~ ROTF Transformers Swerve



Swerve is a Autobot scientist. Swerve's alternative form is a Corvette Stingray concept car. Yes!!! A concept car !!! He is actually a repaint of Sideswipe. I am glad that Hasbro improved their TF variation by creating a different head design for different character.


The car has transparent headlamps.



Bottom view of the car.


I feel that this repaint looks more like the G1 color scheme of Sideswipe.

Great detail on his arms and hands.

Check out the details on his legs !!!


The "mech- alive" feature applied at his knees. The knee shiled pad will move up and down if you move the lower part of his leg up and down.

His face has very good details. I love it =)

Now Swerve looks like an archer xD


The only problem that I notice in this figure is quite difficult to make a good action pose. It has balancing issue due to his "roller" foots.

I love this view and I actaully prefer this repaint compared to Sideswipe. Anyway, I would definitely recommend this Sideswipe/ Swerve.
Overall comments:
Pros:
  1. Great weapon and knee gimmick.
  2. Detail face design.
Cons:
  1. Very difficult to pose the figure due to stability issues.

Fuiyoo! I quite like this Swerve, thanks for sharing the photos, bro. I think I saw this bootleg version at the vegetable market, if I am lucky enough I will get it and do some review. Just to compare how terrible the bootleg quality are. :P
