    Funny how things work out sometimes.

    [​IMG]

    A friend on a different board had been nagging me for months to make him a TFTM Grimlock. I finally started one about 2 months ago, and finished him up last week. Unfortunately, he dropped off the face of the earth, his only contact being a request for his money back from the deposit. Geez...

    [​IMG]

    So, here is again, now on eBay (I finally made my own for my personal collection! Yay!!!) because a Grimlock is a terrible thing to waste. :lol

    No sword this time, just the good ol Dinobot we know and love (well, maybe I just love him...Hmmmmmm???? :sly2: )

    Enjoy!

    Damn, he looks nice, but then again, so did your last one. It's too bad (for me, not you) you're ebaying him. I might have been tempted to buy him if the price was right... But I guess now with Bob Barker gone, it never really is, now is it?....

    that's a shame. did you meet the time estimate you originally gave him? Luckily, I get commissions from very patient people. At times I will get an impatient one where I actually just offer them their deposit back. I think in all fairness, the commissioner should deduct your costs, or wait for the ebay auction's end price to get his $ back.

    Back to the custom, looks great. I like this better than the other one I remembered you doing (dang this is #4?!?!?)
    The orange on the steel looks awesome.

    Oh, I like this one so much beter than the v1.0. The bright blue windows are a bit...bright, but aren't a distraction (I think maybe a dark gradation to match his visor color would have worked, but it isn't an issue).
    The colors map really well with this figure, too. Amazing how useful Longarm is!

    Anyway, excellent work!

    :lol  I've trailed just selling a piece or two here on the forums, but I don't get much interest. if you'd like one, though, just PM me or check out my thread in the Commission/Requests area.

    Yes, I think he was just a flake. It was a 1 month turnaround, had it done in 3 weeks.

    Yep, Cataclizm came up with the idea first, so my paint jobs have always mirrored his vision. i doubt I do any more, but I will take up that advice if I do, bro. :thumb 

    Thanks, man.

    :lol  At least someone will be able to benefit, ya know?

    Looks as good as the V3 i got! Kinda think Grimlock needs a sword though, IMO. Hope he finds a good home

    I'll definately take you up on that in about a month. I've got a few concerts coming up here that I'm not allowed to miss(so my friends say) so I'm being kinda tight with money right now. Heck, I've only bought 2 ROTF toys so far!

    Back on topic, would it be possible to IM me with some price quotes on some of the pieces you have in your thread? It doesn't have to be exact, but I've never ordered a commision before and I'm trying to get an idea of how much I'm looking at.

    You don't live super far away from me, so if you ever come to the canton area and want to see some of AX23's works pm me and we will see if we can work something out.
