    I've noticed with the Gigapower dinos that if you don't pre order, they always go up in price once released.

    Pretty. Very tempted to get the red one (it does come with a gold chrome beak?).

    Swoop is one of my favourite three Dinobots and I never liked the FT version that much (way too much diecast and very poor feet). But I dislike the size of the GP version. Too big for my taste -- but then the FT version are already too big for my taste.

    Still, he looks very pretty.

    The red one looks so awesome!
    But I see a paint chip on the helmet in the first video. I hate paint marks / chips and both my Guttur and Graviter have them (don't have Grassor). So QC is still an issue with GP.

    The helmet seems prone to paint chips due to transformation. GP will give out replacement non painted helmets (or heads) made in a similar colour (prolly not shiny red?) in future.

    Good to see the Red one boxed and finished. I ordered Red to keep my Giga Dinobots as Toy versions while Fanstoy Dinos can be more Toon.

    But all these pics makes me want to get Blue Swoop.

    240p? What is this? a review for ants?

    His face looks better in videos at least so that's promising.

    1. I don't think the aesthetics would match.
    2. You are walking on a slippery slope there. Once you've gotten a taste of Giga, you might be tempted to just replace your Dino lineup.

    Nah, I had their Snarl and sold him off. The only way I'd consider going in for the full set is to have FT in dino mode and Giga as bots.. or vice versa.

    Transformation seems to be easy, simple and effective. In 2019 it's very uncommon LOL...
    But also very welcome with such a big figure.

    Though obviously not true for everyone, I can attest to this hahaha. I got giga sludge cus he was going for such a good price and wanted to get a feel for how he was (I already had all the FT dinos), I figured that I may not like him and could just sell him to someone who did want him... now here I am with the 3 dinos currently released, their swoop on the way and anxiously waiting for ther Grim :D  hahaha I do still have my FT dinos tho, they are in bot mode :)
