New "Sideswipe" in Transformers 2

So ... this is how the Transformer known as "Sideswipe" will look in the movie sequel. I'm not too jazzed, because, well, they made him look too much like the autobot "Jazz" from the first movie.

Back in the 80s, Sideswipe was a bad-ass, red Countach Lamborghini with a rocket launcher on his shoulder.Now he looks like all the rest of the mostly indistinguishable movie version transformers, all silvery and gray. I get that he's not a lamborghini because of the movie company's tie-in with Chevy or General Motors, or whatever Detroit automaker they partnered with.

Still, couldn't they at least have made Sideswipe resemble his old self? Wouldn't something like this look so much more legit:

//Sigh// that's all I can say ... another of life's little let downs ... perhaps there is some hot chocolate in my future to transform this funk around.
