Is it just me, or is that G1 styled head looking a bit like it could be a battle mask?

I'm pretty sure its obvious that's what it is.


Some of Grimlock's toys have that battle mask (without the visor)




That and the fact that everyone and their motherboard has a battle mask in RID I'm pretty sure Grimlock will use this mask in future episode(s).

The Legion figure has the blue visor, though they painted the mask gold.

you know I really dig the look of this grimlock, I just cant be sold on the colors. I dunno. It makes no sense for a dino to be silver and gold but I dont like black and green either. Hopefully they will release a repaint like we saw in the battle game.

I am so glad they didn't go with that G1-esque head as his default head. The faced one is SO much more expressive and emotive.

Though, I would be okay with it used as a battle mask, but so far, Grimlock hasn't had a battle mask in any of the first 14 episodes.

Huh, a Yellow Autobot symbol. I don't recall every seeing one in that color. That said, I can't help but imagine it being something that would drive IDW Ultra Magnus nuts, lol.

It's red on the final version, thankfully.

Right, but still interesting that it was a consideration at one point in the design process.

Once again via the French TV programming website Programme-TV.com we have listings for more episodes (16 to 21) of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series.

Beware, some of these may contain spoilers, as none have aired in the US or Australia yet, and we're talking about a good advance compared to at least the US show. If you're so inclined, head below to read what's coming on June 10th and 17th on Canal J - translated from French!


16 - Sideswipe loses his head

When the latest team training session leaves Sideswipe wiped out, the young Autobot realises he cannot always rely on physical strength.

17 - Honour above all

Drift returns to Earth in pursuit of Jetstorm. Meanwhile, Bumblebee's team must face an escaped Springload and Quillfire.

18 - Grimlock's Wound

Unaware of Grimlock hiding a severe wound, Bumblebee and the team head towards the ocean in pursuit of a Decepticon.

19 - The champion

Groundpounder, an ancient gladiator become Decepticon, escapes and joins a TV fighting program. Grimlock will have to face him.

20 - Malfunction

Fixit's glitch becomes worse. Denny tries fixing it, but accidentally triggers his security programming. Fully armed, Fixit turns on the others.

21 - Siege

Steeljaw and his gang manage to enter the junkyard, and try freeing the cryofrozen Decepticons while keeping the Autobots away thanks to a sonic wave field. Our heroes will have to show cunning and strategy to enact their plan and take back their base.

You know, Episode 21 is one episode in which Steeljaw's army will get a shot to free all the Decepticons captured by the Autobots, saying that he will kill the Autobots if they ever try to stop him. Does that means, that all Decepticons will be freed before the Autobots stop him? I don't know about that. But it seems to me that Bumblebee isn't scared of threats.

As for a new Decepticon called, Groundpounder, he will face Grimlock for the very first time. Does that mean that Groundpounder will be the second rival to Grimlock, next to Underbite?

In episode #18, the entire Autobot team travels to the ocean to search for an escaped Decepticon. Could this mean the return of Hammerstrike, a brand-new Decepticon, or both? :CON:

I'm guessing it's a new one. Bumblebee and Grimlock took down Hammerstrike by themselves, so the whole team going after him doesn't seem likely.

Keep one thing in mind about these episode titles. Since they are translated from French, it is likely that they aren't quite what the English episode titles are to be officially called.

That may be true, bluecatcinema. But in case that you didn`t realize, steeljaw is planning to free all the Decepticons and threatened to kills the Autobots if they get in his way. So, I`m pretty sure that we might be able to see Hammerstrike again for the second time, inluding Bisk, Terrashock, Filch, and Ped. That`s not been confirmed,yet. What has been confirmed is that Quillfire and Springload are scheduled to make a reappearance in future episodes. :CON:

Where does it say he wants to kill the Autobots?

Except that the ocean episode comes BEFORE the episode Steeljaw tries to free the other Decepticons.

Sabrblade, in episode #21, Steeljaw is using aonic field to keep Autobots away, according to the plot description. Don't forget, Hasbro has stated that he is the most dangerous and most fearsome Decepticon to date. To me, that enough to say that Steeljaw is planning to use threats if he has to. :CON:

Nicerato to see that they intend to bring back a bunch of characters. The hijinks that the pairing of Quillfire and Springload should be grand fun. Now let's see some toys of these guys!

So in other words, it's not a fact that he's trying to kill anyone, but is instead just your interpretation of the description.
