    Hi everyone,
    I have been wanting a G1 cartoon color Swoop for some time. Instead of buying one of those expensive knock offs, I decided to use an Energon Swoop and paint him to match a G1 cartoon Swoop. I took a few liberties, but I feel like I ended up with a solid 'bot. The alt mode isn't too amazing, but I feel like it works for now.
    I sanded down the bits of plastic in front of the legs so he can bend and I added a little bit of clay to keep his arms in place at the shoulders, which never seemed to stay in place otherwise. I also glued his body halves together (it would open for some combiner gimmick, and never stayed shut).
    Anyway, please leave some feedback. Thanks!

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if I could really add much detail. I may go back and try some time.

    Thank you!
