    Finally got her all painted up! I'll reserve combined mode for once i get the rest of the team finished.

    Robot mode. She kinda looks like a dude, i thought about giving her lipstick.

    Dino Mode. I really like the dino mode. i think it totally fits in with the others.

    Group shot with the others. man my shelf is full but she sure fits in.

    Some of you might remember a previous post i did for a new dinobot combiner torso and i ended up using Grimlock (Minor/Repaint: - new dinobot combiner torso) to make it instead of the intended Strafe. At the time i couldnt find what i needed to make it. Now, i do.

    At the moment all i have is a digibash but i've started painting and fabrication. Let me know what you think.

    To make Strafe i am going to use POTP Hun-grr. I thought about making strafe from sinner twin but i wanted a torso and this just makes sense.

    Here is robot mode. The only thing that will be different is the addition of wings. At first i thought this color palette was horrible, but as i kept going it grew on me and now i really like it. I'm debating on coloring the hands because im worried about paint wear.

    I really like dino mode. I'm now making the head gold while keeping the jaw silver. it will look better in robot mode.

    And here is torso mode. I think this will be really nice. Changing the color scheme i think gives it a different look from abominus.

    Keep in mind these are more G1 accurate color schemes and we know the yellow is going to be gold to match the other dinos.

    And here is a progress shot. I've got the heads going gold. Second coat and i really like where this is going and keeping the jaw colored different i think gives it a little something more. Honestly i really like that purple but its gonna go.

    Well thats all i got for the moment. Let me know what you think or if you have any ideas where to improve.

    Also i need an idea for a weapon. My other custom has a combinable trident to go with the sea theme. This is going to be more of an air theme. I dont want to do a great sword. I was thinking maybe an axe/hammer. Ideas?

    ty

    ty. name, nope. i'm up for ideas. Im not feeling a machete. its too...swordy. I mean i like the idea of a flyer with dual swords typically but i feel that between the original dinobots all having a sword and some of my custom dinos using swords I'd like to do something different. I was thinking of maybe a scythe but not sure how i want to try to implement that.

    Maybe the scythe could attach to the tail? Or even it could be the wings in dino-mode

    i just finshed the wing connectors last night. i need to do a little something to the wings to put it all together then i can start painting the body. Lego ball joints are so good. The forearms/thighs are done as i added the clear coat last night.

    some concept sketches of the weapon. I think i like the double scythe in the first one rather than the T scythe. Thoughts?

    May be able to get good scythe blades from wings of legend scaled figs.
    Prime legends Cutthroat has nice foldy ones or that orange Titan Masters Pteradactyl.

    Those 7in Sigma 6 weapons have nice staff pieces, or AoE voyager Grimlocks.

    Cool looking project.

    im actually planning on using the wings and since they are on lego ball joints popping them off for combined mode and having them reattach on to a ball joint i will put in the custom spear i'm going to make.
