    So if you're like me you saw Age of Extinction Grimlock and thought, why does this look nothing like what we saw at Toyfair or the Grimlock on the big screen. And well long story short here's my attempt at making a more screen accurate Grimlock.

    Also due to the transformation and how many things slide in on themselves or peg in I only painted up the Dinosaur mode, I'd rather keep the paint in good condition than have it potentially get messed up during transformation.

    Hope it came out looking okay, please feel free to let me know if it looks alright in the eyes of the community :D

    Looks alot better like that. Arms look less out of place, and the whole dinomode looks alot less awkward when its not colored weirdly.

    wait, why do the dino mode instead of the robot mode?

    looks like a great start, now it needs some silver.

    Mainly because I have no reference to go off of for the robot mode, all we've seen so far is him in his Dinosaur Mode.

    I can appreciate the work done here but imo it's a bit of polish on a turd. The molds proportions are so terribly off... short of some massive mods there's just no saving this.

    It's weird how just by making it one colour all over it looks less goofy.

    i wish there was a way you could extend the tail so that the dino mode doesnt look misproportionate
