    Yes - he's worth the purchase. Especially if you are a fan of Animated. He looks cool in both modes and he's one of the few Autobots that can fly.

    Swoop is like owning a 3-3/4 inch star wars action figure that can transform. I find the similarity in size to those figures to be pretty neat.

    Once you get Swoop you'll want Slag (Snarl). The three look amazing together

    You may want to consider getting snarl as well to complete you dinobot collection. Make sure to check the feedback forums for proper transformation...snarl has an issue with his dino head in robot mode that a lot of people had problems with (including me). The provided instructions weren't very clear.

    Just a heads-up.

    That... That's actually a very cool way to describe him. :D 

    Go buy swoop and then fix his mace to have pop out flames!

    Then fix his chest so he doesn't eventually develop stress marks in bot mode, and he's good. :) 

    If you still need convincing, or need help on how to do that, go check out S.O.S. Dinobot!

    Swoop is one badass little figure, and he's even better if on sale.

    Great articulation, looks awesome in both modes, easy transformation, and a giant mace! Definately worth it.

    Swoop is just about the weakest figure in the line. It's a POS.

    Best to just think of it as a action figure, because the transformation and the Pterodactyl alt mode are pathetic. As an action figure, it's decent.

    I hate it, his head won't stay on and his wings won't stay connected in bot mode.

    I think that you should buy Snarl before you buy Swoop.

    I only got him to complete my Dinobot collection. I honestly dislike it...the arms just hang off in Dino mode and his articulation is all messed up. His weapon rocks though and he looks cool in Robot Mode.

    I got him to complete my dinobots as well... It was on sale so I got a great deal on it or otherwise theres no chance. He's a good figure but does have his flaws that all toys have. I think it would be a great addition to your animated collection

    Great figure. I've been very happy with him. My only gripe is that his head doesn't quite snap into place as well as I'd want, but not a big deal.

    If you have Grimlock and Snarl you have to get Swoop.
