I'm not going back to the PCC line (not yet any way)but I am reviewing Legends class Swerve with Flanker.
For a time the legends class figures came with Minicon partners (wonder where they got that idea from?), we got the usual suspects, Prime, Bumblebee etc but we also got some re-do's of some classic G1 minibots.
Cosmos, Tailgate and this weeks subject, Swerve.
Swerve transforms from a red non descript pick up truck into a robot. He is partnered with Flanker who I'll get into later.
Swerve is molded in red and white plastic and has various paint apps. It's a good mix of colours and helps him stand out even among my limited "in hand" collection.
That face is ripped right from the pages of MTMTE, that smirk! The only problem I have with it is the lack of paint app on the mouth makes it look a little weird. It seems like he should have his mouth open a bit but it's all white.
So the rest of robot mode Is nicely done. Some well sculpted chest and torso details and some standard articulation.
It's a good robot mode but apart from the head there isn't much to talk about really.
Flanker transforms from a jet drone to a gun and then a robot.
He's molded in blue plastic and has a selection of white and red paint apps.
Robot mode really doesn't do much. The arms swing up and down and that's about it. It's got some decent sculpting and that's about it. Not a lot to say about it, I don't like it as a robot. He spends most of his time as a gun.
As a pairing these guys are ok. Flanker drags Swerve down. Swerve by himself would be a must buy. With Flanker he still is but just be aware you'll have a Mini-Con with him that doesn't live up to Swerves level.
Next week I'm doing a first, I'm reviewing a figure I don't own!
He sometimes takes epic trips and tells tales of these sagas often.
When not watching people in spandex fight each other he paints miniatures, go HERE to take a look.
