    LEGO Creator 31058 was released in 2017 and back then, I had built a Transformer Hovertank using it (video below):




    Looking back, my attempt above was definitely not my finest custom LEGO Transformers (from official set). Limbs not tabbing together nicely in vehicle mode, a part or two fell off during transformation due to weak connections. etc.

    As the Pandemic lingered on this year, affecting me financially, I am forced to amuse myself using whatever LEGO sets I have in my collection. So I decided to "reboot" the set above and try yet again another Transformer for it.

    So DinoJet is born!

    As expected... he's pretty articulated and poseable.

    VIDEO TUTORIAL:

    since this LEGO set is not a recent one , chances are many of you guys (if you're ever into LEGO!) would not own them. If you do... hope you can try build DinoJet by following my tutorial below:



    thanks guys!
