Someone's losing their top in Transformers 3 and it's not Megan Fox or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Corvetteblogger has spotted a Corvette Stingray Concept, with altered aesthetics. While the likelyhood of this being owned by someone from the beautiful Beverly Hills is high, it's also quite possible that this is Sideswipe's appearance in Transformers 3. With the recent makeovers for Prime, Bumblebee and Ratchet, it would not be hard to imagine Sideswipe would be receiving one too. Check out the sleek speedster below.

Come to think of it, we haven't seen any pics of Sideswipe on the TF3 set.

Prime make-over? I've seen nothing new about Prime.

OMG! Cover your eyes, kids. Sideswipe, put your top on! Your upholstery is showing.

Oh, darn. There goes my dream of seeing him as a red Lamborghini. Please Michael Bay at least give us Sunstreaker this time.

My first reaction: maybe less kibble on the toy.

Yeah, I'm not digging it. I think the lack of a full-height windshield throws off the aesthetics.

If true, there goes any chance of a movie-accurate Deluxe SS for TF3. Don't have the ROTF one w/ me, but what's under the roof, the arms? How many convertible TF cars have there been? I can think of the Alternators Honda S2000 and Dodge Viper, any Deluxes? On the Dlx scale it'll be harder to make it work.

The link above shows a better front-end view and describes some other changes- the ehadlights are now in the front end recesses, new dual hood scoops, different grill and wheels. Hmm. I'm starting to dig.

I'm liking it. Could they toast Ratchet while they are at it. Sick of seeing him in all his repaint gawdyness.

Wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro just repaints the existing mold but paints the roof a slightly different color and says he has his roof up (it's a convertible, after all).

There`s Clocker, from Cybertron, but it`s a Scout.

I really don't want him to be a convertible in the movie. It will take away a lot of his "tough" factor.

As far as a toy, I don't even remotely care.

Looks like nothing new with Prime here...

I'm hoping this convertible is really Sunstreaker, with Sideswipe as the hardtop (even though he hasn't been spotted on the set yet). C'mon Bay - give us Sunstreaker already! Skids and Mudflap as twins?? If you have Swipe, you've gotta bring Streaker too!! And give them some actual screen time too!!!

oh PLEASE no, this will make Sideswipe look leass badass in the movie. Keep the hardtop, and this will be a lot harder on hasbro to make a toy, convertibles will obviously be hard to make as Transformers, can you imagine sideswipe with a back with seats, ick...

Its doubtfull that this belongs to any private owner concidering that there are only a few versions of the the Sting Ray concept in exshistance. Non of which are in the hands of the general public.

I for one like this version. I don't see it being any less "manly" than the coupe. :D

Very true. There isn't likely a private owner of one of these outside of GM. Also, even though I prefer the hard top, this is still about as "chick magnet" as a car could possibly be. It is definitely not a wuss car.

Possible confirmation?


It appears to be Bumblebee, the topless Corvette Stingray Concept, and a red Ferrari.

It seems the next film could be getting edgy. The convertible Corvette last seen here, would very much appear to be Sideswipe's alternate mode in Transformers 3. The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog has posted a video featuring the car driving a short distance, along with the Camaro we know as Bumblebee. To view the video click here.

Am I the only one that noticed this, but the Red Ferrari reported earlier as being a new autobot is at the front of that line! I'm hoping for Hot Rod/Rodimus or sunstreaker or blurr
