    This will be a Work In Progress thread


    OK, so wanted a MP Slag really bad after seeing F_R 's last year. I'm working on a MP Grimlock custom painted, getting one of Sculpt-bot's custom MP Snarl's, getting a custom MP Swoop by Encline, and possibly a MP Sludge by Dawgstar - so I need this guy to complete my MP Dinobots. He'll be non-transforming like F_R's, but I plan on displaying these guys in robot mode anyways, so no big deal there. Would just have F_R do it, but his waitlist is very long and I want to get these guys together by the end of the year hopefully. Just started getting to work on this guy today. Got most of the parts, but the real reason for this thread is that I need YOUR help guys. Anyone got a couple of Unicron big chest gun blasters, or just the barrel part? I need them for the shoulder outlets and to complete the build. So far I've attached the thighs to the lower legs and attached the waist partially. I've made it so I can mod the waist if I want to (to add the extra 1/2" or so that F_R did, but not sure I really need to at this point). Also modded the chest for the autobot symbol to attach to the new chestplate (or what would be Slag's lower jaw in Dino mode). So Help me get those barrel pieces guys! Thanks!

    Thanks Dan! So that covers the Uni. Cannons, but now I need a Cybertron Megs Head for the lower portion of Slags head, anybody got a extra laying around, or willing to sell a junker?

    Switching the hands to casted MP Prime hands as we speak......

    Mate What is up with the negativity lately.
    MP masterpiece can be anything if it is a masterpiece of it's class.
    I would keep criticism to the project not the title and keep it constructive in order to help other people out not slag them down.

    I agree here, thanks Dawgstar.

    Yes, you could say it's a action-master G60. Though masterpiece scale to fit in with the line, and hopefully masterpiece in detail as well when finished. The idea behind non-transforming customs would be to just fully cram as much detail and poseability as you can to get a true representation of the character.

    Crotch is Hulk from the Marvel Crossovers and body is Universe Silverbolt.

    This looks so rad. Really dig F_R's version but am very keen to see how you go. I take it this isn't to be a part of your other Dinobots?

    Haha nah, not a part of the WW II era guys -but sooooo much more! A line of all 5 Masterpiece style Dino's! I'm such a huge fan of these guys that I'll hopefully have a set of all 5 dino's from my custom WW II era (2 more to go- and almost done at that!), Masterpiece (got Grim, should have Snarl and Swoop in a few months time, This Slag, and Sludge is in negotiations!), and G1 (got em!) by the end of the year. that's alot a Dino love :)

    I should be the same as you, but all mine will be transformable. Sludge and Sanrl for me are on the drawing board. I have the transformation sorted for them both. So Im hoping by the end of the year that I could have all 5 masterpiece bots/alts which will be transformable. I only have G1 Sludge though that was given to me free about a month ago, cant afford to get the rest.....

    I gotta say you have done a fantastic start on this figure, its going to look awsome next to the other dinobots.
