    What are some of your thoughts on other dinobots. What I mean is using different molds for them. I will be working on a "Dinobots" custom pretty soon. And the molds I have chosen are below

    Grimlock- Universe Onslaught
    Sludge- Crossover Hulk tank
    Snarl- Energon Landmine
    Swoop- Rotf Mindwipe
    Snarl- Universe Dropshot

    I will be painting them up in their g1 colors. but what are opinions that you other radicons have.

    Not bad. I do think that Sludge shouldn't be larger than Grimlock though, so maybe switch those? I know Grimlock has been done with that Hulk mold before, but I think it's better than Onslaught.

    Also, to keep Swoop smaller than the others, maybe use Terradive?

    Seems perfectly sensible to me. Sludge is traditionally a sauropod, Grimlock a tyrannosaur. The former is much, much larger than the latter. Just because Grimlock's the leader doesn't mean he has to be the biggest...

    Steampunk dinobots sound really cool. Can't wait to see them.

    I was thinking of Generation thunderwing. Since my g1 swoop wings will possibly fit. I have seen a few swoops done with generations thrust, so i might work on that. Keeping Swoop smaller should look good.

    yeah, i posted on another board the ideas I came up with (with some help as well) and got my candidates on order. After seeing what Sculpt-Bot did with that Steampunk Jetfire, I was inspired to take a crack at these.
