    I've said elsewhere that in rationalising my collection I was going stop buying Ani, only keeping a select few, I've not even watched any of the show yet due to time issues.

    However earlier today I bought Ani. Swoop, almost without thinking, found myself in the car with a case of beer (what I'd intended to buy), and Swoop.

    I've not opened Grimlock or Slag yet, despite having had them for a while, and I open everything, no matter how vintage/rare.

    Bugger.

    Swoop is pure hand candy. He's immensely posable, and no matter what pose you put him in, he looks good. His transformation is simple, yet interesting, and as Vengelus noted in his review, his dino mode does a lot of nice things it simply didn't have to do.

    He's one of those characters that feels complete.

    Grimlock and Snarl...lag...Snarlag? Slagarl? Bill? are great toys, and both have grown on me... but they haven't really struck me quite as much as Swoop did.
