    Hey guys

    Just got him put back together and couldn't wait to get him on here.

    Nothing really much to say about the build.He's made from a Generations Thrust,G1 Swoop,Universe Hound head and Universe Sideswipes hinges on the knees and Animated Swoops dino feet.

    Now before anyone says anything about the feet,this was the only way I could come up with so that the feet worked in both modes.I figured that the G1 Swoops dino feet acted as his knee so why not.I wasn't to sure about them but they've kind of grown on me.As far as paint.....there was never any wondering in my mind.It had to be toon colors for me!!!!!!!!! That's why the dino eyes and chest are blue instead of red.I've always loved the fact that he was the only one with a blue chest.I don't know why lol.I know his paint isn't exactly G1 but I didn't want an exact paint.Just something resembling it.

    So that's it.I hope you guys like it.Big props again to withprecision for his awesome Swoop that got me motivated to finish up mine.Also to hXcpunk23 for getting me going on this as well.I can't wait to see his finished.And to everyone that posted all the kind words on my wip thread,thanks to all of you

    UPDATE:

    I totally forgot to mention his rocket launchers:banghead: I had to order a pair and they should be here this week.As soon as they're ready I'll update the pics.

    The Classic Seeker body is nice and boxy. Makes for a good Swoop.

    which sideswipe hinges did you use? the legs or the shoulders?

    he looks good. might have to try this though the face probably won't come from Hound on mine as I only own the Henkei version

    this looks really nice man

    one question though....what's up with the round nubs on the upper and lower beak?

    is that for safety or something?

    Glad you like him.I hope he lived up to your expectations!!!!!!!


    Thank you!!!!!!
    Oh damn.Another SD'er in the house lol


    I used the hinges that are on the back of the car mode that allow the license plate are to move.I cut them off and attached them to Swoops knees for the dino feet.

    Yeah,don't cut that guy up lol


    That's the way that he came.I think all the G1s had it like this for safety be cause mine also has it.I thought about shaving it down but I liked it enough to keep as is.Who knows,maybe later down the road I'll shave it down.

    Thanks man!!!!!!
    Glad you're diggin him!!!

    Hey bud!!

    Hope he was worth the wait lol
