    As promise, here is the long waited Animated Grimlock that I have been preparing for months .
    Animated Grimlock is being prepared from a very fine detailing air brushing process. From start till finished, every stages are patiently airbrush with layers of high quality hobby lacquer paint to achieve the best effect as intended. A total of more than 35 hours is being devoted to complete this project.

    Thanks for viewing and do give your precious comment !

    Oh, my. That is some smooth airbrushing work right there.
    Beautiful!

    Question- did the arms lose the sliding mechanism, or would there be too much scratching?

    Hi Thanks Yaujta for your appreciation. No the arms didn't lose the sliding mechanism, The figure is being primed and coated with another high quality black lacquer paint before shading process. And its very durable in terms of paint wear off due to the prime coat.

    I think the most impressive part is that there is not a single scratch mark anywhere on it due to rub or transformation. The finish is flawless.

    Don't the long gangly-ass black parts of the arms slide into the shoulders as to not look awful in robot mode?
    Aside from that, it looks totally beautiful.

    Wow, your work is always stunning, but these colors just POP! Is this the laquer system from model master? What type of primer did you use? Simply beautiful!

    I see Yaujta has mentioned this too so I think either you aren't getting what we are trying to tell you or the arms no longer work right on your figure for some reason. There is definitely nothing special or cool about the arms being mistransformed.

    The black part of the arms slide up into the shoulders as part of his transformation.
    In your pics the arms are in T-rex legs mode.

    I see this thread and gallery is basically an ebay sale advertisement, going by your most recent post with nothing but the big "on ebay" banner.
    It'd likely sell better if you retook pics with the arms not transformed wrong.
    That's what I'm trying to tell ya.

    I use Mr hobby 1500 primer , so it will create a smooth surface when u apply the 2nd coat. Of cos throughout you need to understand the paint texture in order to achieve the best result, hope this help in your hobby ;) 

    Thanks for your advice. As for your concern about the black part of the arms slide up into the shoulders as part of his transformation, I have examine the pic and it shows ok to me as I compared to toy review. Its just that the pivot part that I didn't present it properly due to some angle. But anyway the transformation is correct .

    Well it's your figure and your sale, but just to show I'm not talking out my butt...
    Its not just the angle of your pics. :/

    Cool man. Yeah, I didn't want people wondering if your figure after the work you did no longer transformed right. The arms are too long and look weird without that part done. Glad you found what I meant, and happy to help. :)

    Thanks bro appreciated !

    BTW this is this another rendition which Crefigz created during 2007. Which I was amaze by how he did to this animated figure . I didn't took much notice that he didn't insert the arm in so I followed blindly, good catch bro !

    I was wondering what was off. Gosh it's been 7 years since I sold mine. Yeah that'd put me off buying if I were in the market for customs. But it is a nice paint job.
