PCC: Grimstone

Hmm, can't seem to find a non-video review of this guy. Though I'm sure somebody else has already done one, so feel free to move this. Anyways...

My take on Grimstone.

Nice review! I'm just waiting for these sets to come out in Canada. They look seriously cool.

Great, informative review and nice pictures. Do you know if they improved the stability of the connections in the new wave of PCCs? I heard that previous waves had arms and legs popping off and flying everywhere due to loose connectors.

Yeah, go for the newer PCC. The Combaticons and Aerialbots sets are pretty unstable.

Destructicons is stable and the drones are neat, but Mudslinger is a pretty weak toy. Don't have the Rallybots, so no comment.

Constructicons and Dinobots are great though. Also, Constructicons have THUMBS, which is awesome. And the driller arm even has an articulated wrist. The excavator arm is meh except for the thumb though.

These guys are super cool, but I have to say that the bio on Grimstone is pretty weak for a dinobot. He's basically SG Slag/Snarl, imho.

Probably the most cohesive 5-pack theme yet, as other have noted. For all that Grimstone is neat and solid....I'm torn. It's a shame, really, that there's currently no sign of another core figure that this dude's drones will look good on.

Or a Decepticon, but good. Sledgehammer's bio is pretty funny though. He says that he knows there's another combiner team out there with the same name as his. Energon Constructicon Maximus maybe?

Who knows, maybe we'll get a Predaking set in future? Or a Beast Wars one. That would be pretty neat.
