Traditionally the Corvette Autobot has always been Trax. Well sorry Trax, Sidewsipe is the Corvette Mr. Bay said so. Also the twins in the movie are Mudflap and Skids. it’s kinda odd Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have always been the Autobot twins. Such trickery, my mind can’t take it.
Sideswipe is the Chevy Stingray concept Corvette. The toy looks great in vehicle mode, but sadly the separation lines hurt the overall appearance.

“Another one! You lazy turd. Take some more photos.”
(HQ for the vitality!)
Very unique look. Much better than the, front-end makes the chest back-end makes the legs theme that so many of the vehicle robots have in the movie lines.
The feet are transformed backwards, it actually helps improve the balancing issues.
The large pieces of back kibble are an eye sore.
Gear driven blade gimmick. If you rotate on half of the blade, the other half moves with it.
The two “Sides”.
-Score-AESTHETICS: 4.5 -Awesome look’n Autobot, just a bit of kibble on the back. QUALITY: 4 -Built well, all the joints are nice and tight, just some issues with large gaps in the part fits. Some of the paint might be scratched before you open the toy, check carefully for this before you buy yours. POSEABILITY: 3 -There is a good range of motion in the legs and arms, but the strange feet make balancing difficult. Recommended to transform the feet backwards. TRANSFORMATION: 4 -Great transformation. It would be nice if the car’s hood didn’t end up as a huge piece of kibble though. FEATURES: 2.5 -The rotating blade gimmick is cool. Just not cool enough to get a better score.Usually a mini-con or other little transforming robot is needed to score better. OVERALL: 4.5 -This is another awesome TF for your ROTF collection. The overall engineering and designing of the DX class has been far superior to the last movie line. See what happens when you take your time Hasbro.The wheel feet are a nice creative idea on the big screen, but on the little toy it causes some problems. Definitely worth the $11.99. Bring on the inevitable hordes of repaints.
