I have to agree. I really was never too impressed with him, as his proportions seems a slightly bit off to me. And also that his weapons seem meager compared to his on screen counterpart's.

At the same time, I really don't think it's all that bad. Perhaps he'll have that "once in-hand" type of turnabout some figures give. So I would the very least give the figure a chance.

I do like the fact that he is a Voyager that towers. And not that it needed to be an ultra figure to do so. That too me is a plus.

well i do want this figure but i do wish his arms where a touch longer, and the figure doesnt appear to be so hollow either. just hope australia is getting a release of this figure.

Here he is from the front in G1 T-Rex stance

Here he is in modern T-Rex stance

And just for icing on the cake, here he is showing Starscream who's King.

Thanks for the review

Could help in the future not to take pics with the camera pointing towards sunny Windows.

I think this is a clearance buy for me. Something about the legs just REALLY looks like crapload to me. Mabye the gigantic knee cap, or the curvy toe...just looks horrible. Dino mode is so compromised it looks bad. Any way you slice it, that tail looks horrible.

I'm not remotely interested in this one, but my son prolly would be. I think I'd rather have an animated grimlock.
15 minute job to fix your blitzwing arms so they lock in how they should from the factory.

If they repaint him in G2 blue I'll get him since that was my first TF, but otherwise this figure looks just meh. Not horribly bad, just not "go get it NOW" exciting.
Doesn't help he's not that different from other Grimlocks other than aesthetics and a light gimmick.

I'll get it if I see it, but if this becomes one of those hard to get scalper-bait toys, then I'll pass.
