We finally have a picture with Grimlock's exact scale. 23 cm means he will be slightly taller than the MP Seekers. See the original post on AC Toys. http://www.actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid-345040.html

Glad he's bigger than the seekers at least... though the MP seekers may look a little bigger since they are usually displayed on their stands.

But when they're on stands they look as if they're hovering. They can be made to look as though they're jumping up to get the height advantage.

I'm glad he's taller than SS but I don't think he's worth the money I'm paying for him. I only paid 45 for SS, and they're basically leader class size.

If that's the case, just put Grimlock's arms up in the air and he'll be instantly the same size as them again. Poof-problem solved.

All this bellyaching on Grimlock's size.........Don't buy the frikin' 'bot! But smart money's on that the complainers will buy him........MP more or less. And if Hasbro does sell it's own version sans the chrome and other features, will again bellyache about the lack of chrome or being shortchanged for the price of..........etc etc. When will the complaining stop? This reminds me of a recent lil'formers comic # 136, change Jeph Loeb for MP Grimlock (who by the way hasn't been released yet) and you get my drift....

Just getting the carcass ready for the thread. On a side note I can't wait to get my grubby hands all over this. I am already expecting a fast sell out of this figure with a second production run almost assured.

I know, I just couldn't help a little lighthearted sarcasm. I'm excited about him but, as I've stated in the past, I understand why some are disappointed.

Except that the MP Grimlock package thread is already full of complaints about his size.

The fandom are a "cup's half empty" bunch, eh?

I don't think that's the point. I think the point is how can MP Prime cost $100 (which has a lot more parts content) and this cost $100. I don't care about the size, I just still don't see how they can justify the price.

It's possible they're simply selling it for as much as they think people will buy it for. Judging by the reactions on this forum, they're possibly right.

I definitely see that point but Prime's cost was established 5-6 years ago. I can think of hundreds of things that cost 25-50% less back then versus now. Heck, I could by a Hasbro deluxe at Walmart for 8 bucks before Christmas, now they're 12.

I am very upset he is smaller then MP Prime. I don't mind that the seekers are smaller as they weren't as big as Megs or Prime in the cartoon to begin with, but Grimlock is supposed to be bigger.

They won't get my money unless i can get it cheap. At the current prices i have seen it's too much IMHO.

If he were an inch bigger than Prime and cost 200 dollars, would you buy him?

The orginal g1 Grimlock toy in robot mode was about the size of g1 Inferno/Grapple. They were a bit smaller than the g1 Optimus Prime toy. So I guess the size is just right for Mp Grimlock. Only in the sunbow show Grimlock appeared bigger than Optimus Prime. Optimus Prime was by Grimlock's shoulder. When both were in robot mode standing next to the other. In the season 3 show Grimlock was drawn smaller ,and less intimidating.

I have a solution. All we need is to make Grimmy a pair of elevated shoes. :D
