    I was a bit peeved when I found out that Grimlock was not able to hold his gun as a blade like Cybertron Snarl could, so when I picked up the figure (no thanks to Hasbro Toy Shop), I decided to give it another handle.

    I used a Lego piece.

    I drilled a hold in the back of the gun (which incidently has a hole there already, just not wide enough), with a drill bit.

    Attach with glue.

    And now Grimlock has a gunblade that he can terrorize the Decepticons wtih.

    Looks better that way IMO. The weapon sorta lacks as a gun.

    That is all sorts of awesome. I might just have to do that, or something similar. Thanks for posting that!

    nice mod... maybe they intended to add that

    before now, I just thought the weapon was more of a bayonet.

    I wanted to do that but haven't found a piece to use as the handle. Maybe now I can track down some legos.

    I like it... in fact if that were a woman I'd marry it and call it Zelda.

    Many thanks for the tip! Thankfully, one of the Lego Exo-Force sets I have has an extra one of those parts.

    I just picked up a Grimmy and preformed the mod (I love my Dremel).

    Now I need to remove the gun holder on his back (temporarily) so I can pull his chest apart and see about fixing that damn arm / upper tab issue. I just need to be able to slide that black part up about 1 mm.

    Yeah, I did it. It took maybe 10 minutes, 15 if you count my glue drying time.

    You can find the pics of it and my panel lining of the entire figure here.
