    Here is my first attempt at remaking/repainting. I decided that if Hasbro wasn't going to do anything with the team, I'd try my hand. I took some Beast Machine bots that have been sitting around and started with a simple repaint. Next, once I find time to get around to it, I plan on going back and adding some detail and stickers.
    First up is Grimlock, from a Tankor.
    Next is Slag from Blastcharge, Sludge from Strika, Swoop from Obsidian and finally Snarl I'm going to do from a Tank Drone, but I'm thinking there will be little modification to that one, just some highlighting and a few new stickers.
    Comments and critiques are more than welcome as this is my first attempt any and all help is appreciated.

    i dont like snarl, the mold just looks off in these pics 4 sum reason.
    as well i think slag and sludge should be switched, since sludge was always broad, buff, and badass, 1 of my favorite tfs. :) :) :)

    I have to agree, but on the opposite spectrum of things - that mold is specifically TANKOR. I'd prefer to see a LOT of modification/kitbashing if you do go with it.

    I really like this concept though, and I look forward to seeing more here!

    Here are some pics of bot mode. I didn't include Snarl as I haven't done anything to the tank drone yet. Sludge/Strka is concerning me because there is some paint chipping, wearing off. I haven't transformed them before now after putting them back together after the initial painting. Swoop has some spots on the arms and shoulders that I missed, but I'm liking the darker coloration there, gives him a "dirty" look. Also considering leaving the decepticon symbols in place, thinking of referring to them as maybe a post "Dark Age" team where they were initially 'cons before switching over to the Autobot side.

    Nice idea..but I still think that Grimlock and his boys shoulda been left the way they were originally made..as DINOBOTS (transformers that turn into dinosaurs)
