You probably remember a thread in the toy forum not long ago, theorizing Grimlock as the next Masterpiece original mold.

While we are unsure about the status of that report, we do have something interesting to share related to it.

Apparently a Custom Masterpiece Slag has been created by a fan named Menchoy.

I won't keep you in suspense any longer. Check out this fantastic custom here. It really is a very creative and cool piece. And it's huge!!!

Check it out and than discuss the utter coolness...

Doesn't really scream "masterpiece" to me. More like "oversize deluxe kitbash".

OH MY GOD.


Can anyone say......gorgeous!?!? I love it! It's customs like these that really make me wish I could do stuff like this. This thing is really a great custom. The creator should think about sending designs & concepts of this to TakaraTomy. Still, this is amazing. All I wanna know is where the huge sword & missile launcher is.

It's not bad, but the torso's a little long and the arms look a little short. Where's his tail?

Saw this over on TFMaster.com months ago.

It's great work.

You should all check out his MP Grimlock bash.

I wouldn't say it's a masterpiece. Looks more like the G1 toy, just more articulated. And lanky. Way to lank and disproportionate to me considered a "masterpiece". Nice figure, but it would have been a lot better if he looked more like the G1 Slag in robot mode.

Proportions are off in places. As epic as this is, it doesn't feel 'Masterpiece' to me...

What he said.

Also, how is it newsworthy?

There are pletny of kitbashes and customs in the kitbash part of the forum, they never get any spotlight, what about that Jin guy's movie redos? Now THOSE are newsworthy.

Good to know that although TFMaster is dead (RIP) the kitbashing community is still making beautiful works of art. Anyone see Masterpiece Warpath? OMG

Slow down with the whinning and complaining.

Some of us didn't know this existed, until now. So thanks for posting.

So the tail ISN'T part of the transformation? I wonder if there is a place to store it? Or if it's a "weapon?"

Looks awesome though.

Posted by Nemesis Maximus on September 3rd, 2007 @ 8:54pm CDT
That is one awesome custom!!! Not only that it is to scale with the way the Dinobots were depicted in the Gen 1 cartoon. A great custom Job indeed!! I would like to see actual masterpieces made of more Dinobots and other transformers, especially one of Galvatron and Cyclonus! Once again awesome custom!!

MP indeed. One of the things I like the most, and believe me this isn't sarcasm, but the unfinished look inside the loxer leg pannels. It realy gives it a rugged forged solid steel look.

Ant the alt mose is amazing, I know a variety of materials where used in making this, and I'd realy love to know about the prosess that went into this extrodinary custom!

Yes I love it THAT much!

Masterpiece Warpath makes that Slag look like a minicon knock-off.

Masterpiece? Big does not mean masterpiece.
Re: Masterpiece Generation One Dinobot Slag Custom (322278)
Posted by Savage on September 3rd, 2007 @ 11:49pm CDT
Little lanky for a Dinobot, but overall it's a great piece. I have to say that I'm glad he's taller than MP Prime. If memory serves me, the G1 Dinobots were always depicted in the cartoon as taller in robot mode than even Prime. This just makes me want MP Grimlock even more.

That looks pretty damn spiffy! A little stretched looking in the torso, but damn, way better than I can do!

I'd love to know how these guys do that! I can barely manage to putty up seam lines with out screwing up!

looks weird in robot mode dino mode is just g one slag i donno if its masterpiece but i guess there is only so much you can do given there aint a whole lotta robot dinosaurs to bash apart

Posted by neliz on September 4th, 2007 @ 1:51am CDT
I like it, there's some good quality in there (better than most bashes) and I'd be happy to see that the quality of any MP dinobot would be even better than this..
Re: Masterpiece Generation One Dinobot Slag Custom (322461)
Posted by Apeface on September 4th, 2007 @ 2:03am CDT
Warpath rocks! As for Slag...that thing is looking a little off kilter. Try building with empty toilet paper rolls next time.

It's alright, I don't like the fact the triceratop's mouth not becoming the mouth piece. Overall, I give it a 7/10.

Nice work, agreed that it's a little too G1 to be a MP. Love the advanced articulation though.
Re: Masterpiece Generation One Dinobot Slag Custom (322716)
Posted by Dead Metal on September 4th, 2007 @ 6:32am CDT
Nah this is just a oversized G1 toy with more articulation, looks good but not MP stile, but it's made out of a MP Megatron that's for sure!

"Nah this is just a oversized G1 toy with more articulation"

Couldn't agree more. A for effort, though.

Re: Masterpiece Generation One Dinobot Slag Custom (322899)
Posted by Auto Bot on September 4th, 2007 @ 9:00am CDT
Only the huge size makes it "Masterpiece". Otherwise, it doesn't look like Masterpiece.

Ok, that's freaking AWESOME. I love that he made him bigger than Prime. The dinobots should be huge! Just think of how big an MP Grimlock would be!

This isnt a masterpiece. It's just an oversized g1 Slag. I dunno, its sorta lacking. Im sure some of the peeps around here could do better.
