Weapon: Electro-Sword
Looking at this list kinda makes me regret selling my MP Grimlock. Wish they'd come out with a similar figure. Maybe the Earthrise line will continue that MP on a budget and we'll get a new Grimlock

Well thought out list. Kinda makes me want to get that Cyberverse Grimmy. Even if I don't have any place for him and there's other stuff I want too.

Studio Grimmy is great. I have an oversized KO of him and love him. I'm not normally a movie guy, but I do like the movie's take on just about all the animal formers. It really works.

This list reminds me, my very next purchase needs to be MP-08X. I've been meaning to get him for years and something always happens.

I think MP-08X is just plain doofy, and for the same reason so is Pretender Jazz's inner robot :P

I think the main thing that sets him apart - the replacement of his black plastic with dark blue - looks really silly. I get that it's a reference to the comics, but the dark blue in the comics is just the standard comic thing of substituting dark blue for black because of inking limitations! :lol: It happened to EVERYBODY with black bits! What's next, dark blue versions of Skywarp, Rumble, Ravage, and the condors?

Yes, please.

I like the blue. It goes better with the yellow, the red, and even the gray.

Eh, I think the black works just fine in Grimlock's case, particularly when he has the blue optics from the cartoon (Speaking of, there's a feature more MPs need: Swapable eye colors).

You know who definitely does look better with his black replaced, though? Slag.
Take a look at the Diaclone version:
Image
And the Canadian red variant. Granted, on that one he's further helped by having some paint applied to the rest of his face, but even without that it'd be an improvement.

The MP Grimlock really is the best the figure ever could be. It’s beautiful in its details, has some great, unobtrusive gimmicks. It’s a standout among among a lot great figures through the years.

Agreed, 100%. I wouldn't be against another try at him, but I doubt it would be much of an improvement.

Anyway, let me deviate sort of from the actual figure list, and ask you guys this: which Grimlock do you think has the best-looking face/head?

For me it's definitely the MP. He was even on my list of the best head sculpts of all time.

This guy's is probably the best Grimlock head! :-D ;)

Kidding aside... Robot mode, I'd say a toss-up between MP-8 and Animated. Animated's is just plain cool, and MP-8 has clear-plastic G1 cartoon accurate optics as well as some paint on the faceplate.

Dino mode: Animated, hands-down. He looks suitably powerful and menacing while also managing to out-smug Beast Wars Megatron.

Ah, yes, I did not specify. :lol:

I think FoC Grimlock has the best head/face as well. Dino mode? Probably the MP. To me, Animated Grimmy looked kinda doofy, to quote Zelda.

For me the best dino Grimlock head is the original. But for bot mode I'm very partial to Classics/Henkei Grimlock's sculpt.

Though I also like the expressiveness of Energon Grimlock's head, it's the best thing about the figure (Mega-Dinobot's head is pretty great as well)

He wasn't on any list and hasn't even been mentioned, but I'm gonna give a shout out to the Titanium War Within Grimlock. He has a simple transformation, but his face and head were pretty good, even surviving into the IDW version, since Furman started it.

I can't help but laugh at the phrase "Furman started it" :lol:

Think of how many things that can be defensively claimed as a jusitfication/excuse for.

"Why's everybody talking about vast predatory birds?" "Furman started it!"

I wasn't really meaning it as an excuse, there's nothing wrong with War Within or the early IDW. Grimlock looked good in War Within and had a great character. And his face was in Maximum Dinobots, even if his body had changed (ironically resembling the Animated body somewhat).

Didn't mean to imply you were, sorry. I'm just amused by the wording making it sound like one, and by how many things it could be used for. Read the last line of my previous post for an example.
