Transformers WfC: Grimlock by Mecha-Zone Transformers WfC: Grimlock by Mecha-Zone
Concept art for the Nintendo DS version of Transformers: War for Cybertron. This was the fourth character I did for the game. I was contracted to make 10 but only 4 made it all the way to completion.

:star: This version is based on existing Cybertronian designs, before he went to earth and became a Dinobot. DO NOT complain about him being a tank or minivan or whatever he is. It wasn't my call.

Good Job on him, I really like his vehicle mode (it's badass even if it does slightly resemble a blackboard eraser :D)

I think its a very nice synonym for his T-rex mode; kind of an all terrain assault vehicle.

I may be one of the few people that liked the Cybertronian mode for Grimlock. I just liked the idea that he wasn't always a big brawling T-Rex but a big bruising vehicle before whatever it is in game that Shockwave does to him. I wish we could have received the toy for him so it could go on display with all my collection of 'modernized of what I use to have.'

it be possible that they modified
the base design of yours to allow
Grimlock to transform into his T-Rex form?

Yeah, Dave's designs were pretty beloved around the office where I work (I'm an art lead at Vicarious Visions, the company that made the first 3 Transformers games for the DS). His stuff quickly became the favored wallpaper image on the Design lead's PC, and Grimlock, in particular, was favored by the Lead Engineer. We REALLY wanted to put all his designs in, but between budget constraints and Hasbro's mercurial approval process (Grimlock was flat out denied when we started development, for example), it became quite a struggle. Bluestreak was a whisker from going in the game and then got yanked. Hasbro was incredibly hard to nail down on certain characters, with some designs pushed toward the old 80's cartoon, while others went off into far left field (at least one jet, Autobot, I believe, wound up a sneaker looking tank in the console game). While I can't give Dave the okay to post the other designs, I can't exactly stop him, either...*cough* *cough* They are pretty damn sweet.

But what of Grimlock and how he came to be in the DS game and not the High Moon console titles? Well, I can't say for sure, but Dino Grimlock is in TWFC2 (continuity be damned, I guess), and that was likely planned some time ago. We managed to get him and Swoop into the DS version by adhering to the War Within designs, at least for Grimlock's tank ...or minivan...form. We were trying to get Dino Grim into the game as an unlock-able alternate form, but it obviously never came to be. Just to make matters worse, we have an unreleased build where you can play as Dino Grimlock and battle another special unlock-able character that failed to make the final cut, Beast Wars T-Rex Megatron. Yes, it's f*cking fantastic.

Hey ya Bill! Thanks for the amazing insight. It's hard to believe that we worked together almost two years ago. Time really flies. This TF stuff was the last digital concept work I did. Would love to do more but it never seems to work out schedule-wise. I want to do some for my own designs, but free time has been non-existent. Being a freelancer is a tough life. If I lived in Albany, I would be begging for a job ;)

Now THIS is badass. I love all your War For Cybertron designs, but this has to be my favourite. It's a shame that they weren't in the Xbox/PS3 version.

Well, with enough circulation of this on the TF boards around the net, i'm sure a kitbasher of some sort would be more than happy to make a custom of this?
