There is no smaller Authentics Grimlock, but Prime and Bee are just OSKOs

Is there a smaller one? I thought Grimlock was only available as a larger figure? The small figures we've seen are Optimus, Bee, Starscream, and Megatron while the large figures are Optimus, Bee, and Grimlock. Am I mistaken?

That Grimlock actually doesn't look bad. I just don't like the head design in robot mode, or beast mode.

No, it's just confusing. I always thought that the figures posted just now were always that size. However, the post here and at TFW2005 suggests that smaller versions are available and that they've been compared to each other?

Has a mistake been made and was it by me?

Not naming the size classes is a good way of dropping the ball. There are as of now two Size Classes for Authentics: 4.5" (compare to RiD Mini-Con Battle Pack Bumblebee), and 7" (compare to Voyager Class). The lineup:

4.5"
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Starscream
Megatron

7"
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Grimlock

Ahh, so there's no mini Grimlock. For a moment before there, I rather hoped that there was going to finally be a decent, Voyager sized Grimlock made by Hasbro.

Silly me...

We did see those box mock ups for "Deluxe" and "Voyager" (or whatever they will call them) so there is a chance that we'll get one, but probably not while PotP Grimlock is still on shelves.

The worst part? Optimus Prime and Bumblebee look so similar in both classes, but the smaller ones have no elbows. That's the only way to tell them apart on images.

Video Review for Transformers Authentics 7" Grimlock and Optimus Prime

Postby william-james88 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 11:00 pm

The latest figures in the Authentics line, the simplified figures featuring the evergreen designs, were spotted recently in the Philipines and Cheatron wasted no time getting a review prepared. You can see him reviewing both the Grimlock and the Optimus Prime from that wave. In case people are confused about which figures these are, especially since the reviewer does not use any of the names used in this article, these are the voyager sized simplistic figures that we have been seeing under various names in different listings. There are smaller 4" figures which have Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream and there is a 7" line that just has Optimus, Bumblebee and Grimlock so far. Below is a review of that 7" Optimus and Grimlock.

There is no actual name for the line on the box/card. Hasbro has labelled it as the Authentics line, while this 7" line also goes by the name Project Storm in its store labeling, which is a name we have seen before in listings, not knowing what it was.

These toys are meant for a younger audience and have even stated appearing at Dollar General locations in the US, so please send us sightings.

For collectors who like these designs and would like figures with more traditional complexity, it seems that will be happening as well.

Without further ado, here is the review!

If you have any news, rumours, or hot new sightings to report which you feel should be front paged,

Does he really need to refer to the instructions so much?

Still want Grimlock, he just seems like a fun figure. Not necessarily good, just fun.

Transformers Authentics "Alpha" Assortment Sighted in Mexico

Postby D-Maximal_Primal » Tue Mar 27, 2018 4:58 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian MaverickPrime, we have news that the Transformers Authentics figures have crossed the ocean and have landed in North America!

He spotted these figures, which are the 3 larger "Alpha" figures, at his local Walmart for $219 MXN, which is around $12 US. The "Alpha" assortment are the 7", roughly voyager sized figures, and they are Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock. These "Alpha" figures have yet to be seen in America, though the "Bravo" 5" figures have been, but it is nice to know that the "Alphas" have crossed the ocean and at least landed in Mexico. With this sighting, we can only hope that this means that the figures are soon to be seen at US retail.

For those who don't remember, these Authentics figures are based on the new "Evergreen" body style Hasbro is using, and they are larger, cheap toys with short and simple transformations.

Let us know what you think of this North American sighting of the Alpha Authentics below, and let us know if you see these guys showing up elsewhere around the world!
