How to make your Voyager AOE Grimlock (more) awesome in 2 easy steps!

I really love voyager AOE Grimlock however, the way HasTak did his weapon bugged the crap out of me. So I decided to do something about it! The two things I wanted to fix were how he holds it in Bot mode, and how the weapon is stored in alt mode. (I apologize for the thumbnails. I did not know that imageshack started charging to link to full size pics until after I uploaded them :michaelbay: . Here is a link to the pics on imgur: http://imgur.com/a/vG2eO)

First I dremeled his hands Starting at the thumb and cutting forward.

Image

Then I shaved the mace handle to even it out and allow it to fit in the hand. After some gentle fiddling, I was able to go from this:

to this:

Image

Alt mode weapon storage is even easier. First take the head of the mace and attach it to the tail as normal. Now for the shaft, if you look on the underside of old Grim in alt mode there are some indents just below the knees.

Image

The ridges near the bottom of the mace perfectly fit in there. Cover the other end of the shaft with the chest parts, and you are done!

Image

You go from this:

Image

To this:

Image

The shaft of the mace does stick out the front a bit, but from most angles you can't see it, and it help fill in his chest a bit. I also disabled the chomp gimmick, as I like the option to close his mouth.

There you go, I hope this adds some enjoyment to your Grimlock. As I said earlier I love this toy, and now that I fixed the only real problem I had with it, I love it even more!
