    Here they are after two months of having to damn much homework to work on them, my Dynobots. Many thanks go out to those whose work inspired these guys, but especially to FrenzyRumble's excellent Sludge, which I more or less blatantly ripped off.

    I'd also like to say a few words in memory of poor Swoop. After an encounter with some terrible primer and a subsequent chemical bath to remove said primer, his plastic has been left quite brittle and he has become almost untransformable. Whenever I can lay hands on a new Terradive, I'll be redoing Dive... er, Swoop.

    Yes, very nice paint jobs. They really look more like a team with the uniform paint schemes. Wish more teams had that.

    Very nice i like the ideas there. I was wondering how did you get the heads where they taken from any G1's.
    I do like they would be cool as a Generations box set. Hasbro and Takara should start thinking the same ideas as us.

    Grimlock, Sludge, and Slag are G1 heads with a hole drilled in the bottom to fit on the existing ball joint. Slag also has some extra plastic glued on and shaped, since he only had half a head.

    I didn't have a Swoop to behead, so his is actually the gestalt head from PCC Huffer. And because Snarl's G1 head is so freaking tiny (befitting a Stegosaur, I suppose...) I kept the Hotshot head and resculpted it a bit.

    Thanks for all the comments, everyone!
