    I believe most remember the picture of Grimlock in Trypticon’s colors. If not, you can check out the picture here.


    Some people speculated that it was a prototype, while others thought it might be an official repaint into Trypticon. The Classics 1.0 is over but wouldn’t it be great if the Grimlock mold was increased into a leader or supreme class figure? He would be a perfect complement to Cybertron Metroplex; a nice update to the two G1 titans. It can be released at the end of the Movie line, in the new Universe line, Animated Line or even Classics 2.0. If they made it a convention exclusive then it would be a big hit with fans in multiple ways. Do you think Hasbro/Takara would make it?

    Edit (9/22/07): I completely understand the sentiments of wanting larger figures with the appropriate articulation especially for leader and supreme class figures. When I posed the idea I only thought about the general design of Grimlock instead thinking about the limitations of the mold. The solution is simple! Use the same basic concept art but create a new mold or retool the original mold so it would have the appropriate articulation. Similar to deluxe Brawl versus leader Brawl; they represent the same character/ design/ concept art but they have two different molds.

    No thanks. Theres no need to supersize him he'd be too simple as a leader. Why not just make a new Trypticon rather than repaint Grimlock?

    That's probably just the prototype for Classics Grimlock to even start with.

    Yeah, a supersized Grimlock into Trypticon would really suck. I'd prefer a new mold that is a base and T-Rex.

    As much as I would love an update to Trypticon, I think he deserves a new mold.

    Er, that pic's from last November. It was just an off-color test shot. Here's the accompanying Nemesis Rattrap.

    Or wait, his name is "Beast War Mouse", because IT SAYS SO ON THE PHOTO!

    Also, where the hell did you get the "supersized" bit from?

    and some knew that it was just a test-shot made with whatever plastic colors they happened to have handy, and that's it. and some decided it was galvatron.

    Universe IS "Classics 2.0", there's no seperation. it wouldnt fit in the movie line (realism) or the animated line (different design type). and it would suck as trypticon because trypticon doesnt look anything like that, and doesnt turn into a robot.

    Nah, I think tformers would have spun that as both a movie toy prototype, and "war mouse" in beast mode.

    You gotta read the post before you criticize! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I mentioned prototype in my initial post. I posed a question about your feelings (as a fan) of supersizing the Grimlock mold and repainting as Trypticon. I know that the picture old.

    Personally, I'd rather see Trypticon get his own mold if he was updated. Also, upsizing a Deluxe into a Leader would simply suck. It's like the Minicon ko's that are the size of deluxe's.

    Um - I liked Supreme Starscream.
    I'd love to have an upsized (Voyager?) Grimlock.
    And I wouldn't mind a Trypticon repaint - simply because repaints are part of the game.

    personally, I'd like to see the "legends" Trypticon and Motormaster made out of their original counterparts (ultra scourge and leader prime). I thought those were great character choices and color schemes that would look great on the original molds, but I dont integrate legends with my normal figures
