    Got this done, finally after a long time from taking break.

    This is a commissioned piece so there are certain requirements/criteria for the project.

    Main color for this is done in flat silver as it project a more primal look which was requested.

    The gold on the chest for the classic version is extended to the neck piece and sholders joint to give it more similar look to the original figure.
    Autobot insignia was removed also, and replace with 4 small screws on the area to depict a metal plate on the dino.
    Various "gold ring" were added on both Alt and Bot mode along with some rivets.
    Didn't want to have to much accent colors to take away attention, hence less painted details

    The leg (alt mode) or shoulder (bot mode) were swap to suit their respected mode. Originally, screw holes is on the shoulder of the bot mode and were not very pleasant to the eyes. Gold rings were added to the holes for a more mechanical look on the dino mode.

    Small soldier is to replace the yellow rider that came together with the original toy. It's not a custom made figure, just something from my collection that I thought would add to the overall "feel" of this project.

    Nice, always been a fan of the Diaclone Pre TFs.
    Shame they never released the rest of the Dino's in the classics range.
