    yeah, your new swoop is waaay better, he just fits in with the others better and is the proper size. totally sweet, can't wait to see his alt mode. you should do a group dino mode pick too. any plans to do a snarl?

    Snarl is the worst nightmare... big metal torso, skinny legs....very little room for
    balljoints, but I'll work on it, I just need some time to think about it.

    Yeah, the original head looks like shit. E-towline's head with some patience will be awesome! I glued towline 2 half pieces together, then I drilled inside the screw hole and glued a metal pin that I bent and sculped around it so it's basically indestuctible! You also have to trim the sides of his head so that it fits between the dino head fixture.

    Thanks guys!

    Yes but honestly, I see no point in that since the combined mode sucks so much.
    If I make a Dinobot combiner, the 5 of them will be involved

    I actually LOVE the original head on Energon Swoop... though I'll agree that the Towline head as you've used it looks much more G1. Also the original head looks really broody and serious, and Swoop is actually one of the more affable Dinobots, so I can see why you'd want to change it.

    Despite it's failings, I've always really liked the E Swoop mold. I was lucky enough to find the E. Dinobot 2-pack at discount for $12 (!), because I'm a cheapskate, but I loved the Swoop... I feared it would never be mine (stupid rarities!). It's awesome that you were able to improve on this mold's faults and bring out it's strengths!

    Amazing work on this! It looks great! I guess the only sore point is that you have to remove the hands in transformation... but that's pretty much the only problem with it. I just love it.
