    So I just got back from a trip to the UK. Visited the sites, etc namely the free ones aka the museums. While I was there, I checked out their elaborate collection of dinosaur fossils cause everyone loves dinosaurs =P Anyway, towards the end of the exhibit, there was a small little case with dinosaur toys in it for display purposes of course. And to my surprise Grimlock was there! Here are a couple pics of it in the case + another pic nearby part of a poster.

    In Rochester New York there's the Strong Museum of play.
    Strong National Museum of Play

    In it there's toys on display dating back over 100 years.

    There are 2 displays with Transformers.I wont say its an impresive display but its still pretty cool.

    Back in 86, I went to the LA Museum of Science and Industry and they were selling G1 Jetfire in the gift shop. I always thought that was cool.

    I think it's been there for a while, I remember my brother telling me that he saw Grimlock at the museum a few years back. I haven't seen it in person though so thanks for the pics!

    I've always thought that's where he could get it from if the put him in TF2.

    But wow, Grim in a museum! That's cool. I wonder if any zoo's back in the days would sell Beast Wars.

    Did y'all notice he's got an Autobot sticker on his hindquarter instead of a rub-up symbol? Bet that's worth something.

    Somehow I think we just solved the Dinobot problem in the next movie...
    Big bot, scans a tiny toy, since he's rather slow...
    That makes one big G1 movie Grimmy. xD
