    I've got about 4 or 5 of these guys headed my way and I plan on keeping one because he looks great. It got me wondering though, where the hell should I put him? I'm leaning towards Classics because he isn't Bayformerish enough for my movie shelf.

    Do you own an Aveo Swerve? What are your thoughts on him? Where is he in your collection?

    I put aside a shelf for my rarer toys, Aveo Swerve being one of them, so he hangs out there. Aesthetically I think he fits in with Classics/Universe 2.0 best, he just doesn't have the broken up skeletal look to fit into a movie shelf.

    I got one a few months ago, and he went in the Classics Autobots section - despite the licensed alt mode the 'bot mode fits the Classics aesthetic better IMO.

    I didn't find he fit well with the Classics figures & I don't collect movie line stuff.
    So I got mine right in the middle of my MSIB Mighty Muggs.
    It was a perfectly sized gap to put him in.

    I love mine. Amazing paint apps, very cool transformation, and I love the Robocop vibe he gives off. I tend to mix up my TFs and not group them according to series, so right now he hangs out on a shelf that has some Classics, a few Cybertron, one or two movie figs, a few Beast Wars, a G1 Jazz, and a couple of Vehicons.

    I put Swerve in my "other" group since he's too Movie to be Classics and too Classics to be Movie. I had intended for him to go with my Movie toys, but the aesthetic of his limbs just doesn't go with the Movie look. He's really a fusion of the two styles, and unfortunately doesn't really fit with either one.

    I really like it. It's got a fun transformation and a really cool alt mode. I've got it on my shelf with some Universe 2.0 releases, some Botcon stuff and miscelanious releases.

    Don't leave me out! I need to see him in person next to some of my movie and classics figs to tell you the truth.

    So Send me one. Seriously, you got 4. Send some to the less fortunate!

    I've played with him once and he's awesome. Need to track one down for my next purchase. And he's going with my classics.

    Definitely agree with Classics. That's where mine is displayed.
