    Holy wow.

    That's a big boy.

    The PE Grimlock feet fit on the oversized KO? Or did you have to do some finagling to make it work?

    crazy straws are plastic, and 7mm in diameter.
    insert them into those 5mm pegs; should be a perfect fit.
    then cut off excess plastic.

    thanks for the positive comment, folks!

    Very good proportion there bruh. The crazy straws trick, I would have never thought about that. Are they stable/thick enough to not fall out when you insert them to the PE Kit and the limb dinos? I have the whole Black Mamba Set too so I might copy your version but I want to use the OS Grimlock rather than the Voyager. The downside is that the TDW or PE Kits will not work due to the size difference. Well made man. Kudos.

    simple insert 7mm crazy straw to any 5mm peg, like here with Optimus Prime's Ion Blaster.

    Are the crazy straws you used rigid or are they flexible? I see different kinds available online and their diameter is uncertain.

    Awesome combination of kits and KO's! I had no idea that there were OSKO Dinobots out there that could actually work with the torso upgrades. Do you remember exactly which brand of Dinobots you used for this? I'm asking cause I just might have to try something like this myself! :D

    So the OSKO Dinobots have standard-sized combiner pegs? Wild.
