    The Classics Grimlock needed some thing more. Hes cool in his own right but the thing on his back makes him look stupid. I removed that thing and base coated him blacke. The entire body was then drybrushed over silver. I then used Vallejo clears to go over his gold sections and gave him blue eyes in bot and dino mode. I left areas missing paint for the shear reason of grimlock not like oil bath him king! A new paint job wasn't enough he needed more. I remade his double barreled gun and gave him a flaming Roadbots sword and shield. The flame is detachable and also doubles as mouth fire:thumb

    Nice paint job. I was pretty disappointed with the classics Grimlock mold, but this paint job has made it a lot more appealing.

    Wow..painting the entire chest gold makes him look a LOT bulkier. As it is, straight out of the package, he looks too small to be Grimmy. But your repaint really bulks him up quite a bit.

    ME LIKE! Another fantastic custom! My only advice would be to add a Autobot logo to his chest. That'd look super sweet! ;)
