Thanks to the efforts of fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade, we now have pictures of the box that Entertainment Earth's Transformers Select Series exclusive Red Swoop will be shipped in when he's available this March!

Transformers News: Packaging Revealed For Transformers Generations SELECTS Series Red Swoop

As you can tell from the images it's just an ordinary brown box... But a brown box with symbols relating to the Power of the Primes line! You can see all the Prime symbols present and Cybertronian writing, which according to Sabrblade, when translated says: "Transformers".

Red Swoop is a redeco of Deluxe Class Swoop as released in wave 1 of the Power of the Primes line. He is fully compatible with all combiner torsos released during the Prime Wars lines. Entertainment Earth is the exclusive distributor for him and Ricohet (who is out the following April and who is a redeco of Power of the Primes deluxe Jazz)

What do you think of this? A nice box to keep other parts in? Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

I wonder if the box insert will be grey foam or a plastic insert? Will the plastic insert be a premium clam shell or just like retail figures with the figure held in with plastic ties.

I guess we have to assume Ricochet will be the same.

The box is cool looking and definitely conveys that exclusive figure vibe, but will end up in my closet with all the other boxes, including the cool boxes of last year's exclusives. I really wanted to display them "spine" out to make the combined image, but I just don't have the room for boxes and figures.

I'm still torn on keeping my Rwoop preorder honestly :-?

It's very reminiscent of the boxes the club exclusives came in. I hope that means it has the nice foam cusioning.

I’m probably not going to get this guy because I already have the Power of the Primes Swoop. Going to get Ricohet though

I've seen the gold SS VW Bee at a Gamestop here in the US for like 70 bucks, and I know someone else here on the boards has also encountered the same thing, so I guess them getting exclusives isn't that far-fetched?

I was under the impression that they were going start carrying them, maybe just exclusives and maybe just in Canada. I know that they have slowly been getting more and more into the collectible market.

I just haven't seen any and was excited to hear if people where finding TFs at GS. You know, one more place to add to the hunt.

I'm not wasting any money on these tiny Dinobots. The Dinobots should have been the Titan class instead of Predaking. Hasbro screwed up so I didn't buy any of them. I'll give my money to 3rd party instead.

In a way I was happy with the deluxe dinos - they were more affordable that way - I would've had sludge as a second voyager or even leader and he'd served as the body of vulcanicus

I like the red swoop as it makes the team feel more cohesive, though I'll keep my blue swipe cos of the cartoon. Loved the little saunter he took on Cybertron with spike...

I had been saying that since their release. Just because Grimlock is the leader, doesn't mean he has to be the torso! Sludge was bigger anyway! Besides, Grimlock makes a horrible torso.

Can you name any teams where the leader doesn't form the torso (or part of it at least)? All scramble City style teams have the leader as their torsos.

Scrapper / Devastator ;)

see...you put the "SC" qualifier after your initial statement... True, to my knowledge this has been a constant up until now, but basically non SC combiners show us that, while the symbolism of the leader being central (physically and figuratively)to the team is strong, it is not necessary.

How many non sc combines are there though? I think even the Micromasters combines had the leader be either the one who sat in the chest :-?

I mean I know the first two Devy and Raiden...but after that?

Lots. Plenty in this list who aren't Scramble City combiners, even if you exclude the listed two-member combiners.
