His head looks tiny in that 4th to last pic :lol:
Looks awesome though. Wish I was collecting this scale. That alt mode wins me over even if the robot mode is nothing insane.

Lambor demonstrates the "leg up" position on Convoy (TM Ray Kellogg) That takes bearings of chrome steel.

I always thought Sideswipe was the coolest looking of the Diaclone car designs, so this would be an instabuy for me, if only there wasn't Fort Max and all this awesome cassette-based stuff to save up for. Gonna' hafta' put this one off for a bit.

Yeah, I can't blame you. MP-10 is incredible, and one of my fav figures, but that $300 price tag is quite daunting. Especially if you're on any kind of budget. He's well worth it for those who can afford him though (at least in my opinion).

Wow... he's been working out. Look at those abs! He looks fantastic and I'm trying to make up my mind. IF I get him then I will commit to collecting all upcoming (assumingly) First Season MPs -Hercules for the Constructicons. If I skip, well my pocket will be a lot fuller.

His hands look a bit goofy tho.

They are fine when in a fist but open they look "orangitangy". And yes I just made up a word. There seems to be too much space when open between the thumb and fingers and I'm not a huge fan of the bent fingertips. I realize I'm probably being WAY too picky as he is a deluxe+ figure. But he's also an MP. Could also be the zoomed pics too.

Not that impressed by robot mode, he looks really blocky and under-detailed for a MP.

I wish they could have made the hood piece smaller in robot mode, it looks way too wide.

But he's supposed to be blocky, that's the whole point of the Countach. I guess he could use a few touches of paint here and there to bring out a few small molded details...but not much. As for the hood, eh, it looks good to me. Maybe it'll get in the way a touch, but I feel like that's what Sideswipe is supposed to look like. He's a somewhat bulky soldier type.

Hopefully this guy will still be available after Fort Max comes out. Won't be able to buy him until then.

Well I only have the pictures to go by but the level of engineering that went into this toy just seems really sub par for a MP. It seems more like a deluxe.

Don't get me wrong, I realize it's a pretty simply transformation to go from car to robot but Rodimus, in my opinion, was a perfect example of how a car-former should get the MP treatment.

Interesting. I actually consider Rodimus a failure. Although Rodimus is accurate (which of course is the real focus), I'm uncomfortable transforming him. I got mine discounted at TRU because it was open and missing instructions, so I assume that has a HUGE impact, but watching youtube makes me fearful of breaking tabs, sensative flaps, and a host of potential breaking points! On top of it his shoulders are weird when his arms are straight forward and his chest disconnects regularly. At this point, I'm seriously considering buying a second (Takara Version) so that I don't HAVE to ever transform him to show both modes -which of course completely goes against the basic principle -TRANSFORMING.

Don't forget, Sideswipe is between a deluxe and voyager sized figure, he's not nearly as large as Rodimus.

I wonder what the odds are that he'll be available after the first of the year. I've already got so much on order, I've got to push him off for a bit unfortunately. Hopefully I can pick him up later, or we'll hear about a US release.

Yeah he's much smaller than the previous ones, but it's because they're making everything in scale now, and so he scales perfectly! I love it!
