    This is my first custom. I started it around 3 years ago but stopped due to some problems and started again earlier this year but got stuck again because the pin in his right fist wouldn't come out. I tried hammering it out, tried heating it up with a soldering iron but eventually decided to just drill it out and now its finally done. I'm going to replace the G1 symbols with G2 ones at some point but for now he's done.

    Some pictures make him look a little brighter than he actually is due to flash but it was the only way to get some good pictures.

    seeing as G2 Grim is the only G1-era Dinobot I own, any custom devoted to it is good in my book! :thumb (heck I think my second custom was G2 Animated Grimlock)

    Thanks for the comments.

    If I ever manage to get the botcon set that's what I'm going to display him with.

    Great work on your first man. I really like the color choices with the silver and gold placement. Now get back to work on the next project, if you have one that is

    I freakin love that blue, it's pretty bang on. However, does it sparkle that much? I'm not really feeling that, but man, you did a very good job if this is your first custom. Hmm, I have been wanting a Diaclone Grimlock custom...........:D

    I agree, this turned out great! (especially for your first custom!)

    I really like the look of the mold in G1 blue and the paint apps and details look pretty nice, man! Keep up the great work!
