Just to fill in the time before the big bad devastator arrives, I’m putting up the final Dinobot alongside a random TF I decided to build. Paddles is actually a lot bigger than the other Dinobots, and for two reasons. First, the type of Dinosaur he’s supposed to be (I don’t know, but I have a strong suspicion) is supposed to be larger than the others. And second, he never gets any love in the lineups except from the fans. So, I’m giving him the largest figure out of the six to give him some better credit. Other than that, there isn’t much to say.

Okay, so let’s start these two off in their alternate modes.

Paddles transforms into a water-based dinosaur, similar to the Loch Ness Monster.


All four legs, as well as the head, are articulated pretty well.


As you can guess, this mode is achieved by folding up everything from the robot mode.


Grapple, or Inferno depending on what you see, transforms into a fire truck/construction truck. I’m going to go with the Grapple and construction truck format for this MOC, but he works either way.


You can see at the top how the crane works.


Like most truck Transformers, this mode is made from folding everything backward.

And now for the robot modes!


Starting off with Inferno, you can see I used a technique from the Universe Legends Megatron figure. That figure had the head attached to the side of his head to give the illusion of it being on his shoulder. This uses a similar technique with his crane.


Other than the crane, the only real kibble is the back section.


And now let’s have a look at good ‘ol Paddles.


Although he’s bigger than most G1 Micro Transformers, at about the size of Optimus Prime with his armour on, he’s not as big as fully armoured Nemeis Prime.


This guy lacks a lot of kibble as well. The only kibble is the extra legs at the lower real legs.


And that’s it for this part of the MOC!

This is the full LDD file I designed for this. But you’re not getting it…


…instead you’re getting this! No Paddles for you! Yet…

Until the awesome LDD file coming in next time, and Devastator after that, make sure you like, comment and add me as a favourite builder. And as always, happy building! :)
