Hideous colors. I guess I'm not a true fan since I don't like it.

I was planning on picking up one of the NASCAR figures when I could find one, but I do believe I'll go for this instead! His paint-job reminds me of NASCAR, I enjoy seeing the big 'bot symbol as well as the homages, and I really like that he has guns instead of blades! (That was really my only quarrel with movie 'swipe)

I usually like Blue and Yellow together. Not this time.

I want one for my G2 shelf. Hope it glows under the blacklight nice.

I Really like the Sideswipe mold, both of them, and I have a decent army of Sideswipe clones.
I'm really glad this is a local exclusive and not a high priced Japanese import.
As a side note, if anyone has one of the Target exclusive Sideswipe repaints they no longer want, I'm interested.

I like the color in vehicle mode, but not so much in robot mode, his yellow head isn´t very nice. I wasn´t planning on getting it, but after hearing the omages, I suddenly like it.
Correct me if I´m wrong, but I think this is the first time Hasbro actually uses the Autobot Transtech symbol for anything.
