Well, to start off, I gotta say this was one of the most challenging projects I've embarked upon to date.

This is my first (of many) collaborations with another artist. I was lucky enough to have JAF (of sector70) add incredible articulation to *good* condition Dinobots I picked up across the boards and on ebay.

You'll find larger and more images of these guys, including group shots later this week on my website (click my banner)

The golden color was a challenge to hit, but I am happy with the overall palette. I created duplicate sets of the stickers on illustrator and created water slide decals, which you can see throughout the custom(s)

Thanks to JAF and the fan who commissioned the project. Definitely gonna revisit this project one day and take it to the ultimate level be having them combine ;)

Anyway, Here's Grimlock! (this is gallery 1 of 5)

Are those Cyclonus legs?

I hope it comes with the poo.

Really nice, I wish the toys were that lovingly articulated back in the 80's. Grimlock was the only Dinobot I owned, and I don't know why, other than him being the leader that I got him. The other Dinobot toys were far more interesting. Snarl especially.

I believe they came from Energon Cyclonus, yeah. JAF from Sector70 did the articulation.

And thanks
