    I just wanted to say my hat is off to you. Looks SO COOL! My CAC character had a lot to do with the Bionotops. any how I'm a huge dinosaur and Motuc fan. I'm stoked to see your progress.

    BTW the magnet attachments idea is going to work nicely – I found some very strong ones of minimal size!

    Here is some progress on the tech details on his head:

    I also made a direct comparison of the head mounted blaster in two panels of the mini comic. The size is WAY smaller when He-Man sits on the head. So in the end I don’t see a problem in using the blaster PD HM came with. I’ll definitely make a turret though to make it appear a bit heavie

    Regarding the beak - here are some references in which it doesn’t appear to be metal…
    http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/m...Bionatops1.jpg
    This will be a tough decision…




    Those dollar store weapons sound great. Any pics you could share?



    I guess this is a vote for a metal beak eh?
    it doesn't appear metal but it's a different colour than the horns. personally i'd go with bone for both or metal for both. (bone would be my first choice though) I wouldn't split the two.

    Here you go

    The beast is still far from finished. I haven't even begun sculpting his mechanical legs yet (I painted them though to getb a feeling for the color choices).
    I'm very happy with the results so far.

    Some of the tech details on the right side of his face:



    So far he has one gun turret on his back (he may get another one on his right side).
    The turnable weapon attachments are made interchangeable with strong magnets. I myself prefer the big anti-aircraft gun.



    The Bionatops blaster is now mounted on his head. The turret allows three display options:
    - active attack mode (the Bionatops controls the weapon)
    - passive


    and of course:
    - rider control


    By the way - the beak of the Triceratops actually was covered with a layer like the ones on parrot beaks and therefore is a different material than the horns. So I'm going with different colours for each The horns will be painted a tad darker once I'm done though.

    What do you think?

    Thank you guys! Your support really helps me doing this!

    Just to give you some kind of update on the progress:

    As you can see on the last pics I cut off that frill on the Triceratops' back. As the dinosaur is a rotocast that created a large gap and the beast looked like a piggy bank...
    Well I used some green stuff to fix that gap and then sculpted some new scales using Apoxie sculpt. This is still WIP of course as not every scale is done yet.


    And I even begun sculpting onto the legs. This is very early though, so don't expect anything great just now


    That's the progress so far - I'll keep you updated!

    Greetings,
    DB

    Big request

    Thank you guys!

    ----------------------------

    Fellows, I have a BIG request.
    Just heard that the Bionatops makes several appearances in the new mini comic.
    It will still take about a month until my I receive my copy. And I really could use some more reference pics to continue my work on the beast...
    Could someone PLEASE send me pictures of the dinosaur in the new comic? I don't even need full panels - just pics of the Bionatops himself.

    Greetings,
    Michael
