A little disappointed in grimlock. He has too many distinct features of the animated version. He might work for classics. I want to see him out of the box. I wish somebody would open up the Shockwave already. I want to see if he is going to be a more G1 cartoon accurate purple. Photos of purple always seem to be more bluish that in real life. I want him to be bluish this time. And by the way those cap-bots just suck. A failed attempt to try to appeal to urban collectors. Stick to actual clothes.

Compared to the package artwork, the paint job on Grimlock looks really dull. I hope that's just bad lighting or something. Kinda disappointing looking

Squee, new Super Combo Weapons! :grin:

Ultra Magnus' Corona Glaive may be the best looking, followed by the Leonid Tonfa. Since when do tonfas have blades? Shockwave's Shooting Star Scissors (try saying that 3 times fast) is downright silly. O well.

After playing through FoC for the 3rd time, I can't wait to get Grimmy. Playing as him was the best part of the game, for me. The child side of me is dying to set up a bunch of Decepticon Legion-class figures and make FoC Grimlock trample them Godzilla-style.

My wish has been granted... sort of. Leo Prime's bio:
Leo Prime
Function: Maximal High Commander

Suddenly appearing on present-day Earth after sensing the threat of Unicron, Leo Prime is a Transformer elder who has crossed over from a distant dimension. On his former world, he was a revered high commander known as Great Lio Convoy. In order to avoid a space-time disturbance, he refrains from interfering in the battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron. However, should Unicron awaken once again, he has vowed to use his ancient sword, drawing power from his Energon Matrix, to put a stop to the evil force.

Super Combo Weapon:
Leonid Tonfa

So... Leo Prime is the very same Lio Convoy from after both Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo, having dimension-hopped from the Japanese G1 cartoon continuity into the Japanese Prime continuity.

I'm both impressed and indifferent towards this. I like how he's actually got a backstory and ended up being an established character, but at the same time, I guess I was hoping for an Aligned Continuity incarnation of Lio Convoy instead of the same exact guy having dimension-hopped and gotten a new body. Oh well.

Well, you know who to blame, right? Put short, Leo Prime = Lio Convoy. Joy for the wiki.

DAMN! I didn't think a bio could completely turn me around on a character! I was looking at Blaster and I kept thinking what a waste of money buying that repaint would be, but checking out that bio now makes me kinda want him.

Grimlock is gonna be a buy-on-site for me, so I'm gonna need to keep around an extra $30 on me.

Need it need it need it need it need it need it need it need it need it need it.

QFT! :APPLAUSE: I loved the FOC game too and really enjoyed playing as Grimlock. I especially liked seeing most of his team running around with him as well. When you do this, you must post pictures on here. I share your excitement and cannot wait to get him! I may even buy 2...one to play with and one to display because I know I'll be transforming him a lot!

They didn't use Prime Shockwave's animation model for the Prime Shockwave figure that's the same as the FoC figure.

Why am I not surprised?

Site sponsor Robotkingdom has shared some in-hand images of the highly anticipated Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Voyagers Grimlock and Blaster with Steeljaw via their facebook page. We get to see the figure in both modes, his accessories, and a comparison with Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Class Optimus Prime. We've mirrored their images below.

:shock: HE'S HUUUUUGE! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

And not just compared to Deluxe Optimus, but he's roughly the same height as the Voyager Soundwave mold, which itself is a VERY big Voyager.

I just nerded all over the place. Grimlock looks AMAZING! I'm sure he'll probably be a little hollow, but he's HUGE. AND Hasbro CAN do an LED gimmick right, gasp! Blaster looks great too, but I'm planning on picking up Soundwave.

Did I mention that I'm REALLY excited for Grimlock now? :BOT:

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.

I think the only back kibble he has is gonna be his upper T-Rex body half folded down and set on his back. In the game, he didn't have any of those big shell-like wings the G1 figure had.

It looks like the section with the neck (gold part) and head will collapse into the section with the beast arms, which will then collapse behind the robot head. The beast head obviously ends up -inside- the chest in order to achieve the LED gimmick in robot mode. You can see a pinned hinge in the first picture of his beast mode and in the fourth picture of the robot mode (with the shield front and sword raised) you can see the gold part of the neck collapsed into that silver section where I assume the beast arms are. In proper Grimlock fashion, his legs are his tail and his his arms are his beast legs. :)

I do have to say, I kind of miss the beast kibble wings, they were a nice touch, but I won't lose sleep over it. They certainly did an awesome job with this guy, I love how his hand can hinge down into his arm!

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!!!

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

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

I'm willing to be, with how obsessed Hsbro has been about weapons storage, the sword and shield both clip on underneath.

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).

Grimlock looks awesome :D

I really don't care about the voyager soundwave mold.
I wish there was a deluxe soundwave to be in scale with optimus.

Is there any news on a megatron?

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:

:KREMZEEK: Leo Prime has :MAXIMAL: stickers! :KREMZEEK:

Dammit! Between that and the fact that he looks pretty awesome even without any stickers applied I'm having a real hard time not pre-ordering him now.
