    My usual cell shaded style, plus tons of detail, washes and everything needed for a MP figure.
    The interesting part for this set is in the extras!
    I always loved the funky intro for season 2, and how cool Grimlock looked bitting that terribly out of scale Thrust. That's what inspired me for the first bonus item: WST Thrust.

    The second bonus item is pretty obvious. I scratchbuilt Wheelie from various transformers and GI Joe parts, and I painted him in the same style as Grimlock. He does not transform, but he's very poseable.

    Man, I have so many variations of this mold, and I STILL want to get yours, lol.

    Great work, the cell shading of his chest in robot mode kinda looks like camouflage.

    Wow, looks great with the bright yellow and white versus the chrome. The various grey's are so subtle at first, but really work together fantasticly. I love it.

    Remember the MP-08 repaint that's supposed to look like 2D drawings of Grimlock from the comics? They should've hired you.

    Always awesome. Never really liked Gnaw until I saw him repainted. Coincidentily enough I picked up a Gnaw at the Goodwill for 1.99, just missing his tail and his gun. I'm gonna be working him into something incredible. Thanks for the inspiration.
