The only one that looked a little bootleg in person was Sideways, and that's only because they made the toy into a generic "R8" by removing any badging that would clearly make it an Audi, as well as a few design cues here and there. (for obvious reasons, of course)

    The only one that was on my "must have" list this time around was Sideswipe. And reading futher back I've noticed that they are doing a Human Alliance version of him as well, so that one too I guess. Luckily I managed to get what seemed to be the last one.

    This guy is for display purposes only, to add to an already tiny collection of TFs. (these days, they're nothing more than statuettes)

    I must say the wheels-for-feet makes him a little tricky to keep upright. Other than that, cool looking toy/robot, and my clear favorite going into the sequel.



    I think they made it a generic R8 because Hasbro couldn't get the license to use the brand in their toys.

    See parentheses after my R8 comments. Well aware of the "People's Car" company stance. Just wanted to emphasize that it shows and the toy suffers a bit from it. Ends up looking like a knockoff.

    I just went to one of the Targets near me and they had just stocked the shelves =) Grabbed Sideswipe, Starscream, and an Optimus for myself and one for my dad for Father's Day. I kinda wish they had Ratchet, though... I am obsessed with collecting Ratchet toys. EMT + Ambulance Toy = LOVE!

    Happiness is getting weird looks from the cashier because I'm a girl buying a pile of Transformers!

    Hello! I'm Tay. I guess I'm more well known around here than I thought.

    If my sister sees Ratchet at the Target she works at, I'm totally there.
    They call me Ratchet Girl for a reasonl.
    Yeah, I'm a girl...SO FREAKING WHAT????
    I will always love Ratchet. Don't even try to take my title.
