    I don't understand this. Almost ALL of the media coverage concerning this game has ''Space trex mgz''! And we are getting a optimus, Jazz, Shockwave, the combaticons, And a bunch of others, BUT. NO. GRIMLOCK.

    Why hasn't Hasbro at least announced these is one planned? Wouldn't they want the figure released when the game is out? Now, a lot of people think that Hasbro will definitely release one, they would be stupid not to. But, after reading about how Hasbro were going to retire the Dinobots, I really wouldn't be suprpised if we don't get one. It's just sad.

    Grimlock just hasn't been announced. It's been suggested by Hasbro HK earlier this year. Calm down, poppet.

    SDCC.

    I can almost guarantee you a Deluxe or Voyager Grimlock will be announced.

    They weren't going to "retire" them or whatever such nonsense was made up for that article. They simply wanted to come of with a reason for their existence.

    Considering he's only in one level that we know of, he may not be worth the effort.

    True, but didn't Hasbro drop in their profits last quarter? Seems to me given the popularity of the Dinobots, that Hasbro would be missing a golden opportunity to make a nice profit from the FOC toyline, specifically the Dinobots. Especially considering there are thousands of store pegs holding rotting carcasses of Bumblebee figures that will be clearanced for next to nothing in the near future. If Hasbro never broadens it's scope on TF's beyond Optimus and Bumblebee, the third parties will flood the market to fill in the gaps. Just look at the buzz created by the TFC/Maketoys Devastator projects.

    I'd like to be optimistic, but Hasbro hasn't given me any reason to be as of late. I'll be ecstatic to get some modern Dinobots, but I won't be holding my breath.

    If they make all the Dinobots, then they'd probably be deluxes. I just don't see them making them all as Voyagers. I could be wrong... and I hope I am.

    YOUR Voyager FOC Grimlock? Hasbro stupid?

    Slightly impartiality deficit there.



    ...Which is to their credit. They could've just thrown a list of G1 homages at High Moon, and left it at that.

    Hasbro took a drop last quarter because unless you show 4% growth each year you're considered to not be doing well, that's capitalism. The truth is, after a billion dollar movie, with two rest years (2012 and 2013), profits will dip a bit, but it's all good gravy for 2014. It's the Bumblebees and Optimus' that the collectors protest against that have driven the rise in sales in 2007, 2009 and 2011, thanks to the Bay franchise.

    Yea we should be getting one we havent had much dinobot love recently but this doesnt mean they should make a grimlock...

    Also think if its possible to make a grimlock and if it will work when transforming.

    I would not mind a deluxe grimlock either

    I'm not sure what the hold up is. I can't imagine them NOT making it. Grimlock is practically one of the stars of the game, has an awesome alt mode, etc.

    What's weird is that IIRC Soundwave and Soundblaster make up the (first/only) voyager wave, a toy debuting along with a its redeco in the same wave is weird.

    unfortunately you're right. if Grimlock is made, Hasbro will have done every thing they can to make it work. even if that means making his transformation weird and making him a Kibble-saurus Rex. excuse me, a SPACE Kibble-saurus Rex

    If Hasbro or Takara fail to do this, either a 3rd party needs jump on it fast or I'm going to have to spend over a thousand to commission these guys. Voyager dinobots who look like the FOC dinobots deserve to be made..

    Grimlock IS going to get a release. It's only a matter of time. I'm hoping that we get all 5 Dinobots this time though.
