We’ve added a new photoshoot to our Transformers toy galleries, and we’re showing off another of the Dinobots from Power of the Primes: Swoop!
Updated for a new generation, Swoop is a personal favorite of mine among the first releases in Power of the Primes Deluxe Wave 1. The dinosaur mode is boxy, but that is completely accurate to the look of the original design in Generation 1, and the design is chock full of molded in details. The robot mode is slender, which fits Swoop perfectly, and the figure takes a refreshingly different approach to the combiner feature compared to every other modern combiner figure. What really drew me to Swoop though was how utterly amazing he looks when mounted on a display stand in either mode – the combination of those wings, the molded in detail, and a decent amount of poseability, means Swoop just looks great on display.
