A pretty cool mix of RotF robot mode and G1 colours and alt mode. Since he didn't look like this in WFC/FoC, can we expect this to show up in Prime, or its toyline or maybe that MMO game?

It's like the Prime Ironhide concept art. He doesn't looked like that in the games, but all he got was a couple of toys.



And now for my two cents:

This is totally epic. Please give him a toy. :D

Agreed! I always thought it was a shame Movie Sideswipe was silver instead of red! This looks great, toy please Hasbro? Even if its just a Legion class I'd be happy, the design is great. Oh, and he's a Gallardo, sweet~

Now thats what sideswipe should've looked like in the movies, still not a fan of the movie/tfp designs but this is acceptable as sideswipe. I still say TFP is linked somehow to the movies and has nothing to do with the cybertron games, sideswipe & ironhide are proof enough but then throw in stupid bumblebee and its even more clear.

From the neck down, he's all kinds of awesome, but I'd prefer a more G1-esque or at least TF Prime-esque head sculpt.

That may be your personal preference, but it's not correct. Movie homages don't make it part of the movie franchise.

With a bit of tweaking to look more real, Sideswipe and Ironhide would totally have worked like that for live action movies. I would have accepted them over what we got.

It's cool. But for Sideswipe? I don't like it.

It's mostly Movie Sideswipe recolored like his G1 counterpart, but I quite like it.

Good mix of then and now. I like it. Looks like it'd make a neat toy.

Absolutely beautiful!! :BOWDOWN: With the cool designs that both Sideswipe and Ironhide have gotten, it would be a shame if neither of them appeared in Prime, the Jagex game, or any future form of media in the aligned continuity. (I want a deluxe figure of that Sideswipe RIGHT NOW :KREMZEEK: )

Well, he has appeared in both WFC and FOC, and is getting a Generations figure. But, I get what you're saying. You want his Earth-style body. ;)
