Dino-Riders Monoclonius w/ Mako

Recommended Posts

I've always had a love for this old toy line from the late 80's. I grew up with Dino-Riders and ever since I got into Bionicle I have wanted to build them on epic proportions. Now that I have enough pieces and the skills to build them, I am trying my hand at them and liking the results! I want them to all retain an action feature like the original toys had.

 

This is my first completed Dino-Rider model. This is the Rulon Monoclonius with Mako. Mako is a hammerhead shark headed Rulon warrior. The dinosaur has head ramming action and can be seen below in the video link. Theres more photos in my gallery on Flickr.

 

Google Dino-Riders if you want more details on the characters and story. You will see whats in store for the future....

Elemental Rahi in Gen2, anyone? A write-up for an initial video for a G2 plot

 

I really wish everyone would stop trying to play join the dots with Gen 1 and Gen 2 though,it seems there's a couple new threads everyday and often they're duplicates of already existing conversations! Or simply parallel them with a slightly new 'twist'! Gen 2 is NEW, it is NOT Gen 1 and it is NOT a continuation. Outside of the characters we already have I personally don't want to see ANY old characters return. I think it will cheapen the whole experience to those of us familiar with the original line...

To be honest, I'm much more impressed with your version. It's really accurate to the source material, even if the saddle fit isn't quite as flush wih the top of the dinosaur, and the legs are a bit too thick. I am, however, quite fond of the head; your use of Technic parts to craft such an awesome-looking head thats smooth and detailed is just marvelous. You've always been one of my favorite builders ever, and seeing this reminded me exactly why :)

Fantastic work! I don't really remember this line from childhood but you've DEFINITELY done it justice! The dino itself is my favourite part of this build but that's probably because I'm more familiar with dinos than dino riders! The head is probably my favourite part. It looks beautiful both with and without armour. The turquoise belly you've given him right along the entire length is very impressive too, I can't even begin to imagine how you achieved such a great result!!! You weren't a Zoids fan by any chance were you? I'd love to see them in Bionicle!

...That is incredible. The dinosaur flows beautifully; the head, torso, legs, tale...everything. Perfect. And the teal, masterfully wielded! It is, undoubtedly, far cooler than the original toy. The saddle sticks out a little, but otherwise perfect. Definitely one of my favourite MOCs.

I am happy that you all like it. It was a long process to build this and took me almost a year to build i between lifes happenings.

 

I agree on his feet they are a little big, but it kinda gives him a cartoony appeal.... it looks cool when he is posed running. I may try and rebuild his feet later but they seem to work for now. Its stance is incredibly stable. I might drop the saddle a bricks height. I cant remember if it was raised due to clearance issues or not. Ill have to see....

 

EDIT: The saddle cannot be lowered without remaking the base or choosing a different turntable. The one i have under there is the firm click type which has a tall base. I can lower it almost two brickheights if i had a flat turntable.

 

I hope to get my Pteranodon finished soon to accompany this. The medium blaster on this dinos right side crosses over to the pteranodon as well as the deinonychus, so those may be he next two add ins.

 

Also noticed that i uploaded a couple of the wrong photos that had some parts that i forgot to put back into his frill after unpacking him from my brickcon tote..... more pics to come haha

This...is...AMAZING! I love the Mctoran feet in the tail! The cock pit thing is a bit high, but that's more of a nitpick.

All in all, this is SPECTACULAR and one of (if not THE) best MOC I've seen in a while. I can't wait to see more! :)

At some point you realize that you are but a speck in the Universe.


That you time in this worlds is but a blink.


You see the whole of reality as it unfolds before you.


You try to see how far you can reach, and it’s not that far past your face.


But then you come back from the brink.


You hold them in your arms again.


And you know that you are where their world begins.


You are their rock.

This MOC is so awesome that words can hardly describe it. If there was a competition for building a Bionicle animal with rider, you would almost definitely win. If there was a star rating system here, I'd rate this MOC 5 out of 5 stars. ^_^  :D
