Dinobot Combiner Extinction Fan Creation

For your enjoyment, yet another fan created Transformers masterpiece that makes you see the never realized opportunity with the Generation 1 Dinobots. Created by FrenzyRumble (if love custom TFs, click the link), this Transformer goodness takes the Dinobots and combines them to form Extinction. The result, as you can see from these few images, is quite stunning. I am not entirely sure, but as an interesting touch, I believe this combiner is also a headmaster with Wheelie forming Extinction's head. More images of the figure can be found here. At the end of the gallery is also the origin story for the character. Thanks to Amar T. for the pictures.

  2. According to the Transformers Wiki, the Dinobots made a combination in the comics. Fan reaction was OUT-OF-CONTROL negative.

    Still looks kind of cool, though. You think Dinobots combining, you think the first ever Megazord from POWER RANGERS, but his one actually looks cool.

  3. I love these customs. The paint jobs blow all regular figures out of the water. I liked the story the guy came up with for it (or it might have already been in the cannon but i never seen it). I don't get the OUT-OF-Control negative feedback. I'd call any fan a lier if they didn't imagine this idea and think about how badass it would be. If you are disappointed after you see it than thats another story but now you've been able to see it as a physical toy and thats cool.

  4. Why does it look like Slag is humping this combiner's leg? Anyway, even with that in mind, he looks pretty awesome, too bad the concept was never explored further in comics or cartoon universes.

  5. i always wondered why the dinobots never formed a gestalt yet they were the primary foe for devastator in the cartoon.......this would have made for an interesting match up..

    or maybe a match up with predaking...hmmmmm...

  7. The Dinobots never formed a gestalt because the original Diaclone toys didn't.

    Extinction is not The Beast. Extinction is amazing. The Beast sucks.
