    Depends on how big you want your swoop to be. Here are some pics from a few months back, maybe posted previously, maybe not.
    DB96BA75-0187-4A80-9DC6-D2EF94104751.jpeg

    Two gigapower swoops and an older bullsfire blue swoop in front next to MP08. Think that was the only figure from that company, however the shift of MP to base their line to MP10 released a little later, even made their grimlock too short and that’s who I think bullsfire swoop (and potentially any other dinos they had planned?) was intended to match with.

    A bling blingy pic that also has a chrome Prime MP10 KO and FT soar (on far right).
    FT swoop is about same height as MP10.

    A1C1ADF2-364E-4A79-AB17-D5098933B794.jpeg

    The other mentions you might come across 3P wise for swoop are from the combiner sets of dinobots...

    Toyworld swoop (and rest of dinos) went ‘best’ with MP10V at the time since they were about his height (unfortunately, slightly shorter than that prime). I couldn’t find all from that TW set when siege prime came out, but I presume it would look great size wise, but not necessarily aesthetically alike. I think they’re rereleased under the Zeta brand of former TW designers.

    GCreation combiner dinos have a swoop, that I never handled.

    Potp & OSKO potp dinos too small for your MP08, even without his scoria boots.

    Oh, yeah, Hound and BBMovie Prime are on ShowZ. Ordered my Hound yesterday.
    Also threw in Papa Toys Reflector since I've been wanting to get one for ages now. Can't wait to get them!

    Huh. Apparently they added elbow articulation there. Interesting. Does the head move too?

    Yes. :)

    Here's more of those windup animals. They walk a few steps, transform, roll, then transform and walk some more.

    and on a side note I bought these because I miss GIJoe :)

    and I should probably get a Siege figure to replace Blurr, any suggestions?

    I agree with Sideswipe. Feels like he's the face of deluxe class in this line.

    Sideswipe is my vote as well. Also, I just imagine you having all of your deluxe example guys lined up in one pic JUST in case, lol.

    Sideswipe is an obvious choice. Also, he'll make all your KOs look bigger, because most of the Siege Deluxes are really short.

    I like those little Megabloks-style guys, too... for the same reason. I've seen lots of GIJoe customs made from them! Although they have really stumpy proportions, they're also weirdly really close to scale with the MP Autobot cars.

    Would Siege Ironhide be closer to the size that we're used to though?

    Possibly... but the goal is a figure that most will have for comparison.

    Why not both? So we have comparison for both size systems.
    Altough since most of your offerings are voyager and larger or legends I guess it doesn't matter much.
