Custom Dinobot Slag by mrdeflok Custom Dinobot Slag by mrdeflok
I've only done a couple of customs before so I probably shouldn't have tasked myself with making the whole Dinobot crew as an early project for a relative newbie.

My intention was to make a classics set of Dinobots using military vehicles as opposed to Dinos to make it explicitly clear the Dinobots are all about dealing damage.

I chose Hailstorm for Slag as part of my goal was to make the Dinobots have similar features to their original G1 designs. In Slag's case I wanted his bot head to look kinda like how his G1 head pops out of the Triceratops' mouth so I altered the transformation of Hailstorm to create a frame around the bot head.

I also liked the squat stature of Hailstorm as it feels very Triceratopsy.

The recipe is HFTD Hailstorm (of course), PCC Double Clutch's combiner head and Generations Drift's shortswords.

Should say Slag's about 99% done as there's a bit of touching up to do.

You can see the WIP shots of the other Dinobots here:

This is what the team looked like about 2 weeks ago...

Shouldn't a dinobot resemble a dinosaur in his alternate mode?

As I said "My intention was to make a classics set of Dinobots using military vehicles as opposed to Dinos to make it explicitly clear the Dinobots are all about dealing damage."

Additionally, in the comic continuity, before they came to earth, they had similar alt modes.

Thanks for looking!

Oh ok I get it now. But I think it would be cooler if you were to give them their own group name. New names and new backgrounds would make them more original. Keep up the good work.
