    I was just wondering if they've improved the G1 Swoop KO mold?

    I got one from the time where they were including a painted face and the correct sword in a seperate bag.

    I openedit for the first time tonight and are severely dissapointed. If I'd opened this one when I first got it, I'd have been put off buying the KO Mirage. Its loose, the parts don't align properly, the dino-beak won't go right down, and a few other things.

    If the newer versions are better I'd happily buy another, but not if they're as bad as the older ones.

    Cheers in advance.

    I was wondering this same thing today. I really want to buy one if they made them better, like how nice Mirage is.

    I wish I knew. I'm on the fence regarding Swoop. I'm already in for Slag and the Bommander.

    my swoop was one of the Middle ones, where they started improovements, and i find mine actually quite nice. other than the cheap ass paint, and the stripped screw hold on one arm, i find mine was nice and sturdy. NOT up to par with a G1 swoop mind you, but very suitable for kitbash into diaclone.

    i heard good things with later releases, where some thinsg were fixed, but the paint is still a problem.
