    I have a chance to get a

    PVC Grimlock Metallic with head gear
    or
    Grimlock PALISADES Statue in Dino form new in box, most expensive of the 3
    or
    Prehistoric Brown Knockoff Grimlock cheapest of the 3

    They are different prices cause they arn't worth as much as each other, but I can only afford one right now.

    So which is the rarest, which won't I see again for a while?

    Must say I've never seen that brown Prehistoric one... ever.

    But I do like all three pieces and it would be hard for me to choose.

    If I had the cash I'd go for the statue.

    The company that made "Prehistory" Grimlock as he is being called also made the infamous "Winged-Sludge" figure Im sure most of us have seen. Im pretty sure it may have been Five-Star; they had some *nice* Insecticon retools.

    The Palisades statue is awesome, until you get to the end of that tail... bleh. It's not particularly rare.

    Depending on its condition, I think the Prehistory Animals KO is the way to go, but I know absolutely nothing about that Grimlock PVC.

    Hey I got this winged sludge as well with diecast yellow chest. There is one out there with red diecast chest as well. I also have a made in taiwan sludge with a resculpted head and extra legs. Its cheaper plastic quality but is cool in its own right. I believe its from the set with a grimlock godzilla like toy. But anyway I might be willing to part with my sludge kO's if anyone is interested.

    Also does anyone know of anyone with this figure: trasnforming stego
    I have it in 2 colors and have seen it in the colors shown on the package of the one.

    that above grimlock looks really f'ing cool. based on the prehistory KO, but something about the transparent plastic color just makes me want it.

    I think the stego is from the same KO line that the "dinocock prime' is from.

    I was gonna vote for the Palisades statue, then the photos finished loading. Dang, that Prehistoric Grimlock is COOL! I'd go for it!

    I've got the yellow chested winged Sludge, anybody want it? I bought it thinking it was super rare, just to find out it's only slightly rare.

    I gotta go against the grain and say the first one, the grimmy with the headgear. With the gear he'd definitely belong on my technobot shelves. Very cool stuff.

    Did you win? Saw the Prehistoric Grimmy go on eBay for $61 plus shippping... I'd say thats easily higher than a loose G1 Grimlock.
