    Hi again, The Dinobots were always part of my preferred characters. I had loved that they combine to fight Devastator. In this years i saw diferent customs of a Dinobot combiner, but nothing so awesome like EXTINCTION from frenzyrumble, I love it.

    Dinobots : Merge to form Extinction

    Since then, I was searching to see how could I do something similar within my means and possibilities (obvious to make Frenzyrumble´s job is making available to very few), I finally decided to build on a basis Cybertron Metroplex most obviously the five Dinobots. What's Not had to convince me is that Metroplex arms was very small and had no lateral joint in the foot, Finally I used the Transformers crossover Hulk for Hecatombe arms and foots. The head is a bit small, but as the shape and colors are not bad, for the moment is ok, perhaps in the future i´ll find another.

    With all the figure build i had this:

    I didn´t rebuild the Dinobots like Frenzyrumble, I,m not so good for this. My custom has the fortress mode from Metroplex. And after paint it, this is that we have:

    Optimus Prime is under Devastator attack, and the Dinobots come to help.

    After the Dinobots defeat, Optimus calls the Dinofortress to help.

    Well, at the end I’m very happy with the final figure, what do you think?. (Excuse my English; I’m very bad in this too).

    This is pretty nice. Great idea and execution given that you say you don't have a whole lot of customizing skills. :thumb

    Hi, thank´s. It isn´t perfect like your Exctinction, but i´m happy with it.

    P.D. I was the one that asked you for a Skyfire Masterpiece like the Figueroa design, i sended you a prototype design, do you remember? I continue having it in mind, but the money is a problem right now. Who knows, maybe in the future.

    pretty dope! i like the picture sequence with dev. fortress mode is almost begging for you to do something dino-head related with the crane. fortmode already has an animal feel to it and the chompy thing is already half a set of jaws!

    wow, impressive work! nice usage of the colors, and great arrangement of the new parts and the original dinobot parts, specially on the torso (^.')b

    did you know?
    the word "hecatomb" comes from ancient greek:
    hekton = one hundred
    bous = ox
    It was a ritual sacrifice in which one hundred oxen were slaughtered. Today this word has come to mean "the death of many"

    I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but that's not a combiner. It's just the Dinobots latched onto Cybertron Metroplex. It has nothing to do with your skills, I don't like Frenzy Rumble's either. I'm just getting tired of people making this type of combiner.

    (NOT BEING A DICK OR TROLLING EITHER!!!!!)i kinda have to agree with gryph about the build and "slap a bot on top "combiner" aspect of this certain build,but the paint is where it shines.(along with the giant dinobot base with the massive jaws!!!:D )
    imho it's not really a combiner if the bot doesn't need the limb-bots to stand up,but working with what you had,it turned out really top notch!!!!

    have you thought of any ways to try to make it your own that much more?
    i see you have the same main bots as f/r(cyb.metro and the g1 dino's),
    but what if you found a way to "integrate" the dino's to be more needed as limbs?or maybe make them have 5 swords that combine into one ginormous decepticon slicer?

    i like the paint scheme you chose in the end,good old fashioned shiny g1 combos:cool:

    Well, with my skills and materials available, I made ​​the best version I could. Would be great if someone manages to combine them directly without a base, but I did not get that far.

    Don't fret buddy, I'm waiting for it also. been waiting for years too, so don't hold your breathe :) 
    If characters are needed to create the full-form of the combined mode, then it's a combiner. If latched on, or fully essential to the combined mode, both combiners in my book.
