    Hey gang! So, I finally got all the new Power of the Primes Dinobots! I really like them for their nods to the G1 figures (and, honestly, the 12 year me from '85 would have been excited about them combining). BUT, like everyone else, was bummed they didn't all have their swords and blasters. Don't have the money to order some of the great 3rd party or Shapeways options, so I dug through my mod-fodder bin to come up with weapons for everyone and painted them up! I also added blue to anyone's eyes instead of the red or yellow. (although, I just realized Slash needs some blue eyes - I'll fix that!)
    Thanks for taking a look, let me know what you think!

    Here's a quick video talking about what I did on each of them -

    I'm pretty certain they're from the ROTF Dirge/HFtD Jetblade mold.

    I used Tamiya brand paints;
    X-11 Chrome Silver
    X-5 Red

    If you ever are interested in the paints, I typically list them in the descriptions of my videos.....wasn't sure if folks wanted to have them listed here in the forums too?

    No problem... took me a moment, though I recognized them, to figure it out! Again, great work!
