Transformers HFTD "Sideways Sneek Attack" to be TARGET Exclusive

Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon
A recent eBay auction listing has revealed that an upcoming Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons exclusive pack will belong to Target stores.

Sideways Sneek Attack features the ill fated Decepticon in the beginning of Revenge of the Fallen sporting a new paint scheme featuring battle damage similar to the "slicing" he fell victim to at the hands of Sideswipe. The pack also includes the Arcee trio with Chromia and Elita-1.

Image

The auction only gives us a look at the front of the package without any more details on the set. More information on this set and all things Transformers will be coming your way as soon as it becomes available.

The cross-sell on the "Ravage Infiltration" set fetures this. So far I think I am correct in saying that set has only been seen in Euro packaging at Sainsburys stores in the UK, I wonder if this one will be released here too?

Ihope this sees the US. I've wanted scale figures of all three Arcee sisters and a more movie-accurate Sideways. This will complete my ROTF collection if I get all of the other movie figs soon.

Not to mention the true colour of Elita-1!

It's on my list too! :D

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

Very nice. I don't yet own Sideways (I do own Dead End who shares the mold though) so I may very well get this version and I like the Arcee trio there too.
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

Should just call these re-paints in a box, sadly im tempted to buy it. Any word on price? If its around $20 it would be a good deal but if its $25 or more its a pass.

Well, I think it's nice to see a battle damage repaint that's more than just black paint applications for once. I wonder how much of the damage will be visible in the actual robot mode. It would be cool though, if he had a headsculpt similar to the T-1000 figure with the split head!

Most excellent. Verily, I too will have an extra Legends Arcee. And this will be my third Deluxe Sideways, you'd think it was a great mold or something.

I do!

No come on, look at it, it's sweet! This is by far the best battle damage we've ever seen. Macgyver hooks Prime should have been painted like this instead of... black spraypaint splotches. At least it's got some detail and looks like they actually tried rather than just putting some stupid marks on it.

I'm sure someone could mod this to break in half. An x-acto razor saw would be a good start, then just fill in the empty parts with styrene and add nub things to hold the halves together. First place at Botcon 2011 art show for sure.

If it's of any help, it's "sister-set", the aforementioned "Ravage Infiltration" was £27 here in the UK. Hasbro always parice as $1(USD)=£1(GBP), so I reckon you are looking at $25-$27.

I thought the purple motorcycle of the Fembots was Flareup, not Elita-1, which still has yet to be released as stated some months ago.

You're a bit behind. Elita-1 was first solicited as Flareup, and has been released as a repaint of Chromia. We can only assume the third mold was nixed.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- TR Ravage and Rumble (the red one)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

Battle damage paint apps....Hasbro's wprst creation ever. And Sideways does not have a black two-tone paint job in the movie. He is all chrome with a black tint when light hits the paint.

I am interested in the sisters however. are these legends class ??? They are too small to be deluxe. But they look too detailed to be legends. They dont look like happy meal toys.
