I was sure I'd seen some info hereabouts that gave advice on how to plug teh gaping hole in FOC Grimlock's dino mode chest using a Lego piece, but I can't find the thread at all. Does it ring any bells with anyone? Can anyone point me in the direction of the thread or a link on what to buy and what to do?

Thank you!

Which is what this is based on;

Got several spare if you can't find them. I like this kit to give him wings, personally:

I got the Iron Factory kit for mine, and it looks GREAT! The only real problem was the rifle. The post is a bit too small for Grimmy's fist, so it sits in there loosely. Easy fix with some tape, though.

Cheers, guys.

I'm thinking of getting the new chromed Grimlock from Tesco (the US Target exclusive thing). The grey used on Grimlock looks lighter than previous releases, so I'm not sure the existing Lego pieces or 3rd party kits will match it. If I go for it I may just live with the gap as Grimlock will be in robot mode 99% of the time anyway.

On a related note, does anyone have any interest in buying the very, very shiny and chromey Silver Knight Deluxe Optimus Prime from the set from me? Let me know if you'd be interested... :)
