    Not Swoop related, but preorders for the G1 soundtrack vinyl LP are live on Amazon.

    SS86 Grim's chestplate design would've worked better if the transclearant panel had been a matching colour and opacity to MP Grimlock's, or if that dark smoke grey of the plastic was a paint app over clear with a silhouette section masked off to stay bare clear as a "window" to let the Autobrand show thru properly.

    I'd like to mix and match my Dinobots, but I still want a G1 Swoop.

    We’ll see, none of the complaints matter if everyone still buys him

    Disappointed that Shockwave still has the visible head problem of the Core class figure, and honestly looks like it gets in the way of the turret turning.

    Should I get that one, or a ROTB SS Optimus?

    So, Sideburn is cool right? (translation: If I have to go through another page of Swoop talk I'm going to burst into flames)

    I wonder how people feel about getting RiD figures when Optimus is exclusively a HasLab.

    It's like what one of my fave sups at work say. Negativity is always most vocal because there's a lot to voice. But I'm 110% satisfied with Swoop and it's exactly what I want and haters can rot in hell for all I care!

    If people don't like it then they don't gotta buy it. Increases my chances of finishing the G1 Dinobots!

    I'd be fine with getting Sideburn, if I thought he'd be an RID figure

    Feels like they're gonna have to pair up the RiD guys with some other Optimus at retail, even if it's just a case of releasing some totally unrelated Optimus and just handwaving it by having them in pictures together. Though I backed Omega Prime so doesn't affect me too much personally, give me all the RiD guys.

    Sideburn is my least favorite of the “Next Gen” character archetype, but I would consider getting him…if I had any hope we were getting X Brawn and Prowl.

    Prowl was my favorite, so I’d get him to complete the Bro’s but otherwise I’ll pass.

    I really wish they were releasing it on CD too. Some of us haven't given those up yet.

    Why are you discussing Sideburn on this Swoop thread?

    Probably gonna get Sideburn out of obligation to go with Omega Prime, but only if he goes on sale. The leak descriptions we got of him don't sound too flattering as his alt mode sounds even worse than Shadowstriker's.

    I honestly think he looks a bit too wide in robot mode. He’s sorta like a pancake. I always thought Swoop looked best when he was pretty scrawny but tall, sorta like Animated

    Question on the medallion set - essentially the same thing as the gold-plated ones from 2021?

    I've just realised every single character's name in SS Wave 2 starts with the letter 'S'.
