    Blackout to Grindor Redux(repaint update 7-29-2009)

    Alrighty, well I did this guy almost 2 years ago and decided it was time to update, repaint and retool some parts, particularly his face and extra weapons. I'm repainting him to resemble Grindor from ROTF. The figure is based of TFTM Megatron, extra parts come heavily from voyager Blackout, Dlx Scorponok, a Revell Apache model kit, random robot parts from Ironman to Gundam's. Went off the beaten path a little on this one. I should have more pics up of him with the new colors tomorrow. Lately I have had a lot more time for my customs so hopefully I can get more up here in the future. Thoughts and comments are welcome =)

    Update 7/29/2009
    Repaint almost done, just needed to get some more pictures on here, let me know if he needs anything guys :) 

    Update 8/5/09
    Took way longer than I though I get this done, sucks when u only get 2 days a week to work on these guys but its worth it. Let me know what ya'll think, also theres a lil sneak on my Fallen repaint in here.

    Update 8/25/09 Added to my ebay page Custom Transformer: ROTF Grindor Leader Class - eBay (item 170375848471 end time Sep-01-09 11:25:54 PDT)

    I can barely even recognize the Megatron figure it's based on. Great job!

    Thanks :) 

    I think the feet are the give away, I wanted to remove that middle toe, but started running into stability issues so I left it there.

    Thanks, he's actually my first kit bash, I built if for myself to fill the gap in my collection so he's like my first born figure wise lol

    Yup he's going onto ebay once the repaint is done.

    Fantastic job! Shows how awesome it could be if they gave Grindor/ Blackout a proper class size.

    Thanks man, I feel like we are on the same page customs wise as far as the movie-verse goes, non-transformable but unique, really liking the way your Powerglide is going.

    Just posted new pictures, I think I'm almost done with paint just more details at this point, oh the devil.

    Thanks man, when are we going to see more Obliticon stuff??

    Haha, I wish, I'm trying to engineer a large scale version from Unicron since Blackout is basically a "stand up former" but finding the helicopter kit is turning into a nightmare.

    Thanks man.

    I should be getting the final pics of him up tonight and I will be shooting him against ROTF Prime, Ironhide, and a couple dlxs, to get s feel for the size.

    Thanks a lot guys, I honestly expected more criticism on this guy then I have received.
