    I don't know where the idea for a movie Grimlock came from this figure:

    I see him as Hoist:

    Does anybody else see this??

    He even has Hoist's head

    I have an extra one that I am going to customize into Hoist

    You don't really need to retool him or remold anything. Looks almost the same. Just a repaint would be fine.

    Yeah, Hoist was the first thing I thought of when I saw the first pictures of this guy. I did a rough digibash of it back then :D .

    I have this WIP in my "currently in progress pile." This mold really is a bitch to dismantle...you have been warned.

    Heck yeah!

    From the first time I saw this figure, I was thinking "Hoist"... and I also agree that there is a similarity in the head.

    I'm currently debating whether to leave him in his original colours and just call him Hoist, or actually go through the painting/dyeing process.

    I only have on small geek issue with using this mold for Hoist... why give a maintenance technician that massive hardcore cannon? :)

    So you can cast Longarm's head (Like I did) and put it on a different body for Trailbreaker.....
