The G1 mold is out of the question, and as has already been said the Classics Grimlock mold does not really convey G1 Grimlock's general look and transformation, netiher do any of the Beastwars Megatrons or Dinobots.

In your Opinion. There's many fans out there who do enjoy that figure. It may not be the best, but its far from being the crappiest.
The really bad part of the Energon Grimlock and Swoop set was their combination. On their own they are decent enough figures for sets like these.
As a standalone figure, it conveys the G1 transformation, and general aesthetic fairly well and considering the original G1 mold is lost or destroyed, short of making a completely new figure, this is the best figure they could go with. Unless you have a better suggestion? Seriously, what figure would you have liked them to use in this set? You can whine all you want but there was really no other figure that could be used.
You don't like it? , don't buy it. There will be a standalone Voyager Movie Grimlock you can buy instead of this set.
