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 thousand 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 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.

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.

This is epic on an immeasurable level! This by far has to be without a doubt, the best render of a movie-verse Grimlock out there today!

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

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)

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.

Totally Awesome!

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

Oh my god.......i love it. THIS is how the Dinobots could be "logical" in the TF movie series.

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.
