    A set of customs I made after seeing the 2D art by Pheonix Prime from TFW2005.

    They put together some very nice looking renditions of the POTP Dinobots as the MMPR Zords. I like the idea so much I decided to make some for myself. :D 

    You can check out the original post where Pheonix Prime posted their art below. I am planning on making the full team in the future, but wanted to post the first two until then.

    Very nice! I can’t wait to see the entire team together and the combined mode. Any thoughts on whether each individual limb will be an arm or leg just yet?

    Sinnertwin would work for Sabertooth Tiger, provided he can find a decent head to replace the dual serpentine ones.

    Had the Predacons been CW-compatible, as opposed to Titan class... Rampage with a new head would have worked for Mastodon. Blot could work, but would need extensive retooling, I wager.

    For the moment, he could take Swoop and make a Pterodactyl Pink Ranger figure, and use the mode with Slag/Swoop as legs.

    who to convert for the mastodon?

    the saber tooth tiger could easily come from a predacon rampage limb figure i guess

    maybe the predacon rhino headstrong might look good bashed up as the mastodon?

    sludge could just be painted up like the Titanozord or whatever that one was called.

    was there ever a stegosaurus zord? at all?

    I could totally see Slug being re-made into a Mastodon, new head and re-sculpted back end.
    Or, could get crazy and have the head on the opposite end of Slug, and it detaches to be a shield in combined mode!

    POTP Sinnertwin could be Sabretooth, the body shape is right and it's already mostly yellow.

    would it be possible to salvage the fold up lower arms /lower dino leg claws from the earlier classics grimlock and mod them to the dino legs of the power of the primes /combinerwars grimlock figure just to improve the dino mode legs?

    hmm it looks like potp grimlocks legs work such a way that if you were to sand the claws off the front of the dinomodes lower legs, then fold out the robot mode fists then salvage the fists with fold up dino clawed feet(the entire lower third of classic grimlocks dino mode legs for all intents )

    then attach those parts using a dowl rod set into classics grimlocks fists(for potp grimlock to use them as proper feet for dino mode

    basically in dino mode ptop grimlock would be holding classics grimlocks fists in his fists using the dino leg parts salvaged from classics grimlock to set potp girmlocks dino legs up in a proper upper leg, upper knee joint, middle leg, lower knee joint, bottom leg, ankle, feet set up



    something like this but with the fist to fist connector rod making it so that potp grimlocks dino legs would be using classics grimlocks dino leg/ feet parts to provide ptop grimlock wiht a proper set of fully articulated legs and clawdd feet for dino mode
