    Just like the the title says....rank your favorite Grimlocks of all time. With the proto pics of MP Grimlock I figured this would be an interesting thread. Also, please try and post the reasons why you ranked them the way you did. It'll be interesting to read why boardmembers like each one.

    Here's my list:

    1.) Masterpiece Grimlock--A large, die-cast, awesome looking, G1-esque Grimlock with LED lights and interchangeable eye color. 'NUFF SAID.

    2.) Animated Grimlock--Took everything we loved about G1 grimlock and streamlined it into an ultra-slick, cool looking toy. Love the steam-shovel jaw in robot and dino modes.

    3.) Henkei Grimlock--The classics mold is well.....a classic. This one took the classics mold and added chrome-tastic awesomeness to it.

    4.) Classics Grimlock--This toy is an absolutely awesome update to the character.

    5.) G1 Grimlock--No list is complete without the original. This is one of the few G1 toys that was show-accurate.

    Thanks for posting!!!

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I actually really dig the Energon Grimmy. His bulky cartoony proportions just worked in both mode. Sure the "PowerLinx" gimmick was stupid and didn't work all that well, but for a two-pack guy with a simplistic transformation that was a great homage to his G1 granddaddy he wasn't bad at all.

    No-one can judge the Masterpiece Grimlock quite yet .... even with just that picture ..... True it may look really nice but does anyone really judge it before they hold it ?

    G1 Grimlock is the only incarnation of him I've ever really liked so far, honestly I think all Grimlocks since have been kinda bad and have been pretty disappointing. MP Grimlock is most likely going to top this string of disappointments but it's a little to far out to make that determination right now but it's probably going to happen.

    Edit: Sorry Alt Grimlock is the only other one I really liked as well.

    Sticking only with toys I actually own...

    1) Animated Grimlock - amazing toy. Damn near perfect in every respect.

    2) Alternators Grimlock - one of the coolest Alts ever made. Stands out even more since the remold was such a piece of crap.

    3) Classics Grimlock - a cool update of the G1 Pretender Grimlock. He has some shortcomings, but he's pretty cool overall. Much better than the ugly, chromed all to hell Henkei version.

    4) Armada-era Dinobots Grimlock - repaint of Dinobot. My first dinosaur Grimlock. Not great, but an okay toy overall.

    5) RiD Grimlock - weakest of the Build Team, by far.

    (not counting the big unknown of MP Grim yet...)

    1. Energon Grimlock (yes, really. Shut up!)
    2. Animated Grimlock
    3. G1 Grimlock
    4. Classics/Henkei Grimlock
    5. Alternators Grimlock

    Note: while I liked the toy before, my Energon Grimmy is 'value added', by kitbashing the superior head sculpt from the Classics toy onto his beefy frame, and swapping the forearms to improve his ability to hold weapons.

    Double-post-site-burp. That's OK, Energon Grimmy deserves an extra post. :D

    I don't think there are 5 good versions of Grimlock. That being said here goes

    1) Masterpiece Grimlock: This is pure speculation based on the few pics and details that exist. From what I've seen so far this is the one to get.

    2) G1 Grimlock: For a G1 toy Grimlock wasn't half bad!

    3) TFA Grimlock: For an animated toy it pays allot of respect to the G1 Grimlock.

    4) BT Grimlock: Doesn't really feel like Grimlock but does the job at the same time.

    There really aren't any other Grimlock molds I care for. I have the Classics and WW Titanium and don't really care for either, although the later is far better then the Classics.
