Well, I colored it! As usual I started to get ansy about half way through and left mistakes un-fixed and things.. All in all it turned out OK. I know Dinobot was warm colors but I like cool better He would have been the grooviest beast machine ever
Awesome beast mode. It's just so amazing, I could cry. The cool colors look cool on him; in fact, his whole design seems to reflect the darkness that is Beast Machines. Do you have a robot mode for him?
Oh, if only he was in Beast Machines, then maybe it might not have felt so...I don't know...just so out of place. I like to compare Beast Machines to Equestria Girls; it just doesn't fit with the timeline, charm or feeling the original series had. I admit it was darker, had better animation and had cool techno music. Still, it just didn't feel like the same thing. It just somehow destroyed whst Beast Wars had created and made it all moot. Now a friend of mine, who is a big fan of Transformers, told me Dinobot did make a small cameo appearance in BM. Since I never could finish the whole series, and she has a reputation for being a liar, I hope someone who has watched the whole series can tell me if this is true or not. Maybe if more of original BW crew were somehow incorporated into BM, then it might not have been so off-putting. As it stands, though, it will never match up to the charm, epicness and depth that Beast Wars had.
That is a nice picture. I have been thinking to myself that if they would have brought Dinobot into the storyline, they could have reused the concept of Megatron cloning Dinobot by using his spark and whatever DNA remaining in his beast mode, use him as a spy, Optimus reformatting him, and then Beast Machines would be awesome. Just a thought.
Love it, I hated Beast Machines but I think it would have been waaaaaaaay better if Dinobot was in it. He probably would have been the second to get the new transformation system considering he's extremely inteligent and a watrror to boot. You think you could do his robot mode?
I quite firmly believe Beast Machines is AU...mostly because of Cybertron's chewy organic center in that 'verse.
But either way, seriously--they go home in Beast Machines, or they go home in Beast Wars, I think Dinobot survived and found a way back. Seriously. TM2+(half)Immortal Spark=well, he ain't dyin' from no wimpy explosion. Besides, he needs to follow Rattrap home. Take that as you will.
This picture is excellently done. I was writing a fanific that relates to this and how Dinobot survived and reached Cybertron before Primal and the gang (Which is how Waspinator got back to Cybertron as well and how Megs got that scar over his eye). This was kinda how I envisioned him.
That is such an awesome design for a BM Dinobot. It beats the hell out of the designs for the beast modes of the rest of the BM crew. Now I can't help but wonder what BM would have been like if Dinobot had been there.
Anyway awesome pic, and I love the colors on this too!
