First of All, finally having a Grimlock that looks like he could stomp Prime.....AWESOME. Second, yea he has back kibble, so so does the original and even the Masterpiece, to me its a bit of G1 Homage....Unlike Voyager Soundwave and Blaster who are gonna have Huge poles coming out their back if the Cassettes are in their chests.

So Little to say, $30 is staying in my pocket 24/7 until I find this beast and make him MINE!!!

Here's Grimlock from the back.


Forgot about that one, thanks!
I'll wait for a review or two, but I'm losing my 'squeee' for this figure. :(

Smart and simple way they dealt with the light bar on Red Alert.

Megatron Wolf wrote:im afraid of what grimlock is going to cost now, hes twice the size of a deluxe & has lights. Id be very surprised if he stays $20. But the first thing is finding him, there still hasnt been any FoC figures in any of the stores here. Been keeping my eye out for Soundwave and there arent even spots for them.


Hasbro doesn't do multiple price points within a class, if it's Voyager class it will be Voyager class pricing. All the Prime Voyagers have lights and they haven't been any more expensive than standard Voyagers, at least in Canada. I know in the US TF prices have been creeping up in general but the point is Grimlock won't be any more expensive than any other current Voyager.

Grimlock looks totally badass. Finally a light-up gimmick done right and a great aesthetic. The gappy dino mode isn't perfect but it's still pretty decent.

Blaster isn't quite as nice as the Takara version but still nice enough. And Steeljaw got a remold! Sweet!

Finally we're getting some awesome FoC figures. I have no idea why Hasbro decided to release the crappy ones first. Wave 3 Deluxes and the Voyagers look so much better than the first 2 waves of Deluxes.

Grimlock looks less interesting...but not enough to make me change my mind about buying him.

Was never interested in Blaster...or the Voyager Soundwave mold period.

- Fat tail
- Nonexistant dino-belly
- Dull robot mode
- Hands and thighs are 'supposed' to be black, while the hips are 'supposed' to be red

+ Light-up gimmick
+ Apparent size
+ Lightning Strike Whatever Insignia
+ It's Grimlock

Eh, I think I'll wait for a G2 repaint.

I'm wondering if the shield clips in where the open stomach area is on Grimmy?

He looks a little dull colored with no bright paint apps, but I have a feeling re-prolables could do something really sweet for him....

I'm very excited for this figure...please, please let there be more FOC dinos in the future!!!

I don't know if it's how Hasbro prices them or just retailer choice, but if you go into any retail store, you'll see DOTM, Prime, and FoC Deluxes at two or three different price points.

Let's add "within the same line" to the original quote, and call the whole thing off. >:oP

Really though, between lines, the set prices of Size Classes can vary a dollar or two, but within the same line, there's no such thing. The one exception would have to be Prime Bumblebee, who shelfwarmed or was overstocked so badly, that Toys 'R Us of all places put $5 stickers on the packaging.

2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Maybe I misunderstood. I thought we were talking about whether or not the FoC Voyagers might be at a different price point than Prime Voyagers, which I think is possible. But if you're talking about FoC Blaster vs FoC Grimlock, then I agree that it's unlikely they would have different price points.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I guess I should know I need to be very specific with my wording. :P

The guy I was responding to made it sound like he's concerned Grimlock will be more expensive than his wavemates or other FoC Voyagers because of the size and light-up features, so I was responding to that.

I have to agree on the plus points. Especially the LSC symbol. :x
As I said, I'll wait for more pictures or a video.


It would be nice for the weapons to tuck in somewhere, given all the hollowness of the mold.
Doesn't looki like it will happen, though.


EDIT: Looked at it again.
He doesn't have ball jointed hips!
But, on he downside, the transformation looks waaaaay too easy.

blaster is fine but grimlock.
SHESH,
his chest is a bit too big while his sword and shield are too small(i'll give ya that my complaints on the weapons are rather nitpick-ish), but his dino mode just kills it.
the tail looks REALLY wierd, the whole thing looks more like the small dinosaur given as an accessory for Xboxlive or a chibi and his crotch in dino mode is hallow(and its really noticable is u were to try to make him stand as erect as he does in the game).

Breaking news! There were Deluxe Soundwaves and Megatrons in the original WFC line back in 2010! :KREMZEEK:

And considering you didn't know about them, I'm assuming didn't know about these fellas either:
