    So I was watching that episode of Beast Machines where Jetstorm gets turned into Silverbolt, and something about Silverbolt's new look struck me as familiar.

    Then I realised: Swoop shares his general look.

    They both have similiar head-shapes and body-shapes, but fortunately Swoop doesn't have giant googly eyes and insane colours.

    Actually, i thought that the BM silverbolt design would work well in animated.
    He had the face for animated already.
    He could in as partner to BA.

    Were're not talking about Fuzor Silverbolt, we're talking about BM Silverbolt. Someone did an amazing kitbash of Swoop into Silverbolt's colours and it looked awesome. Swoop has the long jaw, the crest looks like Silverbolt's head design (which makes him look like he has a little tied thing of hair) amnd the general porportions reflect SB.

    I'm pretty sure the resemblance is just coincidence, considering we can clearly see the designer was going for a BADASS CAPED QUIET DINO.

    I was expecting you to point out his similarities with Beast machines Skydive.

    Animated Swoop, to me, looks like his IDW self.

    I do definently see the resemblance between BM Silverbolt & Animated Swoop.

    Split Lip, do you have a link to the bash you were talking about. Sounds awesome, but I think I missed it.

    Well, yeah, there are similiarities-but he looks more like Silverbolt to me.
