    Okay, this may need some more explaining than the title suggests. A few years ago I used this mold to make a Dinoforce Kakuryū for Armada(verse). And a few months ago he met with an accident which damaged his Dino-Head, forcing me to make a new one. Upon doing so I opted making a Slag instead. I used a Construct-Bots Slug dinosaur head (because let's face it, that is one seriously evil looking head), modified it to allow the mouth to open wider, and gave it a new frill, by using the sails from the Construct-Bot version of Scorn. It wound up giving his Dino-Head a very cool Hindu/Tibetan/Buddhist Demon or Devil vibe his frill now appears to have stylized flames. So with this Eastern/Asian influence in mind, I opted to give him a pair of Scimitars to seal the deal. I also like the Scimitars as they can be stored AoE Slug style on his sides. :D 
    Okay Enough talk...Enjoy mates!

    Cool! I like how the character developed by your choice of parts through the build process.

    Wow! love the fire and smoke pics. Great looking build, couldn't figure out the base body, but then I never owned Demolisher.

    Hey thanks mate! Yeah, it seemed to take a life of it's own. It has quickly become one of my personal favorite customs in spite of the base figure's limitations, and my minor paintwork. I really liked the base figure's colour scheme, and just worked around it. Think I might just add some details here and there if anything.

    Thanks bro! Some Armada figures are amazingly quality toys. Very robust in plastic quality and definitely imo some of the best TFers around.
