    Like the visor head very much. But hope for a G1 colour scheme.

    Prototype on the left was the last sneak peek of Gaudenter. But it's supposed to have been reworked since. The next reveal should look quite different.

    I hope it looks like the one on the right and the initial images they showed

    I've always thought Giga would have given us both faces,
    but now I'm afraid we'll get the visor one with blue-toy Swoop, and the derpy one with red-toon Swoop...
    If that's the case, one reason more to buy the blue one for me,
    but let's hope I'm wrong :)

    Hard to say, so far metallic has been the toon version and chrome they toy. So they could convincingly do blue only in metallic and red only in chrome. Also, the metallic version always seems to get the extra accessories so it would most likely be included with the metallic version.

    Except preorders are already up for blue chrome and red chrome. It seems they're willing to put out four versions of Swoop.

    I still like this version, but prefer the slightly beefier presence of that illustration. Fits the others better. To me, anyway.

    Yeah, the beefcake version in the sketch looks much more in line with the other 3 released so far. Love it!

    I’m anxiously waiting to preorder this. Swoop has always been my favorite Dinobot

    Man the head is the only change I would need. I know this is borderline treason, but I wouldn’t mind if they copied the FT head.

    Ugh I hate the FT head. It looks like its made out of Lego. The contours and organics are all wrong.

    Was ordering up some GP Sludge parts and casually asked the GP customer service guy about Swoop’s availability. He said it’sgoing thru trial assembly as we speak and will be out by August. :peoples: :sly2: 

    Asked if he could send a pic and got ignored. Of course. :D

    I did texted GP recently on Gaudenter's progress. GP said they are indeed redesigning Gaudenter, but mainly on the internal workings. When asked on updated pictures, they said it's not ready and will post them as soon as it's available.
    GP also mentioned they have "made progress on the leader"

    Dude how are you communicating with GP? For about 3 months I've been trying to get the red face/blue visor for not-Slag, was missing in my box. They were responsive initially but not heard or had a reply (via fb page) for a number of weeks now.

    Installed the Weibo app and communicated via that with my very limited mandarin and Google translate. :p

    Must be a big big redesign... Cos it's a v v long wait. From the initial vibes, I'd expect the Gaudenter reveal to follow close to Graviter's release, but it's been a while already... Be patient I must. ..

    Same for me. I still need the silver hips and horns for Grassor that were promised.
