Below you will see images from aronjlove along with images from Pun-3X and foxracing who posted on the TFW2005 boards. You will see comparison shots with leader Beast Wars Megatron and MP Grimlock.

That 86 Grimlock is a thing of sheer beauty! How does it contend with Masterpiece Grimlock that came out several years back?

Leakers did say there's plans to drop Titan Class so we can have two Commander Class figures at $100 each per year. Did they know if they were specifically for the "main line" because there's a lot they could do with that budget for Studio Series? Blackout, Grimlock, Stratos, Dragotron, Infernocus, lots of potential there.

Or rumors of how the other leader class Dinobots will be released?
I have a feeling once I have those my collecting days will be very limited.
Or my collecting in general will be very limited.

Sludge with Daniel was mentioned before we knew about Grimlock with Wheelie, and thinking about it Daniel will probably be the same as the Spike that comes with Buzzworthy Bumblebee. There was also a Walmart listing for a Deluxe Gnaw/Sharkticon so there will probably be more Deluxe figures released along side him. Incidentally Walmart also listed Tra Gen Studio Series Dlx Tf2 Bb W/ Sam which sounds like the Buzzworthy Bumblebee set might get a normal release as well.

Because it's tinted on the original figure. SS86 Grimlock is like an amalgamation of both his toy and cartoon appearances. Originally the toy was going to have gold parts (rather than cartoon yellow) and the black chest window like the toy, but they then compromised and replaced the gold with metallic yellow without changing the window. Don't suppose it's removable? I can see peg holes, but is it glued or screwed in? Looks like it would pop right off to reveal the symbol underneath.

Grimlock looks really good, but next to the MP he loses a bit of his shine. I might still get him for my movie shelf.

I think it's a major fail showing him and Megatron in robot mode but not in T-Rex mode.

I found Jazz, Kup and Blurr at my Wal-Mart today, and Kup looks much better in person than he did in photos.

I'm patiently waiting for a picture of him next to SS AOE Grimlock in both modes.

Must be nice... A few of the Targets around El Paso have Grimlock in the back but have him streetdated for Feb 1 for some reason, even though I bought the rest of SS86 barely two weeks prior :roll:

I’ll just put Grimlock on my Grimlock shelf. He’ll be fine next to MP Grimlock as a junior G1 Grimlock. :D Might wait for him to go on sale a bit, since I do have other Grimlocks.
Can’t wait to get the other dinobots!

You can tell each figure has a different purpose. SS86 Grimlock is all about that classic look you remember from the movie with a few deco differences. But it is exactly what you expect, a classic transformation with some new techniques, such as how the tail is tucked away in the back of the leg for robot mode.

Kingdom Megatron is practically a complete update, more like an homage in a way, with the realistic texturing. No idea how close the transformation is to the OG BW Megatron, but it is, to me, the right kind of complexity. Yes, there are panels, but I think that gave it a more posable beast mode. The tail swings, and the legs have a good range of motion. Grimlock has better dino arms though with an elbow joint. That allows him to give PotP Grimmy a head pat.

To be fair, if it wasn't for BW Megs and his friends, grimmy would have been in WfC part 3 ;)

not sure who he thinks is going to pay $35K for that.

Yeah, $35K no way, even if Lockdown, Heli Dropkick, KSI Sentry and Bee Prime weren't missing.

And on that, how in the hell can this guy not have Heli Dropkick? He shelfwarmed hard core in just about any store. My local Target still has one.

Exactly. PoTP is the special needs of the Grimlock family.

It takes all kinds... Just for giggles:

Missing
#11 Lockdown
#18 Bumblebee (Bumblebee VW Bug)
#19 Retro Rock Garage
#20 Retro Pop Highway
#22 Dropkick (Helicopter)
#23 KSI Sentry
#38 Optimus Prime (Bumblebee)
#48 Megatron (DotM Universal Studios)

So in total:
22 Deluxes * $20 = $440
13 Voyagers * $35 = $445
5 Leaders * $50 = $250
5 Exclusives = $150 give or take.

Total
$1,285

Post that in a reply, if you please? ;;)

I was at Walmart earlier today, and while I as not planning on getting any Transformers, I took a peek in the aisle anyway, and saw Grimlock. Man, is he a beefy boy! A return to pre-WCF Leader class height, he is impressively huge! Can't wait to get him, and the rest of the Dinobots down the line (although I have no idea where I'll put them, shelf space is rapidly depleting :shock: ).

No replies allowed, only private messages. Why do you think that is? :lol: I think he knows it's an exorbitant price for the collection. doesn't want anyone publicly posting that same break down and price. ;) :-D

I'll bookmark it just to see how long he keeps that price and if anybody decides to actually buy it.
