    Had a few months off after Pirannacon was finished, this is my first project back.

    I was a big fan of the articulated G1 dinobots, but they were just too small for the rest of the classics.

    All their guns will attach in dino mod, but not their swords.

    Sludge is in the works, then Swoop, Snarl and finally Grimlock, so the group won't be finished any time soon, but its mostly planned out.

    The big question is, swoops chest red or blue???

    Not bad at all. What did you use to make him?

    The only thing I'd say that jumps is the head clearance, I think it's too high off the shoulders.

    thats reallly cool. The only thing that really stands out to me is the armor plates in dino mode look like they could have another layer for some added detailing but all in all very impressive. Also glad to see youre doing all five and not using the classics grimlock


    oh and Ive always thought the blue chest looked better jmo

    thanks for the feed back

    he is mostly universe overload with styrene and g1 slag dino head.

    I see what you man about the long skinny neck, easy fix for before the final group shots. do you mean an extra layer of styrene or paint?

    I remember your pics Ezilla, they were cool, especially the custom characters

    the problem with swoops chest is that I'm going for a mix between toy and cartoon not strictly 1 or the other, I grew up with the blue chest off the cartoon, but the red toy just looks so good.

    Good job on Slag. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the Dinobots made, Classics-style.

    As for Swoop's chest, go with the blue.

    Excellent work, chlokai! I'm always a fan of your work and of any work that involves creating a character from odd mold choices. You did just that and really rocked this piece, man. I honestly may need to hit you up on how you did it and do one for myself! Any plans to do the rest of the Dinobots? If so, consider me tuned in. lol
