    Swervmania is overrated. So far he's just a guy who talks too much. Woo... what a clever character. :bowdown: 

    Gears was an "actual" character. He was actually the first Transformer to get any kind of vivid portrayal in the Marvel TF comics, which is a bit of a benchmark of sorts. Learn your history, son... instead of just bein' compulsively snarky all the time. ;)

    Bah. Swerve has been more interesting to me in three issues of a comic then Gears was... well, ever.

    Don't mean I don't want both of them though :)

    Let's face it people... and Hasbro. These guys make much better looking "Changing Robot's" now, then Hasbro did back in the 80ties. Right? Or am I saying something that is not aloud by Hasbro? COME ON PEOPLE!!! Face the fact. Competition is good and it is proven right here.

    I had always thought (or remember reading) that the PP stands for partner project, meaning that another group produces the figure but uses the iGear name to sell/distribute it.

    <---Don't listen to me though. I'm sure Sidbeckett and others can shed some light on it.

    Maybe it's time for an intervention.......just step in and take it over, or help out. Whatever it takes to get the product out there y'know?

    And the price indicates that he'll be 'scout' sized like Brawn and Cosmos instead of the 'legends' size YYYUUUUUUUSSSS! ^_^

    I keep hoping they'll put the first two out in this new taller scale. I'd snatch 'em up then where I passed before.

    And he was still about as interesting as bread.

    Pot calling the kettle black? I think so.

    *highfive*

    Hasbro makes better changing robots than Hasbro did in the eighties.

    "Aloud?"

    I don't think, no matter how much fans love 3rd party stuff, it will ever truely be competition to Hasbro. Hasbro has way more demographics than just fans, and it's not like all fans are exclusively devoting their money just towards 3rd parties and not Hasbro products.

    Yeah when everyone else figured out the head turn that was a thought that occured to me as well. Like someone else said I'd love an upsized ragger with battle mask as well. Plus an IDW Swerve.

    The face/'head' rotates 360 degrees so it can turn and - presumably - be obscured in altmode (unless they have an alternate expression/face on the other side.)

    Still would like a smaller one, but I will order this, Gears and Prowl were my first two transformers as a kid, so getting this is a no brainer, even if I would like a legends sized one at some point.

    Yeah I know. I think it is time to put a foot up someones butt to get things moving. It is not a good look for business.

    But I like this Gears figure. I am glad iGear decided to upscale these
