    College kills customizing. Plain and simple.

    Home for Thanksgiving, I finally had time to make this guy, Swoop.

    I'm taking him and the Grimlock I made months ago and lumping them into the new group "Alternate Reality" A simple What-If where the Dinobot's alt-modes were vehicles rather than robots.

    In other words, im too lazy to come up with a back story.

    Swoop was made from a Bandai D.I.C.E. Hoverptera figure, and believe you me, this thing was hard to find.

    Color scheme is based a little on both the G1 figure and G1 cartoon version.

    Oh yeah, I think it's supposed to turn into a hover bike. Im not entirely sure what it is, but it looks cool...

    I like this a lot! I remember when you did the Grimlock I thought "wow, that's really thinking outside of the box" and making another dinobot just adds to the story. They both look great. Ideas on any of the other dinobots?

    Good to see you are getting some stuff done, but it can be a pain to find the time! Wasn't super digging these guys when I first saw them. A second look over and yeah, they are awesome. They look great together. Painting is done well, they have a very metallic while still cartoonish look, Id pick them up in a heartbeat. Im not familiar with the line but I hope you can make a full set.

    Ps I still want to see your . . . other one.

    Thanks for liking it, I'm pleased with the way he turned out. As for the other Dinobots, they're a possibility. The base figures are really tough to come by, as I only stumbled on the two I have by sheer luck.

    I know for a fact however that they did make a triceratops/tank and a stegosaurus/something. I'm keeping a lookout for them.

    Glad I could change your mind. :thumbs2: 

    yeah, yeah. I'm getting there. Seeing your Frenzy/Rumble and Rumble/Frenzy duo really made me step it up a notch and work on this guy. There's just a few minor details that need painted on and then he'll be set. He should be up in the next few days.

    Keep on the look out!
