    Meet the Dinobots

    So here's my take on the Dinobots if Wheeljack gave them more earth-like vehicle modes. I wanted to take memorable design cues from the 80's versions and translate them into their botmodes so you may notice similarities like Snarl having his tail split behind him, Slag having his head housed in the Dino-mouth etc.

    Hope you like!

    *I posted a thread for Slag and was going to post each Dinobot individually but yeah, couldn't be bothered since these guys are a team.
    *I do need to tidy these up a bit but I'm happy with how they are for now

    What's that? Sludge is way bigger than the rest of them? Sweet justice at last!

    This is an excellent mold selection! I really like the nod to Snarl's split tail with the armor parts. They all rock!

    Here are the two thoughts that ran through my mind as I was looking over these.

    "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO CLOUDS SWORD?!"

    "Terradive as Swoop. Ugh, that isn't going to work we- Holy crap! That worked so damn well!"

    So yeah, these are amazing and I am in awe. Please allow me to post this:

    I'm going to take a wild guess, since I have a metal buster sword keychain, and assume it's something like that. Can't complain though. It, and the Dinobots themselves look AMAZING!!

    Great work, and I wish they were part of my collection. I also wish I had the motivation (and parts) to do a set myself.

    Thanks heaps, guys!

    I got asked at another forum for a shot like this:

    [​IMG]

    The diorama got busted when we moved and then by my son hence it being tattered. I'll make another one in better quality as it's too small for my classics Autobots now (its original purpose).

    Oh, and Grimlock's sword is one of Cloud's. Came in a giftset/box thing with two others similar to it :)

    These look great brother! Great to see them altogether! My Grimlock is nearing completion, but working on Sludge at the same time, so it's going to be some time yet before I can post them altogether like you've done here. Great work once again my man!
