    I always want to make a combiner from G1 Dinobots.
    After I got a dinobots lot from ebay couple weeks ago, finally I turned them into this guy:

    Man, I'm the first to give props when they're due and remain silent when they're not...but that just doesn't work for me.

    Also, I'm one of those guys in the "Dinobots shouldn't combine" camp. Just always liked that they were the group that didn't, but still kicked ass as a team.

    I don't know I think it has potential. Maybe paint Hun-Grrr to match.
    With some work I think it could be Badass.

    It doesn't look that bad. Although, Grimlock should be the main body since he's the leader and not just an arm. I don't know. It's difficult to do with the Dinobots since they were never meant to combine. However, it's still a pretty good attempt. I'll give you props for that!

    actually i like how grimlock is the arm lol and his rex head is the hand lol reminds me of megatron!

    it actually looks pretty good in my opinion, but it just looks unfinished. lol it's only problem is it needs hands and feet.

    oh and does it disconnect? or is it stuck there forever?

    Universal translation: "Prepare to be offended." :rolleyes2 


    I think it's pretty cool. It has a lot of potential.

    I agree that Hun-Grr could be either replaced, modified or painted to match the Dinobot color scheme.

    A few more modifications to the Superion head just to make it different might be nice.

    The upper legs seem a tad too thin to lift those massive dino lower legs. Some hands might be cool too, although I do like the Grimlock head doubling as a hand. These big guys don't exactly need fingers to do needlepoint or anything like that.

    I think it's very creative and I'd love to see you push this even further. Have fun!

    It's a great custom !
    Hope to see more from you, post as many as you want.
    Originality isn't always well received.
    Don't let others discourage you from doing more like this - the more you do the better you get !

    It really doesn't look bad at all. I like all of timshinn's recommendations. Are they permanently attached or can they still detach and transform? I remember a guy making a Dinoking too. Problem was that it no longer detached to it's individual bots.

    Edit: if you are going to mod the head, perhaps add a battle mask with teeth on the sides like War Within Grimlock? I think that would make the Dinoking more menacing and more Dinobot like.

    Honest opinion?

    You could have been more constructive and said the same thing. Constructive criticism is promoted here and is always better received. Case in point:

    timshinn said essentially the same things, but was more constructive about it.

    Aside from your chosen method of criticism, I agree that Hun-grr is a bit out of place and that the Superion should have some alteration to it.

    But to encourage someone to stop making customs because you don't like their piece? Unacceptable.




    Be more constructive or stop posting. :wink:

    Thanks for all opinions..
    I will paint the hun-Grr to the Dinobots color... got pretty excited when I got them combined, I can't wait to post it. lol.

    First, this is a very simple custom, my only tools are a screwdriver and a multi-function knife. Suprion head looks pretty cool to me, so maybe I will repaint it a little bit but I won't do any thing other than that.

    Second, yes, they are seperatable. and they still can transform to individual robot except poor swoop.. than about the feet and fists, before I can figure out how to place them on postion without any problem, I will leave it just this way for now..
    anyway, grimlock's T rex head looks pretty nice, right? lol.


    About hun-grr, he is a "dragon" too........

    are you talking about the one on the left? I bought it from this forum.

    My guys still can detach and transform. and that's why I can't figure out how to put hands and feet on it without getting them stuck with each other forever.

    and your opinion about the head is really good, I will consider it. Thanks

    First of all Satan Santa, dude, you were way out of line....just flat out rude....telling someone to "stop" or not to post so many pics is uncalled for....if you dont like it that much, then dont even bother to post....

    Secondly, I like what you have done.....I think it looks cool :thumb 
    All I would do is maybe try and paint the Hun-grr parts to match up with the Dinobots' parts......other than that, it looks fine.....I'd leave the head alone....looks like it was suited just for this custom

    I have a golden rule I follow when I "create" something....if I like it, thats all that matters, if others like it, thats a bonus.....do what makes you happy

    G1 bots, especially combiners, were part-formers. Drill a hole at the combiner wrist for hands to peg into. The hands simply vanish when the bots separate.
