    Just a simple TF Animated Grimlock repaint and new face sculpt. I will have a few more pics later today. Along with the g1 style animated Prowl. O.k. So now for some more information.

    I have really been impressed with the animated toys. Much more so than I thought 6 months ago. As grimlock being my second favorite transformer ever, I had to add a little something to this one. I HATE THE JAW!! Looks too forced imo. So I cut off the jaw, leaving the screw piece, sculpted a face plate with some "ingraving" in it.
    As for the paint, I wanted to try this fusion hammered metal. I used it on my classics Megs and Grimlock, but did a lot of washing and battle damage stuff. I went just straight for paint on this one. It turns out pretty neat. I was thinking giant metal earth made robot, hammered steel would look cool. I always liked the idea Grimlock "breathing fire" because he has an internal furnace or something like that, so I did a little bit of the fire in/on his chest.
    No battle damage this go around, but I did some panel lines to give it more of the animated feel. Soo, that's it. Next step is to fix the huge gap in the chest.

    The flames I really like. The silver is a bit too much though.

    I was thinking the exact opposite.

    Dig the silver (TFA Megatron could use some too) but not a fan of the flames.

    Very cool; love the flames. The silver could have been a little darker, maybe something like Citadel's Boltgun color, but I'm nitpicking--it's awesome.

    I'd love to see a repaint like this with a slightly larger version of Classics Grimlocks head. This is probably the one animated mold that could pull off having his non-animated version's head.

    I think he's referring to the gap in his alt mode that makes his bot mode head visible.
