Although, given we will soon have MP Dinobot, BW Grimlock is just a simple redeco of him. So a reuse of a mold does have a better chance of appearing first.

I dunno how likely a Grimlock would be, seeing as he was Hasbro only :-?

True. But I don't think they would turn down reusing a mold. Beast Wars doesn't really have as extensive a back catalogue of palette swaps as Generation One. Some of them will only be a one to two use mold, so I doubt the opportunity would be passed up. Likewise I foresee Laserbeak and possibly Fractyl being releases after Terrorsaur.

Airazor is probably the only character I can think of, that didn't have any redecos at all :???:

Well, there IS a Shattered Glass MP-10, G2 Sideswipe, G2 Bee, MP-8X (comic) Grimlock. They had no significance to Takara, so you never know.

I'm in love.

And RE: the backpack conversation.

His backpack is the sides of the dino AND the sternum. The original toy had three flaps: two sides and the chest, which hung down on the back kind of out of sight. They ditched that for the show and significantly shrank the wings, so they've had to do a lot of folding and compressing to match that here. Why is this a surprise?

I'm a bit confused as to why we even talked about given the difference between the toy and the animation model...

If they do an MP Waspinator, they have to have his limbs be ball-jointed. That way, we can replicate his usual state in the show. :lol:
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Wow, this guy is looking awesome. It makes me hopeful for some Masterpiece Armada figures in the future, given how much they are nailing the aesthetics!

Indeed. Perhaps his extras should include a couple miniatures of his more choice "junk pile" moments ala...

It's a shame there seems to be no articulation in the T-Rex arms though...

Speaking of which: how big are they in relation to fellow T-Rex Grimlock's?

They should be around the same size, right? Grimlock has pretty normal sized T-rex arms, maybe slightly longer. Both Masterpiece figures should be about the same size, just a tiny bit shorter than MP-10.
