    I took an original Generation 1 figure, but mixed in with a variety of parts, giving him improved articulation.

    Grimlock's now got articulation at his shoulders (via ball joints), elbows (hinge joints), hands (hinge joint) hips (ball joints) and knees (hinge joints) I also made a 'slide' for Grimlock's head in robot mode. I've always felt it sat back too far on the top of the chest. This head also is on a peg joint. Lastly, I added some small details to his lower legs to better represent the cartoon images.

    Grimlock was base coat painted with House of Kolors and detailed with Testors Model Masters (enamel) This version of the Dinobots, I went with a more metallic gold rather than the cartoonish yellow-gold used on the last set.

    My favorite one, especially the last pic. I've been staring at G1 Grimlock for months trying to figure out how to give him more articulation, excellent work there Mike. If it wasnt for the Dino arms and a couple small details, you'd almost think this was the MP version, nicely done.

    I was going to suggest using a Pretender Grimlock head. It's a better sculpt IMO and is only a little bigger than the G1 version.
