This is shocking. Now, he controls the rare...Black Ion.

Also, I'm glad you remembered the Fossil Fighters Mohawk.

Longsword, people have thought it was an odd choice. I just wanted to shed some light on a new type of Grimlock.

Nick. I just soiled myself from the awesomeness!!! The helmet looks awesome! The Odachi, the vein tatoos, the everything. Perfect representation of The Autobot Second In Command.

A Katana? Really?

Grimlock doesn't peg me as the silent swordsman. In fact, that's the exact opposite of what he is!

:iconxrnophobicmobian:
XrnophobicMobian Featured By Owner Edited Oct 20, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
He's smarter and it's an Odachi actually, a longsword.

Also, he's not silent, he still makes warcries and growls.

I know but even if he is intelligent, it's just hard to see him using a longsword. Don't you think it kind of clashes with the fact that he has a big, powerful T-Rex as an alternate mode (which is meant to reflect on how Grimlock often relies on brute force when fighting)?

Silent Swordsman is just an expression, it just describes a warrior who attacks both swiftly and precisely (they can be silent, but that really isn't a defining factor).

I kinda just wanted a diffrent type of Grimlock, one who is a strategist.

He can be swift, but when he's piseed he's slow and makes 'Cons fear him before he cleaves them in half. On the swift aspect, a T-Rex could be very fast, so I implemented that.

I'm not saying there's nothing wrong with doing that, it's just that it's very difficult to do given his character, not to mention the raw power of his alternate mode.

Grimlock is in many aspects a barbarian or a Berserker, he just charges relies on sheer brute force to defeat his enemies. The fact that he turns into a powerful predator like Tyrannosaurus Rex further reflects that. Also, T-Rex were not that fast. It is believed that they could only reach top speeds of 15-20 mph. They were better known for their strength and raw power (like having a bite that could crush a car).

So it is very hard to give strategic brains to someone whose first instinct is to just rush in and destroy everything. I'm not trying to sound hurtful when I say this, but your reimagining of Grimlock is so different, you'd honestly be better off just making him an entirely separate character (just switch the kind of Dinosaur he'd turn into).

Again, this is just giving you my opinion, this is still your creation you do whatever you want with it.

Ok. I just you were telling me it was bad. If you are, it's your opinion.

I'm not at all saying the character itself is bad. It's just it's hard to see it as Grimlock.

Can I ask: Was your intent in making Grimlock smarter was to make a powerful warrior with both brawn and brains?

Yes, that was my intention.
