I don't have a problem with the Grimlock, looks pretty good to me but then again I'm not a huge Grimlock fan. However I am a Scourge fan. I was resistant to the stealth bomber mode a few years ago but I have to admit it grew on me.
I understand the need to reuse molds from a cost perspective, really I do. But that being said I'm having a really hard time accepting the Scourge mold as Ratbat. And one gets the impression that this was planned that way from the beginning (obviously, given the "instructions" error).
Of course it was planned. Its sort of an in-joke now with Scourge and Ratbat.
Back in the Universe line we got this Ratbat out of Cybertron Sideways.
It was subsequently repainted as Scourge for the 2009 Botcon Set.
So of course the new Scourge mold is going to be used for Ratbat.
Also this is supposed to be Senator Ratbat in the comics, who had a robot mode before becoming Soundwave's scout as opposed to just Cassette Ratbat.
With that said, he looks awesome. I think the mold works pefectly for Ratbat.
And the colors are fantastic.
I kind of like Grimlock too, but I think the Platinum Series Grimlock is going to be the better and cheaper choice now.
