    I think the maximals razorbeast gathered up will come into play. After all if they don't it'd be a waste of even bringing them togethere in the first 3 issues.
    I hope Lio Convoy gets into the fray as well. I predict grimlock wuppn tail, then finally slowing down, and thats when the maximals join the fray. I'd like to see primal do something to, its funny how he's on the covers but only showed up once in the book. Also I imagine Megatron will take advantage of the fight and either escape or fight both magmatron and the maximals. I hope the issue is an all out slugfest.

    4 issues weren't enough to squeeze this story together. A 6 parter woulda been a bit better. I hope Beast Wars #4 ends the same way Marvel's G1 #4 ends.

    What's got me a little confused is that BW Grimlock was a repaint of Dinobot. Dinobot was a Raptor. So why is Grimlock so big here and lookin like a T-Rex? :huh

    I see that the scale of Grimlock is established, by Iguanus's head in his teeth.

    Good question. In another thread someone suggested he was another type of raptor, one that was larger.

    I can't wait to find out how Grimlock ended up on earth.

    If memory serves right, in the Marvel comics, he and the other Dinobots were activated by the Ark's computer in the past to defend against Shockwave.

    So one could assume that the Dinos were aboard the Ark when it crashed.

    Seeing that he's got a Maximal body here, wouldn't it stand to reason that he came from a stasis pod? Meaning he survived the Great War, eventually became a Maximal (kinda like how Ravage was upgraded into a Predacon) and then became a crew member of the Axalon and was placed in a stasis pod. I don't think they'd risk changing history by pulling his spark out of his G1 body and putting it in a blank protoform just to fight Magmatron and his Predacons.
