    So I got three of these jet customs from the Classics Mirage mold (Thanks Darkcave!). Sold two of em, and decided to make the third more my own. He's now Divebomb, aka: Cybertron Swoop. If you havn't read the story "What's in a name?" I really reccomend getting ahold of some UK comic reprints.

    Nice! I always liked that story, just because it addressed for the first time some of the issues of code-names and how some characters have previous histories on Cybertron.

    This looks sweet... it says "Swoop" to me (or is that Divebomb?), and the vehicle mode has a strong "War Within" flavour to it. Neat.

    let's see...strike Freedom's 2 guns, Double X's sword, what's the cannon on his wings form?

    I like how you altered the legs, though i don't get why he's got feet stuck to his wings?

    Looks very war within, nice job.

    I read about Swoop being called Divebomb from tfwiki.net and to me thats cool. And the custom is also very awesome.

    Very cool, I was curious to why he was almost called divebomb in the war within comics. It was a hint to the uk comics, great custom, it looks great. And nice use of other parts too!

    Yeah no kidding I thought Grimlock was used to talking to the Predacon more then swoop like he slipped cause he used to be more decepticon or whatevers.

    On topic I love this mod. Cybertron Swoop never looked so good.

    That is utterly, utterly awesome. I remember reading the comic back in the day, and I'm really excited to see props to it :D  Damn good job that man!

    wow, that actually works, REALLY well! autobotx23 does good work, don't he? hehehe Nice paint job. If it were mine, the only thing I'd change is I'd either change the head to have a fin behind it, or paint that section of cab behind his back red. . . .

    I am brainstorming on how I might do a fin on his head.

    Just remember guys, I didn't do the modding. I just painted him and added the Gundam X sword. He was almost all black when I got him from Darkcave.

    I made my own after seeing cloud saber, and as anyone with Mirage knows, there's little to no room at all behind his head in plane/car mode.

    So, just paint the bit behind his head.
