    I recently obtained a Red Snarl and a Green Slag. I am going to get the blue Grimlock as well eventually. My question is, were alternate colors/designs/versions of Sludge and Swoop ever made? if so, where could I find one that won't cost a fortune?

    Thanks

    Nope. The alternate colors were from the G2 releases and neither Sludge nor Swoop came out again in G2.

    I don't know what you're referring to. The generally known winged Sludge is a knockoff.

    And yeah, since Sludge and Swoop weren't part of the G2 line-up, they never saw alternate colourschemes.
    However, Grimlock, Slag and Snarl all got three different colour releases in G2. First, they were all released in the original silver grey, only with G2 faction tampos.
    Grimlock also saw a blue version and a dark teal, while both Slag and Snarl were issued in red and green.
