"G1 Sideswipe SE" by twistedpaul (Netherlands) on Jun 28, 2004

Sideswipe was the first toy I bought some six years ago when I started collecting TFs again. While not being featured that prominently in the G1 cartoon, he was always a big hit with fans, probably because the original G1 toy remains one of the better releases from the early years, 1984-85.
This re-release is basically the G1 toy with some minor cosmetic improvements. For a start, the factory stickers have been replaced with painted details, which looks a lot better while remaining faithful to the toys original design aesthetics. The eyes have been subtely painted blue, which looks fantastic.
Also, the Japanese launchers are a lot stronger than anything released in Europe/America in the past, and with the original missiel size too. But yes, they really ARE dangerous ;-)
All in all this version of G1 Sideswipe is kind of a special edition. I'd recommend this to anyone who still needs a G1 Sideswipe or who simply collects the Dreamwave re-issue series.
