Transtopia Masterclass - Transformers Movie Grimlock

Postby Blurrz » Sat Feb 06, 2010 11:30 pm

Motto: "The Wreckers. Weird brain bullets. Impossible odds... It doesn't get much better than this."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Transformers. What does the word mean to you? It's a passion. It's a dedication. It's a hobby. It's what you come to this website for. Ever since it's insertion in 1984, it's a franchise that has effectively been a part of our daily lives - it's a part of who we are. Among the hundreds of thousands Transformers fans, there are few and far between that can say Transformers has affected their interests, even so far as their job and lifestyle.

Simone Maganuco, also known as Seibertron.com member Yellow Camaro is one of the few who can fit the description above. After becoming a Dinobot fan at the age of 4, Transformers helped initiate his curiosity in meat eating Dinosaurs. 27 years later, Simone is a Vertebrate Palaeontologist. He's able to put his interest of Transformers and his job together.

Now what does this mean for us?

Like all of us here on Seibertron.com, we've watched the Transformers Live Movies directed by Michael Bay. After seeing the movies, Simone was inspired to get a movie version of Grimlock done. Together with 3D Graphic Artist Sergio Rocco, they've done just that. Instead of the usual fleshed out robotic Grimlock that we're used to seeing, Simone thought it would be better if Movieverse Grimlock was based off a skeleton. Now together, they're here to show us their results. When the staff of Seibertron.com first saw the images, we were so mind blown that we just had to share this with everyone. Let's just say that this version of Grimlock would look mighty fine in Transformers 3. Check it out below.

Sergio Rocco's website can be found here. If you have any Transformers related work, whether it be customized toys, pictures, or the occasional fan-fiction, feel free to post it in the Transtopia Forums!

That design is beyond awesome, and I love the bio, as well. I never thought of Grimlock or the other Dinobots as mechanical skeletons. Very interesting idea for the movieverse, IMO.

One word: BEAST!

That is some beautiful (fan?)art. It looks kinda technoganic-esque. Like if someone made a live-action Beast Machines, or something.

In addition to G1 Grimlock influences, I'm also seeing some slight resemblances to the Dino knight/Dinosoldier Dino Tyranno from Dinozaurs/Dinozone.

Very nicely done, I'm loving the way the weapon is stored.

Also: I like how it kinda looks like those Dremora from Oblivion.

And this is precisely why the Dinobots wouldn't work in the Bayverse.

Don't get me wrong, it's an impressive work, but it just doesn't feel like a Dinobot (especially Grimlock), to me.

I'm just finding myself unimpressed by it on a movie level. As a fan work? AWESOME.

Why can't Bay get THESE two guys to work for his design team? 8) 8) 8)

Only thing is, I'd hate to see this thing manufactured into an action figure, as it'd almost surely look sub-par to the movie CG.

Very sweet artwork! I was in love with it the moment I set my eyes on it. Grimlock is my favorite transformer and I love this rendition of him. I takes the G1 influnce, Beast Wars, and the movie concept and blends them into smooth awesomeness! If there ever was a figure, I'd search high and low for a few!

Thank you for making me have a massive geekgasm in class...my professor who is a TF fan also had one when he looked at my computer, we don't get any homework because of this pic.

Also if anyone has the addresses of those responsible for this art i need it so I can personally shake their hands.

To the makers of this Grimlock artwork we the fans salute you.

Due to his rather unique birth, Grimlock has a slow but endearing speech pattern, which can easily make you forget he's Godzilla with style. And weapons.

thank you everybody! I am so happy, and touched too. I'll never forget this moment!
I would like to personally thank everyone for your enthusiastic comments. And I want to thank all the Seibertron people for doing what you do and make this fansite so great. To me, this fansite is not a simply fansite, is a friend! So it is fantastic to share our work with you.
I am going to trace Sergio, he must know that we are on-line!
Thanks again, I'll come back soon!

i agree with both staements i tryied to imagine them like this it couldnt fit with then dinos universal studios maybe fan art superb but in the movie it says to me having the powerrangers megazord intertwine with the transfromers movie thats what this reminds me of or noght at the museum trex comes to life one or the other.

im glad bay doesnt want his movies to be more g1 than his version only if was more to the g1 series we might have had the dinobots in there and wheelie would be talking rhime it would be more cartoon than realsim from this trilogy but who knows maybe may add them as differn alterante modes shown transformers war within grimlock tank, swoop some type of jet
