Studio Series 86 Dinobot Slug and Daniel Concept Designs

Hasbro Designer Evan Brooks @naveskoorb on Instagram brings us another update to prehistoric sci-fi Dinobot Studio Series 86 Dinobot Slug and Daniel. As before, he's shared the background process on how these two figures were developed. He's not talking "Slag" either, as he explains Hasbro decided on a more neutral name that won't offend some. Read on to see his notes on how this Leader class Dino and friend came to be with notes and images from the process.

Seems like a lot of reveals dropped today.
Hope you all are excited for the cool things the team has been working on!

Continuing with Studio Series 86 Dinobots, here we have 86 Slug and Daniel!

Just to clarify, Slug had a slightly different name in the 80's that has since been shifted since words can mean different things in different countries.

As you can see from the images, this is a Hasui san item (as are all the dinobots) so you can see it's chocked full of wonderful detail that references the G1 toy while having the proportions and design elements of the Cartoon animation model.

We began development on Slug and Daniel right after Grimlock so we had a better understanding of what we could do at this pricepoint and scale.

We wanted to make sure we got Daniel in at some form since we hadn't solidified bringing Core Class over to SS just yet so that's why he was chosen as an accessory character.

Other than that, there isn't much to tell!
Development went incredibly smooth for Slug. Deco wise, colors were lifted right from Grimlock to make sure they all looked like they're on the same team (as they should!).

Deco was based on his Animation model instead of his toy so red head and silver horns.

My one regret is we had to remove the little silver hits on the helmet to meet our deco quota. Whenever I have to remove paint, I always try to pick areas that are at least easy for consumers to apply themselves if they need to add them.

I know the dinobots are some folks favorite Transformer characters but which team member is your favorite?

We'll get to all of them at this scale, eventually!

So instead of a shoulder gun like the original toy and maybe a tail filler, as the gun can be stored on the dino mode in other places, they add in random pieces to turn the tail into a shield? I mean, it's interesting and a part of me really likes it but what is going on with DNA designers? lately. There's been as many misses as there are hits with their upgrade kits lately. But it doesn't matter as there's a very vocal minority of the fanbase who thinks everything Hasbro does is shit and that every single upgrade kit is the best thing ever and if you have an opinion at all about anything then there's something wrong with you. Yet this is the company that changed their Siege UM/GOUP leg kits for the better after people like me told them the original design was lackluster.

I can get a tail filler and a shoulder cannon from Ebay but I was waiting on this to get everything from one place made of plastic that I don't have to worry about when I put Slag into a storage bin.
