    This is my first (of many) collaborations with another artist. I was lucky enough to have JAF (of sector70) add incredible articulation to *good* condition Dinobots I picked up across the boards and on ebay.

    You'll find larger and more images of these guys, including group shots later this week on my website (click my banner)

    The golden color was a challenge to hit, but I am happy with the overall palette. I created duplicate sets of the stickers on illustrator and created water slide decals, which you can see throughout the custom(s)

    Thanks to JAF and the fan who commissioned the project. Definitely gonna revisit this project one day and take it to the ultimate level be having them combine

    Anyway, Here's Slag! (this is gallery 2 of 5)

    Nice. I think I like this one better than Grimmy though.

    Holy shit! For a second I thought you modified a MP Grimlock and made MP Dinobots! These are awesome anyway. Jeez!

    Love the use of the universe twins thighs on this, how did you solve the problem of their getting to properly close for the transfomation though? I thought someone else was doing this and I read that you and jaf had a similar dilema. So I'm curious as to how you got it to work, as I have a slag and wouldn't mind trying this out on him.

    WOW! The colors work great (especially as a group) and the articulation is incredible!

    Why no red head though?

    Good grief. I hate you very, very much...

    These are quite wonderful. It's just like seeing my old G1 Marvel comics brought to life *SNIFF*

    Thanks. I hope I see some of you guys doing this!

    Haha, well - thanks!

    I took the liberty of adding the lower articulation (legs/tail/etc) I had to cut up the back of the diecast chest and rebuild the part which hold the tail. I also shortened the waist a little to help the gap problem.

    Thanks. You're talking about the robot mode? I think that was a canada only repro, and had no black plastic from what I remember, his legs were white.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, I have a few other in store, one's almost finished from what I just heard on MSN ;)
