What happens when you add to perfection? You realize what was missing or the universe collapses. Some vehicles need a little more added to their vehicle mode, some, like Rollbar, need a lot. Grimlock doesn't really need anything but damn, he looks badass with it!
The Grimlock is more of an vehicle enhancement sheet rather than a conversion sheet. It takes Grimlock and turns him into... Grimlock. But it takes a solid silver Ford Mustang and turns it into a silver and black Mustang Fastback... at least that's what I think the Ford salesman told me they had in stock. I like to call him Grimlock B. Kickass.
The sticker sheet includes hood, door, and trunk stickers. There are even a few hood pin stickers. I never saw the reason to drill a hole in your hood and put pins to hold the hood down but some people like that. The hood stickers are moderately difficult to apply simply because they leave a small gap of silver around the seam where Grimlock's head sticks through in bot mode, but there are no pattern to align, just solid flat-black. The horizontal stripes on fenders and doors are easy to line up.
The rear also has a few subtle enhancements. The lower portion of the trunk can be changed to solid black. The plate is a true vanity plate. Rather than saying GRMLCK or ASSMAN it states ME BOSS. I suspect this is in reference to the original animated Grimlock. They've also included a sticker for the back glass that is a little self promotion. It also looks good.
What I like best is there are no Autobot faction symbols to be found in vehicle mode.
Overall this is a must-have sticker sheet. The original Alternators Grimlock was spot on character but after they released Wheeljack, who I also reviewed, he seemed a little plain. This just adds so much more. In "The Alternators story So Far" it mentions that Grimlock doesn't like his vehicle body. I like to think that these are enhancements to persuade Grimlock to keep this body form before he is again reformatted into his Classics body, but thats just my own storyline.
