At least we know the regular color Grinder v2 dino head will be reissued.
TBH, I don't think you'll care once you have him, but I say that as mine spends most of his time as a bot. Grinder is well thought out in regards to a unifying aesthetic, and solo or alongside his Dibot teammates, the stock sculpt is just fine.
However, if you only have one Dibot, and you are looking for G1 accuracy, the G1 head is definitely close to the mark, and in particular if you have him stomping around saying: "Me Grimlock no like the way local sports team chokes in the third period."
Did you paint the eyes?
I opened the head and covered the eyes in a red vinyl and reassembled. Looks much better.
I need y’all to talk me out of something.
I have Grinder with the G1 Head and blue eyes for robot mode.
I have all the rest of the Fanstoys Dinobots also done up G1 style. Blue eyes, red head on Scoria, Blue Swoop, ect.
But I love red eyes on Grimlock.
Please stop me from buying the Grinder X version and using it as Comic Grimlock!
I recently got Grinder (X) and I'm just ...blown away... at the quality and how freaking gorgeous he looks with the chrome. I have the toon head on him now, but honestly, the original head looks pretty freaking cool too. I keep it near by because, I dunno, just like looking at it too! Sometimes think about just attaching it to a wall as if it's a head a hunter gave to hang over Megatron's fire place It doesn't look like Grimlock how I picture him always, but it's a very cool head regardless.
As to the paint question: I don't see any area where it's not painted, so not sure to it being the original gray under it. And I really don't want to do even a tiny scratch
Are we slated to get a turquoise repaint of this guy? It's probably the repaint I want the most.
What version would that be based on?
Doubtful. Dalianjj asked if people preferred blue or turquoise before Bluelock came out
You and me both bud, but I just don't see it happening.
The other color for G2 Grimlock.
Edit: Fine FT, I finally caved and bought the last blue Grinder from Baba, so you can go ahead and announce a teal/turquoise version now, so you can make me spend money on this mold a 3rd time.
I bought the one before you Friday night. I have no regrets.
My birthday is early February. So I was going to treat myself to a Baba treat. My choices where purple and green mp10 ko, Mp 39, fanstoys blue trex. I have a variant prime shelf, I have a variant diobot collection, I have a sunsurge I’m comfortable with. Decided to complete my team of StompX, diaclone sever, g2 scoria, toy soar
He will be displayed in alt mode. Currently mp08 is filling that role in my collection as he has found a niche in my movie shelf. If my collection can handle 3 grimlocks on display is tbd.
Looks good. Love the toy accurate red.
Isn't FT-08G blue Grinder already based on this??
G2 had some horrible colours... was there a reason other than to re-use the mold?
Nope, he's based on this one.
Is that not the same thing? Just different lighting?
Nope, they're two totally different colors.
