    Big thanks to Italian TF fan Bruno Agostino Scantamburlo for the inspiration (not sure if he's active on TFW Forums but Thanks Loads again, Bud!), I saw his WIP on an aerial custom of a POTP Slash posted in one of the UK TF Facebook Groups which he'd worked into the Skeksis-like hunched dino configuration you'll see in SEVER's Dino Mode. I'd been trying to figure out some kind of differentiation for one of my OSKO Slashes, who I'd already renamed 'SEVER', and this was a bolt of inspiration from the blue.
    It was a way easier conversion for the OSKO due to it's lack of pins (heaviest part was carefully slicing off that tail as accurately as possible for re-gluing back on inverted) but was it passable as an actual IRL different kind of dinosaur?
    A bit of Googling led me to Concavenator, a hump-backed genus of therapod, and for me she'll do as a G1-level of "Scientifically Accurate" one of those with a Swoop-like leg rucksack covering where the supposed spine in the centre of the back is.
    I got rid of the Velociraptor-characteristic knife toe, and added some "proto-feathers" to her dino arms for better representation of her new genus.
    Done!
    Or so I thought...she Columbo'ed me though. I suddenly felt the need to give her a bit more uniqueness in robot mode too, so I gave her some Model Support Goods crest horns.
    Then this morning decided to give her a couple of individualising licks of paint.
    I think she'd finished now but don't be surprised if she Columbos me again!

    Actually she does, I think I'll stick with "Concavenator" though.

    Too true, hadn't thought of that one. Nor had I read the description fully.

    Nice! I'd also be very interesting in seeing what your inspiration did with his Slash too. Could you link the custom?

    She was mostly dinobot colours already, it's this version of the OSKO from Sirtoys.
    I dunno if I can, mate, you have to be in the TF group to see the FB posts in there.
    EDIT:
    Realised I could snag some pics to repost.
    He's gone HARD MODE, he had to deal with pins to do his! Bear in mind it's still WIP.

    No, I was talking about the mod. It was done several times before but for Cindersaur. I've yet to see the mod on Slash's colors until now.

    I'm just curious, because I was one of the first people to do the hunchback configuration for Cindersaur 2 years back
    and I'm interested in whether or not he independently invented it or copied me without giving credit.

    Ah, I see! The Cindersaur Mods have entirely passed me by!

    Neither he nor I are saying he's the first to do it, I'm just accrediting who inspired me. At 2 years out you might be better off letting it go, the idea's had plenty of time to propagate.

    Yeah, we're good. I'm not trying to hawk people for credit, I was just wanting to be sure he didn't try to say he invented it. Besides, I am always happy to see that something I did still inspires people whether it was from me directly or from those I have inspired before.

    When I was looking through the UK thread earlier I thought that this was just a fan-mode but now looking at it closely I can see the difference.
