What's the difference? G1 Seasons 1-2 and The Headmasters were animated by the same company using the same character models for all but a number of the 1987 characters.

They look significantly different. If I have time (I prob won't) I'll grab screenshots.
Make sure to avoid Season 3 or any Season 2 episodes done by AKOM or the unknown animation studio.

Apparently there's some hardcore MP Sideswipe fanbase that I've offended :lol:
Look, I have no issues with him, and subsequent variations and releases. But he (NOW) lacks a certain level of refinement that becomes painfully obvious when next to his newly released brother. Is he still completely serviceable and could I happily still have him standing with the most current MP's? Absolutely. But I'd love a new one, and would be very curious to see what they could do to make him better.

What I'd like to see is his hood chest compress together to make him... less of a rectangle chested dude. ALSO, nowadays, they put more effort into their subsequent releases. Like, if they made a Sideswipe V2, and followed it up with a Red Alert V2, I'm positive they'd remold him to have the doors on the arms and such to make him as cartoon accurate as possible. And I'd love to see that.

No, I'm in full agreement with you. Sideswipe is a great figure, but when put side by side with Sunstreaker, he is very clearly a dated model, in need of upgrade.

RE: Sideswipe, I guess the fandom HAS shown its appetite for higher parts count / higher priced MPs...

Megatron, Sunstreaker, Dinobot... my wallet, we hardly knew ye.

How odd that this would pop up when we're talking about a new Sideswipe :-?

(this is a custom BTW, click the pics to find the whole series, showing transformation)
