    I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking there are quite a few BotBots that would work pretty well as G1 repaints. After taking a bit of a break after my last BotBots custom, I decided to finally repaint the BotBot Javasaurus Rex with a G1 Grimlock colour scheme - something I've wanted to do since first laying eyes on them. Clever(ish) coffee-themed names abound so couldn't decide between Grindlock and Grimpot.

    Mostly a repaint but did end up doing a tiny amount of filing on some parts just to strip paint off and give the smallest Autobot insignia from Toyhax I had kicking around, a space to lay.

    And a bit of fun playing with forced perspectives... and a possible hint at another idea I might do soon

    Excellent. I don't know much about the more recent releases of botbots, but it would be cool to see the rest of the Dinos.
