly! Especially if they do a G2 redeco, it'd be perfect!

I shouldn't be surprised at his size, but damn, he's pretty puny by Masterpiece standards.

Yup, a few mistranformations. I'm not seeing the interior you're referencing. Which pic?


Front view of the car, you can see 'seats' through the window. I'm sure it's not much of an interior like the Alternators, more like the one on Rodimus, but it still looks somewhat like a car interior. 8)

but G1 Sideswipe's animation model had his windshield where it is on this toy.

...And? You don't need to follow a model to make a good toy.
That's the whole point to the Masterpieces (or, one of them). To be as show-accurate to the cartoon models as humanly possible.


So you want the windshield backpack upside down?
Who? Me or BP?
