    Well, I don't have a problem with it. I also don't have a problem with MP Grimlock other than size. Having said that, I do agree this is not very likely to be a real FT item. FT always announce releases through dalianjj. That plus the fact they it is too close to the recently announced Sludge, makes this unlikely.

    I don't know what to think about the legitimacy of this drawing. Dalianjj posted in both the Stomp and Tesla threads earlier this morning, but hasn't come in here to clear things up? I'm mildly skeptical.

    I've been going back through all Fanstoys reveals and none have used this style of backdrop. Not. A. Single. One. Apart from this.

    Someone's pulling our collective legs.

    or they've decided to change the background?

    If you look through the root of the server space it has the exact same signatures as the previous pictures sizing.

    Index of /en-US/wp-content/uploads/2015

    You only have to look at the head to see this is an FT design, There's no natural contouring there.

    I can almost guarantee this is NOT a FansToys design. I'm pretty certain based on chatting with Dalianjj that a FT Grimlock is months from reveal because it's still in the design process. Plus, as someone already mentioned, all FansToys reveals are by Dalianjj and Stomp was JUST revealed and not even finalized.

    No way this is an FT design.

    Head looks too accurate;) 

    Anyway, too early to tell...so far I don't like it and if it stays that way I'll just be saving some money. No big deal for me because I really want Grimlock and Slag and their Slag is already a pass.

    The Chest is my only complaint. I don't think we need any translucent or clear plastic like on the official figure, but molded closer to cartoon shape would be much better.

    Yeah, saw that as well. Mildly skeptical is an understatement.

    Surprised no one has posted the FT silhouettes. The others are pretty close to their silhouettes (the silhouettes possibly even made from FT lineart) but this one seems very different. If this is FT, it seems a real departure from the toon accuracy and I'm really not feeling it.

    I'm sure they wont let us down though.

    Real or fake... it is a drawing.

    Nothing to worry about. I't's just the first step.

    Ft always went the "toon" way, I don't think they're gonna change. They've got time to make a proper toon MP Grimlock.

    This image is, indeed, quite "Gigapower like", but I think (and hope) that Giga will go the "toy" way, with smaller shoulders.

    Weird. They could have simply upscaled the existing MP and it would have fit in perfectly with all their others. But this... as others have said, it looks more like a Giga dino.

    That is a great point. It really is a big deviation from the silhouette.

    Yeah, this design style looks very GigaPower to me. Not to mention the fact that Giga has been choosing names starting with 'G' and FT have been choosing names starting with 'S'.

    Usually when there is anything new to be revealed Dalianjj would be the first to post it. Odd now someone else posts before him. This Grimlock doesn't even fit FT's style. If Dalianjj didn't post it, its not true. Thats what I say.

    Grimlock starts with a "G", Slag, Sludge,Swoop and Snarl all start with an " S".
