    ever since I was a kid I always loved grimlock, especially the marvel comics version, giving Grimlock a more cold, savage and strategical personality to the character as the true king of the dinobots, so since the style I've been using being cartoon style, at times some have dubbed it as more comic inspired than cartoon, I figured it would make sense to bring the comic grimlock into the masterpiece line with a closer to the comics appearance than the MP-08x that came out a few years back, he features one of the coolest gimmicks ever, COLOR CHANGING Blue to Red and Back LED Eyes for both Dino mode and bot mode, special thanks to fellow Floridian big Hank for his masterful LED Work I gave him a high contrast cel shading with dark tones of grey, yellow red and of course his comic exclusive blue paint apps, detailed the bolts on his grey areas with a lighter tone of grey for a subtle but welcome contrast and although I kept the light up feature on his arm I painted the sword to look as if it were lit up all the time which dims the light up feature but I think this looks better for the style, I didn't paint the crown of leadership simply because I like it's blingin aspect but might go back to it depending on feedback. Hope you guys like him! :)

    that looks amazing. scrolling through the pics, i thought it might have been BH with the leds, i had to scroll back up and read the descreption further.

    looks really awesome, maybe some larger pics, do this custom justice.

    The clarity of the colors and the nearly flawless application makes this a true masterpiece.
    Excellent job!

    Thanks! the shadows are my favorite aspect of this style too! :) 

    Thanks man, glad you like him, I'm not sure why the pictures came out smaller than usual, maybe it's because I tried to get full body shots to get the full extent of the celshading, and Grimlock is one big Monster, I'll see if I can get to take bigger pics when I add his blaster. Thanks again!
    Cool man, we are comic compadres then! :)  thanks for the compliments and the vote on the crown!
    Thanks, I love how he turned out too! :) 
    Big hank! wow it's hard to believe your humility is superior to your Led skills, but I would not undermine your work by calling it "small" the Leds on this guy came out so awesome, seamless and so easy to switch from red to blue my mind is blown away by just thinking about how cool this feature is! Thank you bro, you desrve the praise for it! :) 
    Thanks Glad you are digging this style! :) 
    thanks!
    Thank you! I appreciate it very much!:) 
    Wow, thanks so much for the kind words, I'm really happy my hard work on this guy really came through! :)
