    I'd grab the swarm if the 3 pack were cheaper. It's just hard to justify when I feel like it'd be buying 3 of the exact same figure plus I already have Andras and there isn't really anything to differentiate the figures. I would have thought that was a missed opportunity there for xtb. Add in a little something extra if you want ppl to quadruple dip.

    I'd like to buy Curse on his own as I like the ghost Starscream gimmick, but can't justify the spending to go all in on the swarm set.

    Is there a website that has the specific accessories? If the faces are different enough, I would get the Swarm.

    "Hello. My name is Scourge. I'm here to talk to you about a serious problem: Anti-Shellformer Bullying, or ASB."
    "Though I am a shellformer, my spark is still like yours."
    "This is Galvatron. He gets upset when other Transformers bully shellformers."
    "Shut up, ya freak!"
    "Go home, Shelly!"
    "Get out of here! You're not a real Cybertronian!"
    "Mighty Galvatron, it's all right! That was only one rude Autobot changing his voice. It's not the whole crowd!"
    "Yeah, it is! Go away!"
    "Please, mighty Galvatron! You're embarrassing me!"

    Well the images didn't come across but I could see what you were going for by looking over the photos separately and that was great!

    Would you like a Jelly Baby?

    The faces are different on all four. I mean, they are all the same as per the source material, but each Sweep has a different facial expression, both in the mouth and the eyes. Bottomline, they look good on the shelf together and (to a Transformers fan) don't just look like four of the same figure.

    It's nice that Andras and Swarmp pack are getting reissued for those that missed the first run.

    He's a good friend, when I lived in the UK he was part of our pub meet group. He still is.

    They are all exactly the same, they just have different accessories and expression.

    Scourge and his Sweeps look identical- that is the point.
