Swoop (Movie Style) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:45360  
Name:Swoop (Movie Style)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Transformers

Date Added:December 18, 2012
Base Figure:Air Raid
Height:5.00 inches
Picked up a movie Air Raid and finally got around to painting him into a Swoop.

It was a simple repaint done into his Classic colors. Tons and tons of details went into this guy to make all the detailing pop on this guy.

I drilled a hole into the dish that a plug can be inserted into to hold it into the gun position.

I have been PMed and asked many of times what paint colors I use on my figures. Some people think that its maybe 4 or 5 colors but in fact tons of colors goes into one of these pieces. I present to you the complete list of colors used on Swoop.

Krylon: Camo Ultra Flat Black
Testors: Gloss Black, Flat Black, Insignia Red
Vallejo: Transparent Yellow, Transparent Blue, Matte Finish
Citadel: Mechanicus Grey, Codex Grey, Mordian Blue, Necron Abyss, Altdorf Guard Blue, Averland Sunset, Dwarf Bronze, Mechrite Red, Mephiston Red, Blood Red, Chainmail Silver, Runefang Steel.

Thanks for looking,
Shinobi

Huh, that works really well. I disliked the skinny overly-teched aesthetic of most movie figures, but for this character, it works really well. Nice.

Ditto. I'm in awe of your transformer pieces and to see the amount of paint work that goes into them . . . staggering.
