    I finally opened up my MP-03 today, keeping the Takara one sealed and was wondering what line he fits with? Obviously he can be scaled well with smaller figures such as the CHUG line. I'm wondering which line would best suit his size and scale compared to other vehicles. Would it be a mix & match from several lines? I would really like to know and also see pics of comparisons that seem to fit the scale. I do not have alot of figures with me now to do proper scaling myself.

    HE SCALES WITH THE MODERN MPS, ANYTHING AFTER MP10. I think with g1 he looks epic, but shows them all up.

    He falls under the TW Orion scale. Which is most CHUGs.

    Edit: Only if you want your Grimlock a little bigger than your Optimus Prime:) 
    If you're cool with him shorter than Prime then see above post.

    Most Classics, particularly if you use iGear's PP01 Faith Leader or ToyWorld's Orion as your Optimus. Throw in PP05 van brothers for more added fun.

    For MP's he's a bit too smal, unless you want to recapture the feel of the G1 toys: with both the G1 toys and the MP's, Optimus is a bit taller than Grimlock.


    Classics is such a mess with scale that it can fit anything. Grimlock would be (too) huge compared to all official CHUG Optimus figures, is just a bit oversized for TW Orion, and a very good size compared to iGear's Faith leader.

    I display him with the rest of my MPs (08-19) and I think he looks amazing. If you're a scale chart stickler, then he might bother you. The thing is, though, he was often drawn "leader" size in the cartoon, especially by season 3. Same with the comics. Error or not, it's enough justification for me. Also, MP-09's instructions show him interacting with Grimlock, repairing him with his welding torch, and, of course, MP-10's box photos famously show him interacting with MP-09, so there's that, too.

    Grimlock looks massive because of his kibble, huge arms and lower legs, but his thighs look really skinny if you display him next to MP-10 so I keep the two on separate shelves. He looks great with everyone else.

    I think he scales fine with Classics in dino mode. On the other hand, his bot mode easily towers over anything in Classics and he's about two heads or more shorter than Maketoys Giant combined if I recall.

    as you can see, everyone has their own position. imo, he's your toy, and he scales with anyone you want him to.

    take your pick.

    while i did have the first quakewave (shameless plug for self), that photo is not mine. it was from the scoria thread, i think its a store in JP. i just thought grimlock looked exceptionally well with scoria there, despite the complaints about scale.
