    Before the Autobots left Cybertron in search for the Allspark, the Dynobots were actually closer to Megatron than Optimus. They were a last call search and destroy team, sent out when others had failed, with almost no hope of returning alive. Grimlock felt Megatron was stronger than Optimus, and he has no respect for the weak.

    That is, until Megatron began to destroy hatchlings. How could anyone kill those whose life has just started? Since that day, Grimlock has sworn loyalty to Optimus. He still sees him as weak, but he sees that Optimus' weakness is better than Megatron's heartlessness. All warriors must have a heart.

    Grimlock is a repainted TFTM Longarm figure. The lightbar was removed from his cannon/tow hitch. Also, heis sword was cobbled together from Gundam parts, and airbrushed for the gradient look.

    Your love for this mold really shines through. This is one of your best ever, and I feel that's saying a lot looking at your past work.

    Both the customs AND the backstory you came up with for each one are all kinds of awesome, you should be proud.
