Vehicle Mode: Sideswipe is almost perfect in vehicle mode. The only problem is their complete failure to match the red paint on some of his parts with the red plastic. This is hardly the first time that Hasbro has had this problem, but it’s such a shame because he is otherwise perfect.
Robot Mode: If anything his robot mode is better than his vehicle mode. In robot mode Sideswipe’s bad paint matching is hardly noticeable. He has an absolutely perfect head sculpt.
Overall: I am pretty sure Sideswipe is the best RID toy yet. He’s an absolute must. I almost want Hasbro to do some kind of Platinum set of these toys that are properly painted.
