    Last steps of this project, I have had to make the heads.
    The smaller heads we kind of easy using Snarls orginal head scuplt but Dinotitan is a little diffrent. Its 100 percent hand Built. I'm trying to make it look like animated Grimlock, just bigger, and meaner.


    Anyway here is what I got so far, I'm looking for some input on it. I'm not sure if it works as a Dinotitian.

    It looks pretty good on him. What'd you use? Aves?

    That looks perfect! Love everything about it, especially the "tricera-horns" up top. It fits in really well with animated!

    Yes I use Aves Fix It,

    I think Im gonna make the Jaw bigger and make it square instead of rounded.
    Also add Big ass bolts on the side of the Jaw. I have a Idea for some side guns but I don't know if it will fit the animated look I 'm shooting for.

    thxs guys.

    I have another head I'm working on as well for Dinotitan but its a more serious looking one. I like the light hearted-ness of the animated so I don't knwo if Ill use it.

    i'm not familiar with what the head is "suppose" to look like, but what you sculpted looks pretty damn good to me, i like it

    He looks like a bear trap with a visor with three horns. Impressive you don't want to mess with that dude. No sir.

    My only critique is that with such a giant head, it makes the body look small, and less imposing (which actually is kind of a big deal seeing as it is a combiner).

    I do See your point, I had a smaller version of the head but I wanted the Jaw to really stick out like most of the Bots in Animated. I thought the bigger Jaw just fit better with the other animated figs.

    Thanks for the critique!

    I like the jaw design, I'd just have made the whole thing a bit smaller is all. :)
