    Darn it, now I probably have to get the Warbotron Grimlock too. That is the one that has to be assembled, right? If so, did you have any issues or complaints with it?

    I got mine today and he was missing a pin in his tail/leg... he's fine transformed into either mode, but the part falls off when you transform him. Anyone know how to get a replacement pin?

    Also, it's funny how the instructions tell you to use the sword to pop the head out :lol

    Ok, he is pretty good but...

    I just wish he was half a centimetre taller. I want him to have more mass in comparison to sludge and slag because he isn't quite the big boss man next them. He has the smallest head of all of them :/...

    Mechfan Toys if you are listening half a centimetre(12.5cm or even 13cm)upscaled...

    Also doesn't look so great from above with the hollow chest showing, wish it was filled. Main thing though is the size of him. Nice transformation, head articulation, all good otherwise.

    I got my Grimlock and Snarl last night and I hate to say it, but Grimlock is my least favourite. His torso looks horrible from any kind of upwards angle and it is unbelievable that he can't hold his sword properly. It's especially annoying as they gave his gun a ridiculously long handle that it doesn't need, but not the sword so he'd be able to hold it edge facing forward.

    I will give them this though, they're much easier to transform than Slag, Sludge and Swoop.

    I can see what people mean about the torso looking odd from any kind of elevated view. The weirdness of him holding the sword is kind of a strange one for them to let through as well. My main gripe however is his Dino legs/bot arms were so stiff on the torso that when I turned them, because there is a gap in the joint, they eventually work their way off. Bit of shock oil fixed it but still.

    Despite that though, and despite him missing his teeth in the front of his mouth at the top, I still love him.

    Yay, got my grimlock and I love him. The sword is a bit silly but nothing that a 30s trim doesn't sort out, and I do wish he had a waste swivel more than any of the 1st three, as that would have made him pretty perfect. But im still very happy with him.
    Not gonna get my snarl till some time next week tho, so a little while to go before the team is finished.

    I got my last two in the mail earlier this week. I've kept the first three unopened so that I could enjoy the entire set as new, once complete.

    But I'm afraid when I dig in to them, legs will start breaking :(
