    I was browsing thorough some pictures, then I saw the resemblances.

    It just look like they used the WFC Grimlock model and turn it into FOC Optimus. The transformation look almost the same as well. Replace the threads with wheels. On Grimlock, the front threads are attached to the shoulders, while on Optimus, the wheel goes to the back. Other than that, everything looks the same to me.

    So, who's going to try customise the deluxe FOC Optimus into WFC Grimlock. Yes, I know many people would not accept Grimlock not being a dinosaur based. But I'm not from that generation. The idea just seems interesting to me.

    I don't know, to me they don't look alike at all in either form.

    Except for the fact they both have a large chest and both transform into ground based vehicles, I see absolutely no similarity between them. They look almost nothing alike. I can't see anything that would make me look at one and think of the other.

    Aside from the way the front of the vehicle angles down, I see no similarities between the two, and even if their were, Grimlock makes them look way better :cool:

    Looking at this, i wouldnt mind FOC prime being the default mold with grimlock taking over primes WFC mold.

    I kinda see it. They have similar builds and it looks like their transformations into vehicle mode might be similar. It looks a tiny (very tiny) bit like Optimus is a simplified version of Grimlock with new colours, a new head and a different placement of arms in vehicle mode.

    I don't see a resemblance at all. Different artist, different aesthetics, different goals, different characters...

    I was thinking in terms of transformation scheme and structure. Things like this character would have a possible toy version. How to transform this character realistically. When WFC came out, I ponder on the Grimlock design, and couldn't find a way on how to transform him. When the deluxe FOC Optimus came out, it sheds light on me how to transform WFC DS Grimlock.

    What you call resemblance is just a similar styling that everyone of High Moon Studios designs for Transformers have. An actual resemblance is nowhere to be seen here.

    OP that's like saying the Titanic and the Concorde look the same because they're both vehicles.

    I think that all cars looks the same to me, its just a car. A van would look different, but then, all van looks the same. Its just my perspective. Perhaps I should have posted this on a different thread?

    The arms, legs and shoulders look the same. And nee-pads look similar.

    If you flattened Grimlock's body (take out the spikes) you can see the similarity.

    The only thing that is pretty close is the shoulders
