    Hey guys, since purchasing MP Grimlock I am in the market for a G1 figure now too. Here's one that I'm looking at but I noticed something, it has blue eyes...

    I wasnt aware that this figure ever had a blue eyes variant but I dont know that much about it. Is this right? Is it possibly just someone repainted over it? Or could it be a KO? What do the experts here say?
    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Hey Hippie, my guess would be that its just a custom paint job,as I see a little overspray
    on the eyebrow,and not really the best job either.As for knockoff I doubt it as most of the
    ko dinobots have subtle changes to them like a spiked horn on grimmy's head and so forth.
    so I am bout 80% sure its legit.Hope that helps.

    I agree... He looks completely legit, except for the eyes which should be red. I checked tfwiki for you, but no mention of a "blue eye" variant... not that checking tfwiki ends the discussion or anything.

    The eyes look custom painted. The G1 toy has red eyes in alt mode.
