This is my first post to the Radicons page... First off, I LOVE Dinobot, both the character and the toy. While the original toy has its flaws, I like to think it has a certain vintage charm about it. And I think we can admit it was certainly ahead of its time compared to its predecessors. I was never all that particular about toys being "show accurate", especially since the first generation Beast Wars characters were modeled after the toys, not the other way around. That being said, I have always wanted figures from the first season that better resemble the show characters. My goal with this project is to improve Dinobot's robot mode. It will be non-transforming, but hopefully be more proportional and streamlined. So far, this is what I've done: -Cut down the shoulders and fixed them to the sides of the body -Shaved down the heel spurs to be less bulky -Removed the piece that the tail attaches to and shaved down the back nub -Shaved off the 6th "finger" and added wrist articulation -Cut down the raptor head and affixed it to the chest I plan to: -Fill in the holes on the sides and the screw holes in the front, as well as sculpt the top of the raptor head to blend with the neck area -Sculpt the shoulder pads -Detail the head and cut off the "battle mask" nubs -paint and detail Any comments, criticism, and suggestions welcome!
