Blog #1467: Toy Review: Transformers: Cyber Battalion Sideswipe

Transformers: Cyber Battalion Sideswipe

The original Cyber Battalion and Cyber Commander toys were only available in South America and later at Universal Studios. Read my reviews of the original 5 Cyber Battalion & 2 Cyber Commander toys, Cyber Battalion Jetfire & Prowl, and the repainted Cyber Commander Optimus Prime.

Sideswipe is a significant remold and repaint of Prowl.

Sideswipe

Sideswipe is a significant remold of Cyber Battalion Prowl. I liked Prowl, but Sideswipe has more detailed paint apps. Painting his forearms white and hands black is a huge improvement over Prowl’s all white arms. He has a really great head sculpt. I wish he had a gun. In car mode he does not really resemble the classic Lamborghini, but I really like the design of the car. He looks a little more like a muscle car.

Overall: I highly recommend Sideswipe.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I see an easy remold for Cliffjumper…have the hood swing back instead of front, and remold the new chest, head, etc somewhat to look more like Cliff.
