- “Hey, we Dinobots gotta stick togerther!”
Swoop was a member of the brutal Lightning Strike Coalition Force—like his teammates, until he was taken captive by Shockwave and forcibly changed into a Dinobot. And, like Grimlock, he is a powerful warrior, and though the other Autobots undoubtedly think of him as dim, he's at least enthusiastic about fighting Decepticons. But unlike Grimlock, Swoop enjoys his new form, revelling in the power and speed of his new pterosaur alternate mode.
Once he had a veichle mode of a Cybertronian jet, but after being experimented by Shockwave, Swoop was reformatted with a beast mode of Cybertronian Pteranodon.
