    It's conceivable Japan will roll the WFC stuff into Prime rather than give it a seperate line. It's also conceivable that it's a mistranslation or a shortening of Deadwing's name or something like that.

    While Dinobots would be very cool, Swoop was the last one of these I'd make a Voyager. Sludge would be the first choice there.


    -ZacWilliam, I think it's more likely the "mistake" option anyway.

    If it is the dinobots you have no idea how they're going to be in Prime. for all we know at the minute Swoop could be the leader in prime . Or it could be they all get voyagers...or it IS just another character with that name in japan (which is the more likely at this stage)

    Isn't that what Hasbro's doing? I figure Takara will follow suit, save for deluxe figures, Takara's boxes are the same, at least they look the same. Any rid figure that isn't part of the powerizer line probably won't come with an Arms Micron, but will be carded like the rest.

    In Japan, Swoop's name has usually been "Swarp", right? Maybe somewhere along the line someone saw "S warp" and decided it was "Swoop"? It could just be a Skywarp repaint of Voyager Starscream?

    A Voyager Swoop might be nice - the only thing I'd ponder is that now Voyagers are so small he'd be barely bigger than Energon Swoop and might be the same size as the G1 toy probably.

    I suppose it's to much to hope for Weaponizer Sludge &/or Grimlock :)

    Honestly, Skywarp makes a hell of a lot more sense to me, but eh...


    I'm not one to count my protoforms before they land, so I guess we'll see. In either case, moar toys is a good thing. :)

    Swoop could be the Japanese name for Dreadwing.

    Swoop?

    Well that's interesting. Unless he's a repaint of someone, I hope we get the other Dinobots, as well as a Hasbro release.

    Autobot Swoop is Dreadwing?

    It's probably a new Autobot named Swoop. Not every name has to have G1 connections.

    Not totally impossible, but TakTomy has been diverting from the English TF names less and less ever since Optimus Prime became "Optimus Prime" over there.

    Heh.

    There's already an EZ Collection listing for Dreadwing, so the Japanese name for Dreadwing would appear to be Dreadwing...

    Hmm i dont know how to feel about this. It could mean if it is a prime swoop figure we wont see FOC swoop (if he was planned at all) which could spell bad news for other FOC dinobots showing up. On the other hand it could mean we get both versions and to be fair i do collect prime toys too.

    No. Hasbro's FoC stuff has entirely different cards from Prime, we've seen them. It might end up being part of the Generations line we've been promissed for 2013, but they're definately seperate from Prime over here.

    It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. I'm thinking the most likely answer is this is a mistake still, but there's just enough chance it's not to make your ears perk up a little and pay attention.


    -ZacWilliam, ideally I'd want Deluxe Swoop, Voyager Slug, Snarl and Grimlock, and Leader Sludge. But that's not likely to ever happen. Heck I'll be pleasently surprised and thrilled if we get all 5 in any form. :)
