We'll kick off our 2013 gallery updates with a new toy of a character who is very dear to me - Grimlock! Fall of Cybertron Grimlock is another one of those toys who occupies a happy medium between lines, blending with Classics, Fall of Cybertron or even Prime with varying degrees of success, and beyond all that, he's just plain awesome. He's tall in robot mode and imposing in dinosaur mode, with a gimmick that makes sense for the character and that does not get in the way of the rest of the toy's operation. Excellent poseability in robot mode is the icing on the cake. Some fans were disappointed that the original Classics Grimlock was, in their eyes, not a worthy update to Grimlock, well, thanks to Fall of Cybertron we now have a Grimlock who is a lot closer to the Generation 1 original, and nice and big to go with it.
What we have for you here is a nice extensive gallery showcasing Grimlock's dinosaur and robot modes, along with comparisons with previous Grimlocks and a selection of images showing how Grimlock fits in with other Fall of Cybertron toys, with other Classics series characters, and with Transformers Prime characters too, given that this version of Grimlock is presently playing a leading role in the Transformers Prime continuity "Rage of the Dinobots" comic.
All in all, Fall of Cybertron Grimlock is a toy that I cannot recommend enough. He's not flawless, but he is the best non-masterpiece version of Grimlock that we have had. The fact he can fit in with most collection displays is a true bonus.

Wow Grimlock looks awesome! Great pictures too, makes me want to buy him now
Have to say seeing pictures of this toy side by side with the original classics Grimlock really make that toy look dated and awful on retrospect.

Nice! Grimlock's looking awesome there.
Interested in anything to do with voice-acting? Look no further than Behind the Voice Actors!
