    Swift-trap is one of my favorite customs. He uses many traps to defeat the decepticons: chains, magnets, nets, and many more things.

    I'm not all that familiar with this iteration of the mold. What did you do?

    This is actually a smokesscreen mold. I just added some gold on his body and red on his gun/lance thingy.

    So, it's a Smokescreen figure with some minor gold detail work? Maybe for your next work, you should take Desert Brawl, add some silver paint to his treads, and call him Slow-gun.
    ...
    I honestly cannot fathom why you would rename him after simply improving his established paintjob.

    Wow dude that was totally rude of you. Did you ever stop to think that his fan based character is very close to Smokescreen??

    I like to create my own characters and I didn't want to totally repaint Smokescreen because I like his paintjob how it is.

    I did say he improved the paintjob, didn't I?
    I just didn't like the idea of renaming after such a minor alteration. It's like what kids do with Sonic The Hedgehog fancharacters. I'm not saying I don't approve of the added paint work (in fact, I think it works great), but the matter of it being a new character is off-putting to me.

    Yes so? like i sed...HE bought the toy, HE painted it, Therefore i think its safe to say he owns it and it belongs to him...therefore whatever he wants to call it is fine...I have seen people call sideways sidewinder...jus leave him alone...the figure isnt even official its jus a repaint of jazz
