    I know. That is why I held off from collecting the Stunticons. The delay and suckitude of Breakman was the determining factor for me to not purchase any of the 5.

    According to JT Prime, it's still Cybertron Vector Prime, according to the listings

    May have already been discussed to death here but Swoop comes with another sword other than his own?

    Edit: Got it, it's Grimlock's.

    I mean I like his bot mode, but his tank mode gives new meaning to the infamous phrase \"visible head syndrome\"...

    Quick edit of this pic to visualize correctly transformed wings. They're not actually bigger, but they look less stumpy when correctly folded out

    The thing is I want a decent, full set that goes together. The problem with the PotP versions is that I just REALLY hated Grimlock. The rest are fun if small.

    Swoop is okay I guess but I'm more than happy to stick with my POTP version. It looks better and I don't mind him being smaller than his brothers.

    Going out on a limb here, they're going to make a mold that kinda works for either version of Vector Prime, and then make both versions.

    Possibly starting with the less popular Aligned version, to try and get people to double dip.

    Keep an eye in next year's four pack people.

    I gotta agree with you on the Grimlock. I don't usually complain about this stuff, as I'm a consumer who has no say in how the final product is compiled, but GRIMLOCK was lacking. The others definitely delivered. And I look forward to SWOOP.

    Butt-Head imitation: "As far as SWOOP, I like what I see!"

    SWOOP imitation in Michael Bell voice: "Me Swoop say it's about fucking time Swoop get own figure!"

    It's not really the chin that's too big, it's the lower lip that is way out of proportion. I'm in a bit of a rush, so I don't have time to make it perfect, but you can see the difference here:

    Hmmmm. I've been waiting on this one to decide which Swoop to get and the winner is .....

    IMHO, the SS86 makes the same mistakes as FT Soar with the face sculpt, i.e: weird derpy mouth not capturing his 'toon facial likeness ... not to mention return of chin-gate. :confused:  It's been a while since MP Sunstreakertarantino and Ultra Leno, but here we are again ...:rolleyes: :D :p 

    Face sculpt notwithstanding, the real dealbreaker is the surprisingly poor dactyl mode: esp that overly thick/wide beak. o_O 

    Nope, this one just doesn't hit the spot for me and I'd been REALLY looking forward to it. :(

    I'm preordering this on the 4th if I can find a online place that hasn't sold out on me! The rest of you whiners can keep complaining in the mean time.

    This is what happens when you demand 100% fidelity instead of "keep the spirit, but make it better". I'd like to point out the ptero head has 4 different sized lower jaws in that model sheet.
