    "Me Grimlock not truck, me Grimlock King!"

    I painted one of these a while ago, and when my buddy Plowking bought it, he really liked it, which motivated me to do one more.

    I did make a few changes, mainly with a few paint app locations, and moved the decals around a bit, and added an Autobot shield to the hood. I figured if someone as good as PK liked it, it's good enough for eBay.

    Enjoy, fellow bots. (And thanks PK for the motivation!)

    I like this one too bud....the new details and label location is just enough to make him a little different from the original...top notch job as always :thumb 

    To who ever gets this one:

    Trust me, you will not be disappointed in AX23's work....I'm always admiring the one I got from him, it really is a nice piece.

    Now get cracking on those other customs you told me about!! :D

    Damn, Grimlock looks like he could work for NASCAR pit crew. But still very great work.

    Great job on this one! I'd only suggest that you add some flat black and chrome on the wheels. They look off in that bare plastic color beside all the great-looking paint apps you did.

    While I think you've done absolutely stunning work on all of your other customs, I think Longarm>Grimlock is your signature piece. At least in my mind, this is not only my favorite custom of yours, but the first one that immediately comes to mind when I think of your work. Personally, I think that's a cool place when an artist is identified with a certain piece of work. :wink: 

    I really like what you've done differently on this one, especially the deco in alt mode. You've managed to take a custom that, as I'd said, has your signature; do many things differently; and still have your stamp on it as well as having a drastically different looking piece. My hat's off to ya for that alone.

    Plus this piece simply rocks. Great work! :thumb

    Aww, man. Thanks, SQ7. that's some heavy compliments coming from you.

    Funny thing is, every time I decal one of these I think, "Don't put too many". and then I use the whole sheet! I guess it's like a perfect storm to me. I was hoping a Radicon would pick it up in the Junkion Exchange, before I put it on eBay, but I of all people know how tight budgets can me right now.

    BTW, Plowking, SICK SIG!!!
