    looks like the cap on the left wing joint is missing on all of them, not just shady chinese ones.

    Nice... I really have to admire the engineering that went into this figure. Sure, there's not much of a transformation, but he looks great IMO. Hopefully I'll find him on the shelves within the next month, but considering that he's around wave four and I still haven't found wave three deluxes yet I won't hold my breath until about August...

    I love the way Swoop is packaged on the card, like he's gliding across the sky. Package artwork is also lovely.

    The package art is always a pleasure to see. I don't know if I'll pick up this one as I'm still waiting to find the Universe line anywhere around were I live!!!:banghead:

    I'm starting to think there is no pop-out flame gimmick on Swoop's flail. Closer inspection shows that the arrow pointing to it on the back just says "robot smasher ball and chain weapon"

    I just don't understand why someone would pay so much for a toy that will soon be available for $10.

    Don't you know? Buying toys early for obscene amounts is all the rage!
