    Ok, I've done an eBay search already and a google search doesn't help much either. I found a G1 Swoop and he's missing the clear top half of his beak. The pin to hold it there I have. The bottom red half is cracked but looks fixable with some glue. I've seen a few closed eBay listings for a complete head, but nothing on there currently or even recently. It's been suggested to just get a cheap junker Swoop and use that, but they end up not being cheap due to the head still being intact. Anybody know of any other source to obtain this piece? Thanks in advance!

    Poop, looks like this is harder to find than I thought. Anybody?

    You might have to look around for a reproduction, transrepro.com used to offer one but they are no longer in business. I would ask around the radicons section for someone who make one.

    I'm a total noob and didn't even think about checking my PM. They don't get sent to my email apparently. I got the PM thank you very much!
