    Ok, I had this idea earlier today, but I wanted to get some opinions before I started out.
    I really dig the Dinobots in general, and I thought the War Within Tank/ Plane versions of them were seriously cool, so I was thinking maybe to take it one step further and try to see how they would look if they were kinda like Earth tanks and planes?
    I was thinking of the classics Seeker mold for Swoop and universe Onslaught for Grimlock as straight repaints, but i'm not too sure about the others... maybe the Universe Sunstreaker mold for Snarl or Slag if i knew anything about kitbashing. But i'm drawing a complete blank for Sludge, so any thoughts? Does this sound like a good idea? It would be my first full Kitbash project, so it might be a bit much to begin with, but on the other hand throwing myself in at the deep end could be a good way of picking things up quickly. so, yeah! Anyone have any opinions or advice about this? I put a thumbnail of swoop and acid storm down below so you guys can see what i mean about a repaint.

    Just my two cents:

    Slag: Universe Overload/Dropshot/Cyb Def Scattershot

    Snarl: ????

    Swoop: Universe Treadbolt (no armor)

    overload's a good call, cheers man!
    I was thinking more of swoop as a seeker mold though, purely because you can put the nosecone up at an angle over his head like his crest in G1 =]
    But you know more about it than i do XD

    If you want to go for that idea then do so! Would be interesting to see a Seeker in Swoop's colours (can't get enough of Seeker customs personally).

    I think Swoop would look cool.I'm currently doing something with these 2 myself but instead of a plane he's keeping his dino mode!!!!!!!

    I Agree with AutobotX23 about Slag.
    I think the Marvel Hulk Tank x-over would make a good base for Sludge.Or maybe Universe Countdown?
    Maybe Universe Onslaught/Hardhead for Snarl.
    I personally love the War Within Dynobots and can't wait to see what you come up with.

    You could always use the Universe 2.0 Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen mold for Snarl and go for his Action Master appearance. WhiteMocha did a digibash of all the Dinobots for BotCon exclusive set, it's at http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-fan-art/240499-botcon-2010-ideas-digibashes.html

    It's Set #7: Capture of the Dinotbots... maybe that could give you some further ideas...

    By the way, I really like your take of Swoop using the Seeker mold

    And knowing is half the battle.

    Anyways, Universe Hardhead/Onslaught is a good base for an almost War Within Grimlock. I've had an entire Dinobots team planned but have not had the time nor money to even start on them.

    Posted the first "prototype" in radicons! Swoop is there in all his slap-dash, unfinished glory. Let me know what you think!

    well after i get this guy finished, i might take rumble619's advice about countdown as sludge =] but not sure yet, really depends on how well swoop turns out. was thinking maybe the new hailstorm as snarl or slag. what do you think?

    Countdown aka Cyb Defense Red Alert is a great choice for Sludge, he'd tower over the other Dinobots like he should.
