I’ve always loved the Twisted Metal video games and thought that Mr. Grimm and his bike Mr. Grimm were great characters. Death as a biker, awesome! So, when I got a couple of broken Ghost Riders and a ML series seven Flame Cycle it seemed meant to be.
This is my interpretation of the character(s) I liked the Head On Mr. Grimm with the leathers and exposed skull, Mr. Grimm the motorcycle is also similar to the Head On version but I also liked the look of the forward mounted guns on the PS3 Twisted Metal.
I got the skull idea from the TM Black Grimm.
The body is a repainted series seven Ghost Rider that had been beheaded with a movie Ghost Rider head and neck with the flames removed and some repainting. The figure was mostly a repaint aside from removing the flames grafting the head on and relocating the foot peg holes in the feet, I moved them from the toe to behind the toe joint.
Most of the work I did was on Mr. Grimm the motorcycle. First off I got rid of the shield / fairing in the front. I de-flamed the front fender, tank and seat back. I chopped the seat back down to the contour of the back rest. I mounted the cattle skull on the front and the gatling guns and mount I made out of some modified miniguns and ammo boxes. Then I repainted the whole bike with Testors acrylic and the fenders, seat back and tank with Testors stop light red enamel.
I think this makes a far better Mr.(s) Grimm than it did a Ghost Rider. Hope you enjoy it.

I'd be surprised if this doesn't win the Sight Unseen contest. Amazing work.

I don't doubt that Mr. Grimm was inspired by Marvel Comics' Ghost Rider in the first place, so turning a GR toy into him is certainly appropriate; well done!
