    ....Well, technically G2.....for now!

    UPDATE w/pics and video on post #80!
    UPDATE w/pics and details on posts #65!
    UPDATE w/pics and details on posts #39 & #40!

    I went to town on Grimmy here! Still fully transformable!

    Beefed up his arms with styrene to look more "MP-ish", scratch built a new ab section for articulation, scratch built feet (just roughed in so far).

    Articulation galore:

    Shoulders: ball joint, swivel, and hinge
    Biceps: swivel
    Elbows: hinge
    Wrists: ball joint, swivel
    Hands: Index finger, group of three (Alternators style)
    Abs: crunch, twist via ball joints
    Waist: ball jointed (limited range)
    Hips: swivel, hinge
    Knees: double Ball joints
    Ankles: ball joints
    Head: Ball joint, swivel (possibly double ball joint, still working on it!)


    Still a long way to go on him, need to settle on a plan for the neck, refine the feet, add LEDs to the eyes (both modes), paint, etc.

    Recipe:

    G2 Grimlock (base)
    Classics Rodimus (hips/thighs)
    Classics Grimlock (head)
    Alternators Sunstreaker (hands)

    Enjoy!!

    Thanks Tom!

    The feet will work. As of now they don't (just popped them on for pics) but I have to carve out the inside and center to clear the thighs when transforming. That's one of the last things to do besides the neck,and sculpting on the knees a bit. The plus side is it allows a tad of articulation at the base of the tail in T-rex mode. I should grab a couple more alt mode pics, but I'm lazy.......tomorrow, lol.

    @U-9: Thanks bro!:thumbs2:

    Great work, way beyond what i could ever hope to do. Something about the transition between midsection and hips is bugging me a bit though.

    Um, wow. Really, just keep him G2, and call it in, because I like the colors that are setup. I can't believe how much you put into the abs section for him.

    You should keep him in G2 colors (blue or turquoise). We almost NEVER see a Dinobot done up in G2 colors. And honestly, the Dinobots were one of the few examples of a G2 color scheme (Black Sideswipe being another) that didn't suck.
