    I made some more add-ons, my favorite part of customizing. Rather than amend the existing thread, I wanted to post all the fun pics pertaining to the add-ons.

    Grimlock is part 1 of a new series I will be venturing on. This is the "War Within" series, and although they might not be spot on reproduction of the comic portrayed characters, they still possess the character descriptions and are from that story line. A meaner, darker, more violent, "all out" war between the Decepticons and Autobots. There are no limitations to the destruction caused by both sides.

    So here' part 1, Grimlock in "Frenzy Mode"
    Grim's head is an authentic original G1 Grimlock head. I made the original head so that it ratchets off the mount which was shaped more ball joint-like so the head gets more poseability. The grimlock head pops onto that same ball joint.

    The guns came from a Universe Dropshot, which I bought for some great arms and legs I am using on a Shockwave project. I added some screws from the inside which screw into the handle of each gun - giving it lots of strength.

    I like the way he came out...a real war machine. Paint job as usual looks great. Does anyone else think he needs a few more guns? ; )

    Haha! Nice!

    It's sort of absurd... but there's always been something sort of cartoonish and absurd about Grimlock, and so it works... even though it really shouldn't :)

    I figured Grimlock's a goofy idiot, who'd better fit the persona of a dinosaur headed robot with BFGs blowing everything up, not bothering to even aim ;)

    "Do you want to see Grimlock angry, well do ya punks?" Wow, thats absolutely freakish and badass all at the same time. F_R, you really step from outside the box on creating the WW Grimlock in frenzy mode. So for that great work once again.

    That's really quite silly. In a nice way :)  Could the immense missle-filled guns attach to his back when he isn't blowing shit up, perhaps? Maybe they could (sort of) form his G1 "wings" in silhouette.... might look rubbish, but just a thought.

    Love the paint job as always. The mold makes for a good Grimlock, just not The War Within. The War Within has cybertronian alt modes. Also you are becoming like Jin S. with the excessive use of accessories, especially ones that don’t go anywhere in one mode or the other. It certainly looks good in pics and I’m sure helps to sell the product because it does make stuff look more badass which may be the reason why they are included. I’m just not a big fan of lots loose accessories but that’s just me. I do like the idea of the dino head in bot mode but if it was somehow incorporated in the transformation (and not have to be removed in alt mode) then it would be awesome.
