Masterpiece Slag, Snarl, Swoop, and Sludge

Postby Wikkid » Sun Jun 24, 2012 11:27 pm

:shock: I've managed to keep a narrow profile in relation to his Whiskey barrel design by having the rear dino legs fold behind the robot leg. From the front he still retains a slim profile. His robot feet sit atop the Triceratops back but rotate and roll under the leg to form a fully articulated foot for robot mode. (Which also reveals more robot tech) The "wings" on his back fold within the body so they end up less obtrusive and also helps with keeping him compact rather than the kibblefest that the Dinobots actually are.

Image

Image
^^Using a "Fender" like design, I made his dino legs tuck into the body when in Triceratops mode to give it a heavy duty "tank" feel. When he transforms to robot mode, you can see more detailing underneath to give the impression he's more vulnerable in robot mode. (As the Dinobots are)

Image
^^Here's a size comparison shot with Hot Rod to show scale. I don't have Grimlock anymore so a d00d can measure the screw holes for comparison.

Image
^^Slags actual sword looks a lil goofy due to the hilt being all curly an **** so I redesigned it with the same shape in techno robo stuff.

Image
^^Normally I don't do toy tributes but I added the shoulder rocket anyway. Gun is complete.


Also of note: This figure will be painted by Stormbringer85 who will cell shade it to look movie accurate, which means he gets dino eyeballs.

I agree, really cool!

Is the head an entirely new cast?

To answer a few questions.
The head is a modified Primus head. I found the face scaled nicely with the likes of MP Rodimus.
I do have Snarl planned but likely won't do any others.

This ones ready to ship for paint. Here's some outdoorsy shots.

Bit of an update on these.

Image

The teradak.... pterodac.....pteradac.... bird head uses an MP Grimlock head as a base which allows me to keep the eye swapping action. One will feature his goofy eyeballs as it seems every Dinobot other than grimlock had eyeballs. I can't decide on whether or not I should put teeth in it`s mouth. Sometimes he had em and sometimes not.

Image
I don`t think I`ll be using this head. The smirk isn`t really a Swoop characteristic. I need to find one with a blank `dumb`look. MP Hot Rod has such a face. :tflaugh


Image
The feet are from an Energon Shockblast and allows for alot of articulation.


Image
Wingspan is HUGE.


Image
Changing up Snarls arms to try and differentiate them from Grimlock. One again I`m back to MP-01 hands cause they r00l.
