Information on TF ROTF deluxe Sideswipe

Postby Dead Metal » Mon Jan 05, 2009 11:23 am

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
The Cybertron.ca member Pascal has obtained a deluxe Transforemrs Revenge of The Fallen Sideswipe toy.
He posted a description of the toy to read this description just click here or scroll down.

Another beauty. Some of the features:

-dual shock absorbers for lower legs
-unique feet: formed from the front portion of the car (right front side of the car on the left, left front side on the right), each foot appears to be either a tire split in 2 halves with a stabilizer (foot) sandwiched in between OR a tire sandwiched between 2 stabilizers (meaning he would have roller feet)... probably the 2nd option...
-2 pairs of struts linking the upper legs to the lower torso
-chest is formed from the rear section of the car (outer parts) with a black section in the middle (exposed when you lift up the middle rear section) with a silver Autobot symbol on the right (think Alt. Meister when you lift the hood)
-clear blue windshield hanging off the back
-wheels (near the elbows) and rear car sections (pointing forward) hanging off the arms
-hands: 1 thick thumb and 2 thick fingers (a bit like Blackout)
-head is bit a Megatron-esque, but different... hard to describe... has blue light piping
-middle rear section of the car is pointing up on the back in robot mode (like Trans Scanning Bumblebee) and you can see 4 exhaust pipes
-hood halves hanging off the back as wings (front pointing down)
-red/orangy tail lights
-clear headlights
-blue knees
-car has long and pointy rear view mirrors (probably rubber)
-small molded Corvette symbol on front of the hood

Sadly he has not posted any images of the toy but we will keep you updated on any information regarding this toy as it becomes available.

Stay tuned to seibertron.com for all your Transformers related news!

Don't think he actually has the toy. He's describing an image. He also mentioned a new Bumblebee toy, possibly Voyager, and something that could be
a green aircraft.

Anyway, sounds nice. I really can't wait for this line.

Well if the actual toy is anything like that image, I'm optimistic. It won't be Sideswipe in my eyes (until the eventual red repaint), but at least it could be a cool toy.

I'm sure people remember this concept ages ago:
Just thought I would throw it on here

Personally, I love this design and if it is in the movie, bravo!

The description sounds like the picture in CJH's post, apart from I can't see a knee colour specifically. Does anybody have a bigger version of that image? That looks sweet! Want one.

ok, here's my gripe, THIS IS NOT G1!!! G1 ended about 25 years ago! if you really want to complain about how the movie is not like G1, then go complain about how everything SINCE G1 is not G1! the movie is its own Universe withing the Multiverse!. if Sideswipe is oging to be a silver Centinial, instead of a red..what was it...Lamborghini? then so what!? Bumblebee wasnt a Beatle, but look how AWESOME Bumblebee was! Ironhide wasnt a Van, BUT STILLER ROCKED!!!! i personally believe that Movie Sideswipe is going to kick butt.


now, while i say the movie isnt G1, somethings do NEED to be G1-ish. Examples-Soundwave's Voice, Grimlock's Voice, Altmode, and speech, the overall LOOK of Optimus Prime (in robot mode. i do not mind a fire truck vehicle mode). but Sideswipe? i dont know, i like the design they've got going for him.

G1 did not end 25 years ago, it began 25 years ago. And oh my it's still around in comics, games, MP Alts, Clasics, Universe Henkei. G1 is the only TF franchize to having new stuff added to it well after it was originally cancelled - FACT!.
But I don't mind the movie not being G1 as you stated it's something new.

People will expect G1-esque Transformers until they stop using G1 names and think of something new. Almost all of the TFs from the first movie were based on original G1 characters, yet most of them looked nothing like their namesakes. As a fan who has loved TFs since the beginning, that was a little disappointing to me.

So if they keep using G1 names I'll keep waiting for the G1-style repaints, unless the figure is cool enough on its own, which this one may be. I wouldn't be suprised if it's this line's Concept Bumblebee... really cool deluxe everyone can't wait to get.

Gotta agree with the fact just stated; G1 didn't end so many years ago, it began, and its still going quite well as THE longest lasting Transformers continuity ever thank you very much.

Now, perhaps I'm reading this wrong but..

..yet..

Southpawpartner wrote:now, while i say the movie isnt G1, somethings do NEED to be G1-ish. Examples-Soundwave's Voice, Grimlock's Voice, Altmode, and speech, the overall LOOK of Optimus Prime


..?

Why? Why is someone's preference for a certain "like G1" look to Sideswipe so different from your "G1-ish" preference for Soundwave or Prime's voice, or the look of said characters? Is there some definitive difference between "like G1" & "G1-ish" that I'm not catching?

Personally, I let go of any expectations from the new movie continuity, aka 'Bayformers', albeit begrudgingly. It indeed is an entirely new continuity in which they can do whatever they like with aesthetics and onward, but then I never expected something contrary to that. It was certainly more to the severe departure from certain aspects (not to mention the behavior of those associated with the film's making at the time) that was the initial slap in the face. But no matter one's preference, the world was many years starving for a live action/cg Transformers film and the one we ended up with banked heavily due to that want. So this new Sideswipe? I'm not keen on the nameslap, but other than his mug all the robot images I've seen look badass.

But I will be irked if his toy incarnation sees a red repaint before the long awaited (by me anyway) movie Ironhide toy does. :-x

Great, now we have a Transformer whose robot mode is literally useless on rocky hill or mountain surfaces.
