Will FOC Grimlock ever appear in the Generations toyline at all?

    Since I've heard the new of FOC Bruticus and the Combaticons being the Generations toyline it was both exciting and a little worried at the same time. The reason I'm worried is because this may mean that FOC Grimlock may not be in the Generations line after all!

    He's the chacter I'm so looking foward to playing in the FOC game and I wished that he gets his own toy too! I really hope that there are SOME plans of making a FOC Grimlcok figure becuase he's the one character from the game that I really want to see him be made as a toy.

    So what are your thougths? Are you as worried as I am or not too worried?

    I am not worried at all, Grimlock will get a toy I'm sure,

    To be honest I'm more bothered about the other dinobots, Grimlock has had a classics toy AND a Masterpiece, Swoop, Slug, Snarl and Sludge have had very little in comparison.

    Since Grimlock is a T-Rex in the game, would Hasbro just reissue Classics Grimlock on a Generations card? Maybe with a few extra paint apps?

    After what we've learned today, anything is possible. I personally will be surprised if we don't get a Grimlock figure.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they fenagle Grimlock into the RID line as a... 'Powerizer.'

    Considering his HEAVY use in just about all the FoC advertising, it's doubful he WON'T get a toy.

    This is a curious turn of events. Hasbro said that there would be 8 Generations figures. FoC has filled all the slots. Jazz, Shockwave, Optimus, 5 Combaticons. I thought I read the Grimlock would get a figure. I am curious to see how this plays out and if they will be released all near the same time or scattered throughout the year. This could end ugly with Hasbro's current distribution issues.

    But this year is definitely looking awesome so far.

    I too am bothered that the rest of the FOC Dinobots won't appear in the Generations toyline! :redface2: 

    Let's hope that Hasbro finally lets up and brings the rest of the FOC Dinobots into the Generations toyline! :redface2:

    That would be a sweet promotion. Combaticons vs Dinobots with figures.

    I'm just glad we are getting a Bruticus, anything else is gravy.

    So did Starscream in the first game (I think, correct me if I'm wrong), but he didn't get a toy (besides the exclusive Cybertron Legends repaint).

    More likely so.

    Hopefully the rest of the Dinobot follow so.

    Bots almost always outnumber the Cons, or at the very least are equal in number. Currently, the Cons outnumber the Bots 2-to-1, so I'd imagine more bots are on the way.

    That 8 number we got may just have been what the UK was getting and not the entire line. Or perhaps the whole Combaticon team counts as 1 (Bruticus) and/or perhaps will be sold as a giftset and the 8 is just about the main line.

    Or, just throwing it out there, maybe they meant that at least eight have been confirmed thus far?

    Let's hope so.

    Starscream didn't get heavy promotion.
