Slag - G1 Dinobot
.....Dinobots....the G1 Kind...
About this creation
Back to Basics - I am certainly not liking what Michael Bay has done to the Dinobots for TF4. So here is a creation based on the original G1 Autobot Dinobot Slag. Slag transforms from Triceratops to Autobot Warrior. The transformation is close to, but no exactly like its G1 original toy counterpart. This model is more dynamic and articulated than the original Hasbro offering. Enjoy the nostalgic trip back to the 80s!

Watch the video Review on Youtube for more insight into this model and how it transforms!

I have built over 200 legoformers but this is only the second dinobot. The last one was Grimlock about 4 years ago http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/203872 hopefully more to come sooner.
Quoting Walter Lee Totally Awesome! Inspiring! Bravo! It's so much like the original Dinobot, too! Do you have more Dinobots ?? Please say Yes! :-)

Quoting andros tempest Slag was the first Dinobot I ever owned and is still one of my favourite Transformer toys of all time. To see him homaged so brilliantly makes me smile. regarding the debate on killing transformers, I think some of the stuff in that list is gewunner prejudice. I actually like TF:A, TF: P and the Beast era stuff. However the others listed including the non-transformers, Kiss player and saturating the market with bumble bee figures I completely agree with. I strongly suspect the latest crop of bayformer spin-offs will damage the brand, but thankfully they still have Generations and Masterpiece alongside which are still pleasing the g1 purists and nostalgia junkies.
Ha ha! Kiss players, what a joke. That has to be the l@mest idea to come out of the japanese continuity, followed closely by 'Transformers GO!'

it's been 4 years since Grimlock hopefully it won't be that long till the next dinobot - we'll see if I get dino inspired again.
Quoting Disco Chicken Awesome! Will you make sludge, and the other dinobots?

Quoting Chris Roach After the failure of the toys from the new movie you'll be one of those guys too! Just saw a bunch of them at my local walmart - transformers that don't transform ... what a concept!
Oh, I've seen them. The toys are bad; you're right about that. Still, the movie will be pretty awesome. And besides, at least the toys aren't as bad as TF energon...

Quoting Declan Muller
Quoting Chris Roach I am disenchanted with ALL that Bay has done to the Transformers. He has substituted flash and style and killed any hope of story or the magic and wonderment which made Transformers cool initially! There is nothing new or original in what he has done. Don't be fooled. He's not a fan. That's my rant for the day! LOL
Oh, so you're one of 'those' guys. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ruined_FOREVER :P :P :P

Great work, the dinosaur mode is well done considering the limitations of lego pieces and the need to transform into the awesome robot mode! I hope it is. Of four years until the next one!

I was pretty much done with bayformers ever being like G1 after the first Movie - which actually had a story - sort of.
Quoting colby larsen ME COLBY LIKE THIS SLAG! I kind of like the tf4 dinobots, but I don't like that he got rid of sludge and snarl, and renamed swoop strafe. He's a dinobot, not a technobot, for primus' sake! None of them look like their g1 counterparts either! Oh well, I guess we all saw this coming once we saw tf3 wheeljack. I recently built a g1 swoop, so look out for that once I upload it. Anyway, nice build (sigh, I talk too much, I feel like blurr right now)

LOL - likely just slow motion action scenes and explosions! - man I should make movies if that's all it takes to make a blockbuster!
Quoting Starscream Soundwave Excellent work Chris. Even though I've liked the look of most of Bay's Transformers (well it's the designers that deserve the credit for that really) I am also quite disappointed with the new Dinobots. At least there'll be a good storyline behind it all... Oh wait!

The irony is I just slapped this together in a very short period of time - while resorting recycled parts from old builds. I guess I should think less and just build more : )

Quoting Declan Muller I think that these new bayformer dinobots aren't the best, but you have to admit that the new grimlock looks awesome. Still, I don't like grimlock's new colour scheme (toy or movie). But otherwise, he is awesome. PS, what do you think of drift and crosshairs?

Quoting Stuart Lucas Very good and G1-faithful here - I'm definitely with you on TF4! Lots of things I really like about your design, but I'll pick out the clever shaping of the triceratops head, the red engine parts for the robot shoulders, and the general smoothness all round. Great!
