    Just a simple energon repaint that I think Hasbro should have done. Divebomb just screams to be made into the condor tapes. Sadly I gave both of these away as contest prizes. So I'll have to look into redoing them since I think they both came out rather well. Forgot that I did a blue/gray one as well, and that I have my orginal Laserbeak posing with Energon Megs.

    well, that was Fun Publications that did those, not Hasbro. You're sort-of right, but I think he was meaning where people could go to the store and pick them up at retail.

    I think these turned out great. These have always been something I think I'd like to do some day, but my list is just so long already hehehe

    Thanks, I actually do think that I have two or three Divebombs in my pile waiting for me to do something with them. I already have a laserbeak, and wanted to redo my Buzzsaw after that who knows. Personally I prefer to do custom characters since alot of people already do the obvious repaints, among them Hasbro.

    And yes I know they were redone as part of the over priced botcon set, but I like mine alot more and think they're far more true to the orginal. I think my favorite part of them is the clear colored wing blades.

    It was based off the microchange (might be thought of as diaclone) knockoff blue/gray condor tape. Squawktalk is greenish teal, so I rather lean towards a custom character.

    Generally I make it a point to not do G1 customs, much much rather do my own characters so it feels like I own them to some extent, I like to create back stories and what not for them

    Do you have the Takara version of Divebomb? Just ask cause he's Blue too, just differently than yours.
