    First, huge props to Sculpt-Bot for the idea of using this mold...

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/324306-masterpiece-swoop-toon-version.html

    which in my opinion has been the best version to capture Swoop.


    This is my first, of many Anime inspired customs, that is almost finished:)  Love them or hate them:) 

    I am still waiting on the "UPGRADES"... BOOM BOOM BAM!! I will post more pics with they show up..

    I have taken the Universe Silverbolt mold, cut it up and added a double ball joint to the waist and chest. Made the head based off of a Alt hound mold. Also used the hands. I used a bunch of random Gundam and zoid parts, along with some styrene.

    I scratch built the wings with styrene and attached them with a balljoints for a huge range of movement.

    The crest on the beak "transforms" with a scratch built lever to lower itself on the beak to clear his bot face. The dinohead is also on a balljoint.

    Painted with kandy red, metallic black, gold, and some flat grays...I have a few things to touch up here and there was well. I went with red because, as much as I love the cartoon, I like the comic Dinobots much more.


    So updated with sword and gats..

    Fantastic work! I love the extra joints in the torso... going the extra distance really makes a difference!

    This looks like a perfect Swoop, and I can barely see Silverbolt in it anymore. The wings are spectacular and you've really nailed down both modes. I love it!

    I can't believe that was a Silverbolt at one time. Those wings are beautiful...everything is. Nice work!
