    Plenty of people have shuffled it onto their Classics shelf....although it towers over most deluxes.

    I don't own it so I can say for sure, if its bigger than a voyager I would say its out of scale, but then I consider the universe ultras horribly out of scale to.

    It's in good enough scale for my tastes, however, YMMV.

    The Dinobots were absolutely massive in comparison to the Autobots in Season 1 of the cartoon and also in the early Marvel comics too.

    I have Grimlock with them and doesn't look out of place at all in my eyes.

    Dinosaur mode looks just a bit out of scale to me, robot mode looks a lot more out of scale.
    This is one of the few figures I would love to see resized by I-gear into voyager class.

    I don't have him, but I've seen a bunch of pics with him and Classics, and he fits in fairly well.

    Poor lighting, but you get the idea.

    Small for a MP, but imo still too big.

    But since it's Classics, people may over look that possibility.

    NO, I do think he's in scale with the alterantors though.

    I have him with my Classics. Perhaps a bit too big, but a much better alternative than the deluxe version.

    MP grimlock fits in great IMO.

    Its not in scale with everything, but nothing is...

    I like the scale in this pic. Seems PERFECT to me.

    In my opinion he's too big, but many people seem to disagree. I'd prefer if he was just a little bit smaller, like Ultra sized

    He seems to look perfect next to the MP Seekers and PP-01 Faith Leader (and this Prime KO does look great with the Classics and Alternators line, I have to admit, so by inference Grimlock should too). In fact, I was thinking of getting Grimmy just for this reason but we'll see. Re-released MP-08 FTW!

    He's perfect for a classics display, far better than the deluxe POS.

    Yes, with Voyager Classics Prime and whatnot, he's close enough to the scale guides to fit.

    I just don't think aesthetically he fits it. He's got a lot of shiny chrome and gold, with some die cast pieces here and there, it just doesn't go with the dull plasticy look of the classics. Yeah, and he's too big.
