Between this comment and Mkall's mention of this Treadshot sporting Armada Sideswipe's colours does anyone think they're trying to reference Universe 1.0 Treadshot? Car alt mode, taking the colours from his opposite number mould mate (A 'Swipe)? I've been that focussed on G1 Treadshot with the direction the rest of the set is taking but I see nothing of him here, head's wrong, alt mode's wrong, colours are wrong, so maybe SG Universe with a bit of Energon thrown in Treadshot?

As do I, though I'm surprised you're not going giggidy over the Armada reference

As is, peel off that red Decepticon logo and it would be a pretty decent Classics Freeway.
