SideSwipe, hard to go wrong there!

Except in the Armada case though.

I'm cool with it as long as he's black and has "SIDESWIPE" painted on his spoiler and doors.

Erm...you're thinking of G2. G1 Sideswipe was red.

Not to nitpick, but they're basically the same thing aside from the paint job.

The same MOLD maybe, but the paint and stickers are quite different. I ment to say that Sideswipe will most likely resemble G1 rather than G2, because every character in IDW's comics is from G1. I think Milanon got the two confused. Or he made some kind of witty remark in that statement. I dunno.

You might want to work on learning how to pick up sarcasm, especially on these forums.

I did think the sarcasm was fairly profound there...

Sounds good, but with the secrecy and spoiler alert, I thought it might be someone different or bigger, or I don't know more spectacular. For example, Superion, Sky Lynx, Countdown or Metroplex...

Sideswipe seems very random. Don't get me wrong I'm glad to see him finally make a comics appearance, it just does not seem like a big deal--I guess I just assumed he'd show up eventually as a supporting character. Cannon fodder, warrior, sarcastic speedster, but used as a main foil to Galvatron, doesn't seem right. However, that is not stated, so who knows, maybe he is just a supporting cast member.

I guess the group wondering why Sunstreaker, but no Sideswipe was larger than I thought. ..

Really, it's a pretty sad day when having Sideswipe appear is such fantastic news to people. He's such a main character that it's sad that it took this long for him to appear. Hound too. Just sad that the fans have to wait so long to see their favorites. Has a sense of failure of customer satisfaction because you don't know your customer to it.

I wonder if he'll be in an Earth mode to counterpart his brother, or if we'll be seeing his Cybertronian form...

I could totally get behind Sideswipe cropping up in black a la G2. It's the only place he ever got any characterisation at Marvel, anyway :)

Sideswipe's not really that interesting, is he? Hound I can totally appreciate as a more interesting TF, but Sideswipe always just seemed so frightfully dull.

Well, most people did think it was odd to have one without the other. But who knows, maybe they aren't even brothers in this continuity, although I really did like the concept of mitotic spark twins that was put forth to explain sibling relationships back in the DW days.

I've been pissed that Sideswipe hasn't shown up yet. That was my first-ever Transformer, and since the IDW launch it's been akward that there's been a Sunstreaker but not a Sideswipe.

I'm a big Sideswipe fan, but he's never really had a lot of character to him. Hound would have been a bigger ice breaker to me. Maybe Sideswipe will lead a blazing assult to find Sunstreaker in some way or another.

Perhaps at the end, he'll find out what happened to Streaker on Earth and leave to find retribution, leading to an appearance in Devestation.

Personally, I'm indifferent about him. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the guy, I'm just more stoked about a spotlight on Galvatron. That means we get to hear what makes him tick. After all, like someone said, Sideswipe is no match for Galvy. I hope Galvatron crushes Sideswipe like an Insecticon. :lol:
