    So for this version I went for a comic-ish G1 kinda look. In the process I also gave Grimmy a new hook weapon instead of that club/sword thing he came with. I took 'that' and cut it up and added on some thigh armor for him because his legs look very skinny at the top. He is not transformable because I just don't like the dino mode and painting it would've been a massive drag for me.

    Lots of edge-wear and flat colors used along with some panel line washes.

    See his HD video HERE.

    You know? I may just say "Fuck it" and get this figure (on sale only) and just paint him up and non transformable. The dino mode looks like crap and I hate how the tail has to come off for bot mode. This looks great!

    Thanks for commenting guys, I appreciate the feedback!

    Yeah man, dino mode is kind of lacking in my opinion but bot mode is really quite impressive. Get it and paint it!

    Thanks guys :)

    Fantastic job, this makes me want to get the figure now! Also IMO, what you did is well worth the sacrifice of transformation!

    That's pretty bad ass, bud. Great work, and I love the weathering details you put on him.

    That actually looks very cool. I'm liking how these Dinobots look in G1 colors.
