Transformers 3 Sideswipe Confirmed As A Convertible

Looks like it’s not Bumblebee who’s getting his top off. Thanks to YouTube user nando323, we now have a confirmation on the new model design of Corvette Stingray (Vehicle mode of movie Sideswipe). The “new” Convertible Sideswipe was spotted during a Transformers 3 filming in L.A, alongside his Autobot buddies; Bumblebee and the Ferrari 458 Italia. Hasbro will be happy. Since Mattel took the rights to manufacture toys based on the regular Stingray (which explains why we are getting Aston Martin DB9 shaped Sideswipe RPMs and Lotus Elise shaped Deluxe Sidearm Sideswipes), Hasbro now can own the rights to deliver toys based on the new model.

    So sideswipe is back! This might be a turn off for some because alot of people don't like his new look... but I'm just glad he'll be returning!

    ^ I've only seen the one with the corvette concept being spotted near beverly hills. However, I don't think it was truly confirmed it was sideswipe. I believe this is the first time we see him with the other vehicles...Also i think its the first video with Bumblebee, the Ferrari and Sideswipe in action....

    Edit:

    Oh I didn't see that Cyclonus86 made his own thread. Mods you can delete this thread if you want.

    I was shocked and excited at the same time when I saw this. Although the convertible looks weirder than the original, it's still a cool-looking car IMO. I also thought it was neat to see Sideswipe and the red Ferrari with Bumblebee; maybe Sideswipe will get much more screen time since he's spotted with one of the most popular Autobots?

    I hope the Ferrari (I'm assuming Hot Rod or Cliffjumper) gets some good screen time as well.

    Also, does anyone have a single clue as to what's going on in the scene? Ok, some humans run across the street and the Autobots storm off. Criminals being chased? Something suspicious? I have no clue.

    Surely Swipe will have to have a holodriver now in the movie.
    Not that I mind, holodrivers are cool.

    there are 3 suits that come out running of the building, but 1 of the 3 goes into bumblebee's passenger seat

    It looks like Sideswipe may actually have a bigger role in this movie! I hope that Ferrari is Hot Rod.
