    Just noticed that Swoops wings are white coloured, unlike that shown at Botcon (and maybe SDCC) where they were silver. I am just asking why the change? They clearly look so much better in silver and look cheap in white. Is it just to save money?[​IMG]

    Yeah probably.
    Also only one wing has a cap while the other does not.

    It's the same answer pretty much EVERY time. The Botcon Swoop was a prototype where all color was painted on, and the production is molded in colored plastic (in this case metallic light gray, which always look less shiny and metallic than paint, especially in photos.)

    Also, there's NO missing cap. one wing is attached from the top, the other from the underside, so the connection snaps are visible on opposite sides on each wing. Don't know why they did it that way, but it was designed that way - there's no parts left off.

    I am just happy we get Swoop in the TFA line, I can live with the wings but silver would be nice :)

    I'm personally happy with them the way they are. I just hope we get some more Dinobots in Animated at some point (they have said they want to do more of them).

    His wings aren't that dark on the show, so they probably changed it for accuracy. (similar to that wildly mis-colored prototype Lugnut)

    I think Ultra Magnus having that weird blue colour instead of being white is far worse.
