"Fascinating. A harmonic subcarrier in the dinosaur transform static seems to have caused a gestalt resonance in the-"
"Dino-Soar does not care WHY it happened, you pontificating poindexter! Can you FIX IT?"
"Really? That's the name you're going with? Dino-Soar?"
"Shut up. Just... stop talking."
So yeah. This actually looks pretty darn good, all things considered. The dinobot colors mesh surprisingly well with CW Sky Lynx.
One sword is Sky Lynx's tail blades. The other is stolen from... Cybertron Vector Prime, I think.
Of course, one may reasonably ask... what would Dino-Soar fight? And what the heck is Grimlock doing during all this?
"Me Grimlock have touch! What me called now? Lockimus Prime? Primemus Grim? Grimlockimus Rex?"
"Dino-Soar would kindly request you cease your inane banter and lend a modicum of assistance! We can have a coronation later if it would please you! I've heard that you Grimlock kick butt, so PROVE IT!"
Slag and Sludge are arms because they both make terrible legs. Slag just looks like he sat down on his rear and DARED them to make him a leg. He's not the worst leg, but he's the LAZIEST leg. In fact, this is my canon. He refused to put any effort into being something that didn't wield a weapon.
Sludge has a big brontosaurus neck sticking out of the kneecap. It just isn't ignorable. And since they share shins/haunches, they both put some dainty girly ankles on the legs as they taper inward to make a tail. With both of them as arms, the triceratops head balances the brontosaur head(also, Slag's head doesn't look upside-down this way).
Snarl... Oh, Snarl. You try so hard, but you don't make a good ANYTHING. But at least I'm not staring at your insides this way, and you're mostly solid. I don't hate the stego-tail running up the thigh as much as I expected, either. Seriously though, as an arm he has an open wrist, and the hole the hand pegs into is a tiny piece of plastic that hinges out. It is completely unacceptable.
Sky Lynx? I expected better of you. Your joints are all so loose that it is a miracle I got you to hold any pose at all.
Swoop, you are the champion here. You make a good arm AND a good leg, and do it without any complaints or wobbliness. You're a good guy, Swoop.
All that said, I really like this combination. In conclusion: Dino-Soar. About seventy times smarter than Volcanicus, and twelve times more dashing.
And yeah, I know these aren't the best photos. I didn't have a clear place to photograph, and I was kind of just playing around. I mean, you guys have seen plenty of photos of Primes Dinobots and CW Sky Lynx already, you don't need a clean documentary of my fan-character.
