    Takara seem quite happy to reject cartoon-accuracy for G1-inspired accuracy, it's a shame they still can't move on from there. I'm getting really tired of everything being G1 coloured.

    That thing is just plain nasty. Takara continues to show their complete inability to handle this line.

    Also, why does he look so much bigger than the US voyager in some of those shots?

    Maybe it's just the photo, but it looks almost too bright and colorful

    (and for a toy of a cartoon, that's saying something. :)  )

    P.S. Looking at it again, it's pretty obvious the yellow is what's throwing me off, compared to the nice rich coppery gold of the Hasbro toy.

    heck, i found the orange tail/claws of the original rather distracting, seemed they should have been painted with the gold metallic paint but the extra colours on the takara version look really bad together. Sometimes i just wonder who gives the final thumbs up to these products? the hasbro version looks way better than the takara one, a big let down.

    These pictures are so confusing and misleading, first I thought he was to big then I saw the classics grimlock, now he is to small.

    I like it. The red pops nicely. Will look good on the Grimlock shelf.

    I kinda like this Grimlock. I don't like him enough to import him for 40 bucks after shipping but it is nice.

    The takara repaints are hit and miss. Starscream was terrible, but I really like this Grimlock a lot. The colors really pop.

    I'm digging the contrasts on the Grimlock. Depending on import prices when he gets released, I might pick him up.

    Not terribly impressed. I like a lot of the other autobots though, even if they aren't very show accurate.

    I guess they are trying to give collectors a reason to buy these Animated figures again by making them different

    This is the one I was looking forward to most, and I have to say I'm a little disappointed. I was thinking this figure would have looked fantastic in a full, metallic paint job. I do have to agree, though, that the colors are fairly striking. Like most figures, he'll probably look better in person, and I'll probably end up getting him just because he's Grimlock.

    I was hoping for a metallic paint job on this one.
