    Not liking the clear sword blade and gun barrels. The energo sword won't look "right" unless the LED is turned on and the blaster would look odd either way.

    Very cool indeed.

    EDIT: Also - is that a cannon on Megatron's arm?

    Negative, it's just the car doors. Instead of becoming "wings" like on GT-R Convoy, they come down along side the arms.

    On the plus side, good to see they transform differently.

    MP Grimlock is the first MP I'm excited for having a good robot and alt mode. :D

    Well I sure am glad I got in on the group purchase of MP Grimlock over on Cybertron.ca. He does keep looking better and better.

    That and MP OP was starting to get overwhelmed what with MP Megatron and his 3 seekers.

    Appears Grimlock has some kind of swappable/revealable Autobot symbol gimmick for the chest.

    Grimmy is fantastic - can't wait to hold him in my hangs.

    Alternity Megatron looks bloody terrible. I will hold outmy final judgement until we see some pictures with finished paintwork but this test shots look like an easy pass to me. His head is fantastically comical.

    Grimlock looks great in the new photos! :D  Does the article say anything about his other accessories? While it's nice to see that he does have his gun, does it say anything about the crown, or the apron, bow tie, and serving tray?

    Grimlock is cool and out, but I don't really like the paint scheme. A bit too colorful

    Alternity Megatron is looking great!

    Grimlock looks nice, but I wont pick up this release, its decals are worse in detail then the old G1 Grimlock, I know they want to please fans but I like my super extra costly toys well painted. Hope Hasbro colors it in a modern way.

    Grimlock continues to look awesome with every new picture. It's nice to finally see his gun. It's interesting to see how the eye color change will work in dino-mode. The gimmick with the Autobot logo on his chest is interesting too. I'm still going to wait for the inevitable Hasbro release of him, but the Takara one is looking good so far.

    I'm not overwhelmed. It's looks decent though.

    Hmmm... I've been massively looking forward to the Alternity line for the last six months, but I'm a little bummed by Megs. The head sculpt seems off and I'm not digging the whole "hey, I've got the entire front end of a car on my shoulders" look to him. Seems like the wheels, fenders, or front bumper ought to fold away somehow.
