Does shiny Sideswipe have any sort of wave mate or is he all on his lonesome like ?

I like the deco but I still prefer Sidearm Sideswipe - I actually rather like the G2 like the Blue Sidearm Sideswipe that is covered in sponsor logos too. The FAB repaint is quite a nice colour too.

I was always a little disappointed in the Human Alliance - I think the gimmick harmed the toy more than most on that one.

With all this propensity for Retooling I kinda wish they'd do that to Voyager Ratchet he's not terrible but a few tweaks would help him a fair bit - even changes to the arms and weapons or a new head sculpt would be a start.

I guess it won't be to many months before the hype machine for the next Live action Movie and indeed the new animated movie begins again.

I hope they learned so lessons with AOE - such as early Power battlers were less popular than FAB was when taken as a whole - when judged by how many they made compared to how many they had left.

I just hope they learn to put more than two domestically available Decepticons out.

He's an exclusive, in Japan. They are usually standalone releases. What venue is he, anyway? AEON like Wheeljack before him?

I you know, I actually tried to give Darksteel those guns once, it didnt work, the peg is too short for Vehicle Mode, the springs push it out. And bot mode he had trouble holding onto them with the open hands. Oh well.

Kind of interesting that his blurb says nothing beats a blade, yet he's packing not one, not two, but three guns. :lol:

Ah, ok. Maybe shipping from RK won't be too bad for a smaller item like this. I do like the silver finish over the gray plastic on the DOTM one.

Like the shiny silver. Makes it look far better than the Hasbro version but I skipped that one because Sidearm Sideswipe was just overall much better.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Just wondered as sometimes exclusives ship in pairs. (even 2 products of different sizes) - I just thought I'd ask in case there was some random Voyager I didn't know about too.

JelZe, you missunderstood. It's not about the mold itself. It's about having the mold in a proper color scheme from Takara instead of the bleh Hasbro original. It is indeed late by 4 years.

4 years... Wow... That much already?
Relax, chill, and stay safe!
