    Technically it was a G2 Grimlock... ;) 

    I added articulation at the elbows/knees, I added ball joint articulation on the legs/arms & robot and dino heads and added a completely new hip/thigh assembly. I also added fold out hands (F/R style), actual feet (masterpiece homage), new robo head and small dino arms from a Classics Grimlock. I also extended the neck in dino mode to accommodate the new articulation.

    I added some small details to cover up some of the stuff I removed and added some details. The RGB parts on the robot legs are actual translucent plastic, not paint.

    The sword is custom built from a few misc parts and an inverted blade from a Brave Figh Bird. The gun was from a janky car toy that I noticed had Grimlock's gun as a weapon. The only difference is there's no ammo clip on the bottom like the original. I drilled out the gun barrels for added detail.

    Added some red paint apps in dino mode, some severe weathering to the paint app and added front upper teeth to the dino head. The small part of the tail is attached with magnets and attaches to the back in robot mode.
