    We've seen some pics of Authentics Grimlock before:
    New Transformers Toy Line Optimus Prime, Megatron And Grimlock Packaging Art - Transformers News - TFW2005
    Power of the Primes Deluxe Wave 2 - In-Package Images - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Some international versions of Hasbro's website have larger photos, plus the US packaging (the leaked images featured the European packaging):
    Transformers Authentics Grimlock | Transformers
    Grimlock_packaging_US.jpg Grimlock_robot.jpg Grimlock_alternate.jpg

    But that's not all...

    It appears whatever assortment Grimlock is part of will also include different versions of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.

    Transformers Authentics Optimus Prime | Transformers
    Transformers Authentics Bumblebee | Transformers

    Different packaging and product code numbers than the old versions. I guess this is similar to Cyber Battalion vs. Cyber Commander.

    Compare:

    "Bravo" Optimus Prime, which we already know about (E1163):
    Optimus_Prime_packaging_US.jpg Optimus_Prime_robot.jpg Optimus_Prime_alternate.jpg

    New Optimus Prime (E0771):
    Optimus_Prime_packaging_US.jpg Optimus_Prime_robot.jpg Optimus_Prime_alternate.jpg

    "Bravo" Bumblebee, which we already know about (E1164):
    Bumblebee_packaging_US.jpg Bumblebee_robot.jpg Bumblebee_alternate.jpg

    New Bumblebee (E0769):
    Bumblebee_packaging_US.jpg Bumblebee_robot.jpg Bumblebee_alternate.jpg

    EDIT: Aaaand now we know what "Project Storm 1" and "Project Storm 2" is.

    Almost exactly the same molds, just with elbow joints? ...Okay then.

    Still waiting for proper CHUG-quality figures of these designs.

    Looking forward to picking up a few Grimlocks as customs. Great looking design, poor execution. I’ll be interested to see how he looks with some paint.

    Wish Bee and Prime didn't have gorilla arms. Oh well, I'm not expecting much given these are $6 and meant for places like Dollar General. The designs they're based on look neat.

    That Grimlock looks like so much fun!
    Can't wait to get him, along with Megatron and Starscream.
    The Optimus with elbows is a maybe.

    NOPE, I can't deal with those hollow legs! And the bigger they gets the crappier they look without paint...

    That didn't take long.
    Seriously, these are Dollar General-market figures people. No one is forcing them on anyone, they aren't taking the place of 'good' lines, and they're only $5. Hell, they're more articulated than some of the NuRiD stuff, and there's a market for those as well.

    I wouldn't mind a closer look at the elbow joints of that Bumblebee, they look different somehow.

    I think that Grimlock will sell quite handily.

    Grimlock looks alright, I might pick him up if I saw him. The others... nope. Kinda disappointed with the legs, appears none of these figures have anything inside/behind/under the legs so they will likely be a pain to keep standing. :/

    They're on ball joints now.

    $10 for these is alright, 7" is fairly tall for a $10 figure. I would much rather spend $10 on 1 of these rather than those RID Titan Hero things.

    I loved the "Evergreen concept art" so these pain me a little. I know, I'm not the target audience but...ugh.

    The smaller versions were like $4.99 right? If these are $10 that's not a bad figure for kids. Deluxe sized at Legend price?

    Will probably nab a Grimlock if I see it.
