After frenzy_rumble posted an ideas thread in regards to Steampunk themed Transformers, it inspired me to start working on this guy. A few months of accumulating parts, and brainstorming ideas, and this is what I came up with. Grimlocks alt-mode was based off an old World War 1 tank, and I used a small model kit of one for the turrets, some of the armor plating, and the rear wheels on the stabilizer trailer. I used a animated Grimlock as a frame, and built it up with numerous parts: some from zoids, Vector Prime, sheet styrene and tubing, as well as some Alternator Meister forearms and hands. I used the treads from a Warhammer 40k Leman Russ battle tank, that were sawn in half and hinged to allow for transformation. Magnets were used to keep the treads open in bot mode. I topped it all off with a custom head that I built up on top of the animated Grimlocks visor piece. I gave it a down and dirty paint job that meshes well wth the Steampunk theme. I hope you all enjoy him!
