    Default Hello Sideswipe, Bumblebee.

    Nice little dual gallery featuring two of the cars used in DOTM.

    *Surprised by 'Swipe's small brakes though (although it is a concept car)...

    As I was correcting myself I realized I started to sound like an old MiniWheats ad -

    The latent car guy side of me: "Swipe's fit and finish as a whole is looking a bit rough." (Wondering if they went the same donor car route for this variant as they did for the original movie BB)

    The movie guy side: "Now looks like a giant Hotwheels take on the Stingray concept, the kids will love it."

    *crickets* Ok, done for now. Can't wait to see them in action.

    The convertible (top down) sort of takes away the whole "Stingray" trademark look from that Vette.

    The most distinct mark of the Stingray lies on that car's rear wind shield. Now with all that gone, due to it being top down, its basically just another concept sports car.

    I like Sideswipe better in ROTF. This one (this top down version in DOTM) is a step backward in terms of aesthetics, as far his vehicle mode is concerned that is.

    Bee on the other hand is a step forward with his vehicle mode in DOTM. The sportier look of the Camaro rocks!!
