It was a happy meal toy from some animated movie in the late 90's (the movie was called toy soldiers, or something like that) I painted it about 10 years ago.
It is the same head that is on my swoop dealer.

I just took pictures of all my customs from 8-10 years ago

that is a SUPERB use of parts

Start not actin'right/ You're frozen in carbonite"

Some of the parts I have no idea where they originated from. The engine part in front of the chair and the engine part on the back I don’t know where they are from. I can take some close up pictures for other to try and identify. The chair is from the battlefield earth line. The part under the chair is a parallel to serial converter similar to this one.
Image
The main post coming out of the engine is a gun from the Walmart Octuparra Droid and the vanes are a weapon that came with a Robin from a Bat-man line.
Image
And the decoration part on the engine is from green goblin’s accessory the MU line

Hi I-am-Boba-Fett, welcome to the forums! That's a pretty cool Aeroswoop and rider you've got there, I like what you've done with that STAP, very creative! What parts did you use for the figure?

hello guys, how about this, just an idea....

lets try to take a picture of everyones custom with a green screen in the back of it, then someone with good photo shop skills takes them and arrange them in a group picture, out of a bar or in a mech shop, or a bike show...as I said it is just an idea, I know that it is so hard to acomplish a similar perspective of all the figures so they look good on a picture but it would be aweasome to see them all together.

The recipe for her is at an earlier post.
