    Bought a big box of Tfs at a Flea Market and ned to start using them up. I started with the Armada Dinobot (aka Megatron) mold to make a grimlock from. hes primarily a repaint with the custom weaponry. The sword is made from an Iron Spidey claw with a power Ranger ax as a the handle. Gun is random robotic Shotgun with the rest of the Rangers ax as a handle.

    That is more what the classic should have looked like.

    Wow I did something almost exactly like this, but I used a G1 Grimlock Head for the dinomode, BW Grimlock robot head. Removed the was tailclip,moved the robot arms futher out by connecting the via screws, createda sword from a Gundum Epyon figure and made the duel rocket launcher gun from a KO longhauls misslies. As soon as I get a chnace I'll post mine to show you what I mean.

    Still I agree, this mold is what they should have used for a Classics Grimlock rather than what we got. Great job Shinobitron.

    Fyi,the armada figure is called Predacon,not Dinobot.
    Very nice repaint, i never started mine,the official classics Grimlock sucks,this would have been great.

    I thought about doing something similiar, but I've just been modding my Animated Grimlock instead since he has the size I'd like compared with the rest of the classics Bots.

    While I don't really agree with that, I do think that this custom looks really nice. This is one of the few molds from BW that I've always really liked. This mold looks ESPECIALLY nice in silver.

    Great work man! :thumb

    This reminds me a lot of the IDW Grimlock. Great paint apps. But I would have left the pincers on the tail if they would have came with the figure. But maybe not since it came from the Flea Market.

    Very nice, but I feel like the tail is missing something, a finishing touch to top it off.
