    A fairly simple custom, in theory. That Hulk mould is a nightmare for rubbing issues but I finally got them all ironed out. Still strugging to get good photos of my work (you can't see all the nice wash work, especially on the gold) but c'est la vie. Perhaps he's not exactly 'Steampunk' but that's how I think of him now.

    He's got waist articulation now, instead of that crappy spring-loaded punching gimmick. I'm debating whether to include the mechanism from Ani. Grimlock that makes the sword 'pop' open... he can hold it without, though.

    More pics to come.

    Wow, was that really my Grimlock head? where's the rest of him :lol  Good job on the paint, I'm suprised the head fits so well on that body.

    Heh, well, there's a few other parts of him inside there. The head wasn't such an easy fit, had to resculpt the inside of the chest and re-hinge all the flaps n stuff. I love how it looks on there, though.

    Needs more hoses, brass and copper details, and some actual crude looking steam-ish apparatus. great job so far, but i wouldn't call it 100% steampunk yet, and i know steampunk VERY well.

    XD

    The original intent was to do just that, hence the name... but instead he sits among my classics as a repacement to that god-awful anorexic dinosaur.
