    The second Dinobot from Planet X I could get my hands on was Summanus aka Snarl. And seriously, how good does that gold look on him, especially in Dino-mode? So shiny, as if he would have just stepped out of Shockwave's laboratory. Additionaly I painted his lower jaw in silver, like it was in the game. The other changes were small details, except for his guns. There the plainness was too much for me, so I added silver for the barrels.
    Sorry for the slight misstransformation, but I just noticed after i took the pics, and since it is a real hustle to transform him, I didn't wanna do them all over again.

    Unfortunately I don't own Slag, Sludge or Grimlock yet, but of course I will try to get them, and repaint them in the exact same style.

    Looks great. One failure of Planet X figures is the coloring.
    The colors they choose were very dull.
    It’s a great opportunity to upgrade the figures appearance by adding in these kind of extra details.
    I am planning to do the same.
    I did do a G1 color scheme on PX Caelus some time ago. That turned out great. But I never went any further than that. Seeing your post is inspiring me to put more painting on my schedule again.

    Oh that sounds great! I posted my Caelus 2 weeks ago, but I would be really interested in what you did to him. Do you have pics already online?

    I love this! I'm thinking of doing the same for FP's Slag since I can't find one that I really like and is actually available.

    I’ll have to check out your version. I missed the posting you did.

    The "cheap" looking colours for this line is one of the main reasons I didn't bother buying it.

    I checked out your post on Monday and I think it looks really great.
    I really like the stock color palette on these figures. So, enhancing that is a fab upgrade and that’s what you did.
    I just wanted to try something a bit different with mine. I thought the g1 color scheme would look pretty cool. It was a lot of work though. Pretty much a 100% repaint.

    The FP one Slag looks a bit too "cartoon-sih" and the grey is a bit too dark for me to properly fit with my Dinobots. Wouldn't be a problem if I could find a TW/Zeta Slag.

    That, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, is slick as fuck bro.
