    Hi folks, this was a commission.....more like this was something my son asked me to do for him (which turned into customize everthing from tfs to hot wheels! lol) He had an animated grimlock and wanted him to be different so I suggested the g2 colours and he liked the idea. I hand painted him all using testor gloss blue acrylic and red, and testor gold enamel and silver spray. He was then drybrushed using tamiya silver. I wanted him to have a nod to the original mold and I hated the claw hands so I made a set of hands that are on ball joints and fit into sockets on the bottem of the feet. Hope you like him, thanks for looking :)  comments welcome.....and yes Fiskone I need to finish the club and sword

    You need to finish the club and sword... Oh wait you mentioned that lol. He looks great man the drybrushing is exceptional here and your photography is really getting a lot better. Not much else to say than what I've already said before when you showed me him at your place. Keep up the great work : )

    @thatoddguy thanks I love grimlock and this mold was decent but I hated the foot hands so that led to making a pair to be able to be used instead

    @taiki I am assuming that you mean the lack of proper hands? lol

    @SonofNemesis Thanks man :) 

    @Fiskone The photos I have been trying to up my game and be a little more professional as awell as my paint apps, this figure was 80% hand painted which I don't usually do anymore. but it went down pretty smooth. I love how the decals turned out too

    Great Job! I wish Hasbro would have repainted the mold in these colors.
