    So, I want to pick up a spare pair of movie toys for their superior bio-on-the-back Canadian instructions. Bonecrusher and Swindle.

    After the customization class at Botcon, I kinda wanna have a go at some customizationing too.

    Anyone have any ideas for what I could do with a Bonecrusher and Swindle? All I could think of so far was a Jin Saotome-esque Bonecrusher 'realism' deco and a videogamey recolour for Swindle. Wouldn't mind seeing if anyone else had cool envisionings. :D

    Well, if you wanted to go all G1, you could do Bonecrusher in green and purple Constructicon colors, with a black head. Or paint Swindle purple as a pseudo-Shockwave (or silver as Shackwave).

    You could also go more obscure and do Bonecrusher in the colors of Beast Wars Bonecrusher:

    I think that might actually look kinda nice.... he looks more "monstrous," like movie Bonecrusher. And they are both Buffalos, after all.

    You could also do Swindle in baby blue as a car-version of Whirl. Or paint him up as a Stunticon.

    Anyhow, good luck! :)

    Well, first off, I'm gonna do the obligatory "check out this thread" plug: The kitbasher's resource, at the top of this forum!

    Now, in terms of ideas...Ever since that Swindle showed up, I've thought he'd look awesome as Shockwave. A nice purple shade and some street racer-style decals would do him right.

    ...as for Bonecrusher...I don't think you can go wrong with a weathering and detail job. He'd look great!

    Ideas for Bonecrusher:

    - Bw Bonecrusher
    - G1 Bonecrusher
    - G1 Grimlock (inspired by a very good digibash on the forums)

    Ideas For Swindle:

    - He's based on a Chevy Cobalt right? Make him cobalt coloured?

    Swindle has any number of possibilities. Make him a Cobalt SS (bigger wheels, bigger spoiler, bigger tailpipe) and add Chevrolet graphics. (And fix the rear to match the real thing). Or you could make him into a Pontiac G5 GT (same as the Cobalt SS1) instead, but that would require redoing the front bumper.

    Bonecrusher is tougher. The only thing I can think of is to make him part of a modern-day Combaticon group. (Makes more sense than a space shuttle, that's for sure.)
