    Squee, a bit of a physical digi-bash, if you will. Just a basic idea for turning Voyager Bulkhead into Animated Sludge. Paper, tape, and a few quick shots taken in the middle of the night. XP

    He's not entirely G1 accurate - and he's currently designed with tail-wings, which three of my dinobots are going to be stuck with, but all in all, I think it does the job. ^^

    Cool idea. Can't wait to see the final product. I've got ideas for an Animated Striker (G1 Snarl), and an Animated Sledge (an Ankylosaurus) using the Snarl mold we've got. I probably won't do them, as Hasbro sounds like they'll be doing more Animated Dinobots at some point. At the least they've expressed interest in doing so. Good luck with this.

    That's a very clever way of using the paper to plan it out.

    That may actually work. I've been going through designs in my head for an animated Sludge. I was planning on scratchbuilding it though. Transformation would be different than what you have there. It'll be similiar to G1, but not quite. Not sure if I'll ever get around to making it though.

    Nice! Hopefully the head hanging down the back there doesn't result in Sludge being back-heavy. Which would suck.

    Ooh! Ooh! Are you gonna give him a flame weapon?

    Oy, such excitement for this piece - makes me feel bad that I'm putting him on the back burner. ^^; I just wanted to get the idea out in case anyone else was interested.

    Need to get Sound-n-Shock-wave finished for some extra bashing funds. Then Wheeljack and Snarl for my own personal collection. After those, expect some new news on Sludge.

    As far as weapons go, I do intend to keep the flaming weapon idea going. For Sludge, I'm trying to decide between something like a flaming halberd (I can store the long handle in his throat), or the flaming battle axe more suited to his bulk.

    I'd say I was excited, but I'd rather see you finish any of your numerous WIPs you have, as they all have immense potential, yet we've yet to see one finished :(

    As far as weapons go, I'd say a flaming axe would be about as awesome as possible, haha.

    It could work. That is a cool way to try to figure things out.

    hmmm what if you use the BW magnaboss ironhide figure for the TFA sludge. Like you could use the elephant legs for the legs of the dino mode since I think they are close to how the dinosaur legs were. Its just a thought as I was thinking about taking a crack at kitbashing my own TFA sludge using parts from the bulkhead and the bw ironhide
