We have new in hand images of the highly anticipated Transformers Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock. This figure was first revealed earlier this year by Hasbro at Toy Fair 2018, which we reported on back in February. These images from 神回十六夜 and 模玩麦片周 on weibo definitely show him in a different light (literally) from the amazing images we previously saw from NOTRAB a while ago. We have also included those high resolution images at the bottom for you to compare how the same figure could look. Also we translated Notrab's thoughts on the figure below, which he posted on Chinese social media site Weibo along with a video review with various comparisons on Chinese video website Youku.com.

Here's the awesome Google translation of what NOTRAB wrote on Weibo regarding Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock.

NOTRAB wrote:Studio Series leader-level steel locks, deformation steps and parts count without dizziness but the deformation process is very amazing, the human type made two complete faucets to restore the movie and one of them is the biggest highlight in the dragon type hiding, the painting style is also Very satisfied... finally got a right movie steel lock


Seibertron.com has translated Google's translation as "Studio Series leader-level Grimlock: transformation steps and parts count without confusion but the transformation process is very amazing. The robot mode has two complete dinosaur heads which movie Grimlock's character model had. Those heads are one of the biggest highlights in the dinosaur mode transformation process. In addition, the painting style is also very satisfying. We finally get a properly done movie style Grimlock!" If you have a better translation, just let us know what you would suggest NOTRAB meant.

I managed to get Ratchet and Bumblebee today, both are very nice figures, though I think Ratchet should have got a Voyager because the alt mode ends up teeny-tiny compared to other Deluxes, and Bumblebee's transformation is a bit fiddly and frustrating at times. I might just keep them both in robot mode, and I'm still looking forward to getting my hands on Optimus, Brawl (even though that recent stock image makes him look like a hot mess), Blackout and Grimlock.
Do we know if there'll be more waves of Deluxes past wave 2? That leak from last year showing waves 3 and 4 of the Voyagers to be Ironhide and another Starscream, and I remember hearing the leaked listing that mentioned a Deluxe Knockout turned out to be fake.

They did it with this voyager prime, who is smaller, not with the TLK voyager prime. Which technically makes no sense since Prime never rode Grimlock in this ROTF body.

apologize, somehow my brian skipped the TLK parts there. yeah nobody has tried that one, but if studio series's crotch gap fits on grimlock's back, then tlk voyager who has a bit larger crotch gap should fit as well. and while they have different size, it is not so much that the scale will look awkward. so technically, it should work.

I can forgive the gaps in dino mode.
Sigh, it's been a while since I planned to seriously buy a Leader at full price as it come out.

No way in hell will I do that, not with our crazy price jump to 70$. Instead, come monday, I will go to TRU and try to see if I can get a raincheck

Tell us if it work. Because the TLK and Studio Series are different lines, it may not work. However, if both are just "movie TF"... :-?

Wot. Is it just Canadian price jump? and isn't that what you normally pay for a Takara leader? and why wouldn't you, it looks like it is going to be damn good, and those pictures showed he is pretty big too

In CANADIAN dollars, Movie deluxes are 30$, voyagers 40$, and leaders 70$. Except at TrU, the leader are 5$ more for reasons. As for generations, it's 20$ Dx, 30$ Vg, and 55$ Ld, except at TrU, once again, 5$ more for leaders.

I'm not so sure if I'll get grimlock right away at that price. I just hope that he'll be as common as the TLK voyager and come on sale soon enough.

This Grimlock is awesome & I can't wait to get him. Only thing I don't like is the stupid morning star right hand / big ball in his tail.

Why would I pay 70, when I could get it for 45, like I did with leader Megatron and dragon storm? I got kids to feed. And anyways, the price for generations leader toys is $55. I did pay $70 for movie the best MB 11, but he came with a plethora of accessories and had electronics. This grimlock has none of that.
