A MOC based on the 1980s series Dino-Riders. This one features the Triceratops from the new Dino line.
About this creation
Yet another Dino-Riders themed MOC. And yet another one using the Triceratops. This one was based off the Monoclonius from the original toy line, which was a particular favorite of mine growing up. It wasn't my favorite dinosaur from the line, and there were definitely more impressive ones, but I liked the balance of weapons / armor to dinosaur... which was apparently something I cared about as a preschooler.

The main features were the two distinct laser designs on the sides and that sweet seat for the pilot. I'm reasonably happy with how both turned out considering the medium and my limited brick supply. Coming up with new brain box designs for these is turning into an interesting little problem...



The other side's laser cannon. The design was taken from the last Triceratops-based MOC I did, mostly because I had this one in mind from the very beginning, but I did modify it slightly for the sake of being not entirely lazy. I think this one has a bit more of a "we pulled crap off our busted spaceship and stuck it on a dinosaur" feel, which I do enjoy.



The back-left view.



And the back-right. ...I really need to get an Atlantis hammerhead.



And here it is with the brain box from the last one just for fun.



...and it turns out that with a few minor modifications, it can easily seat a minidoll from the LEGO Friends line. Here's Olivia, the mastermind behind the evil Rulons' brain box technology, posing with a recent addition to her army of brainwashed zombie dinosaurs.
