    I absolutely love Energon Grimlock, and think he fits in with the Classics line better than Classics Grimlock. I only have two very small gripes with the figure.

    First, the T-rex mouth doesn't open as wide as looks like it could. If you have any suggestions to amend this I'd really appreciate it. Second, and the main reason why I'm making this post, is that E. Grimlock's outward/sidekicking articulation (what, it's the best way I could describe it!) is very, very limited. If I dremel out the portion of the leg I highlighted in red, would that help increase the leg articulation?

    Now if overdue that then it might become too loose, but its your decision, as for the mouth..if I had it I would leave it be, but for you I don't know what you can do with it without causing too much damage.

    My advice?

    Sell Energon Grimlock because he's
    A) a rare figure, and you might get a good price
    B) extremely flawed

    Then put that money towards MP Grimlock. :)
