    I gotta admit...when I first got WST Snarl from JUSTIToys, I wasn't exactly psyched.

    I attribute this mostly to the fact that I never owned an original G1 Snarl.

    Nonetheless, I ordered Grimlock and Slag, and once the three were together, it was like the 80's all over again. I haven't seen many threads posted about the tiny terrors, but they rock. I've spent a little bit of time this evening photographing them, and I hope you enjoy the pics!

    I'll review certain aspects as I post the pictures...

    The plastic that they are made out of is not cheap...unlike some other non-Takara Transformers related products. The plastic is definitely up to par with the other World's Smallest Transformers. The chrome is excellent, and (knock on wood) as rough as I have been with them, and as many times as I have transformed each of them, has not chipped.

    Here is a comparison with the original Grimlock...size-wise he's not as small as I would have liked, but the amount of detail that they included is incredible. Every panel line is at least represented. It may not be identical, but its there. Something I actually like about the WST Grimlock, is that they actually added a little more detail to a few sections...like the chest in dinosaur mode, and the sides of the rear section.

    I chose not to add the stickers...even though thats the best part of G1 toys. I think they look great as-is.

    Again, something I'm a little unhappy with is the size of the dinobots in comparison to other WST...but in all honesty...thinking about their alternative modes...these sizes are actually pretty close to scale (I think...)

    I know with the WST Dinobots they went for a cartoon-accurate look. hence the blue eyes.

    Here is THS-02 Convoy with Grimlock...now thats a good pet T-Rex...so well behaved!

    Grimlock excited about going to the park! Optimus figured he needed some time out in the open...he's gotta lose some weight, and gain some muscle for his Classics Premier!

    Those pics really made me smile. Thanks for posting! I especially like the line up of all the WST alt modes, and the sequence with WST Grimlock and Alt Grimlock. Very cute!

    And yeah, these WST dinobots are all kinds of awesome. They are so high-quality, and really do feel just like the original toys.

    I just noticed that the eye color is different between the WSTF and regular grimmy.
