    You gotta wonder where Toysrus gets the pictures for their listings. For example, Cybertron Swerve:

    http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2373251

    The main picture is not Cybertron Swerve.. but in fact G1 Swerve.

    The second picture isn't Cybertron Swerve either. For this, they chose the Universe version.

    I wonder if someone has a sense of humor... or perhaps they can they really be that incompetent?

    But lol @ the listing anyways. I feel sorry if someone buys it without knowing what he or she's getting into.

    It has been up that way of some time. I think Amazon.com had it like that at one time too but I'm not sure.

    Of course, the lucky bastard who orders one of these and ends up with an Alt Swerve will become my hero. :)

    I noticed that the other day. I can kinda see getting Universe Swerve's pic mixed up in there, but the G1 artwork? :sly:  How the hell does that happen? How do they even have access to that, let alone know that that is in fact Swerve. They can get that right, but yet, so wrong?

    I can kinda sympathize here; I assume their web staff probably just does a Copernic search for .JPG images on their network drive named "Swerve" and goes with what they can find. Half-assin' it means a paycheck, usually.

    Note Cybertron Swindle has Alt Swindles picture. Aggrivating.

    OH MY GOD! Why are the movie characters not SHAPED and ANIMATED exactly like this picture? It would be sooooo awesome! And look! He has a real face! Look at that pout. How can you not love that pout?

    That's FAR better than any of those Bumblebee or Prime or Jazz or Megatron pics that are going around. THIS is what the real G1 collector wants to see! Because G1 ruuuulz all!

    ...

    Just who the hell was I channelling?

    Well... That's different.

    I'm confused on the heirarchy, is this better or worse then the upside-down and mis-transformed pictures?
