    Today we are proud to present the first of four galleries for the recently released Generations Asia Exclusive Deluxe Assortment! These four toys are all great additions to the growing Classics / Generations series, and are going to get a limited run later in the year exclusively through Toys R Us in the US, so please take this as an opportunity to get an early look at these store exclusive toys.

    First up is Swerve, an update of the Minibot who has seen a surge in popularity thanks to James Roberts. Generations Swerve is a reworked version of Generations Kup with a very nice alternate head (which makes me think of a firefighter for some reason). The design is exceedingly clever, with lots of little details like the white truck bed, black hood and even the Autobot symbol placement on the roof all evoking the original character. He's a bit of a leftfield choice for a new toy, but he fits the design very well and the new head gives him a certain charm. One that is well recommended, especially if you missed out on picking up Kup for whatever reason.

    Check out the full gallery by opening the link below:

    I really like this mold but this figure doesnt fit my collection, I wish they would have put a cap on the back of the truck and painted him blue and red.
    If you get my meaning, I still love this mold it is so versatile!

    Great photos Simon! I'll definitely add this Swerve to my Classics Minibots.

    And a straight repaint of that head will be a perfect Gears upgrade.

    It could also double as an improved Classics Ironhide.

    Man, I was never completely sold on the Kup, but I think this figure looks great for whatever reason.

    It's a great mold and good repaint, but the head doesn't evoke Swerve whatsoever. Swerve needs a visor. I'll get it when its released stateside as a placeholder but I hope iGear does a good Swerve remold of their upcoming Gears release.

    Shockwave is too small and Swerve is too big.

    Good job Hasbro.

    A 3rd party making a white camper shell would be awesome, especially if it could stay in place on robot mode as well.

    Since the truck bed becomes the soles of his feet, and the knees fold into that space, it would need to detach and plug in elsewhere. Perhaps as a backpack or something? It could work, though I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

    Especially after working out G1 Swerve fit in the truck bed as a gunner :) 

    Thanks for the comments everyone, working on the next couple, should have some Cliffjumper or Wheelie action for you soon.
