    Introducing Grimlock. He's number 9 on the henkei list. Just 3 more to go! He's colour scheme actually looks slightly lighter in real life. It's actually black mixed with an overdose of clear coat gloss. The colour tone plus shading makes like look black in certain angles. Not quite so actually. Well, enjoy the pics!

    Love it. I've never been a fan of his robot mode, he looks like a dork, something about the proportions....

    Also, I don't know how I feel about a shiny Grimlock, I always pictured those guys as the dirtiest of the autobots....something about their personalities makes me think that they wouldn't appreciate nor tolerate cleaning or polishing, and that they would like to get dirty and roughed up a lot.

    Just to clarify, the chrome on the chest and gold chrome are factory?

    Yupz. It's all factory much like MP-08's gold and silver chrome.

    ANd no no! hehe. My grimlock showers 3 times a day with body scrub and facial wash. Maybe a manicure or 2 at times with Arcee! :D

    I don't know what could be wrong with his robot mode proportions, they're pretty much standard TF sizes/lengths. So few pictures, Sabsabby! :(

    his thighs are quite small I thought. his shins are beefy as they should be, but not his thighs. they're also quite short.

    Oh yes! Haha. I've been stretching myself too thin till I sometimes lose track of what needs to be done. Sorry!!!

    And oh, hey Mr Redline, is it necessary to actually change the camera gibberish to proper labels? I kow this sounds lazy but I really wanna take a day to send all my customs to the gallery but when I see 15 to 20 customs with each having 15 over pictures, the thought of spending hours to rename and resize them is...errr..heheh. You know!

    I would love to see someone find a way to bash this mold into a more G1 transformation. The tail flips back like the head in the G1 toy. Then make a tail that replaces the feet/head. To me, it's the feet/head that's the problem.

    yes it is, but it literally takes minutes to do even 15-20 sets of photos. read the gallery submissions guidelines document located under "Radicons Info" at the top of the screen. It documents a freeware program that is awesome for picture viewing, light editing, resizing, and batch renaming of photos. The reason for this is because when someone clicks on one of your pictures in the gallery, the filename is displayed in the titlebar of the window, and that's also used for google.
