    Another new gallery, this time courtesy of yours truly:

    TFW Reveal the Shield Solar Storm Grappel Toy Gallery

    Grappel (or Grapple for the G1 fans) is really well done. The remolds make him feel like less of a reuse of the Inferno mold, and the fact you have some remolding so he can take the clip system weapons helps loads.

    He is a brilliant toy, and well worth picking up.

    Make sure you get Lugnut too though - he's another awesome toy.

    Would have looked way cooler if the boom arm came over his shoulder. Nice to see our galleries building up.

    Can't wait to get Grapple. Hope he shows up soon. Where can I get that gun and those missile launchers to arm him with?

    Looks nice. Looks like a buyer unless if United gives back Grapple's Chrome Hook and brighter paint apps.

    I love that they remolded a few parts to help differentiate it from Inferno. Your efforts won't go unnoticed Hasbro! High Fives all around!

    Looks great, still not sure if I want the United version or this one. Might get both, one as Hauler will be my excuse.
    I want the orginal version of this mold as Hot Spot/Hot Zone now, please Hasbro/Takara? :)

    He's one to a case on the Deep Dive assortment, I can't say for sure on the Strafe assortment.

    To my eye the bars look chunkier on Grappel. Inferno's are too narrow to get a good lock on with a C-Clip

    I tested it. The bars are thicker on Grapple. I put the same weapons on Inferno, they don't clip in just sit over the rungs and fall right off if you move him. On Grapple, they're solid, you could pick him up and shake him and they'd not come off.

    Well that settles his color then. I used to be worried that he's actually yellow instead of orange, but he looks only a shade off from G1 Grapple. RTS version for me all the way.
