    You read that right, MINI DINOBOTS! WHAAAAA?

    I've been working on this one for quite a while as i was making my other dinos and every time i previewed these guys in my other threads I always gotten comments about these. So without further delay...

    MINI SWOOP! Mini swoop is a repaint of ptero painted in swoop colors. I did a few mods.
    20180911_214245.jpg First i added the doopity doo on his head and cut feet out of the "seat". 20180911_214248.jpg Since Swoop came with a sword i thought he would be good to have a shield so mini swoop turns into a shield.
    20180911_214108.jpg 20180911_214112.jpg 20180911_214325.jpg

    MINI SLAG! Mini Slag is made from a shuffler. I took the tail and molded a head onto it. the, uhhh, mane? pointy thing going around his head is hand cut from styrene and the horns are cut from a plastic fork.
    20180911_214655.jpg 20180911_214700.jpg 20180911_214709.jpg
    Mini Slag turns into a flame thrower. i thought this was fitting for Slag.

    Mini Grimlock is a straight up repaint of overboard.
    20180911_215555.jpg 20180911_215601.jpg And the weapon mode is the default blaster. 20180911_215127.jpg 20180911_215218.jpg
    Mini Snarl was fun to make. Since i turned another snarl into dinobot trample i had extra scales that i cut off of trample. These worked perfect for mini snarl. Mini Snarl is again shuffler. The tail is his head while the head was turned into the tail.
    20180911_215755.jpg I used toothpics to do the pointy ends on the tail. Note that i was going for cartoon accuracy and his tail is all gold unlike the toy.
    20180911_215802.jpg 20180911_215813.jpg
    Mini Snarl turns into a spiked club.
    20180911_220010.jpg U get beat with this guy and ur gonna be hurting in the morning. BAM BAM!
    20180911_220020.jpg
    Mini Sludge! Mini Sludge is also made from shuffler. i flipped the head upside down and spun around the trunk and added a head and boom.
    20180911_220517.jpg 20180911_220521.jpg 20180911_220526.jpg Weapon mode is pretty default shuffler. I liked the idea of him having a grenade launcher. 20180911_220233.jpg 20180911_220238.jpg 20180911_220243.jpg

    And a group shot of the minis with their bigger counterparts. 20180911_221104.jpg
    20180911_221111.jpg

    I dont know why hasbro didnt do a full line up of mini dinos when they were doing titan masters. It wasnt much to get these guys so a huge missed opportunity by them.

    I hope you enjoyed these little guys. I'm really happy with out they turned out. Hopefully they inspire you to make some mini dinos of your own.

    That's ADORABLE!!!

    (Also, the proper term for the "neck thing" around a Triceratops is a Frill.)
