    I was just wondering, do the launchers stick to the wings with no problem? I just got an original swoop, not KO, and the launchers just fall out of the pegs. I am thinking that the launchers maybe KOs but is there any way to know for sure?

    I've had two Swoops one that I had as a child and beat to hell, and a replacement I got as an adult and both of them the launchers fit just fine.

    I lost mine years ago, but I don't recall having this problem with it.

    I just got an original G1 Swoop recently and the launchers peg into the wings very tightly.

    I think the figure is damaged. I took a second look and it looks like the whole was stretched somehow. Maybe some one tried to force a bigger weapon on it.

    Btw, is there a link on cleaning up G1 figures? Cleaning chrome, taking stickers off, getting yellowing clear plastic clear again, etc.

    Thanks,

    I own three complete original G1 Swoops, two straight wing variants, and one bent wing variant, they all are tight.

    They fit tight on mine, and it's pretty much a junker.

    I have an original and the launchers fit tight as well. I also have the KO as I ordered it for the box and the missile launchers never fit right, they always fell off. That was untill I added some polish to the pegs.

    I literally received an original, loose G1 Swoop yesterday.
    It was so minty fresh that I had to check on internet that it wasn't a knock off, but it ticked all the right boxes: good paint, painted face, and perfectly tight missile launchers, both in the hands and on the wings.
