The Toys'R'US Mission Earth Scan Series is the stores exclusive series, which involve Transformers "trans-scanning" their vehicle modes. TFclub over at Taobao offers our first in-packages images of Sideswipe and Ironhide. They also include the biographies of both figures. The Scan Series continues with Bumblebee and Ratchet, who's bios will likely be the same as Sideswipe's and Ironhide's. Anything involving finding a vehicle that fits their role in the Autobot army, and kicking Decepticon tail with it! Enjoy.
There are two things SIDESWIPE likes more than anything else in the Galaxy: Pummeling DECEPTICONS and fast cars. He chose to scan a vehicle that would allow him to enjoy both. He now arrives to the fight in a stylish, cutting-edge sports car ready to junk any DECEPTICON that dares put a scratch in his paint!
IRONHIDE may be the most battle-hardened AUTOBOT. Countless encounters with the DECEPTICONS have taught him that the proper vehicle mode is essential to battlefield success. Trucks, he thinks, are the ultimate in vehicle mode superiority. And he`s just found one that rivets utility, durability, and performance together in one mean DECEPTICON smashing package.

If I can ever get out to a TRU I might pick these up. For now, I'll wait.

I think it's just the paintjob that makes DOTM Sideswipe worse. Like all DOTM figures, he has great detailing, but little paint to show it off with.
Not really into these, but I like the overall praise of the vehicles they've chosen. Get a Corvette Stingray, kids! IMO Ironhide looks best.

I like how they thought to include "Product does not glow or light up". I figure if they're going to go that far, they should also include "Product does not include paint apps shown in picture" on all TF products. Of course, I guess the teeny tiny "colors and styles may vary" at the bottom gets them off that particular hook.

These however, I think are these look ridiculous. Shouldnt the tires on the clear end of the car be clear ??? All other clear figures have clear tires and rims. Hasbro got cheap again.
