    I've had a G1 Grimlock that I ordered from ebay a while ago. It's in great shape with hardly any wear and tear. It ocurred to me that since there is a grey version of the G2 Grimlock that I could've bought the wrong version by mistake.

    My question is how do I tell them apart? Is there something different about the two? Does the grey G2 version have the rubsign?

    Thanks to anyone who posts!!

    Saw it on ebay a couple of weeks ago. There's a blue, turquoise, and grey version of the G2 Grimlock.

    The seller had all three MISP.

    So it'll have an autobot faction logo rather than the rubsign then?

    *Whew*

    Actually it'll have the G2 Logo and "autobot" printed next to it.

    Ebay:
    All G2 Rereleases of the original molds have that stamp on them somewhere.

    No it should have a rubsign, rather than the autobot logo and the word autobot (the G2 stamping, see bumblebee pic above)

    g1 = rubsign
    g2 = (symbol) autobot

    Theres a few differences. 1. as you can see below the gen2 (which is on the left) grimlock has a much less "gold" color chest, its closer to silver. other than that, the G2 version has a small peg and hole on the t-rex chest halves that allow them to stay together better in dinosaur mode. also there is tab on the back of the (G2) t-rex neck and that keeps the head from flipping too far back.

    hope that helps.

    If the metallic parts of the G1 Grimlock can be considered to be the color of gold the G2 version can be considered to be the color of cesium.
