Voyager Swoop is good because it means maybe they will do OTHER Dinobots as Voyagers!

If it is the Dinobot, I don't think Voyager is good fit for Swoop, who is supposed to be the small and fragile one of the group.

Swoop may be the smallest of the Dinobots, but even the smallest of the Dinobots is at least as tall as your tallest normal Autobot.

Besides which, his wings will take up some mass.

Dare I hope for five voyager Dinobots?

I was informed the proper way of romanizing of the name gives you "Swerve" not "Swoop".

So, red and white Breakdown?

That's a safety rating, not a content rating; and it probably just means that it hasn't been safety tested at all in the UK.

I want a MTMTE style Swerve a bit more than a Swoop, but there's no Prime remold that would get us him and a Voyager would be an ill match even if it were a new mold.

-ZacWilliam, thinks he'd maybe take a Bot Shots Swerve over a Voyager. Small, rounded and sd work for him. icon-hotrod.gif

Well, no one's a bad mode for Aligned Swerve since we have no idea what he's like yet. I was just saying that I would be interested in a mold that can pass for G1 MTMTE Swerve and Prime Breakdown is a terrible choice for that.


-ZacWilliam, no, there's no reason an Aligned Swerve should resemble the MtMtE design, but I wish it would is all. icon-hotrod.gif

Well, Bummer...

At any rate, we are already getting a proper Classics Swerve from Generations Kup. My money is on a Bulkhead repaint for this one.

There'll be a Classics one from Generation Kup (new head) for the Asian Market this year. We have seen the head-mold on Kup's instructions before, and a pickup truck is a good alt. mode for Swerve IMHO. That said, I'd love an MTMTE-styled one too, he is just adorable.

Kup doesn't do it for me as Swerve at all either. I have a connection to Swerve in two ways: The tiny stout minibot toy I've had since I was a kid, and the tiny stout minibot with the big personality from MtMtE. Any Swerve that's not tiny stout and cute just completely misses all the nostalgia/love I have for the character.


-ZacWilliam, the Kup mold NEEDS to be done as Electro anyway. That's its perfect match.

Dang, I was REALLY hoping for Swoop.

Well, I still assume that the FoC line will contain Grimlock. He's getting a HUGE push in the marketing, it seems, just like Bruticus, and a Bruticus configuration for his component bots has been confirmed.
That's more of a SMALL tick... BUT IT'S STILL A TICK!
