    Special mentions to Sculptbot for his incredible MP Swoop kit. Very nice. So, this started out as Universe Silverbolt as we all know. I went with the paint job that is close to the toon with the blue body instead of the toy red.

    Sorry guys. I have been away for a very long time. This custom took me a fair while to put together. I thoroughly enjoyed it though. Tricky but challenging at the same time.

    Articulated hands, wings, head, alt mode heads mouth, neck, bird's feet.

    Hope you guys like it.

    Thanks guys for the comments. I am humbled.

    Did anyone notice the extra changes I did on the shin and arm extension... The gun is also added and true to the toy, I made it red :)

    Oh, man, truly awesome work!

    And suddenly, I realize who you are in ebay, by seeing the MP blizer wing standing besides the swoop!!!!!

    That piece is also a member of hall of fame!!!!

    Looks great! The only thing I'm not keen on is three fact that his beast feet end up on top in alt mode, but it's a minor grunge to me, :)

    Yeah, that is one of the area that didnt quite sit with me. But, it was either to look at bulking up the upper leg with an extension piece like the G1 toy where I can push it up or down. This way, it just meant that the bird will be flying with foot up.

    I just realised the foot when I took the pic in beast mode is turned the wrong way around... Oops.

    The only thing that I would change on this G1 masterpiece is the dino feet. Id put little magnets in each and the re-attach on the underside for transformation...

    Other than that, I totally love those wing on this mold.

    Really sharp work........

    I got this a little while ago from Shawn. I doubt he would mind if you guys asked him for a set.

    Back on this piece, I shall make mods on the claws. I know what I can do. Will update again.

    Working on the thunderwing.

    Thanks for the feedback.
