ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe

That's the name of the silver Corvette, right?

Another beauty. Some of the features:

-dual shock absorbers for lower legs
-unique feet: formed from the front portion of the car (right front side of the car on the left, left front side on the right), each foot appears to be either a tire split in 2 halves with a stabilizer (foot) sandwiched in between OR a tire sandwiched between 2 stabilizers (meaning he would have roller feet)... probably the 2nd option...
-2 pairs of struts linking the upper legs to the lower torso
-chest is formed from the rear section of the car (outer parts) with a black section in the middle (exposed when you lift up the middle rear section) with a silver Autobot symbol on the right (think Alt. Meister when you lift the hood)
-clear blue windshield hanging off the back
-wheels (near the elbows) and rear car sections (pointing forward) hanging off the arms
-hands: 1 thick thumb and 2 thick fingers (a bit like Blackout)
-head is bit a Megatron-esque, but different... hard to describe... has blue light piping
-middle rear section of the car is pointing up on the back in robot mode (like Trans Scanning Bumblebee) and you can see 4 exhaust pipes
-hood halves hanging off the back as wings (front pointing down)
-red/orangy tail lights
-clear headlights
-blue knees
-car has long and pointy rear view mirrors (probably rubber)
-small molded Corvette symbol on front of the hood

Cool info.

I take it this is on the VIP TF08 forum?

Nope, obtained privately.

Re: ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe

From that headshot, Sideswipe looks great. And that description makes him sound even cooler.

Nice to finally see some ROTF news seeping out. Hopefully, we'll get to see the other movie characters in toy form soon, many of whom are still nameless (Chevrolet Trax, Audi R8 etc.)!

Re: ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe

I heard a newer version of Bumblebee is coming up, possibly a Voyager, which would be odd. When I asked if it was the same as the retooled DLX CC BB revealed a few weeks ago, he said no, different toy. My source also mentionned another toy described as "green air", probably meaning a green plane. Or a chopper. No size class mentionned.

Re: ROTF Deluxe Sideswipe

Another quick question, Pascal. What major deviations does this have from the concept art we saw a while back?

Springer, perhaps?

We did get a Legends-class Springer.
