    Looove this dude. He has problems for sure but it just feels so nice to at last have a dedicated CHUG Grimlock. 

    I went and assembled a sword for him out of LEGO which works perfectly but I wish he had included one by default.

    Looks alright. I’m not super sold on the combined mode and I’m not really a big dinobot fan. I like them reasonably but they’re not my favourite. I hope this gets made into dinoking however.

    It\'s a shame that the G1 version, in both modes, still looks better than the POTP version.  Will see ever get a decent, G1 style Grimlock from Hasbro, do you think?

    Hasbro, Hell no. Takara, maybe if they get off their ass and make a new toy.

    They're basically the same, at the moment, though...

    Not the best toy I've got to admit. The dino-mode thighs are huge, and I feel like his robot head is a little on the small side. Still, I respect the G1 aesthetic of it. Not a bad toy by any means, just not as great as it could have, and should have, been.

    Loving the combiner mode though. I really wasn't onboard with the whole Dinobot combiner thing at first, but it looks awesome so far, especially the torso. Can't wait for wave 2 to hit the shelves so I can assemble the full thing.

    Grimlock's robot mode is good and the combined mode is good if you put it together right. The dino mode...has issues. Awesome pics, though.

    The likes of Nitro?

    Please. I sold that chunk of kibble a week after I bought him.

    Nitro is ten times the figure Grimlock is.

    Mostly because Nitro actually looks like what he's supposed to be in alt mode.

    The robot mode really shines. THe dino mode has got some issues indeed, but looks great in pictures according to the angle.

    I absolutely agree. If starscream and Elita can be voyagers with accessories apart from feat in the same line then there’s no excuse for grimlock.

    Same goes for Hun-Grrr. Hasbro really dropped the ball on not giving Grimlock at least his trademark sword and Hun-Grrr his gun.

    I like how the original 34 year old toy looks a thousand times better in Dino mode than the brand new fresh toy they had over 3 decades to learn and evolve from.

    The original toy wasn't a combiner.
