The newly revealed Transformers Studio Series toys were on display at Wondercon allowing fans to check them out.
Toy Shiz posted a video of the various toy displays which includes Swoop. Below are screen caps of that video, giving us our best look yet at the figure in both modes which are very G1 accurate. Preorders for this figure go up next thursday.

Looks great, can't wait to get this guy
Can't decide if I want him to keep both swords or if I wanna give one to Slug. Or maybe I'll give it to Snarl and give snarls sword to the tiger stripe Grimlock. Decisions decisions

Wow. Finally.
Here are my initial thoughts, starting with the criticisms.

The wings in dino mode do look a bit short.
From top to bottom, the torso in dino mode looks a bit thick.
Having a blaster would’ve been nice, but I can understand the swords.
The bot mode really should have forearm panels.

Obviously none of these come anywhere close to being “deal-breakers”. But I also wouldn’t necessarily call them nit-picks either. For being Leader class with substantially less engineering and parts than the other 4, at least a few items listed above should’ve been non-issues.

For me, as far as what can be seen in these stills, the positives far outweigh and out-number any negatives.
The highlights for me are definitely the bot mode, and the face and head sculpt…. Again based on what I can see, Hastak nailed the look of his face and head…. This alone makes me really happy. The whole bot mode is fantastic, the proportions look to be on point, and I like that the torso collapses together for dino mode.
So I am beyond excited to get this figure.
I’m also thankful that Snarl and Swoop have been the last two released since they’re my favorites.

Looks like my ranking of these Dinobots is:
1: Snarl and Swoop
2: Grimlock
3: Sludge and Slag

I can’t wait to see images of all 5 together.

Confounded , Infernal, slaggin' Box art pics, not showing his number deisgnation... :BANG_HEAD: :lol: . You know thats gotta be on purpose. But Im guessing its going to be SS 86 26. Although we now live ina world with two 86-24's (Buzzworthy label aside), so I'm not sure why I still keep track, Hasbro obviously dosen't :lol:

I did see that there is a swivel hinge on each wing that would allow that last section to rotate into a different position; it may not make the wings look longer, but they can be put into more of a dive-bombing, aggressive look.
This is a guess, but it’s what I’m seeing.

So people on Facebook and Reddit can now stop complaining that we havent' seen him and now complain that

*his wings are too short
*he only comes with 1 other sword

or other complaints. Yaaaay!

For my part, not that there was a whole lot of doubt, but I'm sold. I'll preorder him ASAP on Thursday. Swords are whatever as far as I'm concerned, I got the solid red Nonnef swords for everyone (including Snarl so he'd match the others) so if anything now I'll have a surplus Grimlock sword. I could give it to the tiger stripes version I suppose.

Overall, he looks pretty good.

I really hope we get a red version eventually, to go with comics Grimlock.

Why couldn't they give us a couple of Dinobot group shots?

I'm a little bit disappointed for Swoop. For its simplicity and hollowness, Hasbro could've/should've provide the missing weapons of his brethrens. I personally am not too mad about missing swords, it's Snarl's gun that I wanted.

Oh well, it's in Hasbro's habit of skimming out on design/accessories for a last member of a group, like Menasor breakdown, so I half expected it.

Hastak definitely erred towards the character sheet. the wings aren't necessarily too short widthwise but they're definitely thinner along the lengthwise axis than they ought be. If they were to do a toy color version I'd really like to see the wings retooled because while they look *fine* as they are, the point where the wings "connect" to the body at the bottom should be further down.

Posted by DeathReviews on April 1st, 2024 @ 10:58am CDT
Taking a closer look at Swoop from different angles, it seems that they did indeed follow the animation model pretty closely, except in one aspect. And that's the wings.

I add the disclaimer, that this is Sunbow we're talking about. And they're notorious for going off-model. But with Swoop at least, I noted some consistency. The official model drawing for Swoop is this one:

Image

As can be seen for the Dino mode, the wings have a distinct triangular web connection to the shoulders, and to the back dino legs/claws. There are also additional angles near the shoulders/neck to give it a more pinion/webbed appearance.

But in the show, the lazy animators rarely followed that setup. Instead, the wings connected in a fairly straight line without any additional bends or angles. There was also a distinctive three-hinge setup for each wing. It could fold where it joined to the body. It also folded near the middle of each wing. But there was also another hinge half-way between the second hinge, and the wing tip. And in the show, they USED that extra hinge to give Swoop's wings more flapping/curling ability, as shown in this screenshot:

Image

The 86 Leader Swoop figure seems to be trying to mimic the image of Swoop shown at the top left of his model sheet, which shows him looked at from the top and down. I would rather they had followed the other model images which show expanded wings, and the tri-hinge setup. Nitpicking, maybe. But if they were really going for 'on-screen' accuracy, then that setup was the one the animators actually used for the episodes wherein he appeared. It gave him both a wider wingspan, and more articulation. And it looks like they COULD have done it pretty easily.

Blaster was underwhelming, kinda funny that this is his 3rd release of the exact same mold. I won't get it the same way i did not get the first 2, but glad for people getting the cartoon colors.

Swoop looks pretty good, hopefully he will keep the trend of odd numbered dinobot releases actually being good.

Also, I hope we get a red version, I would like that one to go on my Beast Wars shelf.

In that case, wouldn't the smaller Selects POTP Red Swoop be more size-appropriate? Since The Veteran was a Maximal rather than an Autobot.

True, and I do have him, but I use a spare Blue Swoop as the Veteran and I use Red Swoop as Ptero, and they are arms to my Magnaboss, seeing as how Tigatron is on Battle Core Maximus and I do not own Unit-3 yet.

I know these guys were leaked a while ago, but it's still cool to get their announcements. Vector Prime is one of my all-time favorite Transformers characters, so I'm excited to see the Legacy take on him. He has two distinct looks between Cybertron and Aligned/IDW, so it'll be interesting to see what they go for given the lack of a Universe identifier.

I'm also curious whether Hot Shot will be his original body or his Cybetron Defense Team body.

We have quite a few new images to share with you below, all from Hasbro. Firstly, Evan Brooks, the Hasbro designer behind Swoop, wrote an Instagram post about the toy and includes new images. We get a better idea of the wingspan, which seems G1 (show) accurate and we get that important group shot.
Also, we know that Hasui is the Takara engineer behind this release, as with all the other Dinobots. He's the master behind MP 10, HFTD Leader Starscream, Titan Devastator and so much more.

We then have official images of the Studio Series 2024 wave 2 deluxes, voyager and leader from Hasbro, showing their in package images. Enjoy!

Definitely picking up Side Burn and Hot Shot on sight.

The real question is... will they eventually give us the repaints for both? Super Side Burn and Excellion. Hopefully Excellion is easier to Gert this time around than he was originally.

Vector Prime might be interesting. I own the original one, but would like to see what a modern take on him does. At least his soft rubbery wings and sword probably won't be a thing.

Soft and wobbly, sadly, at least the Hasbro Version.

Galaxy Force had apparently a stiffer sword, though I never owned him so can’t confirm that.

The Hasbro version (left) used soft plastic for the sword and wings, while the Takara version (right) used a harder non-bendy plastic.

So it looks like in the original photos from the display at WonderCon, Swoop’s wings weren’t transformed completely; the circular hinge I spotted is used to extend his wings.
In those photos, that hinge is at the back of the wings, but in recent photos, those are in the front (once the wings are opened all the way).
Now I don’t think this makes some ginormous difference, but definitely helps.

I would be on board with this.

I would also like leader FOC Dinobots, though I can wait on them until we finish the live action leader dinobots.

Posted by DeathReviews on April 3rd, 2024 @ 10:24am CDT
Yep, it looks like the designers used the model sheet section that depict Swoop's wings in a configuration that doesn't really follow what they actually did in the cartoon.

Image

In the cartoon, no matter what the model sheet conveyed, they drew Swoop's wings so they reached further back, attaching closer to his rear 'claws'. And the section of the wings which connected to the body were not angled forwards. They went pretty much straight out from the side of the body, tapering slightly inward. This had the wings extending out further, and using a 3-hinge setup for better 'flapping' poses, not a 2-hinge setup.

Image

I wish they'd gone that way instead. It would give Swoop more presence with a wider wingspan, and I'm sure they could have accommodated the 3-hinge wings with the engineering and not sacrificed the robot mode's cartoon accuracy.

Image

The 2-hinge setup, combined with the shorter wingspan, diminishes the appearance of the wings by comparison to how he was conveyed, in action, on the series.
Re: Here’s a Better Look at Studio Series 86 Swoop (2178647)
Posted by Sowndwave76 on April 3rd, 2024 @ 5:27pm CDT
I am a bit surprised the wings don’t have 3 hinges…
Sure, the torso expands/collapses, but there is very little transforming in either the arm or leg areas; fewer parts and less engineering overall, and therefore I figured more would’ve gone into the wings and the wing articulation.
Thankfully this doesn’t affect the appearance of the bot mode.

Every one of these Dinobots has at least a slight issue with their dino mode. But considering they are pretty legitimate Leader class figures, it doesn’t seem like these issues could have been adequately addressed in this budget. Even scrapping the couple pack-in figures probably wouldn’t be enough.
I’m confident these are the best Dinobots Hastak will release for a very long, long time.
Anything better will not only be years and years and years and years down the road, but guaranteed they will be much more expensive, without any guarantee they’ll be as large or larger.

I’m very happy with all 5.

One good thing to me about Swoop: he appears to continue the trend of odd number release dinobots being good. He looks great. I am continuing to enjoy him as more photos come out.

If it makes you feel any better, my Autobot 5 pk will be here from Entertainment Earth in 6 days even though I want to say the original ship date was for sometime in July.
Re: Here’s a Better Look at Studio Series 86 Swoop (2178719)

Nabbed Swoop off Gamestop. Last G1 Swoop I'm ever gonna get.

Yes his wings could stand to be longer. I'm hoping for a 3P fix but I wonder how it can be done. I see rivets in there. Honestly, though, all the dinos have their own unique flaws. Grim has missing front teeth. Slag has a gun where the tip of the tail should be. Snarl has their weird tail. Sludge has a hollow belly! It would be inconsistent for Swoop to be perfect!

TBH, though, even if they're all just 10% shy of 100% I'm glad to have the set. I never thought we'd get large, official, Dinobots.
