Transformers Generations Fall of Cybertron Sideswipe
Sideswipe is the repaint of Wave 1 Jazz and appears to knock spots off his predecessor. Coming with a remolded head, bonnet and uber massive gun Sideswipe is fun to play with if simple to transform. The new paint job seems to add the detail missing from poor Jazz who was just too bland due to all the white plastic. His new head is also more in proportion and a very good representation of the G1 fave.
Articulation wise Sideswipe is adequate, he his arms are good with a nice range of motion, the legs are okay being limited by the way they are molded so as to tuck away in car mode, he also lacks a waist swivel. The weapon is a welcome addition to the figure and as already stated huge, it doesn't do much other than have the barrel extend and retract with a tug or a push, it can be mounted on his sides in vehicle mode or be hand or forearm mounted in robot mode.
A nice repaint of a previously poor figure that scores 7/10
Thinking back, probably the thing that started me back into Transformers was when my family got cable telly, which was an embarrassingly long time ago. I was channel surfing and came across the Beast...
