    Saved the best for last. This guy is far and away my favorite of the three. I think, bot mode wise, this mold works perfectly for Grimlock, though the alt mode is a questionable. Not alot of changes on him. His head is just modified from Primes. Close up you can see the teeth on the sides of his mouth plate, but they didn't really show up in the photos. His sword, like Snarls, is built from styrene, with the handle from Drifts longsword. His gun is a bunch of fodder and styrene I had laying around, and the tips are made from MP Skywarps null rays (i got him for like $15 in the clearance isle of a Walmart last year, though with all these MP Swoops coming out, I'm seeing I probably could have made better use of him). I think my favorite part on this guy is since his hands can fold down for transformation, he can point his sword instead of just always having it at a 90 degree angle. Enjoy!

    Love the concept, the paint is beautiful. My only slight criticism is the head appears a bit rough, but that could be the photos. Love all these guys.

    On principle, I'm opposed to non-dino dinobots....but I'm making an exception here. These are just BEAUTIFUL!

    I think the alt mode works well! In that paint, Prime totally disappears and I get a War Within vibe from the exhaust pipes and the front end has this great vaguely creature-like look to it, with the exposed gold ever so slightly suggesting eyes.

    I gotta say, this was an overall brilliant idea. I would never have guessed those sculpts would have worked so perfectly. The fact that you nailed the colors and painted them so well certainly helps.

    You've convinced me that this mold is more Grimlock than prime.
