    Finally completed my TWW Grimlock. Some of you may have already seen it. I entered it into the Botcon 2005 art contest. Up first are alt mode pics.

    Bot mode. In the last 3 pics I tried to demonstrate the light piping effects of the eyes. The first of the 3 pics shows him without light. 2nd pic shows him with a flashlight shining through the back of the head. I took a 3rd shot but turning off the flash so the light up eyes can be seen more clearly although the pic is blurry.

    Whoa, its an honor to have compliments coming from you. I've been a huge fan of your TWW designs since the first time I saw them about a year ago. You do such a great job on drawing your designs that it makes it a bit easier to make it in toy form. Still difficult of course but easier nonetheless. And I'm glad to have heard from the Hasbro design panel that you help them draw some of their design ideas. :rock

    Yes, they showed a couple of examples of your concept art drawings. I don't remember exactly which ones they showed and of course we weren't allowed to take any pics. I do remember them mentioning that Primus was based off of your drawings but then again that was well known by most everyone since its a dead ringer to your design :lol

    I swear to God, if anything is going to convince Hasbro a TWW line is possible, it's this. Fantastic job man, I'd buy one.

    You deserved the place you got. Being Grimlock might have influence my statement though, heehee. :rock  It looks like an official toy to boot.

    That's awesome, but the lack of small detailing is really bugging me. That sucker needs some greebles.
