Default Toy Review - POTP Swoop (Red)

Dinobot Red Swoop
Series - Generations
Sub-line - Power of the Primes
Size/class - Deluxe
New/remould/redeco - Repaint of POTP Swoop
Wave - N/A
Released here - No (Selects online mail-away exclusive, released May 2019)
Approximate Retail Price - $30
Approximate Size - 14cm
Allegiance - Autobot
Sub-Group - Dinobot
Alt-mode - Robotic Pteradon
Main Features/Gimmicks - gestalt limb
Main Colours - Grey, red, black
Main Accessories - sword, gestalt fist

Thoughts
* The lighter grey doesn't look as nice as the darker grey on the original
* The joints on mine are much looser than on my original
* The pterosaur mode's head isn't loose and stays in place
* I wish that they'd omitted the gestalt hand in favour of a gun (even if it's identical to POTP Slag/Sludge's gun)

Oooohhh yyyeeeaaahh, the red chest on this toy just looks SO GOOD!
Standing next to my other CHUG Dinobots it feels like Swoop is finally sporting the team uniform.

I wonder if there's still the problem of the loose joint making the jaw fall open?

Not on mine. Everything else is loose though, but not the jaw.
