Fellow Seibertronian KillerOh has posted a pictorial review, on Seibertron.com, of Cyber Battalion Grimlock. The review shows the articulation, which appears to be the best of the bunch, as well as size comparisons. More images can be found in the review and on his facebook album. A few of the images have been posted below. This figure and the rest of the line are available at Robot Kingdom for Pre-order.

Yeah, because those TFs is now the norm and every single new TFs that will come out from now on will be exactly like these!

Or...

How DARE they making another kind of product for a different market, a different public with a different budjet? Hasbro must cater to MY needs alone!

I know that this will be really, really hard for some people to understand, but you are aware that it is possible for a person to not like a Hasbro product without that dislike being an indicator of these idiotic responses that you project onto a person, right? This kind of 'reply' doesn't actually make the person who dislikes something look silly or anything, it just makes the person who employs them look like an idiot.
Nothing is being projected. The vast vast majority of transformers fans actually feel this way.

I actually REALLY like how smoothly the T Rex head fits into the back, it looks very well integrated. I'm not a huge fan of the Rex mode, it's a bit off, but I would buy Grimlock on his own for the robot mode. He'd look really nice with a custom paint job to help that detail pop.

I'd like to do that, but I didn't know how... :lol:
Anyway, it's already in the front page and I've got 1 news credit :DANCE: thanks to willian-james88. :)

I agree with you, specially with the dino mode. And here's NECA's Godzilla to show it. :P

To be frank, for me he's the best of the line, the shoulder/transformation articulation is a true winner here. Next to him is Megatron, the paint apps on him are nice and SHINY! :D Too bad Starscream had no kness, because that was THE deal breaker to me. Optimus and Bee just... not for me. Also, I already have lots of them, so I won't miss them.

Should Hasbro have added some extra joints (To be frank, only Bicep/Elbol swivels and Thigh/Knee swivels were enough for me), these would be a nice "cost/benefict toys" for collectors, but for kids they're quite nice.

For me, I'd like to see him in RiD15 colours. :KREMZEEK:

Why not both?

I don't have a Universe of Henkei Dinobot, but this guy would be a decent and cost effective stand in for Dinobot. While the dino mode is all wrong, the robot mode is a pretty good match for Dinobot. Tall and thin with long limbs while still beefy and intimidating.

Hey lookit, he has basic articulation! thus making it the only figure from this line worth buying.

Cyber Megatron has also the very same articulation, just the shouders aren't "natural" as Grimlock's due to the transformation. Also, Megatron's hip joints are WAY stronger, but too much spaced per click; Grimlock's smooter so we can "cheat" them.

Oh, and Megatron comes with... a GUN! =P~

Because my wallet says so. :lol:

Being him a T-Rex, why not a "Transmetal Megatron", just like that "FoC Grimlock with BW Megatron head"?

As for "Cyber Battalion Dinobot"... That gives me an idea. :michaelbay:

Yes, this is a KO BW Dinobot with Hardhead legs... or a KO BWN Hardhead with Dinobot's robot and beast heads! 8-}
And no, Grimlock cannot hold those weapons normally because they are "half-pegs". I've used a piece of paper for proper holding. :P

Now some comparsions with RiD15 Strongarm and Steeljaw in their alternative modes, as well as Cyber Megatron in tank mode... as a placehold for Megatronus? You choose. :D

Unfortunately, the T-rex mode legs have no functional knees...
20150617_154129.jpg


BONUS! :michaelbay:
Grimlock, transform to Dino Mode so we can ride you into battle!

And now with "Steeljoe" in his "secret" Mario Kart mode! :D
(Just transform his legs back to vehicle mode in robot mode)

Well damn, I now need that Grimlock so I can get a customizer to paint him up in his RID colors. :shock:

So that's Megs AND Grimlock I want now. :-B

In America, however, X-Brawn's head would be in the front passenger seat instead of the driver's seat. ;)

Yes, as Steeljaw still have his hands and tail avaliable, just like an upside-down gerwalk mode. :lol:

Being this a "child line", why not compare him with another "children toys"? :P
- With Total Heroes Mr. Freeze and Despicable Me Stuart with Fart Dart Launcher
20150617_150005.jpg

- With LEGO Hero Factory Brain Attack Aquagon and TF Construct-Bots Soundwave (With the wings placed in his back instead of arms)
