    A voyage class Fall of Cybertron Grimlock.

    GRIMLOCK has being completely repainted to a more video game accurate colors scheme. Details include: head to toe repainted color scheme and a small amount of panel lining. He is slightly weathered throughout to give him that fall of Cybertron feel. Lastly he features LEDs on his dino head, and robot head and chest and each on their own switch. A big changed in his dino head from a lever to a switch to remain on both in robot form or dino mode. The new LEDs does not interfere with transformation

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE.. THANK YOU for everyone support and comments.. and views.. all the best to each one you.

    The differences are pretty subtle, but it's certainly better than the factory version. I wish you had really pushed the dry brushing and physical damage reflected by years spent fighting on Cybertron to a higher degree. He just looks so clean, and the metal looks flat.

    I love what you did there. The paint job allows only the clear parts to light up instead of glowing through the thin plastic.

    As for his "clean" look, I think Grimlock was actually depicted all shiny and unscratched in the game, unlike OP and the other Autobots.

    While the flat gray isn't entirely accurate to the game, I actually prefer it. Too much bling would work against the fig, IMO.

    Wish Hasbro gave the fig a larger shield and longer sword, though.
