Tech Spec

"I don't break the rules, I bend them - a lot."

Sideswipe is nearly the equal of his twin brother, Sunstreaker, in the combat arts, but far less cold blooded. Relishes a fight to the finish with an opponent, and isn't above using dirty, underhanded tactics to come out on top. In robot mode, his arms can act as powerful pile drivers and can deliver up to 4 tons of force per impact with five impacts per second. Double-barreled multi-purpose launcher mounted on right arm fires dual incendiary missiles and doubles as a melee weapon, which can create twin fiery sabers. Shoulder mounted weapons ports fires blinding magnesium-phosphorous flares visible for 18 miles. In car mode, rear mounted rocket boosters allow Sideswipe reach speeds in excess of 450 mph for up to 2 minutes.
