    I've never done a review before, but I got him today and LOVE him. His head is better than I thought. Most pics make him look like he has "bug eyes" but it's just transparent blue "goggles" over his "real" eyes. His color looks great and he has a lot less stickers than Breakdown (this is good). His Micron is, IMO, one of the cooler looking ones. With that, here's a bunch of pics. Be warned, this is all from my iPhone:

    I'm calling it now, when or if Swerve ever gets a toy from Hasbro, it'll be a retool of Prime Ratchet.

    Back on topic, I really like the pizza cutter and the small amount of blue plastic used on his roof hinge thing.

    Oh man. Stop making me want to buy this mold twice! It looks so good in red.

    Also, does Swerve have a ridiculous bumper that's a sticker?

    Man I want that micron. But not really interested in getting Breakdown twice. As nice a mold as it is. I really hope they release all the microns seperately.

    The Breakdown mold looks awesome in red, if it wasn't for my "Get a TF mold once" rule, I would buy Swerve.
    Also, not bad for your first review.

    I'll get a pic of them today.

    Robotkingdom. I ordered as soon as I got the email from BBTS telling me to cancel because my chances of getting one were between slim and none and slim left town. Alas, it looks like slim came back with an extra $10...

    You'll love him. Great deco. Great mold. Great head. Great micron. All IMO of course.

    True, but you can see through and see his real eyes in there. Much better than the promo pics.

    Nice. I love the Breakdown mold and it looks nice in red. But for some reason, AM Swerve just doesn't interest me all that much as a must-have character. If they had designed Ironhide using this mold from the get-go (with a head to match), that'd be a different story. But Swerve? The G1 minibot who doesn't know when to shut up? Odd character choice to go with such a beastly mold.

    His AM is OK; dig the resemblance to Powerglide but the choice of red on him is kinda meh and tacky looking (reminds me of that horrid red gorilla minicon that came with PCC Steelshot); I'd prefer if the colors matched on the two figures with the same dark red for both.

    All in all, I would pick this up if someone (a 3P perhaps) offered an Ironhide-y head to replace Swerve's, with Bayverse arm cannons to match (and maybe stickers to convert the white parts to black instead). Swerve is just a "maybe" purchase, same as Kup, to me.

    Actually, I wonder: can anyone with both AM Swerve and iGear's PP05 Weapon Specialist see if PP05's Bayverse arm cannons fit on Swerve's arms? I would also ask to see a head swap using the extra heads that come with PP05 WS but I read the Breakdown mold (and I assume Swerve too) has a very brittle neck joint due to the clear plastic it's made out of, causing a breakage issue.

    Question: How white is the white on Swerve? It looks kind of creamy. Same question with Breakdown Robot. Is the white on him very white or a very light gray?
