Swoop may be simple mentally, but when it comes to blasting Decepticons to tiny bits from the air, his lack of intelligence doesn't seem to hinder him at all. He tends to be the first to strike, scattering Decepticons and keeping them panicked while his partner Grimlock sneaks up on them. Then Swoop joins in on the ground, tearing into their opponents with claws and teeth, either separately, or combined into the brutal Mega-Dinobot.
- Grimlock & Swoop (Mega, 2005)
- Swoop transforms from the usual pterosaur (this time equipped with a pair of giant Jetfire-style scramjets formed by the robot-mode legs) into a robot. He can also form the lower body of the combined robot Mega-Dinobot. He was available only in a Mega-class multi-pack with Grimlock.
- The Grimlock/Swoop set was originally intended to be released in the Universe line, as their original Generation One incarnations. However, a variety of factors shuffled the set into Energon and new-character-dom.
- This set was not "mech-designed" or engineered by Takara employees, a rarity for normal-series Transformers toys.
