I'm loving that Voyager Blaster. I general I'm not a fan of Blaster asa Soundwave repaint/remold but it actually works pretty well with this mold.

Good point, his feet are insubstantially hollow and he seems to have no foot articualtion.

Buying. These two are SO pre-ordered.

And when Grimy sells a TON maybe Hastak will finally accept that the Dinos are popular, will sell and they should get off their lazy asses and make the other four just to shut me up....and make everyone else very happy.

Hello Grimlock! COME TO PAPA, YOU LIL DINO YOU! I waaaaaant. This is perhaps the best reveal of SDCC so far. The only question is, do I put him on the classics shelf or WFC/FoC shelf? He looks way cool but I need one Grimlock per shelf and I have a feeling the classics one will look funny with FoC toys. Although, next to the FoC deluxes, the classics version will look huge. :HEADHURTS:

Blaster: At first I was a bit peeved he's just a remold, but it's a pretty good remold. I appreciate that they made an effort to have his gun look like it should, and the chest piece is rather cool. I'm still torn on getting Soundwave because I have the WFC deluxe, but I'll definitely pick up Blaster. 3 versions of this mold already though? That's a bit excessive...

Starscream: Buy.

Ultra Magnus: Too blue, but buy.

Insectiwhatever: Unsure, maybe buy.

Sideswipe: Real cool bro. Better than Jazz. Might try to get another on clearance and do some part-swapping to jazz-up Jazz a little. He could use a black hip piece.

Fireflight/whateverthey'recallinghimnow: Probably buy but I'll wait for a sale because it's a repaint.


Crap. It's going to be an expensive year. Assuming we actually see any of these figures here, that is. Still haven't seen PRiD Wave 2... :BANG_HEAD:

But dang, SDCC is making me so happy. There's a lot to look forward to. :D

I think its simple because they cannot do 2 dozen repaints, really sad though a new Swoop or Slag would be great.

I'm still in awe at that Grimlock. I've said it a few times but I believe it to be true, if Hasbro don't make the other 4 Dinobots, they only have themselves to blame when a third party company makes them. If we have Grimlock, most fans will want the rest of the team.

if they just ship Grimlock, Blaster and the Sound-brothers in a case, it'd make my ordering easier. :P Am still happy with my MP Grim, but this one seems better scaled in robot mode at least, and the dino mode is pretty awesome. Blaster is a good retool/repaint of the decent looking Soundwave and I like all the little robobabies they have.

Im more interested in the Since MP Grimlock is i scale for classics, WFC Grimlock would be a downgrade. Ill still buy it though, just wont make it to the classics shelf with Blaster.

I was just about to order a device label Blaster for like 120.00 and then I see this. Think I'll be deleting the device label off my watch list and try to snag on of these, thank the fates I saw this first.
I like his look. I like how he doesnt have a magician's cape on (like the usb one.) and at least he comes with a gun , actually thats a big plus these days. I wonder will the Ejector and Rewinder fit in his hands.
Also, dumb question, but since he's voyager, does that mean he'll be Vector Prime size or maybe more like Prime Bulkhead? If he's too big it might look weird next to Drift, Perceptor etc. But if he's a little like Protector to City Commander size thatd be cool.
Anyway, Im excited, this is the only one from the FoC line Im interested in. My wrists are too old for video games so probably skipping the game this time, but I'm lovin that Blaster. The little shoulder things look like they could be folded back behind his shoulders? Thatd be cool.
Anywayz Im glad I saw this while I was window shopping, that makes it easier to pick up a magnus for my CC armor that came today and just wait for this release.
Look out and shout, ow! :BOT:

This is a great looking Grimlock, and I'm very glad he's voyager size. I'm not thrilled with Blaster, but at least it'll take advantage of the cassette gimmick Soundwave is pimping.

Grimlock's dino mode is dino-mite. I love it. His robot mode is amzing as well. I was really hoping they would make a grimlock based on foc and I'm glad they decided to go voyager size. I was worried that it may come out as a deluxe size, nice one hasbro.
On a side note, his head is game accurate, but I think classics grimlock's head looks more like the g1 cartoon. I may try for a head swap if it fits.

Is that silver dry-brushing I see on Grimlock's T-Rex head?

Anyways, he's bought on sight.

I'm curious about Soundwave and Blaster, though. Can they still pull off that fan-inspired boombox mode in this new voyager mold?
