    I read a while ago about a possible Grimlock Masterpiece figure. There was a silhouete on some website that hinted at him being the next one. Anyone heard anything more concrete or know when we might expect news?

    It would be nice to get a new mould now that we've been through all the Seekers and Ultra Magnus twice.

    After Thundercracker we are getting a Grimlock, but after that, no idea. I personally hope that Hasbro at least brings over Grimlock. More Dinobots would be awesome, but I'm not sure I'd buy 5 MP figures. Cosmos, or a War Within Starscream would be awesome, imo.

    Yea, Grimlock was confirmed by the MP designer at botcon right. After that I am hoping for a Soundwave.

    Its far fetched, but I'd love for a Inferno/Grapple MP. They're Alt modes are too big for ALternators so they would be perfect for the MP line.

    I really hope that it is indeed true that Grimlock is next in the Masterpiece line and he better be as tall if not taller than Prime/Convoy & Megatron :)  After him I would love to see Galvatron & Rodimus Prime.

    Aye, this is true, altho it wasn't an official confirmation; I believe it was more of an offhand remark during conversation. Still, I hope it was a genuine answer, not just a glib response, or an answer taken out of context. A good MP Grimlock would kick all kinds of arse.

    Other than that, there's been no further word on what the post-Thundercracker MPs will be.

    Thundercracker first, then Grimlock.


    Could they repaint Grimlock into anyone?

    I wouldn't be suprised if it's Sunstorm or maybe one of the Coneheads retooled form the MP Seeker mold, It's cost effective & people will still buy it.

    G2 Grimlock would actually make a nice repaint, imo, but other than that there really isn't any repaint value in him, unless they were to do a realistic T-rex deco on him like they did with Screamer before or after making a G1 accurate deco of him.

    a Takara rep did say Thundercracker and Grimlock are being planned. and Thundercracker was officially confirmed not to long ago so Grimlock will sure to follow. *crosses fingers*

    Grimlock as a Masterpiece just sounds Fantastic.

    Is a repaint necessary? Masterpiece Megatron was made to be only Megatron, so why would Grimlock need to have a repaint to be made. Of course Takara could do a Black Megatron repaint and a G2 Grimlock repaint.

    If they do Grimlock it would be cool if they added some LEDs for the Dino mode eyes or in his mouth... Oh and it would also be nice if they did do a LED light up gimick like on Prime & Megs how about an actual on/off switch instead of having to hold down the button.

    I'd love to see MP Soundwave - with him we'd be getting awfully close to all the 1st series season one Decepticons as masterpieces.

    Personally I think it'd look pretty cool. As long as they released a G1 colored version I think most people would be happy. I wouldn't buy a realistic colored MP Grimlock, as I'd be happy with just one, but it would be interesting to see. If I got one as a gift however, I would then seriously consider buying the other one.

    Takara will do Grimlock eventually it seems, no clue if it'll come stateside, though it seems likely.


    I'm all for Devastator too. xD Or Soundwave with deluxe cassettes, or Prowl for more repaints. Ironhide for ditto. >.> Galvatron would be perfect though.
