    Hey all! Here is my most recent completed articulation project: The Monsterbot Grotusque. Let me preface everything by saying: This is one goofy figure. The alt mode is the first thing you wonder about. To me it looks like a winged, saber-toothed guinea pig (I know he is supposed to be a tiger.) The face sculpt on the original figure made him look like the pouty introspective member of a boy band, and of course he shot sparks when you pushed the GIGANTIC button on his "tiger" head. I definitely think something was in the designer's drink when he looked at it and said "cool!"
    With all that said, they made up for it by making this character actually cool. He is ashamed of his alt-mode (as well he should be,) and is actually a very intelligent, strong, and fearsome warrior. I wanted this incarnation to reflect more of that, so I added a different face to the bot, put in a ton of articulation, and made dual blasters out of his 2 tails (WTF!)
    This guy will be going on e-bay shortly with his fellow Monsterbot, Doublecross. Enjoy!

    I applaud your work dear kind fellow, but tell me before you put him on ebay will you be doing the trio first? plus nice usage of both TFA and classics parts on him. But might I suggest that you put some cat like ears on his so the cat part of him does shine out?

    He looks like a bear with little angel wings! :lol 

    Nice job... I had the original Grotusque, and against all reason, I always kind of liked him.

    Those aren't the original wings, are they? Where are they from?

    man i love what u did to him
    he is truly a frankenstein,with all the different bots u put there in order to articulate him

    actually is one of my first tranformers and i always had a special place for him in my heart.
    yeah he does look but like a guinea pig but still its a kids toy and i dont think that any kid would tell ya ,that he is not a cool toy.

    I'd love to see a more in-depth look at what you did with this guy. Love the character, shame he's never really been utilized (well. I know he was in Maximum Dinobots).

    just wanted to log in and say that you're a basher after my own heart sculpty. Had this guy back in the day and he was one of my favorites. I've been thinking about fixin' him up forever.
    I absolutely love what you've done.
    very nice!

    I just picked up this bot for my collection last summer, and was really impressed with his coolness. You've really took him to another level of coolness. Sculpt-bot hits another home run as usual :thumb

    These 2 "monstercons" are quite impressive SB, as usual...your take on obscure molds is extremely impressive.
