    yes these are all original, but junkers that i saved, i buy lots and somethimes get broken ones

    waiting on a $5 grimlock who had his head snapped off to come in so i can finish

    swoop had wings snaped off and broken beak

    snarl and sludge were both broken in half

    and slag, well he's just slag

    overall cost about $35

    Wow, what a giant piece of crap, I can't believe you made that. Hey, you asked for feedback.

    I'm kidding, that is pretty damn neat, the head looks a little big, but the concept is cool. Nice work!

    Definitely nice. I'm anxious to see how you fix it up, but even from this rough look it's really good.

    1. Since all the Dinobots have black heads, I'd stick with that color scheme and paint the helmet part of the head black, but leave the face grey. Since it's a larger head, that would be more interesting than if the whole head was just black. You could also maybe highlight some of the details on the helmet with grey (like Sludge and Snarl have.)

    2. I would definitely paint that center chest piece red to make the body more cohesive, make it look more like a body and less like the underside of a Transformer. Some kind of detail on there would be nice to... maybe Grimlock's dino head? Or borrow (and repaint) Devastator's chest piece...?

    I wish there was some way to make the limbs longer and less stubby looking, but overall it's neat how you got it to work. Love how Snarl makes a foot!

    I got Slag and Sludge for around $10 each over the past fews year, both without accessories but undamaged. So yeah, if you're looking for incomplete or junker Dinobots, they're not that expensive. If this was made out of MIB guys, well, then we'd have to break out the pitchforks and torches!!!

    Does it seperate, and what is Swoop now? I'd love to see a pic of the individuals, especially Swoop and the torso guy.

    My only crits are that the legs are a little short and that they're too far away from the hips. Kinda looks like he's taking a dump. For for a first custom that's a pretty good job. :rock

    I dig it! :thumbs2:  As said, the hips could use some work, but you are working this up very well.

    I wish Hasbro would make a 5 to 6 member dino gestalt, but they'd probably reuse two molds. :p
