Seibertron.com is proud to present a gallery of Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Grimlock. This is our 17th gallery from the Transformers Age of Extinction toy line! Leader Class Grimlock is one of the most anticipated figures from the upcoming toy line which will be officially released on May 17th at brick-and-mortar stores.

While he isn't much bigger in T-Rex mode than his Voyager Class counterpart, but is much taller in robot mode. The new AOE Leader Class toys are similar in size to Ultra Class toys from previous Transformers toy lines. One striking feature of this version of Grimlock is the large amounts of chrome paint that are on this toy, which appears to be a divisive feature amongst many fans.

Check out all of our pics to decide if you'll be picking up Leader Class Grimlock. When you do find him, please make sure you stop by our sightings section to let others know that you found him!

Just to clarify where this toy came from, it was purchased on eBay.

I'm a dinosaur/monster nut, and would consider the beast modes the primary ones, but these Grimlocks do nothing but disappoint me. The other Dinobots look great, but Grimmys are just... blech.

the proportions don't really bother me as much as I thought they would. It's mainly the chrome that bothers me, because I remember how well it worked for all those transmetals figures that lost all color and started flaking. I do however feel big grimlock's bad front proportions could be offset by a thicker, longer tail.

Bot mode is awesome-ish. Alt mode....i've said enough on other threads about it. DOn't need to repeat myself.
With that being said. Liking the pics and loving the new backdrop Seibertron. Looks good.

EDIT: Or is it an old back drop and i'm just noticing it now? Either way...nice gallery.

I've been using the black backdrop for about 2.5 years now in the galleries. Glad you like it!

Whenever I see pictures of the figure in alt mode, for some odd reason, I picture Milo from the Mask.

This is not a good thing!

Seibertron.com is extremely proud to present the newest installations of its world-renowned high-quality Transformers galleries. Today, we bring you the latest incarnation of the proud leader of the Autobots, in the form of Transformers: Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime, and the movieverse debut of an original comics character, Generations Deluxe Drift!

The new AOE Leader Class toys are closer to what we used to call Ultra Class from previous Transformers toy lines such as the Unicron Trilogy. This is the second Leader Class gallery from this line, the first one being Grimlock from just the other day. At first glance in vehicle mode, Optimus seems to be Voyager Class sized in comparison to the Amazon.com exclusive First Edition figure, which is more in step with Leader Classes of past figure lines, just to give you an idea of the scale. However, the robot mode is where he regains quite a bit of that lost size. While still not quite measuring up to the First Edition's stature, this mold makes up for it, in design and features, what it lacks in size.

The three striking features of this version of Optimus are the well placed use of chrome paints that really stand out on him, plus he also just so happens to be a movieverse Leader Class figure with a waist swivel! And to round out the wow factor? Rubber tires!

As for Drift, the blue samurai debuting in the Michael Bay universe, supposedly based on the Decepticon-turned-Autobot character introduced by IDW Publishing (and who showed up in our galleries earlier), we know very little for now, other than its alt-mode being a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and it features multiple swords and traditional samurai looking armour and helm with face mask.

Check out all of our pics to decide if you'll be picking up Leader Class Optimus or Deluxe Drift. When you do find them, please make sure you use our sightings section to let others know, and where!

Or the legs being slightly forward than they currently are. It would increase tail length and decrease torso and neck, making more appealing to me, too. :-?

I don't dislike it as much as I did with the video review, but I'm still not that big a fan of it. If I do get one, it'll be the Voyager at this point.

WOAH!!!! SINCE WHEN ARE OPTIMUS PRIMES WINDOWS F-ING YELLOW?!?!?!?! I was going to pick him up just to have him even with his other issues, but Yellow f-ing windows may kill it for me. Everything before showed clear.

A little disappoited that the new Leader class comes up to about Ultra-ish while still asking for $45. Not cool. [-(

Optimus looks okay, but the shoulder kibble is what gets me. Maybe if I see him on clearance.

I like Drift, but there's two things that bother me: his face and his size. The detailing on his face look oddly proportioned, and compared to Generations Drift, he's definitely a little on the small side. Like I said, I'll think about them if they go on clearance.

Hey, at least it's better than the Impossible Toys Tetrajets. XD

I'm liking Leader Grimlock the more I look at him. The robot mode is fantastic, and I reckon if you moved the dino arms the T-Rex mode would look much better.

What are those on the left? Is that a second pair of swords, or are they sheathes? They're pegged onto his kibble backpack in a bunch of the pictures.

Drift lives up to his reputation. This is the ugliest TF I have ever seen and I collect G2. It. Hurts. My. Eyeballs.

They're a pair of second swords, sorta like how Generations Drift had a pair of smaller swords.

In a couple pics, it shows him holding them so I'm assuming their supposed to be his equivalent of Tanto swords.

Agreed!

I don't mean to sound so negative lately but Drift looks like a bizarre and terrible knockoff of Alternity Megatron or something.

I'm kinda uncertain about Drift... Guess I'll just decide on site to pick him up or not...
