    Grimlock Just wouldn't be complete without his trusty double barreled blaster and energon sword. So here they are!

    Blaster is made using bits from Gundam & Xevos as well as sheet styrene.

    Sword is made using parts from a Happywell Roadbot clear blade, a Bionicle light up sword and styrene tubing. Batteries can easily be accessed. Push button activation. Energon blade glows red.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Thanks PK!

    I thought adding a little flaming erergon dead on a stick would hit the spot for old Grimlock.

    I like the picture of the armour on his back and arms, reminds me of '80s sci-fi stuff like ED-209, cool design work! Only thing I'd say is that maybe he looks a little squat for Grimlock, might have been a better fit for Snarl or Slag? Still, he looks great overall.

    I do believe that sword was customed from a bionocle weapon or two.

    Correct. The part between the blade and the handle that houses the light and batteries is from a Bionicle. The other parts are from a Roadbot, Games Workshop and styrene tubing.

    Yeah, it looks like it came from one of the Inika. I'm surprised that someone managed to paint it without messing up the electronics inside.
