NICE! Just curois are the Dinobots now truckobots?
nice stuff, but which one is which? i assume grimlock is longarm and sludge is optimus
Cool idea, any thoughts on the other three yet?
Jumping chilly beans! Those are awesome!
Awesome idea. Good execution.
I would of made Grimlock more like this:
Thanks for the comments. I agree Grimlock needs some gold. Sludge needs something to make him Sludge. I think some head mods. They both need some details, but I was excited to get them up and I end up spending a lot of time on those little details. I plan to do the rest of the team if/when I get more paint. Blackout/Swoop, Dropkick/Slag, Barricade/Snarl. Oh and I know I forgot the mudflaps.
Hmm...very interesting...you made these movie toys actually look good...love the grey coloring you used...it fits perfectly for the dinobots...
I knew Longarms head would be good for Grimlock.
I love what you've done with these.
Sludge's grey looks really nice in vehicle mode. Looks like an old truck. I like it.
Grimlock looks awesome in robot mode, but vehicle looks a little plain to me.
Though Grimlocks rust/dirt round the edges is fantastic.
i like em but think sludge needs a new head.
Yeah... I really like these, but I agree that Grimlock needs some touches of dirty gold and red to "pop" him as Grimlock. And a different head mold will do wonders for Sludge... though the alt mode sort of makes a brilliant sort of sense. Maybe a rounder head with a slightly more humanoid vibe? Perhaps a repainted movie Bumblebee head?
I like the earlier comment about the Dinos being truck-bots. There are certainly enough trucks in this line to allow it.
They look great, but as a couple others have said, Grimlock could use some more color in robot mode. You should make Starscream into Swoop, too.
What about movie Dreadwing as Swoop? Swoop always seemed smaller than the other Dinobots, and the back of Dreadwing's head (the nosecone) would look right as the back of Swoop's head (the crest). Of course, Dreadwing would need a face...
They do look great so far!
IMO, you should try and make the alt-modes more fearsome (ie: towtruck into gun turret, and turn the Sludge into the Rhino Truck from MASK)- The Dinobots have always been about Power>Disguise. Other than that, I think they look great.
All I see in the Prime mold is...Prime. Needs a new head at least.
I like it -the quality of the work is great.
But looking at that truck I only see Optimus -no matter what color he is.
Those are great! Longarm works great as Grimlock I agree another head would improve Sludge, but overall thats some fan-freaking-tastic work. Keep it up and please post more.
Sludge definitely needs a head swap. I say stick with th truckbots theme...Dropkick would make a good Swoop. Ironhide and Rachet could be used for Slag ans Snarl.
wow, that's a sweet idea! good execution. now you just gotta do the other 3
