Scotty P and XYL360 both of you, good advice.

Being international attending the Botcons is indeed a rare event, as such most are spent drooling over the Seibertron news feed.

This year will be my second and that type of info is good to have as well, even if really just a refresher for most.

I got mine quite a while back. I'd check your spam folder and if that doesn't help, I'd try calling them up.

He snuck in RID Grimlock! I'm thrilled to no end by that.

I have to ask, though, what version of Grimlock is that to the right od Animated Grimlock?

I think he's cracking his knuckle or punching his palm rather than doing the finger pyramid, but IDW Grimlock was the one I didn't recognize. Thanks!

There's not many Grimlocks missing. Heck, I'm surprised Shatterd Glass Grimlock isn't up there, though I suppose that might be due to him looking like Classics Grimlock except in different colors.

It belongs to the Lightning Strike Coalition. And the Fall of Cybertron Grimlock figure from Generations actually has that symbol on the toy.

As for Dinobot insignia, I'd rather they bring :DINO: back, but maybe that's just me.

Which Grimlock is gray to the left of AOE Grimlock? Alternators Grimlock is on the bottom left, then who?

Is that Classics in the way back left?

IDW Grimmy doesn't have a toy, right?

His arms seem to have tank treads, so I believe it's War Within Grimlock.

Also, yes that's Classics Grimlock in the back left, and no IDW Grimlock doesn't have a toy.

As has been said, SG Grimlock was probably omitted due to him sharing the same design as Classics Grimlock, but with different colors.

And the artist might have just been going for good guy Grimlocks.
