at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

Because he's an awesome design and they wanted to take another swing at it?
There's also the new Ironhide and Bumblebee molds. Not sure why Sideswipe is any more surprising.

They also recently made a new Ratchet mold and a new Optimus mold. Basically Autobot in the film that isn't an Arcee, one of the Twins, Jolt, or died permanently got a new mold.

Sideswipe is a bit of a nobody, though. I think it's great that he gets a new mold, but I'm a little surprised that Hasbro thought it was worth the effort. I doubt anyone would have complained if they'd just kept using the same old mold. It's not like anyone was expecting or anticipating a new mold for him, especially when he just got a HA toy.

He was in the film only briefly, but apparently he made just enough of an impression for him to sell toys though. The new mold Deluxe. Several repaints of the original mold. The first repaint in the Human Alliance line.

He must be selling well to earn all that!

A vast improvement over the original, although I preferred the door-swords to the new pistols. He has real feet now!

He's going to be in TF3 as a convertible, so they probably made him with that in mind.

I have signatures disabled because they suck.

I would complain a little about whether Sideswipe warrants another mold, but we're getting so much we want this year, both old and new, that I really can't bring myself to be all that annoyed about it. I want the Japanese version of this, since it looks like the movie, but I think I'll miss the swords. Hopefully any improvements on the first version are significant, since I thought that was actually a great mold except for the feet.

I kinda wish Jolt would get a new mold, since the whips are not really good on the one we have. But thats not gonna happen since hes not in the next movie.

So Its nice to see Guys like Sideswipe get multiple molds.

There was a rights issue between Hasbro and another company about this make of car. If you notice the Sidearm Sideswipe vehicle mode its not 100% the Stinger. This is also why TF3s car is now a cab and has a spoiler.

I thought that was only about the RPM vehicle.

If what you say is true, how do you explain the Human Alliance Sideswipe redeco or "Hunters Rumble" Sideswipe?
