    Hasbro have filed for two new marks which we picked up earlier today - Transformers At The Moon. The marks are for

    Doom Lock - A normal toy registration
    Transformers - under the category of "Entertainment services in the nature of an amusement park ride", so this is a new application relating to Transformers the ride

    That's interesting. The only thing I can think of would be a repainted/retooled FOC Grimlock as miscreant suggested

    Yeah, first place my mind went.

    Weird choice, though. It's so... similar to Grimlock. I'd sooner go Overkill, or Dinobot, or... iunno, even T-Wrecks.

    Ugh. The possibillity that they'd waste the FoC Grimlock repaint on Doom Lock saddens me. It's just such a nonentity and has fairly uninspiring colors.

    What would I like to see?

    Either Snapdragon (as a G1 Con who hasn't been redone) or PREFERABLY remolded as Monsterbot Doublecross or Grotusque. Either of those Monsterbots would be workable with new beast (and possibly robot) heads and some added wings. THAT would be amazing.

    -ZacWilliam, admits he's biased. Grotusque is one of my favorite G1 guys.

    FOC Grimlock into Doom-lock sounds awesome.

    This seems to be the route Hasbro is taking with the non stop Repaints!

    Doom Lock certainly fits the Grimlock mold. Color me intrigued. :drool:

    Haha! So we're getting a Nemesis Grimlock.

    Except it'll probably have a new head.

    Part of me wonders if they're using Doom-lock as a fallback for not being able to get the Cruellock name again.

    If only because I'd rather have it in Cruellock's colors.

    Don't know a lot about the Doom Lock figure.

    But all odds point at FOC Grimlock being an eventual Trypticon repaint. Granted there's a significant size difference but since there's obviously no plans on making a G1 or WFC accurate Tryp, that wouldn't stop people from buying it and Hasbro knows it.

    That's more of a club thing. Doom Lock seems far more likely.

    It's also not a stretch, considering the retail versions of the FoC Combaticons are in Energon colors.

    I'll jump on any excuse to buy extras of the Grimlock mold. And an evil Grimlock sounds awesome.

    Wait so you think that a Trypticon repaint wont sell just as well as Grimlock would?

    Seriously???

    Doom Lock is more likely to be a repainted Club thing before Tryp would... But for the sake of them renewing this trademark I'd agree to Doom Lock being a Shrek-former property despite all the FOC speculation anyway.

    Actually that maybe why they went that way as it gives them much leeway for writing an all new bio while not having to worry much about hard core fans of the character demanding certain character traits.

    I'd put money on it being a nemisis style name for grimlock.
