    hey everyone, just posting another WIP of mine, this time it's DOTM Dino! After about 2 days of thinking and work, i got a few things actually done, but i have some awesome ideas for what i'm going to do next on him :D 

    So far i have added:
    The Wrist Blades (from DOTM: Crankcase)
    Door Wings
    Changed Shoulder Pieces (to match the Concept Art)
    Rearranged his (previous lower leg kibble, to become) Thigh Panels
    Seperated Fingers

    He will be able to transform, but his vehicle mode will be a Hybrid Ferrari 458 Italia/Audi R8.

    Here are some pics :D 
    Comments and Criticism are welcome!
    Thanks!

    Only two things, good and bad can come from this thread.

    If we're lucky, Lazerwave will stop making the where's my blah blah blah threads.

    If we're unlucky, Lazerwave will use this as an example to make another where's my blah blah blah thread.

    Anyway, can't wait to see how this'll look finished

    It is good work, if people waited on customs,for every figure Hasbro should or will make this community would be dead, yah dont get better by waiting. And Dino may not happen, Mattels got the rights to Ferrari

    freakin awesome. Will he get reshelled as well, or is he staying the not-audi of the base figure?

    good idea. i think u ll make the leg stronger later.
    i concern the face of dino (i prefer to call him this way)more, coz that ll be the most important part to make it 'dino' or not.

    Thanks! Glad you guys like it..updates will be posted as soon possible!

    I'm not quite sure what you mean but i'll take it as a compliment ;) 

    what UltraMagnus2008 said, and even if a Dino/Mirage does come it doesn't matter...i did this for fun, and because i had a Deadend and some Crankcase claws that i didn't know what to do with. so it doesn't matter to me :) 

    Thanks man! ummm well i have never reshelled anything before...but i was planning on changing as much as i could to make it look different then my ROTF Sideways..but if i found a Ferrari model of the right size i would definitely give it a shot!

    Ohh yah definitely..I hate those legs, and they cause him to be real back heavy. Also the face is going to be a big thing, im thinking of using a ROTF Jolt head with the middle crest trimmed off and then use some sculpting epoxy to give him the right "helmet"...that's just the beginning of it though hahahaha

    Maybe some salvaged parts could be made into a replica of the Ferrari front, like some Sideswipe parts ya don't care about.
