    I wonder if they could manage the Specter Speeder from Danny Phantom turning into something resembling the Ecto Skeleton from Reign Storm.

    Curious that they didn't show Hot Shot's Cybertron character model and showed Vector Prime from the Covenant not Cybertron.

    The more I see that BBM Shockwave the more I think it could be retooled in the Prime version or is that just me?​

    Well, that's £55 saved in my budget this year. Had him on my wishlist but am severely underwhelmed with Swoop. I might pick him up if he goes on sale or if we get the red colour version. Everything else doesn't interest me. The car bros just look bad to me. Not a fan of this version of Shockwave. Might be interested in Hot Shot and Vector Prime but they'll probably still be a maybe/wait for sale even after reveals. Probably will get RID sideburn but only if looks more like a viper in alt mode. Nucleous I have no clue on but I haven't picked up any of the other rock guys yet.

    So Swoop comes with an extra sword, I will assume for Grimlock? ... beats a half articulated Daniel or Wheelie.

    I really hope we get a good retool out of Sunstreaker. Love the look of the mold, but not too interested in the character.

    Streaker is definitely a “wait for a good sale or go without”.

    TFs are confusing. Even its multiverses have multiverses.

    Loving that new Bumble Bay Megatron btw.

    Didn't realise you had it in front of you. No need to be an arse about it.

    But then will you just leave the Dinobots uncompleted? There won't be a Leader sized Swoop coming again anytime soon this decade, I am betting on that.
    I like all 5 Dinobots, they each have flaws but are easily better than anything third parties had to offer. Swoop is nicely solid and blocky, cartoon accurate but not slavishly so with flat panels, I like it.

    He doesn't. He is not the leaker who posts these things.

    It's pretty clever actually. That Grimlock comes with his own sword, plus swords for Slag and Sludge too - meaning you now have an extra Grimlock sword with Swoop to either give to comic style Grimlock (who I am pretty sure never used it, he only ever used Snarl's sword at the end of G1, when he became an Action Master) or G2 Grimlock from the Toxitron collection. :)

    Unless you're Japan where everything is G1.
    But that just makes it more confusing.

    So, I’ve been doing some thinking on SS86 Swoop here…. Slept on it.
    And I have some thoughts.

    IMG_0237.jpeg

    There’s something about his overall silhouette and proportions that seem…. Off.
    Yet, I’ve checked, and it’s all basically toon accurate!!!
    IMG_0235.jpeg IMG_0234.png

    Even his alt mode!!!

    and yet…. Somehow Core Class Swoop seems to have nailed it better….?

    IMG_0239.jpeg IMG_0240.jpeg IMG_0238.jpeg

    Not sure why… in my eyes anyway…

    Not to mention Fans Toys “Swoop”, an amazing toy I’ve enjoyed for years now!!!

    IMG_0242.jpeg

    and I guess I’d hoped SS86 Swoop would’ve had more proportions or look as FT…? But with a generations “playability”, cuz that’s how SS86 Grimlock feels, compared to his MP version.

    All that said…
    I’m excited for Swoop, and think that once he’s in hand, and with the other Dinobots on the shelf or desk or whatever,
    He’s gonna be great. :D

    With a lot of retooling to give him a bit more bulk it can probably be done and it’d work.

    It doesn’t matter how bad Swoop had come out. I’m already 4 Dinobots deep. There’s no reason not to complete the set at this point.

    Mind you, I don’t think he’s bad at all. I look forward to seeing more pictures. It’s just a shame that they didn’t have the foresight to bring the rest of the team so we could see them all together.

    Yeah, the proportion is off. I think the dino head and chest (both in robot & dino) are too wide. The dino feet are bad and lazy.

    As the least complex member of the dinobots and the last SS86 dinobot, at least on the proportion-wise, I was expecting more though. I feel that SS86 Swoop didn’t get the extra love.
