    I know I know, its not fearswoop but the similarities were WAY to great to pass up the comparison from the gamestop exclusive F-18 "eye of the tiger" skin and the movie fearswoop toy, repaint of Dreadwing toy.


    Here we have Fearswoop:

    and here we have "Eye Of The Tiger" F-18 skin from HAWX 2 gamestop exclusive

    different planes..but the deco is WAY to similar.


    whats everyone think? anyone big enough of a fan to get this just because of the striking similarities?

    Here's a link to Fearswoop.
    You can't hotlink to images on tfu.info.
    I guess I see it, but there's about a gazillion other Decepticon jets that deserve the homage first.

    G2 Hooligan is all I can think of.

    It's more likely an homage to various real world Tiger stripe "demonstrator" or "airshow" paint schemes, just like Fearswoop himself was.

    Yeah ROTF Fearswoop homages G2 Hooligan, they just couldn't use the original name.

    Think Quinjester nailed it though.
