Grimlock , G1 Dinobot (V2)
...another classic G1 Dinobot...
About this creation
As most of you know by now I am not a big fan of what Michael Bay has done to the Dinobots for TF4 or the Transformers franchise in general. So here is an upgrade to my G1 Dinobot Grimlock so that he will be in scale with my recent Slag MOC. The transformation is very close to its G1 original toy counterpart. This model is more dynamic and articulated than the original Hasbro offering and is a sleeker, lighter MOC than my offering from 5 years ago. Enjoy the nostalgic trip back to the 80s when Dinobots actually looked like dinobots!

Watch the video Review on Youtube for more insight into this model and how it transforms!

I really admire what you've done here with the transformation, but some of the sculpting of the detail seems a little odd, compared to the source material. His dino head feels like it needs more of a central ridge along the nose, so it doesn't feel so flat -- and the angles of his chest seem odd. But those are nitpicks on an otherwise really wonderful design.

I kinda suspected it would bounce back, cuz that's my school assigned email, and they block EVERYTHING when they give it to you. I need a new gmail for my youtube, so I should get a new gmail soon, then try to sign up using that. Thnx!

I've sorta learned to live with bayformer designs. Not a fan, but I like to think I can be open to them. After all, Scorn and Strafe look pretty cool, and I like the sorta Knight theme that at least Scorn and Slug have. As for the MOC, I dig it, and I feel it's the best one can do while keeping in the realm of actual physics. Mostly with the tail. Still looks a little fat, but I guess that's inevitable. Could be worse. Could Be FOC Grimlock's Dino Mode.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! I agree: not really diggin what Bay has done with the Dinos in the new movie. This, however, is awesome! I love that you packed in every G1 detail down to the oddly colored bits on the lower legs. Great improvement from V1!

u know how much I just luv Bayformers.... I wouldn't hold your breath. LOL!
Quoting Chris Phipson Sorry I've been out of the loop for a couple of weeks. Between vacation time, family stuff that I had to travel for and then brickworld... Since May 1st I've been a ghost around here. Anyway, LOVE THIS! I've been catching up on the old G1 cartoons recently so this is perfect timing! I'm really looking forward to a possible movie version of this from you. ~ Chris.

..for me you can't call them transformers if they don't transform --- Hello Kre-O LOL Glad I could inspire you!
Quoting Paddy Bricksplitter What amazes me about your creations is the fact they can transform. Your stuff is why I just started building.

that would be nice... there are always repaints - which I have already seen online don't know if they were exclusives or fan repainted dinobots http://www.cinematoday.jp/gallery/E0004979/001.jpg.html
Quoting Starscream Soundwave True, but they could've at least had a vaguely similar colour scheme!

not the first like ... that's always been that way - some people maniopulate the ratings to knock you off the homepage - email me if you want an explanation - enough clone kiddies already know how so I am not going to write it here boyzwiththemosttoyz@gmail.com
Quoting clayton Marchetti Theres definitely something wrong with the first like , but every once and a while I'll have a problem with one elsewhere . I did with one of yours not to long ago as a matter of fact. If I'm the first to comment I always like it first then I'll rate it and write the comment. That seems to help. Going to change rating hardly ever works. It's very frustrating . What's bumping mean btw?

As a movie i think TF4 will be decent, but claiming TF4 as part of the transformers universe? i think not! anyway, you have once again cranked out another superb creation! (still waiting for g1 jetfire though XD)

I never understood why dinosaurs ,don't get me wrong there awesome! But I thought they were robots in disguise cars,trucks, planes and ships but Dino's kinda sticks out ha ha ha. This version looks totally Epic! Excellent work Chris

bayformers never look like there G1 counterparts sadly....
Quoting Starscream Soundwave Superb work Chris. Brilliantly captured and both modes look superb. Is the Tyrannosaurus in TF4 definitely supposed to be Grimlock? Only from what I remember from seeing the trailer it didn't really look anything like him at all. Anyway, excellent build!

Is there a glitch with the like system or is someone deliberately bumping all my creations over the last 6 weeks?

might just be the camera angle - his head looks ginormous but it isn't
Quoting Commander Spencer It's pretty sweet, though I have an issue about the dino mode legs. They look fine as arms in robot mode, but they just look too thin in dino mode.
