    Classics Snarl wip UPDATE 04/05/11

    Just thought I'd share this with you guys.It's been a while since I've posted a wip.

    He's made using a Universe Sunstreaker as the base and 2 G1 Snarls.I made him a lot wider and longer then the G1 figure.I'm going for more a IDW Maximal Dinobots type thing as far as the sizes go.I liked the fact that they actually differed from each other based on their dino modes.So naturally Sludge will be the biggest and I made Swoop the smallest.Still a lot of work to do.

    Thanks for looking



    UPDATE 5/5/11:

    Finally got the parts needed for his arm and got it on him.Still a lot of work to do but it's mostly cosmetic now.

    And here's a sneak peek at dino mode.

    Lookin' good so far... the Sunstreaker mold is a good fit for some of the elements you need! Snarl was always a favourite of mine, and I think you're on the right track here. Can't wait to see how it all comes out!

    In the end, it looks like he'll be pretty small though... maybe a slightly thicker Deluxe size? So is Swoop going to be a scout? :)

    looking great so far. I think i especially like it since thats the head I plan on using for my WFC snarl. I think he'd be well served by enlarging the plates on his back. As it stands, they're left looking a little gimpy with the widened body. I'll be watching this with great interest.

    I like the way this is shaping up. Maybe my Slag and your Snarl can get together sometime? :D

    Like what I'm seeing so far. The Sideswipe head even works pretty well for Snarl.

    One of the most creative ideas I've seen in a while :)  I'm liking the way the legs/feet are coming out.

    Thanks!!! Actually he's the tallest deluxe I have.I decided to use deluxe figures for Slag,Snarl and Swoop because Grimlock will be a voyage size and Sludge will be Ultra.I want Slag and Snarl to be close in size but still bigger then Swoop so I used a Universe Thrust figure for himhttp://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/320214-classic-universe-swoop-finished.html.If you put Sunstreaker next to a seeker you'll see the size difference between the 2.I'll get some pics of them together for you



    Thanks!!!! I'll seriously think about the plates.They don't look that bad in person.

    Sure....why not lol!!!!!!1

    Thanks for the props!!!!!

    just out of curiosity what will you be using to make the remaining dinobots? love your swoop by the way, it motivated me to build my take on swoop, looking forward to this and the remaining dinos.

    Slag is almost the same formula as you see here.Like I said I want to keep these 2 pretty close in size.As for Grimlock and Sludge,I'm not exactly sure yet.I'm still planning them up.I do know that Grimlock will be a voyager size while Sludge will be Ultra!!!!!!!

    And thanks for the props on Swoop!!!!!!


    Hopefully not to excited LOL!!!!!!!!! Thanks
