    Oh, about the beast mode...Technically, this Grimlock isn't a dinosaur. Instead, I'm running with the idea that he once was stationed/hid on a jungle planet where he met a fierce predator animal that almost did him in. He respected it's sheer brutal power, so he took a mechanical version (which he designed in his head) and made that his altmode. When he left the planet, he actually became so fond of it, that everyone who told him to take on a different altmode got a brutal beating with their own arm.
    As for the beast itself: I based it on a combination of a T-Rex and a Great White, with a double arm system (meant for piercing, grasping and crushing things). Oh, and his sword is hit in the tail (and yes, it's a BIG sword).

    Interesting concept. I love the bot mode, especially the head design.

    You mean the beast mode? It's in the sketch. :)  The blade is that curved thing at the end of the tail, which isn't segmented.

    Looks pretty cool. I like the idea of him being something similar, but not identical to a T-Rex. I've been working on a Grimlock design that isn't really a carbon copy of a dinosaur too, but I haven't even started the robot mode yet.

    T-Rex and a Great White, huh? Kinda out of left field, but I gotta say I like the results. ^_^
