    The greatest Scout class figure in years. YEARS I say.

    Dude, you think MTMTE sucks, so of course you don't get the appeal. Stop complaining about shit simply because you feel the need to constantly make that clear.

    This figure definitely looks to be up there with one of the greats in the last year or so. I hope I can find him easily enough!

    Usually I wouldn't buy this new legends size class, as it won't fit into my existing legends. But he has the perfect size for my classics collection, as he's a smaller bot to begin with. Totally perfect! Only his first blaster would be missing. I need some order link from somewhere... why does TFSource not carry these? :(

    Looks good, thanks for the pics. Wonder if MakeToys are still pushing ahead with their version.


    I don't think any US retailers have these guys up for pre-order yet.

    I'm not liking the face, but the rest of the figure looks pretty good. Kind of simple even for a Legends class, and even I don't follow the comics anymore to appreciate the character, my addiction to Cyberverse/Legends will still make me pick it up.

    Are you kidding? It's Swerve, deluxe is WAY too big. You want him the same size as Skids?

    And nobody is shocked at all.

    Damn straight. This toy is perfect.

    A Deluxe Swerve doesn't have to be as tall as all the other Deluxes. If designed like Animated Soundwave to be wide in the torso and coming with a somewhat large accessory, you'd get a toy with the mass of a Deluxe and still just the height of a good size Scout.

    Was planning on skipping this guy as the character isn't that memorable for me. But he looks GREAT and I'm a sucker for fun looking earth modes.

    So bought.

    Looking forward to this guy alot!! Only gripe is the white face which can be easily corrected on my own. I've been thinking about updating my display. My classics was organized by g1 cartoon seasons, but have been leaning heavily towards the new idw iteration.

    I pretty much only collect MPs but I may have to get this . . . especially if somebody puts out "My First Blaster."

    I wouldn't say perfect, but he's VERRRRY close. He's got a great overall sculpt and proportions. The lack of a head swivel is what breaks my heart. A character that's basically built his reputation on lovable annoyance needs to be able to look around to harass folks.

    I'm actually more interested to see how the Gears retool will look.
