    That Guy Sideswiped Me!, June 15, 2009

    This review is from: Transformers Movie 2 Deluxe Sideswipe (Toy)

    Sideswipe is one of the hip new autobots who will appear in the Revenge of the Fallen movie. According to the packaging he likes close combat and is a sword expert.

    For kids:
    This guy is a sweet ride. He’s a silver Corvette concept with blue windows and is probably one of the sportiest cars in the line. He transforms fairly easily but has tons of little bits and parts that move and come apart and go together. Because of this he doesn’t seem quite as durable to me as some of the others. His swords are one of the coolest “mech-alive” features I’ve seen yet though and he’s got a pretty cool looking robot form. I think he might frustrate younger kids but most kids will like both the car and robot forms.

    For adults:
    This guy is still a sweet ride. I even want to drive him around and make engine noises. He is painted silver instead of just molded in a certain color and this makes him pop visually. The downside is that over time I see this paint job chipping around the edges and rubbing off on corners. Another down side is because his is an involved transformation and he’s such a bright color there are many visible seam lines.

    His transformation isn’t difficult but it is intricate with many pieces of the body of the car that move and swivel and break apart. He feels a bit delicate but so far has proven durable. Still, if someone went a little nuts on him he might break easy.

    Once in robot mode he looks pretty cool with a sleek head, his shoulders that are the rear fenders of the car and a couple of neat points of articulation action. He has pistons and sliding knee covers in his legs that move as you bend it at the knee and he has four hydraulic rods connecting his leg to his body that slide up and down as you move his legs. The rods are a soft material so they won’t snap. That’s all pretty neat. He does have a bit too much of the car stuck onto his back though to look fully streamlined. But the biggest complaint is his feet. They look fine but the wheels are at bottom (as in his feet don’t sit flat on the ground) which makes standing him up a bit of a chore as you have to wiggle him and his feet around to find balance.

    His swords are two thin strips of the doors attached to each elbow. The cool part is if you grab one of the two and pull it around in an arc toward the front of his arm the other one swings in the opposite direction automatically via a cool little gear set up. They meet right in front to form the sword on each arm. It’s a cool mechanism and works well. Plus you can take the two parts of the sword part way to make double swords or scissor like weapons or half way to make a shield like weapon. It’s versatile and can be used to change up the look.

    This is a tough one, I’ll rate him four but three and a half would be fair too due to his inability to stand well, many seam lines, his chipping paint job and his delicate nature. Then again he looks cool and has those swords…

    This review is from: Transformers Movie 2 Deluxe Sideswipe (Toy)

    Sideswide car mode is really cool and sleek though it seems this figure was a little rushed due too the many seams that stick out which could have been fixed before release. the transformation can be a tad tricky cause the instructions have no words other then the disclaimer about pieces that can come off. but that aside the only tricky part is when you have to fold his body together if the mirrors aren’t moved outward enough it won’t fold at all, but once transformed he strikes a killer bot.

    the upper and lower torso are well detailed despite the lack of paint or decals. my only real issue his is feet he seems too be a tad difficult trying to get it too stand with out support but that’s my only complaint for this figure. I would suggest this too all veteran and new collectors as well to anyone who just likes transformers.

    IF YOU ARE A HUGE FAN OF TRANSFORMERS THEN THIS IS ONE OF THE TOYS YOU SHOULD COLLECT FOR YOUR COLLECTION. I GOT THIS TOY SINCE MY COUSIN WORKED AT CHEVY CORP. AND WAS ABLE TO OWN THE SIDESWIPE AS A CHIEF MEMBER FOR WORKING WITH CHEVY. I SAW THE DETAILS OF HIS CAR AND I WAS AMAZED!!!! JUST WISH THIS CAR WAS FOR TRANSFORMERS WAS DIECAST METAL. GREAT FOR KIDS AND FOR ADULTS AS COLLECTIBLES.
