Got my platinum Grimlock the Cretaceous advancement kit. Bigger sword and shield and a new head sculpt based off the masterpiece figure.

I’d say yes. The comics that are loosely after that canon seem to suggest he did survive (if I recall correctly, its been a while). I didn’t actually watch Gundam growing up, so I’d feel weird doing it.. I wish I did though because those model kits are gorgeous.

I like how brutish the FoC Grimlock looks. Animated just looks too friendly and goofy, I don’t think it could pass as SG very easily. Plus I only have 1 animated and I have 4 FoC. FoC is still easy to come by as well and won’t be hard to replace (I just used the plain old bland plastic american release one). I’m also using the recent Whirl figures weapons which clip perfectly into that figure.. Figured because SG is kind of a polar opposite I’d give this guy ranged weaponry over melee sword and shield. Going to be doing a bit of detailing work on the guns though since I want it to be more than just a black piece of plastic!
tomwaitsforeveryone said: how many custom tfs have you done, and how did you get started doing them?
This is my very first one. I was bummed I couldn’t find anyone willing to part with a 2008 botcon exclusive SG Grimlock (which I’m basing the colour scheme off / which is already based on trypticon).. So I decided to make my own and learn how to custom. Today is my first day doing TF customs and I love it.. Just went online, read a bunch of shit and watched some tutorials. Then with the help of Holly learnt how to use the airbrush and went to town.
