G1 Grimlock cardboard replica. I wanted to make as accurate classic Grimlock model as possible. Body is made of cardboard and It has some plexiglas parts on chest. Crown and eyes in both modes are also plexiglas. Figure is fully transformable into both robot and dino mode. There are 8 LEDs in model used for eyes (blue, not purple. some photographs make it look different), Dino mode cannon and Autobots logo. Batteries are hidden within figure and can be easily replaced. Plexiglas Sword is also highlited with LEDs and base has four white LEDs in the corners (each part has separate power supply). Both Grimlock name and sword can be highlited Red or white (red filters) I used over 80 magnets to make sure Grimlock stays stable in both modes. Grimlock cannon can be hidden within its dino head (held by magnet). The figure is about 40 inches tall which looks impressive compared to standard leader class transformer (in one of the photographs it stands next to Ultimate Bumblebee and ROTF Leader Optimus Prime). Hope you enjoy it:)

Thanks! Getting such a positive feedback from someone who made so many impressive customs means a lot. I hope to see more of your cardboard transformers.

Wow that's seriously impressive, and you even went the extra mile with all the lights. As someone who's also dabbled in making working Transformers from cardboard, I know just how much labor is involved in something like this; great job!
