    I hope this qualifies as news, apologies (and please move) if not.

    These are mostly the same as seen before, but the bigger size/resolution give a better overview into the details.

    Mickey too:

    I'm quite impressed after seeing these. I didn't realize Grim's skinny dino-arms were that well articulated.


    Update: HOLY CRAP I BEEN FRONTPAGED!

    But it looks like the left one is, though.

    Right one probably isn't due to the lightup sword.

    Cool... looks like my suspicions were right about his hands. They appear to fold out from panels inside each dino leg/robot arm instead of popping out of the bottom like the G1 toy. That should help the dino feet look much more complete & solid. :)

    That light up sword is cool.

    If he is the size of MP Starscream then I won't be disappointed if he has the bulk.

    /agree

    My niece are both gonna love them. I can tell already.

    As for Grimlock... niiiice. The more detail we see the more I like it. I'm excited to see how they paint it.

    Also, it looks like the "brain hat" pic with OP confirms what a lot had said about the lower rez version of that pic, Grimlock is going to be as big as everyone had hoped. He will clearly tower over OP when standing on his feet and not sitting back.

    Too bad Grimlock is not updated, even a little bit. He looks too much like the dumb cartoon version. His dino upper chest is to long, this makes the robot wings to broad.
    I got to see it in color before I decide.

    I'm... oddly disappointed that the right hand isn't articulated. But that's mostly because I do a photocomic, and articulated hands are terrific for that purpose. But the left hand IS articulated, and the right certainly isn't just a block with a hole drilled in it.

    We obsess over the weirdest stuff, huh? :p 

    Aside from that, he looks... well, stunning. I think the concerns about his size are overblown... look at the shot with Optimus. His dino leg is approximately the size of a scout-class Transformer by itself... so I'd guess he might be slightly bigger than the MP Seekers, and certainly bulkier. The sword looks like it'll be a decent size (Not the stumpy thing we got with Alt Grimmy), and the Alt mode looks like it stepped out of the cartoon.

    I'm really looking forward to this guy now.

    Nice to see those pics bigger. Thanks for posting. That crown just seems silly to me but I like all the extras the MPs typically come with. In my head I'm saying undecided, but my wallet's already screaming cuz it knows I'm gonna buy it.

    For some reason that Mickey looks better and better. I'd get it if I liked Micky more, now if it was Donald or Bugs I'd be all over it

    Already sold on Grimmy. Still not sure about Mickey, never was a fan of the helium-infused rodent. I'm more of a Looney Tunes guy, myself.
