    I liked classic grimlock until i saw him repainted as skullcruncher, as i don't want both of them to have the same mold i decided to rescue my junker grimlock from when i was a kid.

    i have finished the added articulation in bot mode, still having a bit of difficulty with the T-rex, but i am getting there, he will be getting G1 cartoon acurate paintjob when finished.

    update!

    just about finished, just needs a bit of touch ups on the paint apps.
    he now has ball joints on his shoulders, elbows, hips and neck

    Be good to see when he's finished, amazing what articulation can do for reviving some of the G1 toys.

    Are you going to try and slide the head forward, swap the brickhands for Gundam-style hands, stuff like that?

    i am looking for a joint that would allow the head to slide forward for robot mode and back for dino, never thought about the hands but now you mention it i might try it, this is my first attempt at articulating g1 toys so i'm not too confident at it yet.

    I always love to see Grimlock bashes and like others mentioned it's amazing how added articulation can make a cool figure even cooler. :)

    Dude, this looks GREAT! You've done some great mods to this and I really dig it. Seeing you do this makes me really want to update my G1 Dinobots and do something similar. I may hit you up sometime for tips on what you used for the ball joints and where I can get some like them (they look great).

    Keep up the great work!

    Looks awesome, man. I've got to ask, though, do you plan on giving him knee joints? Not that it matters much, its already leaps and bounds more articulated than the original.

    This toy was great as is, but now it's even better. I wish more people would give G1 figures articulation.
