    I wanted to do a classic next and who better then Grimlock.

    He fit into the back of this 1/60 Gungam and will be painted like the classic version.
    Barbie sippy cup was part of the commission.

    Almost ready for painting.

    looking classy there aprim. Love all your pretender work. Gotta say though, the autobots sure got shafted when it came to cool looking shells.

    wouldn't classic grimlock be a better fit as his transformation is a closer match to pretender grimlock's transformation?

    KIIIIINDA wish you had gone with "Classics" Grimlock (since he's all covered in Pretender Grimlock design cues) rather than the G1 version, but of course MOST potential viewers/buys will probbaly prefer G1 :) 

    Edit- I see DHX was there before me, though its a LOT more than just the TF scheme that's homaged with the Classics version.

    Great work on the shell, as always!

    Well it was considered. I used his head.BUt i hate the Classic grimlock Dinomode. The dino heads becomes the feet. It never felt like Grimlock to me.
    Reading through the G1 Marvel comic, it was G1 grimlock, just smaller. I went for it.

    You probably didn't considered Energon Grimlock, now that looks exactly how G1 Grimlock transforms, but you wanted something different, correct.

    I did consider him. absoultuly. I Really like the Energon version, but I'm a G1 fan, and I use G1 parts whenever I can!

    Grimlock needs to look like the comic/cartoon versions..none of the others come close IMO.
