YouTube reviewer peaugh treats us with another Tranformers DOTM video review. This time it's Deluxe Sideswipe. DOTM Sideswipe once again he takes the form of a silver Chevrolet Concept Corvette, though this time around he's a convertible. Sideswipe actually had two ROTF Deluxe figures: ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe and Sidearm Sideswipe. Does this one top them both?

This review was very amusing, peaugh was all hopped up on tea lol. Aside from that on Sideswipe I'm torn; I really like the weapon and some of the details but just like Sidearm Sideswipe there are too many loose floaty panels. Hmm I may get it on sale.

Looks better than the first deluxe SS but not as good as the second. I just don't need a third deluxe version of him.

Personally, I really prefer the unpainted, almost white color (I don't know why, but I've always just liked white for cars and transformers), and somehow it reminds me of the unicron trilogy's style. If I pick up any DotM figure, it'll be this one.

I don't like how you can see the "road" through his non-existent floor boards, but I guess it's not too egregious. If he was HA and came with Fred Flintstone, it would work better 8-}

Anyway, I'll wait for a hopeful Shadow-blade style repaint.

That's a pretty bad backpack, and I don't like the fact that you can see through the car, but otherwise it looks like a fun TF. Cool Mechtech weapon too. Unfortunately, the lack of paint kills it for me. I'll be sticking with my original Sideswipe, unless they repaint this one later on.

I agree. The platic on this figure makes it look extremely cheap, almost unfinished.

not liking this one at all. except for his swords. if the united sidearm sideswipe had these kind of blades, he'd be pretty much the perfect deluxe version.
also, just decided i'm gonna get a united s-sideswipe as replacement for my old rotf one

I might grab him and do a Mach 5 style repaint

Well, I usually don't buy figures by how shiny they are, so screw paint apps.

Looking at him as a Transformer, and as Sideswipe, I like him better than both of his previous versions. He doesn't have gigantic chunks of back kibble that can't be hidden. The door sections at least can fold onto his back so they're less obvious. The knife weapon is neat too.
Most of all, I like the alt-mode. I'm really liking the drop-top rendition of the Corvette Concept.

I was just going to say that this would be a perfect figure for a repaint but someone beat me to it. In light of that the extra coat of paint might stiffen up that loose hood and possibly other panels. Just imagine what he would look like with a full coat of paint and that gun!

I like how much cleaner this figure looks in alt mode compared to his older versions. Not SO many different pieces coming together on the front end.

I like how unobtrusive his mechtech gun is, and the fact that he's still almost the same size as Sidearm Sideswipe. And despite the simplified transformation, he looks decent in bot mode.

The fact that his alt mode's got no floor in the passenger area does suck, but it shouldn't be noticeable on a shelf.

His lack of silver is easily remedied with a coat of Krylon, too. I'm likely to pick him up when he comes out.

Too bland to be a ROTF Sideswipe. Not to mention the car being see-through, a major fault to this guy. And it seems like after 3 molds, Hasbro just can't work out the back kibble. What a bummer too, he has the coolest looking blades for a movieverse Sideswipe.

I hate this SS! I like the ROTF SS and the Sidearm SS.
