    Hey gang!
    So, here is my Titans Return Grimlock and Clobber. I started this with the Fall of Cybertron Grimlock - I alwyas liked his robot mode and most of his dino mode. I never liked the head of the dino, so I took the dino head from Generations Grimlock (which I liked much better). I know Grimlock wouldn't be too keen on being a headmaster, but maybe he and Clobber are a good team (after all, the head was clearly ol Grimmy).
    I really liked the way this guy turned out - there's always things that can be improved, etc but I'm pleased with the results for now.

    Here's my video of the process (check out some of my others on the channel there!);

    First off, nice work! I like the integration of the Classics Grim's dino head (tho, I always saw it as a G2 flavored sculpt myself, still works nicely). That silver and gold look really nice,what did you use for it? I found the integration of Clobber's exo-suit to fill the hollowness of the figure to be a nice touch. I too could live with the 'back kibble' in this case also.
    If at all possible , I would like encourage you to try to center your camera when you do the work/fast forward scenes so that we can better see the 'magic' happen. I actually enjoy seeing what techniques you were using to build this figure.
    So, anyway, great work and thanks for sharing.

    Huh, nice work merging the classics figure with FOC. Never would have thought of that but it turned pretty cool

    That dino head just looks so much better than the crappy FOC one, a thing I always hated from that mold.

    Superb custom

    Thanks for that and the critique, I do try to keep the figure in the middle of the screen, but I don't always realize I've moved the figure closed so I can see and out other camera. Haha, trying to just show my hands and not get in the shot, but still being able to see the figure ;-)

    Thanks so much! I really like how this turned out, but still can't wait to see what the rumored POTP Grimlock looks like!

    Hey gang, I just put this guy for sale on Ebay - (kid in college, so it's time to get some extra money flow) - I'll stick a link in the Ebay forum (hoping I'm not breaking a rule by saying that I'm posting over there?)
