My TFA Swoop is tight. No loose joints at all.

I really hope Hasbro gives us a Scrapheap type variant to this mold as well. It is an amazing mold, especially being a motorcycle. The only negative I have is really a personal gripe. I wish the right foot had the ability to open and close like the left foot. Shouldn't be a problem though.

Sure there is: by being 1/4 the price and not limited availability.

Warbot: Defender is still available. But, Hasbo's Springer would be 1/4 the cost and probably look like this..

Hasbro's Wreck Gar looks fantastic, I could see them doing a pretty great non-repaint Springer

Very true. I would really liek to see some United/Generations side by side pics for a lot of the figures.

BTW, Darkwing Duck was a great show, I actually went looking for episodes online not too long ago. Classic.

Can the right foot rotate 180?

Great looking figure, I can't wait to add him to my collection. I do also wish his head was the front of the bike but I guess they had to make some concessions with the transformation. It's not too big a deal. I do wonder how Takara's compares, paint-app wise.

Yes, that was my point. Accuracy, not price!

Be fair. Universe's Springer's wings and cannons are meant to fold down behind his back and he doesn't look half-bad.
