Yeah. He isn't that more screen accurate as Takara claimed. I am starting to think that Takara's remold of AoE Leader Prime isn't going to fare much better.

Wow, that dino mode actually looks good with that deco. And the robot mode is sublime.

Where did Takara claim that? I thought this was just supposed to be one of those oddball exclusives they tend to do (like Dark Guard Optimus Prime was in the Transformers: Prime line etc.). Usually when they put out a more show accurate deco of a figure from a main line, it gets released in the main line, not as an exclusive. At least if my recollection is correct, that's generally how they do it. The exclusives are usually just oddball repaints or homages to more obscure stuff/different continuities etc. like with the G1 colored Dinobots they're releasing.

Black Knight Leader Grimlock is a main line release, numbered AD20. He's not an exclusive like Black Knight Scorn and Slug are. :-B

He looks interesting, but the Platinum Leader Grimlock looks just a tad better:

"He has proven difficult to capture and nearly impossible to defeat. When an enemy does get the best of him, it's never for long." Hmmm... Unless you think about how he was imprisoned by Lockdown. Clearly he was defeated, and with a Dinosaur beast mode he'd presumably scanned and reformed into at least 65 million years ago, when dinosaurs were around. "Never for long," unless you count this 65 million year imprisonment. Then there's the "nearly impossible to defeat," although Optimus Prime manages it with one knockdown? :HEADHURTS:

This colour scheme makes no sense to me. It also doesn't make the figure look any better either.

Actually if you noticed in the movie, Grimlock does have a greenish tint coming off his back in dino mode. I am assuming that is what this is trying to interpret. I think I will stick to the chromed one. If anything, I can buy some paint and do it a bit up if I really want to. I'm quite happy with him though.

I think it's supposed to represent the slight metallic patina he has in the movie (although it isn't that extreme in the film).

Grimlock didn't scan a dinosaur. He probably doesn't even have anything to do with Earth's dinosaurs.

Then all those beast modes are either huge coincidences in their resemblance to Earth dinosaurs, or evidence of convergent evolution on another world? I don't buy it. Either way, it's another gap "left open to interpretation" by Bay... What use is the story-driven narrative of a movie when you have to invent the story & make sense of it yourself?

That Optimus is looking better and better. It's actually in-scale, as opposed to the giant Leader Class, and it's more movie-accurate than anything Hasbro's putting out. I just really hope that backpack can fold up...

Left to right:
Premiere Edition Optimus Prime, Lost Age Series LA01 Battle Command Optimus Prime, Movie Advanced Series AD01 Optimus Prime


They are the Japanese counterparts to First Edition Optimus Prime, nothing (there is no Hasbro version of Battle Command OP), and Age of Extinction Generations Leader class Optimus Prime.

Why fold up? Judging by the dimensions, it'll go over Optimus' head if it can be folded up. Either way you are going to be stuck with one of the biggest backpack ever, so why not leave it down and hide the ugliness?

I'd rather have a large, somewhat-integrated backpack than a giant chunk of truck kibble that just hangs loosely from his waist. Plus, it can't be any worse than the First Edition's backpack of doom.
