At San Diego Comic Con it was revealed that the series of Asia only exclusive Generations toys (at least most of them as it doesn’t look like we are getting Voyager Brawn or the G1 deco Leaders Ironhide and Starscream) are coming to Toys R Us this fall. However, since I didn’t know that, I did pick up the Legends (Bluestreak, Hoist, Motorbreath, and Thundercracker) and Deluxes (Cliffjumper, Springer, Swerve, and Wheelie).
Transformers Generations Deluxe Swerve
Mold Used: Swerve is made from the Transformers 2010 Generations Deluxe Kup mold with a new head.
Vehicle Mode: Swerve looks magnificent. The attention to detail with the white painted truck bed and the black hood is perfect. I have to wonder if some third party company might do an accessory pack for these Asian exclusives and include a cap for the truck bed. That would be awesome. Even without it though, Swerve looks great.
Robot Mode: The red, white and black really looks nice in robot mode, and the head sculpt is great. I don’t think the head looks much like G1 Swerve though. It would have been nice if it did, but I guess you can’t have everything.
Overall: If Hasbro is paying any attention, this is the kind of toy you reuse molds for. Awesome.
