    Painted as seen but posterized for now :) 

    I borrowed Encline Design's idea of flipping the dino head around for bot mode.

    UPDATE: Gave Grim NEW hands and an interchangeable weapon (which will be painted to have his fiery glow). Almost done anyways.

    Hm. The restrained use of the gold in the midst of all that grey actually works surprisingly well... better than other versions I've seen up till now. Nice. :thumb

    Any chance you can say how you flipped the dinomode heads on the shoulders? BTW love the figure so far.

    Yeah I was looking for something more comic-looking.

    Simple mod, just pop the pin out at the bottom of the back spine where it attaches to Grim's butt and then simply spin the spin 180 degrees and re-pin.

    I assume you could also make it interchangeable for dino/bot modes by cutting into the pin bracket to make the spin pop into place and pop out of place...

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the comments guys :)
