was done the way the character was originally conceived. it was revealed awhile back that the creators originally had another dinobot, an orange/red stegosaurus, was meant to be the teams fifth member. but because AOE was coming out and grimlock was in that, hasbro stepped in to have the character changed. from the concept art, which ill post below this, its clear they shared a lot of design cues and their personalities would have been the same. as much as i love RID version of grimlock, i wish we would have had this new character to get to know. i mean, one difference to the series based on the old design may have been the issue of him sticking out to much to go on missions, but in his original version, he was on all fours and lower to the ground and may have been easier to hide, so he might have been more active in battles and episodes. obviously since he was a stegosaur, you prob would get handful of people thinking he's snarl lol. plus i have to say i love the look of having his tail in bot mode. for some reason, just looking at the concept art, the character just feels so, different, even though he still would have likely had the same personality grim has. i just think it would have been cool to see the original plan/look for the character in the series. anyone else agree of have thoughts on this.
