As much as I like Sideswipe, I wonder how many color variations we will see of the mold considering that most Mp figures are repainted over and over again. If Takara does milk the mold, I would love to see Mp version of e-hobby figures like Tiger Tracks and Deep Cover, as oppose of Takara making evil clone characters.

Interesting. Didn't see that one coming. Was kinda hoping for a Galvatron or Shockwave, but at least it's a new mold.

I would like to get him. I already see a repaint of him as Red Alert send he is the same mode as Sideswipe. I'm glad they when with him exspet of your same old characters they keep doing from any seires. I'm getting tire of seeing Optimus,Megatron,Grimlock,Bumblebee,Starscream,Hot Rod done over and over and over again. I would love to see other characters done beside them. Sideswipe is one I will go for and others I like to see are. Cliffjumper,Soundwave,Slug,Sludge,Laserbeak,Thrust.

So I guess the reason for this is so that they can repaint him to Sunstreaker? Either way i'm still scratching my head. Shouldn't they do more important characters first?

Red Alert for sure. And possibly some other color variations like that black Sideswipe that Takara released, or the G2 deco. Sunstreaker would be more difficult, I think, unless they're gonna be liberal with the design like the TF Universe version.

Sunstreaker was a different mold, but Red Alert was the exact same mold.

Yeah you guys are right, i'm getting my molds mixed up. Honestly though i think fans are easy to please, as long as its something different people will accept it. I still think you got to get the heavy hitters most wanted like Galvatron, etc.

To be blunt, Sideswipe wasn't that popular. Although the lamborghini was my favorite car as a kid.

I'm glad they are going away from the leaders I was getting tire of seeing nothing but the leaders and the same old characters all the time. I welcome Sideswipe to the list now if I can get him my MP Grimlock will not be all alone send he is the only MP I own at the momet.

I hope this means a cheaper price point. I wonder if Sideswipe will be as big as the Alternity figs, or bigger

I don't think he'd be that small. I'd say as tall as MP Rodmimus (in Hot Rod form), or maybe a head shorter.

I can't wait to get this one. Sideswipe is one of my faves. Sideswipe was chosen for the same reason Starscream was. You can get the most mileage out of the mold. A Red Alert repaint/redeco is a guarantee, plus since Takara enjoys doing Black repaints a G-2 Sideswipe version seems like a guarantee. Plus they could go with the Tiger Tracks, Clamp Down and Deep Cover repaints as well.

True. If Takara goes with the Botcon route, we could also see an evil Sideswipe. It would be cool if Takara Tomy can find a way to give Sideswipe an alt robot a la Classics Sideswipe. That way, we can get a breakdown - the original version resembles Sideswipe a bit with the exception of the front part of the car being Sideswipe's chest. If Takara can find a way to hVe the. Front car chest piece move to the back for a Breakdown figure. That would be cool.

Sideswipe is my favorite G1 car autobot, but I would have expected Takara Tomy to go with the Prowl mold, however. They can do Prowl, daclone blue Bluestreak, G1 Bluestreak, anime Bluestreak, and Smokescreen. I can see them making him or the Bumblebee mold next - he too can be repainted a lot.

The only major problem with doing a Breakdown version would be people would want the other Stunticons AND they would want to combine them to make Menasor [an MP Gestalt would be awesome though] I'm surprised we haven't gotten a Prowl or Jazz yet either.

While that might BW true, Takara has released a High-end Deadend in the Binaltech series despite being a black sunstreaker, as well as several Breakdown figures (original and repainted sculpts) in various Tf lines.
