Side Burn - RiD - Figure

Sometimes a Transformer robot comes along that is so poor, that you tend to leave it in it's vehicle mode and Side Burn is one such Transformer. I'll explain. Car mode: A very sweet mode this, I've got both versions of him in his blue and red paint works. It looks solid, clicks together very well and looks great when mixed with the other Transformers. The blue version has blue flames with a white outline on the hood and sides and it looks like cold fire, a nice touch. The engine on SB1 is silver with red parts and against the blue it looks great. The red version is the same, only the flames are yellow and orange and the engine is a mix of silver and gold, again a wonderful contrast. The whole car mode of both versions looks great and wouldn't look out of place in a model car collection. Robot mode: Now this is where it's let down. When transforming him it takes nimble fingers to avoid tearing it apart by accident and when he is transformed then you see that the ideas were gone for this mode. The legs are so frail and posing him is hard, his weapons don't make him look like a threat to any Predacon or Decepticon forces and he's annoyingly loose, so don't expect a lot of fun with this one. I prefer just keeping him in his car mode, the robot is just a waste of time in my opinion. A nice, but disppointing in robot mode toy, pity.
