    Number three in the series is SNARL! I've always loved the characters look in the classic g1 series, especially his head and body, but really thought the tail was pure genius the way it split and came up behind him on both sides in robot mode. So I wanted to convey that same look with the body, unfortunately, a tank turret that splits and goes on each side of his back doesn't look quite as good as his old tail (just trust me on this one folks -I tried). So without further ado, here ya go - WWII era Snarl "down & Dirty" ver.!

    The figure looks awesome, but the head looks out of place. The rest of the figure is grimy and battle worn, and the head is pristine and new. Love the series though.

    Dang, I forgot I took these pics before I Dullcoted him, which changes the shiny head thing drastically. I'll get a few more shots with the Dullcote on him.

    Thanks everyone, glad you like him!

    I love the robot mode but does it properly transform? I don't see alt. mode pictures, which DOESN'T down-grade this cool figure!

    Awesome, man. Been waiting to see these ever since you posted about them in my custom Slag thread.

    Inferno's head suits the Hulk body so well and is definitely a great fit for a Dinobot. Good work, man, especially dig how you incorporated the gold into his back. Can't wait to see the rest.

    Thanks bud! Yeah, I wanted a fresh take with a distinctive look that would fit the Dinos, and I think it's turning out great. Glad you agree!
    Ha! thanks man! Of course he still transforms perfectly. The only mods done to the core body was the head and the chest plate. The head is actually the same size as the Hulk head, so there's no clearance issue with that tucking in the huge cavity in his body. (even better, the head is on a balljoint!) As for the chest, if you were to flip the Hulk tank over to expose the bottom then you would see that in his tank form there's about a inch gap where his chest folds up at, which is perfect for the new addition chest piece!
    Thanks a ton man! Your support fuels my passion! BFG's are comin'!
    And a big thank you to you kind sir! Loved your renditions as well!

    Hopefully can get some alt. mode shots later today. Just hate transforming them after I paint them, it's a bitch for me. Put a coat of Future Finish on the joints and rub spots last night, so I was wanting that to fully dry. Thanks for the comments, and very glad these guys are being well-recieved! Cheers and Happy New Year!

    Looks much better and it was already smokin'.

    Just one minor critique, moreso of your Swoop. Maybe a red head would suit? Just to bring in some more G1 flavour? Of course it really depends on which G1 you follow. The other thing is that Swoop looks too clean compared to his Dinobot brothers now. Might be good to weather him for consistency?

    All in all, these are bloody fabulous.
