    The 3rd party dinobot I got was mech fan toys Swoop as for me and my brother growing up Swoop was never available in the UK I did pick up a battered broken g1 much later but this was a perfect representation for a reasonable price.
    Then I saw the KBB Grimlock and I thought dam he looks nice I knew he was bigger than Swoop but I was alright with that him being a T-rex and the leader after all.
    I was looking to get mech fan toys Sludge next but ended up getting mft Slag instead as he was a good price plus his red animation head with matching paint work to go with the rest of my team which was shaping up nicely.
    Problem was mft Sludge went out of stock everywhere at this point (Silver/gold colours) so hoping it would eventually come back I went ahead and ordered mft Snarl.
    Then I got fed up waiting mft Sludge a toyworld Sludge came up for half its retail price on Ebay it seemed to good to be true but it wasn't a scam for a change and I was very made up with him 20190218_230602.jpg 20190218_230554.jpg 20190218_225321-1.jpg I had no issues with the size as I'd just got into idw atbthe time and Sludge was massive compared to the rest plus Brontosaurus are meant to be huge too.
    The only thing that bugged me was the dark grey unpainted plastic areas I felt make him stick out from the rest so been slowly building up lairs of tamiya acrylic chrome and trying to get to all the hard to reach areas. Next post are the results.

    Looks good, man. I'm a huge fan of the MFT Dino's and I know quite a few folks that are frustrated with the lack of Sludges to be had. This is definitely a good substitute.

    And his head I couldn't place it for a while what was missing his silver mohawk strip, also touched in the colours on his back toyworld had been a bit sloppy.
    Also Slash joined the gang much later I was debating getting but glad I did do she also got the same treatment. Here are my dinobots altogether 20200409_223331.jpg 20200415_185355.jpg 20200415_185228.jpg 20200409_224858.jpg 20200415_235804.jpg 20200409_223517.jpg 20200415_235735.jpg 20200409_223441.jpg 20200415_235710.jpg 20200409_223403.jpg 20200415_185412.jpg 20200409_223217.jpg 20200415_185116.jpg 20200416_000004.jpg 20200415_184436.jpg 20200415_235937.jpg 20200409_224953.jpg 20200409_224933.jpg 20200415_235848.jpg 20200409_223310.jpg 20200409_223245.jpg 20200415_185154.jpg 20200416_000028.jpg 20200415_235920.jpg

    Thanks man I honestly thought it was a scam as Ebay had many times before but glad it paid off, didn't fancy the animation colours mft when they are released it just to have to repaint it all.

    Also apologises on the pink glare on their chrome I didn't even realise at the time when I took them they must of caught it off my girls playhouse lol. ME GRIMLOCK NOT PINK!!! ME GRIMLOCK KING!!!
