Sideswipe, No More!

{mosimage} Remember the preview of "Sideswipe" from Titan UK's Transformers Animated #1? Remember the outrage from fans when they saw their beloved Sideswipe turned into a skeletal, yet blobby Iron Man wannabe? Well, it caused Titan UK to backpedal a bit, and with the comic being released today, we now know how far they pedaled. Instead of "Sideswipe" the character in the comic is now named "Afterburn", and he's now the Autobots' best bud!
