    very interesting. It's definitely better than what I could currently do, but I think the face looks kinda goofy and the add on wing things are not necessary.

    I just resolved to do this to my Onslaught 2 nights ago... I think the mold is a good match for Grimlock.

    However, while the painting is decent, I'm not totally satisfied with this bash. Some of the additional bits on the head feel like overkill, and the parts-forming wings don't really add that much.

    Also, I'm surprised to see that the front "teeth" in vehicle mode were removed, considering they are one of the more "Grimlocky" aspects of this mold.

    But still, it does confirm that this mold can make a bang-up Grimlock!

    i agree with you both, the added wings, which from what i can tell the tips of them are from Deep Space Starscream, is a little bit too much n not needed

    The face, particularly the face plate is too rounded. Looks more like a chibi. Add-on wings is fail. Nice idea but poor execution. I love the custom box though.

    The add-on wings wouldn't be bad if you could somehow implement them into his vehicle mode.

    Also, what did you end up doing with Onslaught's shield?

    Whoops!

    I'm so used to people posting their own customs that I assumed it was yours.

    (totally missed the part about you finding it on eBay)

    That's a damn good idea, interesting find. Do like me some War Within designs, but wasn't massively taken by the Titanium toys, just underwhelming really.. Ah, if only they were popular enough that we had well articulated versions of those in the Universe line, at different size classes...:drunk

    I like the intention behind, but there are some flaws as stated about that make me not 100% like it.

    I effing hate the head that figure comes with, so until I can come up with an idea for an alternate I'm not going to touch this guy. Great alt mode though.

    I think he should've just put spikes sticking down from the front end of the vehicle mode, as that'd give him his shoulder spikes sticking to the sides. The way he did it here, he simply forced it in, and that's why it looks not so good. I also think he should've detailed the faceplate to look WW accurate, instead of smooth like putty.

    Good point about the blades... if he'd put the regular ones on a rotating joint, then they could pivot outwards in robot mode to get a more WW look.

    Also, the wings could be made to work... if they were connected somehow to the turret, and could fold down around the sides of the vehicle mode to look like added armour bulk.

    Other than points mentioned. I'm a little underwhelmed by the paint. It's still cool, I just want more for Grimlock. It's Grimlock, ya know?

    If they point downward on the front of the vehicle (where the mine-sweeps are) then they'd point outward without needing to rotate or anything at all! That's the beauty of it, its simplicity.
