    Grimlock is one of my Favorite all time characters. When I took on the Pretenders I decided the Autobots needed to be more robotic then the monsters, and the monsters needed to be BIG! Well Grimlock needs to be the answer to the size difference. I decided to make Grimlock a 1/60 scale, when the other autobots were 1/100.
    As for the pretender, people mentioned i should use a Classic Grimlock, but I'm old school. G1 Grimlock, added articulation and juiced up. I also gave him a Balljoint Dino-neck for the twisting dino head action! Classic Grimlock Head fits perfect with him. I tired to make him different from the previous G1's Grimlocks we seen.

    Special appearance from Goldbug that Bryan (Brunkion76) articulated for me!
    I love this little guy! Hope you guys like the pics.


    Heres the pics..

    Thanks man, Im running out of Pretenders lol.

    Thanks I really wanted to do him, I feel like i got him the way I wanted him.

    Thxs

    I took 2 pics, and both had mis-transformation. I will take new ones, he fits back there pretty well. I put the Dinohead on a ball joint so it comes off and goes into a hidden spot inside the Shell.

    So glad you like him!

    Thxs G60!

    Thanks..dude...sure send me your address Ill ship him right over.

    It was the GUOF 1/60 Kit..its pricey but nice. I will say this, the ball joints suck. I had to renforce one in the leg. For such a Pricey kit I wish it was more sturdy.
    Thanks Paul...remember were seeing TF3 next week so come by and see it in person. Its much bigger then the pics look.

    Thanks

    Ahhh, the man himself..at least you know your painting advise is being put to use :) 
    Hey I got the OL...You ready to make another monster?

    Thanks King...now give me that huge ass megatron!

    ^^ ?? Not sure if that's a compliment or not, lol.

    Man, once I get this I will HAVE to do a group shot. Oh wait, there's still another big one coming. I hear it's a real "monster."
