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 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.
