What if Grimlock appeared in the japanese TF:Victory series?
Based on the 1989 Pretender toy released in Japan (but without Pretender outer shell)

Markers on manga paper+ps colors.

What a coincidence! I literally just opened a package containing a complete Pretender Grimlock! Not a very impressive toy, but fun none-the-less, and this does look like him!

These toys were released in the US without pretender shells as well. I actually had this Grimlock figure. Bought at K-Mart as a kid. Simple bubble plastic on cardback packaging i believe. I didn't realize it was a pretender figure until discovering this site many, many years later.

This Grimlock could of been him in Victory. Grimlock never died. This is awesome. Definitely canonical for Grimlock during his Victory years.

That's why I liked the Classic Pretenders when they were released in 89. They were a good substitute for the original toys, though Bumblebee was superior to the original and Goldbug.

How about another Victory re-imagining by Guido Guidi? The fan favorite artist has updated his deviantART account with his version of Victory Bumblebee based on his Pretender appearance.

nother re-imagining of a classic character:
Bumblebee, as if appeared in the "TF:Victory" series - based on the 1989 pretender toy.
(I know it does already exist another character model used for a tv commercial)

Thanks Guido, that Bumblebee is one of my most prized posesions, even though I got him sans shell and with no weapons. He looks quite the warrior in this style.

The retrostyle is just pure love. My G1 sense is tingling.

That looks f**king amazing. I would pay money for a figure of Guidi's take on any of the classic pretender robots, hell I'd take a figurine... I don't give a sh*t if it transforms, as long as it looked like the artwork. Damn good.

And coincidently enough, I recently picked up this guy loose but complete too, together with the Pretender Grimlock I mentioned earlier in this thread.

Anyone ever notice how Pretender / Legends Bumblebee has Cliffjumper's head?
