    Hey guys, I'm at it again with breathing new life into the figures from the defunct D.I.C.E. toy line.

    I managed to pick this guy up for really cheap on ebay.

    The question is, which character should I make.

    1) Grimlock v2 - The original turned into a raptor where as this becomes a T-Rex. Could I make this Grimlock then go back and repaint Grimlock v1 as Overkill?

    or

    2) Overkill - Perhaps I could reverse option 1 and make this Overkill and keep Grimlock as the bike. Painting white on this large of a figure will be a pain though

    and

    3) Original Character - Scrap the idea of making this into an established figure and instead make a fan character

    Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated

    Umm....I think I'm going to go with the near unanimous vote for Trypticon.

    Scales would be begging on his knees for an update, but he doesn't have those.

    Additionaly, I'm really taking my time on this guy so I can sell it. I'm thinking that perhaps I might get more bidders with Trypticon rather than Scales. Otherwise, people that saw it would probably say " who the %$&@ is Scales?"

    My vote goes to Scales regardless.
    Trypticon was a huge carnosaur not a small dromaeosaur.

    To heck with it, I'm making both.

    I just realized that the one I got is missing it's tail (so glaringly obvious now).

    I ordered another off ebay (under $15 shipped) so now I can make both Scales and Trypticon. The foremost will be tailess and the latter not.

    Can't wait to start work on these guys!

    And that's how a Radicon works around a tuff decision.
    Looking forward to seeing both.
