    Heres my revamped version of TFA Swoop made to be more G1 accurate. He has be given a metallic paint job and wing missiles. I decided that an aerial combatant would be better suited with a sword than a huge mace so I created him one thus letting Swoop stand in many badarse Ninja poses. (I have a thing for Ninjas)

    Not digging the silver face. The rest looks good. Poses are neat and weapons are cool

    Definitely looks cool; I'm kinda seeing where Lucs is coming from, though. I think it'd better to do the part above his eyes in red like the rest of his helmet - I'm getting the impression of a receding hairline... :p 
    I agree with you about the sword. It suits him much more than the clunky mace. What's it made from?

    I agree with RR, I think that would make a world of difference.
    You could go a little farther and paint his chinstrap as well.

    Very nice, where are the missles from? Look G.I. Joeish to me for some reason. Also agree that the top of the head should have more red.

    Awesome work, although I don't think this has been said yet, but I think the face needs more detailing/color.

    Hmmmmm something tells me you don't like the head. I hear ya but I went for the G1 head from the animated series. I did try head there at first and opted to not stay with it for 1 reasons The red would completely cover his brow defeating the look that I was going for:

    Fair play. I just find that when you're trying to conform one model's colour layout to fit another model, it's sometimes best to make compromises to improve the aesthetics. If you're trying to stay pretty rigidly with the 'toon scheme, that's cool.

    Not bad. The silver is a little bright, imo, but it's pretty good. The sword and missles look pretty good on him. Keep up the good work :thumb
