    In the original 86 movie Grimlock said "ME GRIMLOCK KICK ASS!!!". But I've never seen that again in any version & have never heard anybody speak of it. But I know for a fact it did happen because I remember saying that the movie is extra awesome because it had 2 swear words in it (I saw it 4 times in the theater) & I was totally shocked. But now all we have is "ME GRIMLOCK KICK BUTT".

    Is there any info on this? They completely took out the word shit & changed ass to butt. Then when fans complained they put shit back in but still left it as "butt". Will they ever release the real version that says "me Grimlock kick ass"?

    Dude, don't attempt to answer a question when you obviously don't have a clue what the hell you're talking about!


    Ah! Excellent! There are others that actually remember Grimlock saying "ass" not "butt". I'm willing to be there aren't many of us left but he DID say "KICK ASS"!

    I saw it in theater on opening day, and I remembered Spike saying "Shit! It isn't even dented!" The dialog in that clip just seems out of place. I also recall hearing Grimlock say "Me Grimlock kick ass!" but it was later changed to "butt."

    I don't believe i've ever heard of anyone seeing a version where Grimlock says 'kick ass' so I am going to go ahead and assume you just misheard it as a child.

    I saw it 4 times & went around telling everybody that he says ass. Everybody else that saw the movie in the theater heard him say it & not one person ever came back & said that I was mistaken. It was a huge deal back then, not something I might have made a mistake about. A cartoon movie with 2 cuss words, not something anybody would take lightly.

    I'm not asking if he said "ass", I'm telling you he said "ass". Guess only the studio has the original copy.

    Somebody out there who actually worked on the production knows what happened. It IS out there!

    Not saying you're wrong but I remember him saying "butt" when I saw it back in the day. Sorry I can't back up your claim.

    I've only ever seen the movie once, and that was about a year ago, and it was an old vhs copy of it.

    Sorry no ass, just butt. I have the unedited version and 20th anniversary edition. Only swear word there is "shit" by Spike when they are getting sucked in by Unicron.

    When I saw it on opening weekend back then, I don't remember the "Oh shit" line, but I do distinctly remember the "Me Grimlock kick ass" part.

    It was always butt. Never ass. The line with ass in it was never recorded.

    "oh shit" was only in the Canadian theatrical release. The DVD that recently came out is actually that version of it.

    I don't remember whether or not the "shit" line was in it when I saw it in the theater, but I do know grimlock said "butt". I've also NEVER seen a clip of that scene with "ass" as the line in the audio. I'm pretty sure there'd be one somewhere if it were true.
