    Since I got my masterpiece Grimlock, he's been hanging out with my Masterpiece prime and autobot alternators to fight the evil forces of my Masterpiece Seekers and decepticon alts.

    Alternator Grimlock feels left out now. What character should I make him???

    I think at some point in the design phase, he was intended to be Omnibot Camshaft.

    Doesn't help if you own Camshaft as well, as then someone's still going to need a name change.

    I thought the "Grimlock" body was always intended to be paired with the "Decepticharge" head to be Windcharger...

    Windcharger was the intended redeco, not the original plan.

    Grimlock can become Camshaft, while Alternators Camshaft is actually a "Blue Bluestreak" homage. Maybe that can be Bluestreak as Bluestreak is actually Silverstreak. Makes me wish Takara and E-Hobby would come up with an official name for the Diaclone Blue Bluestreak to un-muddy the waters a bit. :)

    He works well as Alt Camshaft. This is a custom I did a long time ago.
