    I really don't understand then hate for TLK Grimlock, he's a repaint yeah but he's a REALLY good one. I actually like that they went with G1 blue in the robot mode eyes too, looks sweet.

    I agree that as a redeco he's good, I love the colors. But he happens to have the misfortune of being released with 5 new voyager molds, one of which is another dinobot with more impressive robot and alt modes. Grimlock was the last voyager I got (for my brother) and after handling the other ones, he left me feeling underwhelmed.

    It's because it was a figure in wave 1 that clogged shelves which in turn, led retailers to be apprehensive about ordering future waves until said Grimlocks sold. The figure itself has arguably the best paint job the mold ever had. However figures of Grimlock and the other Dinobots(who were barely in TLK, except Slash who wasn't even in it), were better served as store exclusives, not as part of the mainline.

    If repaints from TF4 HAD to be in the TLK mainline, personally I would've saved them for the tail-end waves, not the 1st 2 waves.

    I really don’t understand the logic they use with the figure choices for the waves.
    They did the same with the DotM line.

    They dump in a bunch of figures for characters that barely appear in the film, characters that don’t appear in the film, and repaints of old molds into the first couple waves,
    while most of the new characters and molds that matter are left in the later waves.

    First waves of figures clog shelves, because retailers alwaaaaaays order a shit ton of those and then the rest of the waves get poorly distributed.

    Yea it's an ongoing and terribly annoying problem. The waves for TLK were poorly planned. This is how I would've planned it:

    Voyager wave 1
    • Optimus Prime
    • Megatron
    Voyager wave 2:
    • Hound
    • Nitro
    Voyager wave 3:
    • Scorn
    • GRIMLOCK
    Deluxe wave 1:
    • New Bumblebee
    • Sqweeks
    • Barricade
    • Berzerker
    Deluxe wave 2:
    • Steelbane
    • Cogman
    • Drift
    • Crosshairs
    Deluxe wave 3:
    • TF4 Bumblebee
    • Slug
    • Strafe
    • Slash

    Wow, been a while since I've been in here. Nothing super special today and I know I'm not the first to do this, but you can totally give Barricade a little height boost by mistransforming his feet a bit, I think just that little bit helps him not be such a runt.

    Anyway, happy new year to everyone!

    Hi all,
    Was waiting on firage to come and be my movie figure number 10 but came across mudflap for €5. It’s not a bad figure, I jut don’t like the mechanisms involved in the backpack it’s quite irritating to be honest, but still a nice little figure. The gang is slowly coming together :)

    It's actually wonderful in person because he looks like he just got drunk and fell face-first into the wall haha.

    Is that the new KO version of Leadfoot?
