    I had bought a Classics Grimlock off a fellow board member, but as they seem to be extremely hard to find, and my third son is a Dinosaur nut and has been asking for one for Christmas since he first saw pictures on line, that one was for him.

    I pretty much accepted the fact that I would never find one for myself after reading about future waves and such, but today, I was at Target doing some last minute Christmas shopping when I see one sitting on the pegs in a sea of Classics Mirages!!!

    Did I luck out or what!

    Awesome, DC!! I haven't opened mine yet, but I'm on the lookout for a 2nd one so I can tear that base-tard open.

    So, do you have to buy identical toys for each of the kids to keep them from fighting over stuff? That usually seemed to work for us.

    Its the "ME" party: 1000th post :rock  :music  :rock

    No, they all have different tastes in toys so it works out well.

    I found two Grimlocks a few days ago at Wal-Mart. Picked one up for me and one for a board member. Awesome figure!

    I opened my Classics Grimlock yesterday and is now displayed along with G1 Grimlock, just like Hot Rod and Rodimus. I think it's very cool to put the Classics with G1 toys together. Makes you appreciate the advance in technology that much more. :)

    I got one today too. Definitly my favorite classics figure so far. But I don't have Jetfire yet, so that may change.

    Man, Hasbro should put more of this guy out...I know I sound like a broken down record but a robot dino that transforms into a robot is a sure winner! Especially one that has a T-Rex as an alternate mode!

    I was in the exact same boat - my (soon to be) 6 year old loves dinos and TFs and wanted this one ever since he saw the first pics. I started to get desperate. I began asking board members but found one. I was happy enough with that and last week stumbled across another while doing some x-mas shopping so I bought it for myself.
