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 many of us here on Seibertron.com, Simone watched the Transformers Live Movies directed by Michael Bay. After seeing the movies, he 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. See Grimlock in all of it's glory 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's just how I had thought his backstory could be!

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.

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

There won't be a toy because this is just some pretty wicked fan-art (sadly)

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.

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.

But how does the top half of his head become his feet, while the jaw becomes the chest? LOL!
