    I thought the head mold looked a little strange from the early pics. Not to fond of it at all.

    Also the lighting that was used in the non-photoshopped pics is bad. It gives the toys a sickly yellow tinge.

    Hey does anyone else think this head looks like Bludgeon a little bit? I might get the figure just for the head! :)

    cool colors and Ummm er' interesting head design.

    that head could almost pass for a Female Transformer's head.

    I just may get one and repaint it to become Arcee.

    Considering I have SS and still haven't gotten a good look at his head, i don't think i will mind the new head sculpt.
    and i will just rename the silver one Swerve and the red one Sideswipe.

    Just for grins, can't ya just swap heads out?

    Weird head.

    So this is Japan exclusive only? Or does the Hasbro version have the new head as well?

    That face, not the head, reminds me of Dinobot for some odd reason.

    YUCK!! The head mold is horrible! Plus the colours are weird! IMO, this is an insult to movie Sideswipe's design :mad

    Okay. If the colour is RED like the shinier pics, then it's fine. But the head! ><"

    Doesn't just about every movie figure have an ugly head? This one does look very Dinobot to me too.

    *sigh*

    This happens every time a Hasbro toy gets announced as an exclusive for Japan...

    Swerve will be released by Hasbro and Takara.

    Hasbro Swerve will be a mass market release.
    Takara Swerve will be an Amazon Japan exclusive.

    Both will have the new head.

    The only "exclusive" is his Japanese market release via Amazon. That means he will not be available at regular Japanese stores.
