    You probably clicked this thinking it was another Leader Class Grindor thread.


    Well, it's not. This a thread for something else.

    ROBOT REPLICAS Grindor. Seeing as a Leader Grindor will not happen, why not vouch for a smaller, screen accurate and fun toy?

    He'd come with the standards of RRs:

    -A gun on one hand/arm.
    -A melee wepon on the other (Blade fan)
    -Decent/Good posability
    -Accurate sculpt (especially this time around; the first movie RRs were pretty bad.)

    Anyone else think this is a good idea?

    I'm really amazed at all the love for Grindor/Blackout. I'm not really that into the character.

    It's in the hopes that a leader class Grindor will eventually result in a "proper" Leader class Blackout.

    Personaly, I might bite for a robot replicas Grindor, but I still need the voyager mold, so I might not.

    It's a good idea but, I think if I'm getting a Grindor, it'll be the voyager.

    RR Blackout/Grindor? god no. Have you guys seen RR BB and Skids? they are terrible! Not movie accurate at all. I'd rather have a Leader Blackout.

    But it will never happen. Might as well shoot for something that's probably already been approved. Everybody who didn't get an RR from the first movie (Ratchet, Ironhide, Starscream) with the exception of Brawl, Bonecrusher, and Blackout, got one in this line. Blackout's design is now in 2 movies, so I'm sure Hasbro is already working on an RR Blackout/Grindor.

    Being a hardcore Robot Replicas fan .. I would definitely get one.
    I really wished they would do an entire set of RR's for all movie characters (unlikely, I'm merely dreaming).

    I'd go for a Robot Replica version.
    That voyager is terrible.

    I'm not at all. Then again, Blackout is probably my fav. TF movie continuity character.

    I...guess...?

    Though I'd Rather have a TRANSFORMING one, after all, they are TRANSFORMERS, aren't they?


    That is all I'm sticking with...

    No, they're TOYS of Transformers from the movie.

    I'd like to see a RR's first, because I don't know if his design, while cool on film, would look good as a non-transforming figure.

    Not something I'd buy, but it would still be neat, given Grindor's role in the film.

    Why not, I actually like RR's. I give up transformation for awesome poseability + accuracy. Always sounded like a decent deal to me. Also liek to have the RR's for the robot fights and keep the other toys always in alternate mode.
