    Allrighty! I have been working on updated (and upsized ) renditions of all the Dinobots. The basic idea is to have more poseable and a little more science friendly dino modes and more articulated bot modes. They are all in scale to Alternators, and are all accurate sized dinos (Sludge will end up being much bigger than all of them, for example, since he is an Apatosaurus.) I am trying to stick as close to their G1 transformations as possible, and I am making all of their weapons as well. The one place where I am deviating a bit, is in their melee weapons. They won't all have swords. Snarls weapon is a mace that becomes the stegosaur's tail spikes in dino mode. Old Zoids kits have come in very handy with the completion of these guys, and stick with the TF aesthetic quite well, I think. Love to hear all the comments and critiques! On withthe pics:

    One for scale comparison, bot mode stands about an inch taller than an Alt.

    I'm gonna get my post in before this becomes a huge thread. this is absolutely amazing. I mean on a whole other level. kind of like the three alternator insecticons that were done a month or two ago, yet better. if you ever need to, I'm sure you could sell these for $500+ on ebay.

    on another note, I'm about to finish my alt hoist that I got from seeing yours :thumb

    Now that's cool. Send some pics to Hasbro and tell them we want THESE as our Dinobot alternators, not Fords or Mustangs.
