Character Profile
Swoop, along with fellow Dinobots Grimlock and Slag, were created by Issac Sumdac and Megatron. Their bodies were originally display models, animatronics, at a Dinosaur park. After the models were damaged Issac Sumdac had to repair them, during which time Megatron added a few "upgrades". During a fight, the Dinobots were hit with an electro-magnetic pulse, empowered by the Allspark key. This was enough to rip the robot flesh from their bodies, but more importantly gave them sparks.

After Megatron tought Grimlock that cars were bad, and robotic cars were even worse, the Dinobots went on the rampage again. After they were finally stopped, Prowl and Bulkheaed moved them to Dinobot island, so they could live in peace.
Like the other DINOBOTS, SWOOP prefers to be left alone on DINOBOT Island, where he can soar and dive without worrying about the DECEPTICONS taking pot shots at his wings. When he does have to return to the mainland to battle the DECEPTICONS, however, he enjoys the way people scatter when they see his shadow. That, and smashing trees with his ball and chain doesn't compare to the satisfying crunch it makes when it bashes into DECEPTICON armor.

Sonic scream causes shorts out audio sensors.
Ball & chain emits heat capable of melting other robots.
Wings collect solar energy to power weapons
