    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 Swoop! (my favorite Dinobot) (this is gallery 5 of 5)

    I didn't knotice, but you weren't able to swoop an articulated head, huh? Oh well, other than that great job! I loved swoop in the toon, and all I ever got for his toy was a broke ass p.o.s. With neither heads.. Though, I must admit, I would have gone with the blue chest just to make it accurate to the toon. But I'm an accuracy nut too, so :thumb :

    F-R, these are simple amazing but I'm going to have to agree with OMEGAPRIME1983. Maybe it's just me but I really like the blue on Swoop. It adds so much variety to the colors of the dinobots when you have them all grouped together. Still though, WOW!

    The red on him looks great, but I agree about the blue.

    well u did an awsome job on all of them
    but swoop swooped me away,i actually like the lack of blue and the detailing on him r the most impressive ,keep on the great job u already do :) 

    p.s
    i would like to add that the lack of chrome and gold is abit disapointing ,the removal of the clear part of sludge is a mistake in my opinion,cause as a kid those details blow me away .
    if i see corrrectly the hip parts on most of them r from the classic line ?prowl and sunstreaker?

    A TF fan. He's not a member here, but comes to visit sometimes.

    Yeah, he's got a great robot mode too. That fin on his head is awesome, and something I will adapt into Dinoking's head.

    thanks bro

    No blue.

    Yeah, I have that whole reference library perma-tabbed on my hard drive thanks to an awesome client of mine. I constantly am using almost solely those images as reference.

    Seriously? Are you april fooling me?

    The head was almost impossible to articulate. there's a lot of stuff going on with his neck/alt mode head, etc to eff with that. Again, no blue!!!

    I debated making his chest blue, but it would look so out of place with the other guys. I have no idea why his chest was blue on the cartoon.

    Thanks guys.

    Not sure on some of the extra parts. Ill try to have JAF explain a little about his process and where he got his parts.

    Thanks again guys!
