    Here's my custom Dinobot Styracosaurus "Spire"
    As is evident, he started out as a POTP Slag. His frill is made from styrene. I cut the original off except for a small bit up top. I made a plate to cover the holes that his horns were plugged into. I shaved down the crests on the sides of his bot head and I used epoxy putty to build up his mouth plate and eyebrow ridge. I had to shave down the port inside his dino mouth and I covered it with a bit of styrene. I definitely like the Autobot symbol better there than where it comes printed. The faction stickers are from Reprolabels.
    The only other mods I made were to his backs of his shoulders, where I sanded them down a little so that they don't rub on his frill in bot mode.
    I was planning on making him more colorful, but I like him in black. It fits his character, which I imagine as a gloomy, emo type. He's smart for a Dinobot, which makes him something of an angry loner. He does not like to fish.
    What do you think?

    Awesome. There's no such thing as too many Dinobots.

    Thanks! I agree!
    Thanks! Working on thia guy, that definitely occurred to me. If I did another it would probably be a protoceretops or a monoclonius

    Here he is combined. I still dont have Snarl and Sludge, so this is as complete as my Volcanicus has gotten so far.

    That is awesome! I've been hoping for a whole slew of custome OC dinobots since the announcement of the core 5. He looks great!
