Sideswipe is nearly the equal of his twin brother,
Sunstreaker, in the combat arts, but less cold blooded. Relishes
a fight to the finish with an opponent. Uses underhanded tactics
when absolutely necessary. Arms act as powerful pile drivers. Flies
for up to 2 minutes with rocket backpack. Fires flares visible for
18 miles. Rash actions often lead to injuries to himself. Takes
them all in stride.
Sideswipe was available without (1984) or with a rub symbol (1985+).
Availability: This figure was available in 1984-1985.
He was later reissued in Europe in 1991, in Japan in 2003, and exclusively
in KB stores (though originally planned for Toys R Us) in 2005.
