He is a dual-homage to both Dinobot Magma-Type from Transformers: Super Link (Japanese Energon) in Dino mode and Activators Fireblast Grimlock from Transformers Animated in Robot Mode (and name).

Im skipping this one. They really should have gone for the blue G2 repaint instead. It would have sold better. Now they'll probably come out with Zenith Forge and Iron Factory sets in red to make him look halfway decent.

Highly unlikely I'll get this one. I don't think I'd want another Grimlock on my shelf as it wort of waters down the awesomeness of the character.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

When I get mine, Dinobot Magma Type will ride it, not Optimus.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!
