    GRIMLOCK (aka GRIMZILLA, The Barbarian)

    1984 toy problem/issue:
    (Had the generic one, finally got the real one, looked like crap)

    This TRANSFORMERS/Godzilla cross-over is a match made in robotic transforming heaven. A custom figure where Mecha-Godzilla meets Grimlock! GRIMZILLA LIVESS!!! Grimlock is another favorite character that has had so many versions made. The masterpiece Grimlock was the best available so far but was still small for my taste and bit to cute and fuzzy to be the barbarian known as Grimlock. But what I've always wanted to see is a large, menacing figure with extreme bulk and as we all know there is nothing out there available. So what I did was make a custom that didn’t move away from the original but mirrored the original at a larger scale with a lot more modern technology and better proportions. Pretty much my main goal was to create a g1 figure that was more g1 than the original, 80’s style, with 20ll technology, and a bit of GODZILLA FLAVOR!!

    Special Features:
    - Massive figure which stands 15 inches tall, no need for a stand this monster stands on its own two feet.
    - Articulation overload, including Grimlock and Mecha-Godzilla head on ball joint, articulated hands, articulated Godzilla arms and legs have 360 degree rotation as well as 90 degree ratcheting joints in shoulders, elbows, and knees
    - Super Poseable
    - Transformation is exactly like the original from the 80’s but at a much, much larger scale
    - G1 Styling
    - Painted in classic generation 1 colors using only the best and most durable enamels

    BONUS FIGURE:

    Custom Universe Legends: WHEELIE
    This can't be a 1986 tribute GRIMLOCK without his trusty new friend and sidekick WHEELIE!!!
    This very rare hard to find Universe Wheelie is slightly modded and was the perfect final touch for this TRANSFORMERS THE MOVIE 1986 TRIBUTE GRIMLOCK.

    Features:
    -transformers from car to robot
    -minor custom with modified shoulder joints for better articulation
    -minor arm trim for better aesthetics
    -minor paint to visor, windshield, and side windows for more movie accurate detailing

    From what I can see, you used Optimal Optimus' chest and shoulders, Unicron's forearms and toes, Supreme Starscream's legs, Crossover Hulk's hands and feet. You also used some iterations of Mechagodzilla and Gundam GP02 here and there.
