Wow, that thing’s stomach turning. While I disliked all of the Animated designs, at least the others were recognizable. If I didn’t know that thing’s supposed to be Sideswipe, I would have never guessed.

When I look at that I think more about Iron Man than I do Sideswipe.

Seriously, the head is major fail. I like Iron Man, but only when I'm looking at a picture of Iron Man. Fix the head and it will be much better. *Wishes for a new head and for Michael Bell to VA him*

:SICK: TFA is becoming that one floating chunk that you just can't get to flush down the toilet.

That's just down right unimpressive. :SICK:
Spectacular Spider-man is a better written, better animated show and has a better theme song... Hands down!

Is Sideswipe even supposed to be in the Cartoon?
It doesn't look like it was even remotely designed by the same crew who did the actual cartoon designs.

I usually don't like anything comic wise from the UK. Sideswipe may grow on me depending on how it goes.

The constructicons were bad, jetfire horrid, and now this. My hopes for continued gen-1 inspired characters just crapped out. The nods to gen-1 are the only reason I enjoy animated, if they detour much more, I'm out.

Looks like crap. Then again, who knows. They could be using a design closer to his ROTF character model.

well we have movie blackout in the series possibly if thats true maybe some of the animators are taking or making some of there desings if they where to look like in M. bay movie desgins and turning them into animated series.?

i do like the head go iron man would like to see it color be funny if his mouth was yellow and the res of his was red maybe funny
but idid read somehwere in season its been posted before that decepticons firght team rodimus galvatron vs rodimus while megatron & starscream search for the remains of omega supreme.

i would like to see that just to see how megatron coexist with galvatron who would lead decpticons and which side would starscream pick galvatron or megatron.

He looks like Iron man with the super hero gloves on? Why does he need gloves? He looks like retro Iron Man. It appears that the latest animated incarnation of the Transformers has been waaay off from anything reminiscent of their G1 counterparts. PASS!!!

What's that thing hanging from his left shoulder? It looks like part of his door and side air dams but I don't understand it.

It isn't on his right side, so it doesn't make sense to be there.

I agree I put up with their hot garbage designs only because they were reminiscent of their G 1 counterpats. Screw this !
