The more I see of Grimlock the more I like him. The grey bothers me far less than I'd expected- I'd still be tempted to repaint the yellow bits with gold and maybe the internal neck details with chrome but that would be easy enough.

Grimlock’s looking pretty sleek, though that is a really, REALLY garnish shade of yellow. It looks kinda out of place.

I think I know what bugs people about Kup:
1. Bad posing - in several shots (including the latest), his ab joint is leaned back when it really shouldn't be, making him look awkward.
Image
He's posed better here.
2. His shoulders are too low. Not quite as bad as on the original toy (dear Primus), but they're still set too far below the neckline. They needed a double-hinge or a slide to let them migrate 5mm or so up from where they currently are. Or have the existing hinge situated higher.
3. The backpack awkwardly sticks out instead of sitting against his back, so it looks like it's floating.

Hm... Maybe I'll be getting Legends Kup after all...

That is so disappointing to me. Both "universes" bring pros and cons to the table so I wish people didn't feel the need to argue and try and prove something.

Yeah...it really feels like the attention for BW has been tacked on the past 15+ years. Thrilling to finally be getting something more dedicated to the world of BW. Btw, Hasbro people are always saying "the fans are so passionate" which I hope means they are on these forums reading what we're saying...Hasbro, if you're reading this, thanks for showing us some love by showing BW some love.

That and I would be hella psyched for an updated B'Boom, Depth Charge, Magmatron, the list goes on and on lol

Fingers crossed they eventually retool kingdom Dinobot to be BW Grimlock. Maybe just wishful thinking, or maybe in generations selects or as a convention exclusive

You are so right about Bonecrusher LOL.
!!GRIMLOCK PLEASE HASBRO!!

To me, the proportions just seems like it's 'Young Kup'.

Are Grimlocks dino arms on the wrong sides? Shouldn't the claws be pointing downward? Having them point upward makes it look like he is singing.

Yeah Grimlocks arms are on upside down in that photo, might have been done on purpose by whoever done that photo as a joke though, as you say, to make it look like he's singing :lol:

Grimlock's arms faced upwards in the 1986 movie so that's why the toy is like that. ;)

I'm in the extreme minority here, but I like the yellow on Grimlock. The gold has always turned me off. If his thighs were blue instead of black, he'd be Marvel comic accurate.

For me it's the coloring, and I FINALLY put two and two together and figured out what it was: his chest plate. In the movie the chest plate is a light-blueish-grey color; in this production model it's just too dark and doesn't provide color contrast, making this chest very boring. If they were to replace that translucent blue with a solid bluish-light grey, I think he'd look almost perfect.

I still can't decide if I want to get this Kup or stick with my generations Kup with the iGear upgrade.

...the Beast Wars movie has to happen in the first place :lol:


Exactly...matter of fact it hasn't even been officially announced, right? What was the point of this question?


I was under the impression that the Japanese Beast Wars series got a "Movie" or two during its lifetime. Something that bridged between BW II and Neo? If I'm wrong, my bad. My point in asking was looking at the broader probability that the 86 line is the first step in expanding Studio Series beyond just the live action films and including all Transformers cinematic media.

You are correct. The others who responded to your post didn't understand that that's what you meant and instead thought you were talking about the rumored Beast Wars movie that may or may not be coming from Hollywood.

That may also provide possibilities, like that Bay-verse Primal :lol:

As for the BWII Movie, that was more of a side-story happening in the middle of the series. Run-of-the-mill stuff if you're an anime fan, except they did buck tradition a bit by not reusing transformation stock footage from the series, instead newly animating some especially for the movie.

I absolutely hate Kup's head sculpt. It's like Hasbro did a crossover with the live action skeletor. I also think Blur's chin is too big.

I've pre-ordered the rest. I'll buy everything as long as the head sculpts reflect the characters accurately.

Any word yet on whether Wheelie transformers?
Re: New Production Shots of Transformers Studio Series 86 Figures (2084412)
Posted by ZeroWolf on October 17th, 2020 @ 7:02pm CDT
Also, given that the Beast Wars II movie waz exclusively Japanese, its not likely to be on Hasbro's radar. Again, the only reason that Studio Series 86 exists is because there was no more room in Kingdom.

Edit:

Wheelie is a poseable non-transforming figure

Probably going to be some unpopular opinions here but just to reiterate, as a fan of the original series, these toys look great, but I do feel bad for SS fans as this line has been infiltrated by TFTM based toys. They Should have been their own subline.

But then again to all those fans complaining "there's too much G1"....well when most off these toys pre-orders sell out on Hasbro Pulse , you can see why they will continue to remake these classic characters. I went to Walmart today, most of the Netflix an ER toys they had were gone, but plenty of Cyberverse and SS sitting on shelves.

I sincerely hope the kingdom line does well, even though I'll only be getting a few of them. I'm mean for my dollars, more original Series Transformers is always good. But if you want more of other eras, or more new stuff, support it with your purchases. Actually the only Kingdom toys I've pre ordered so far are the Fossilizers which are arguably all new creations.


Edit-For the record the BWII movie is amazing fun, its nice the fansub is readily available, but I'd absolutely support an official release in North America. Also, until it comes from someone at Hasbro, I still don't believe SS 86 are just leftover Kingdom Toys, it doesn't make any logical sense.

Pretty sure people are saying they're overflow, not leftover.

I don't recall a single instance of Grimlock using his sword in the series.
