    lol, they're really handy, almost as handy as unicrons lol

    yes, they're sideswipe's thighs. it's one of the easiest mods you'll ever do. u unscrew SS's bottom legs and unscrew slag's bottom legs, and pop slag's into SS's thighs, screw them on, and there you go. although you have to trim a tad bit from the slag leg, but just a tiny bit.

    very awesome mod JAF!

    LOL! Yeah, when I got Slag, the legs were already swapped to SS's. Same with Sludge's legs. Mike gets that credit. Both of those were based on Ptitvite's articulated ones.

    But man this came out great. Super fast too man, well done. I also though a similar thing as Mike, "did he color on of the WIP shots I posted?" but alas, you are just a bashing machine.

    Now do the rest...

    Great job. I can't believe that we only got 1 Dinobot in the Classics/Universe line. Although the animated ones are nice, they just don't fit in w/ the Classics style...this one totally does.

    Wonderful!!!

    lol, oh ok, well brilliant idea mike! yea i agree, the others look a lot more tricky

    thanks

    oh ok, thanks man, he was tons of fun. and lol, i'm not that good at photoshop yet, lol.

    Cool! I've had a G2 Slag that I've been tempted to try something like this with... great job! The paint work really takes it to the next level.

    The only thing I might add is a peg and socket on his back and top of his tail. It always bugged me the way it would just hang behind him... better if it could fold up onto his back.

    I have it on my massive list to do this for my Classics Dinobots too. I felt that adding articulation, and replacing their thighs would pretty much be all that was needed beyond painting on their sticker details to get them to fit the aesthetic... they're so detailed already that the skinny legs and brickishness was really the only things keeping them from looking modern.
