    Picked up Grindor on impulse after finding Long Haul.

    To those who have the mold it is a direct repaint of the Premium Blackout.

    Alt mode

    Alt mode is solid with no looseness and everything lines up properly(some of the other versions tended to not connect properly)

    colors are a light grey and black deco.

    Bot mode

    bot mode is a decent colorscheme with light grey,black and some gold highlights.

    overall a good bot mode with nice real life colors.(no allspark blue)

    Scorpinok

    I really love this scorpinok compared to previous versions.

    A silver and black scheme with a dash of red make him look evil(nearly identical to the new deluxe Stalker Scorpinok)

    If you like the mold i recommend him but if the previous versions were a pass skip it.

    This version is a perfect base for a Vortex with easilly dyeable plastic and a soft color.

    comparisons

    All 5 versions

    And the three main ones

    Thanks! I was just curious!

    PS: Did it require any modding for Prime's gun to fit over BB's?

    Hmm, he looks really nice, but I'm bummed he's the exact same as Blackout, only painted differently. Everything is the same. Still might pick him up though, just for the cool new Scorponok repaint. Thanks for the pics!

    Grindor looks better than I thought it would. I saw a pic of it in box that made it look tan for some reason.

    Nicer than Blackout, but not nice enough to buy twice.

    Looks cool, dig the colors. Stinks that there's no remolding at all, or he might've been a must buy. Still might pick him up on sale or as an impulse buy.

    I'm liking the new color scheme on him. I think i'll pick it up if I see it, still debating on whether to get Whirl/ bludgeon as well.

    Blackout could...and since this mold is the exact same...

    I'll leave you to figure out the rest.

    I didn't mean his whole back assembly as a weapon.

    Just the tail itself, after the scorponok cage joint. Someone posted a pic of Grindor on /toy/ a month or so ago (and I stupidly didn't save it), so it could have been a mod.
