Hasbro Transformers Generations Cyber Battalion Sideswipe Action FigureRecently and accurately cited as something of a nothing character, Sideswipe enjoys significant fame despite being most famous for being a toy in 1984 and a character that hands Optimus Prime a jetpack. There's not a lot else to him, other than being a Lamborhini and one of the characters who was popular thanks to being part of the inaugural class of Autobots.

The 7-inch tall features about 15 points of articulation and comes sock-tied to a cardboard slab in a closed box. If you got Prowl [FOTD #1,802] it's a similar toy. Aside from color, the new parts include a head, feet, forearms, and chest. Everything else is shared, for you aspiring customizers or people trying to predict what else you can retool from this seemingly versatile mold.

He has big feet with lines in them, similar to Prowl, and has no problems using most 5mm accessories like Prime Masters or Titan Masters. He stands well and manages to resemble the original, even if the car hood chest isn't at quite the right angle.

Transformation is a snap, but getting the panels just right can be a bit of a challenge. The legs become the back half of the car, and those are a bit iffy to slide in place easily - but it all works, and you can figure it out easily. If you can't, maybe you shouldn't collect these.

The car is perfectly nice, but only vaguely looks like the car on which it was based. This should avoid lawsuits. The windows are painted black and it has a red Autobot brand on the bonnet, but it's largely unpainted and looks pretty good. The wheels turn, but it doesn't do much else other than delivery a fairly big toy at a better price than you see for a Deluxe. It's just not terribly complicated.

Thanks to their slow roll-out, I've been picking up all the Cyber Battalion toys I can find - and a couple of the Cyber Commander toys. (There are two I haven't actually seen up close.) These are fun and big, and since the collection seems to be growing at 2-3 per year I'm fine adding them to my stash. If you already have a Masterpiece Sideswipe you don't need this one, but it's a decent cheap substitute with a great head sculpt. If Hasbro made a G2 redeco I would buy it.
