    I'm just going to finish up where Hasbro left off. I'll never understand why they applied what looks like a wash to only one part of this toy. It looks half assed.

    You should customize a sword for the guy. That seems like an oversight on Hasbro's part.

    I'm honestly not a fan of the wash. I ended up leaving my Botcon Custom class unpainted because I realised how much I dislike the paints in general on the toy, but if your going to have a wash effect yours is the way to go.

    The head in particular looks much better.

    A bit too washed for my taste... I know Grimlock is a greasy guy but..
    I would haven taken a Gundam marker and just marked up all the panel linings.
    But I do like the arms, head silver paint.

    There are some spots that are too heavy, but once it has had some time to set I'll go back with an eraser and even things out.

    Highlighted his bot parts just before I went to work. Make for a nice contrast of clean bot parts / dirty dino bits. Didn't have time to snap pics before I ran out the door, but hopefully I'll be able to get them up tonight when I get home.
