    Thanks for the review man! Looks great and you've just about convinced me to get it, though the joint tightness has me worried. Any stress marks or anything popping up on yours?

    Yeah I noticed that, can't get it to budge though. Does seem to be on a hinge but if it is sure is difficult to open. I've tried pushing it from inside the head and it still won't move so I think its just detailing meant to evoke the original figures cockpit location.

    I've checked everything on him regarding the especially tight fitting parts and no visible stress marks so I think they're just simply really tight but not to the point something is gonna break. But like I said in my vid its easy enough to just take a simple knife or some other tool and trim them down if anyone is worried.

    While I like the G-1 blockiness of the figure, the fact he's bigger than Warden puts me off. I'll wait to see what FP has in store for him.

    it's not his fault, Warden is too damn small... and that's because it has weird, short legs. (that's why I passed on it myself)

    you can still peg the legs on his back when he's in his "G1" configuration? (not croc chest)... can you please take a picture of that from the rear? I'm strongly considering this purchase

    Can he still transform without removing the beast legs if you use the alternate G1 robot mode?

    He can transform to his regular robot mode without doing so but if you want the g1 mode you have to unpeg the legs from his shoulders and peg them on to the beast head.

    Edit, here's what his extra hands in his beasty feet legs are for:

    In case you want him quad wielding haha.

    I hadn't given this much thought, but after seeing Peaugh's review... WOW!! He is even slightly bigger than Warden... Got to have this. I love the extra set of hands as well. Very nice touch.

    Does anybody have a Swamper that doesn't have paint rub on it's dorsal plates? If not, has anyone been able to match the shade of grey necessary to repaint them?

    Just got him in today and I'm loving him (also, his little headmaster's feet peg together for head mode, yay! ^^
    But... has anyone else had problems with the headmaster's hip joints popping loose very easily? I'm debating using some Future on them, but am curious if this is happening for anyone else?
    ...
    But he is so awesome, I love him^^ Big and beefy and poseable^^

    Yes my headmaster's legs are popping more than 80's throwback.

    Swamper himself is glorious and the way they use his rear croc legs is inspired.
