    Alt Grimlock with a paint scheme that matches G1 Trypticon’s which matches the original SG Grimlock. Keeping with the overall theme silver was dry brushed over the bot parts along the edges of the car mode parts to give it a scratched look. Colors used were MM Panzer Grey, Testor’s Turquoise, and competition orange. The gun was based on the guns G1 Trypticon had around his neck.

    Just like the Classics mold, he looks really good with the darker colors.

    I think this is my least favorite of the set, but it still looks great.

    Anything in Tryppy's colors is great in my book!

    Again, love the plate, but "In universe" wouldn't this imply Grimmy has a crush on his rival or something?

    Like the license plate says : Trypn.

    I almost would have wanted you to torture that paint more, make him even more beat up. But I like your take on him. The sword colors, and the bot mode are very good.

    After looking at the bot mode, I see putting a different head on him and you'd have an instant Sixshot custom. Really like these Alts you've redone.

    This was actually the one that got the whole set started for me. The colors are wacky, but in a weired way they actually work.

    Glad I was able fool you.

    Wow, I really dig the bot mode. I wish the SG version would have been a general release, I really dig grimlock in those colors.
