Swerve is the only one I'm remotely interested in, but I already have the Chevy Aveo one as my classics Swerve.

Springer and Cliffjumper both look lame as hell, those heads just look wrong on those bodies.

Wheelie's color scheme looks nice, but that mold doesn't fit the character at all.

No, no, no aaaaand no! The problem I have with these is that the characters have some pretty signature design features and these molds irreversibly belong to the original owners. They don't look like who they're meant to be. In Cliffjumper's case that's not such a problem, but at the same time I wouldn't know which collection to put him in.

Seconded. I'm kinda considering this for a Classics stand-in. I'm already using RiD Arcee as my Classics Chromia, and a couple Animated figures (Swoop and Arcee) so design aesthetic is not of high concern. I kinda dig the mixed look. In this case, it would serve to distinguish Cliff even further from Bumblebee, which I like. Someone earlier mentioned Alternity Cliffjumper, I've been considering him for this spot as well. GDO Cliff is cheaper though.

No love for Swerve or Wheelie.

My Botcon 2007 Springer will keep his spot, thankyou.

And what the bloody heck does GDO stand for?

yeah, I'd jump at the chance to get some more weapons on him and a couple of proper legs. They could even...if they were super-sneaky, somehow engineer a couple weapon pods and boots that added on to the vehicle mode...maybe making it a vaguely car-like thing? Not that I'm bothered, Springer is "the mighty helicopter" I'm after, but were he to have some shoes he'd be improved a bit.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Shoes :lol: . Since his feet fold up on his shins i would imagine it been quite an easy task for HR to design some new boots to clip on his legs maybe give him some extra height throw in a laser rifle , rotor sword , new head (even though this head is pretty damn good) i'm sure it would be another must have kit.

:-?
What with the repaint/redeco business that has happened with Ironhide/Kup via the TF Prime molds, I was wondering if anyone would mind seeing the Asia GDO Swerve made up as Classics/Generations Ironhide?

Could the Classics Ironhide head be removed and popped onto the Asia Swerve with perhaps a touch more red paint on his torso?

I just need to track down a Wheelie to complete the Deluxes...

As for GDO, I was under the impression it stood for Generations Direct Order or Generations Distributed Overseas?
