    Based on the Ultra Magnus version.

    DISCUSS!!!!!

    IMO it could have been better but I am still FREAKING PUMPED!!

    Shield needs to be bigger though.
    The sword is AMAZING and I LOVE it.
    SO glad he's a Voyager. Now he'll be in scale with my Deluxe FOC Optimus!

    Fuck, this thing looks fantastic! Can't wait to get one!

    But the sad thing is, it's the only FOC Voyager I want so far.

    Doesn't seem like that much of an upgrade from classics Grimlock but the size makes this version the one to get. I hope the rest of the Dinobots get released eventually.

    Same here. But I don't think it's sad. It was a stupid move to make a Voyager of Soundwave when he already has a much better Deluxe. And the Deluxe is more in-scale.
    Although he seems to get a ton of appreciation even though everybody thinks my want of a new Cliffjumepr is a bad idea. I mean, the only Cliff we have doesn't even have the right glow color.

    I hope they at least make Sludge. He's awesome and cool and epic and I love him. He's probably the least likely to get a toy though as it seems based on his design it would be hard to make one even remotely accurate.

    It is fantastic! I just hope they don't change the paint job at all. What they have right now is perfect! I am amazed the got the figure to work without a giant bunch of kibble.

    I'm definitely excited for Grimmy but in the back of my mind I'm a little disappointed since there's little chance of the other four Dinobots actually getting toys at all :(

    It's almost off-putting how little kibble he seems to have. And even that barrel chest full of electronics is pretty innocuous.

    I just really hope the handpainted colors translate well into molded plastic.

    Also, do people really think this isn't an upgrade from Classics Grimlock?

    Does anybody know how his electronics work? Is there a switch so you can have the lights on without having to constantly hold a button, or is it the latter? Also, does he have voice chips, or just lights (I really hope the latter...)?

    IIRC, Weaponizers have light, but no sound, and Voyagers of course have light, but no sound, at the moment. So that's probably your answer.

    I'd say continuous pressure is required too.



    Here's to the vocal minority, people who complain until something is Supreme Class, wait until they can buy it at Voyager cost, and then complain because there's are no more Supreme class toys.

    I agree, pressure button and no sound is the most likely.

    And too true about "teh fandom".

    I see it as an upgrade to ENERGON Grimlock. (My Classics Grimlock) They both have the hulky broad-topped robot form, the dome-shaped shoulders - even the dino head is similarly shaped.

    Also like Energon Grim, I wish there was some red on the lower robot torso instead of more yellow/gold. Ain't stoppin' me from buying an army of 'em though.

    I think he looks really cool. His fat dino-tail is sort of ugly but that is a minor complaint.
    I am going to use him as classics Grimlock (sorry orginal classics Grimlock, but you are fired!). Great that even though the toys aren't as big as they usually were he is a voyager and will thus be a little bit taller than your average classics/generations deluxe.

    I am absolutely, positively getting one for myself and I hope that the rest of the Dinobots will be released as either Deluxe or Voyager class figures!

    Althought when I get my own FOC Voyager Grimlock, I plan on shortening or cutting off the "thumbs" of his T-Rex mode hands.

    Any T-Rex should have only 2 fingers!

    This is a HUGE upgrade compared to the crappy Classics version of grimlock (don't even like calling the thing grimlock) we have, I have the original and Henkei and this right here KILLS them! With a little bit of red & black paint I'll make him into a great classics version!

    LOVE IT!
