    So here's my entry from last weeks TFcon 3D art contest:
    [​IMG]
    I don't have any real fiction for him other than that he's Dinobot reborn. After the end of Beast Wars, Dinobot was rebuilt by the Nemesis's computer ala G1 MTMTE Part 1.
    [​IMG]
    He's a repaint of GoJyuJin, the Silver Ranger's mecha/Zord from Gokaiger.
    [​IMG]
    One of the really cool things about this figure, and what inspired the repaint, is that his weapon transforms from drill sword to laser cannon to spinning shield. Similar to the original Dinobot's toy's weapon.
    [​IMG]
    The beast mode is pretty slick too. I really like how his beast head turned out.
    [​IMG]

    And another cool thing about this figure is that he's a triplechanger. Transforming to a sort of space-time drill tank jet thing.

    This figure is actually a candy toy model kit, but he's got amazing articulation!

    I like it. Very creative idea and I like the colors you used. My only nitpicks would be that the legs/feet are a bit huge and I wish the hand in his dino mouth could be somehow concealed better.
    Drill tank thing mode is pretty cool too!

    That's really nice! The paint came out good.

    I've actually been trying to get my hands on this figure for quite some time now, any advice on where I might be able to grab it?

    This is BRILLIANT! I could totally see this as some kind of alternate universe Transmetal 1 Dinobot- it works so well on so many different levels.

    BRAVO!

    It's the candy toy version of GoJyuJin/GoZyuZin, the Silver Rangers mecha/Zord from GoKaiger, a Super Sentai/Japanese Power Rangers.
    I got mine from CS Toys, but they don't seem to have them anymore. I've actually been considering getting a couple more as well. I think this mold could work as a BW Megatron and a BW2 Galvatron homage as well.

    Gotcha, thanks for the tip tho, that store looks interesting!

    If he used the DX version it would have had to be made into BW Megatron, right? lol

    I could just see Dinobot biting down hard on Waspinator's head and start puching him in the face with that fist his mouth!
