Notable Cartoon Moments
Pre-movie: Grimlock mostly caused a lot of strife early on in the cartoon often rebelling against Prime over his compassion for the human?s plight. This came to a head in War of the Dinobots when Grimlock, Slag and Sludge captured and held Optimus Prime captive. It wasn?t until Prime saved Grimlock?s life that Grimlock realized the Autobots were friends.
Post-movie: Post-movie Grimlock?s intelligence severely regressed. However, in Grimlock?s New Brain he suddenly became smart while investigating Cybertronian tunnels. While in Unicron?s head, Grimlock created the Technobots (who merge into the gestalt Computron). He donated his newfound intelligence to his creation and went back to being stupid.

Alternate Mode: Tyrannosaurus Rex
Colors: Grey dino head with red eyes and grey teeth. Transparent smoky plastic neck with gold molding inside. Grey dino chest with silver chrome dino arms. Grey dino back and upper half of tail. Lower half of tail is silver chrome. Dino legs are grey with gold chrome toes (2 front, 1 back). Dino stomach is gold chrome. One area is transparent plastic. His Diaclone cockpit is on his back and is the smoky plastic.
Stickers: A bunch of stickers which represent his circuitry, takes away from the overall look a bit.

Grimlock?s probably the most popular of all the Dinobots (wasn?t mine but I think I?m in the minority). He got a lot of exposure in the cartoon pre and post movie (the only Dinobot really seen post-movie). Although after the movie, they portrayed him as an idiot only there for comedic relief.

Grimlock?s T-Rex mode is on point with relatively accurate proportions. The tail could have been a little longer but that?s being very nitpicky. The first thing you notice about Grimlock is the T-Rex head which is just as ferocious and menacing as you?d expect and desire. Especially with the teeth! The forearms are small and stubby with two digits like actual T-Rexes. Like the predominant theory in 1985, Grimlock was designed to be a tail-dragger. However, due to his articulation, you can pose him according to the new modern theory that T-Rexes run tilted forwards with their tail in the air.

He?s predominantly Dinobot grey. It?s a nice imitation of the leathery grey color you would expect a dinosaur to have yet with a smooth texture akin to a robot in disguise. There?s some chrome namely used for the neck (gold and within the translucent smoky plastic), stomach (gold), toes (gold), tail (silver) and arms (silver). When the chrome?s in good condition, it?s a nice striking contrast to the grey that?s found elsewhere. I personally think Grimlock?s got a few too many stickers in this mode. All the ?circuitry? takes away a little from the overall look.

Grimlock has some nice articulation for a 1985 figure. The head swivels from 0-45 degrees. The jaws open pretty wide and almost perpendicularly. Inside the mouth is a molded laser/blaster which is a nice little detail. There?s also a lot of molding detail on his face which adds a lot of character.

The dino arms rotate 360 degrees. They?re kinked at the elbow so that the arms are perpendicular. There?s no elbow articulation so you?re stuck in that ?I?m coming to tackle you? pose. The hips also rotate 360 degrees which gives you a little bit of freedom when posing him as I mentioned before either as a tail-dragger or tilted runner. Finally he has toe articulation as they can swivel from 0-90 degrees.

Show accuracy is pretty good here. Cartoon Grimlock had blue eyes. No other glaring differences. None of his accessories can be attached to this mode unlike Slag, Snarl and Swoop.

Buyer?s Beware: Grimlock is pretty sturdy. As mentioned above, there is a lot of chrome so obviously chrome-wear is a big issue. There aren?t any glaring weaknesses to this mold as there are with the other Dinobots. Legs may be a little loose especially at the ankle area (since the feet slide up to reveal his fist). On some toys the resistance just isn?t there to keep it from sliding up. Otherwise, Grimlock?s connected via many tabs (you?ll notice this in the transformation process), this doesn?t affect things too much in the dino mode but can in the robot mode. Sometimes they break although it?s generally not a problem in either mode transformation wise?sometimes it leads to a little looseness. Tabs connect the dino neck to the dino torso, hold together the halves of the dino torso, keep the dino/bot chest in place in both modes, and hold together the dino tail. The tail tabs may be the only problem in this mode as they tend to split.

Alternate Mode Rating: 10

The best dinosaur Dinobot mode by far! Easily the most articulated Dinobot in dinosaur mode; there just aren?t many flaws to Grimlock?s T-Rex mode. Since most fans display the Dinobots in dino mode, this is obviously a huge plus. With his mouth open and his jagged teeth on display, Grimlock makes for the most intimidating and fierce Dinobot. The proportions are in relatively in check and the detail to his dino head is superb. The gold chrome really adds to the overall look and separates him as the commanding Autobot.

Transformation to robot mode:
Flip his dino head back and then open up his dino chest splitting it in half. Split the tail apart perpendicular to their original position. Gently swing his dino belly up to form his robot chest. Flip the legs out inverting them to form his legs (dino tail should be around his robot knees). Split the legs pushing them out and up to reveal his waist. Slide his dino feet up to form his wrists and to reveal the fists.

Robot Mode:
Colors: Mostly grey, gold and black. Grimlock in robot mode has a black head with a red eye visor. The bot chest is gold (dino stomach) and a nod to his rank as Dinobot commander no doubt. Shoulders and arms are grey, fists are black. Waist is red while hips and upper half of legs are black. Lower half of legs are grey.
Stickers: A bunch and again, I?m not too fond of them.

Grimlock?s very show accurate. They unfortunately couldn?t find a way to hide his tail so the halves just hang off his knees. Besides that, the only difference really is his red eye visor which is blue in the cartoon.

As what seems to be par for the Dinobots course, Grimlock?s head seems a tad small for his body. Overall the sculpt is nice, it?s just small. Due to the transformation process, his head also is set too far back on his chest. From both the side and the front, it?s just not realistic and an eyesore. It?s very glaring in respect to depth perception as his head?s set back about 4 inches from the end of his robot chest.

His shoulders are a bit large and his arms seem a tad long if you stand him at attention. Grimlock looks a bit like a mutated bodybuilder although to a lesser extent than Snarl. The waist and hips seem to be well proportioned, it?s just his upper body is just large. His thighs are pencil like but his lower legs are set up nicely as they widen from his ankles to his feet.

They had a tough time trying to hide pieces of his T-Rex mode in alternate mode. The dino head just flips back and rests on his back. The ?wings? (halves of his dino chest) fold out and his dino arms just sit there. This makes his upper back (from a side view) about half the size of his upper chest. His dino nails frame his fists and as I mentioned before, the halves of his dino tail just hang by his kneecaps. It?s hard to imagine how they would hide the aspects of his dino mode since I?m no engineer?but it would have been nice if they had done a little better.

All the articulation that Grimlock had in dino mode is lost in robot mode. You can rotate his arms at the shoulders and bend his knees (although that doesn?t generate any more degrees of poseability).

Grimlock comes equipped with a sword (Energo), Gun (Twin Stunner Lasers) and Rocket Launcher (Galaxial).

Buyer?s Beware: Again, watch out for the tabs which may be broken, generally not a big problem except for slight looseness. His bot arms can also be loose, sometimes not able to hold a pose. Hips may also tend to be slightly loose. You?ll see more scratches on the gold chest due to the transformation process ? swiveling up and down/connecting the tabs. Chrome wear is also an issue.

Robot Mode Rating: 7

Grimlock?s a solid average in robot mode. Nothing sets him over the top but nothing really stands out to drop him.

Overall Rating: 8.5 (solo) 10 (with other Dinobots)

Grimlock comes in a close second to Swoop in terms of the best Dinobot toy. The dinosaur mode really carries him and I?m assuming that?s the mode most people will display him in. He?s much more durable than Swoop however his robot mode just doesn?t compare.

Grimlock?s the second most expensive Dinobot and can command $65-70 complete in c9 shape. At that tag, it?s hard to recommend him individually but like I said before, it?s much cheaper to pick up the Dinobots as a set.

He?s a great figure although I?m weighing the T-Rex mode a bit heavier than the robot mode because I?m assuming that?s what will attract most buyers. Like I said, there are no major flaws in robot mode but there?s nothing that really stands out and grabs you either.

Grimlock?s transformation isn?t too complicated. It leaves you wanting a tad bit more as it?s mostly just splitting and repositioning parts. The relatively high articulation of the T-Rex mode is a nice plus (since most G1 toys have about no articulation).

I think the Dinobots are a tad overpriced overall but that?s been the case with G1 toys (especially ones that have yet to be reissued and most likely won?t be). Again, I recommend buying them as a set to make them a bit more affordable but if you?re planning on only getting one of them, Grimlock may be your best bet.(since Swoop is so darn expensive and fragile).

Grimlock Cartoon / Movie Information

Info about Grimlock in the Transformers cartoons or movies.
Voice Actor Gregg Berger

Cartoon Overview
Grimlock was one of the original three Dinobots, constructed by Wheeljack after an earthquake exposed some dinosaur bones in a chamber adjacent to the Ark. Initially, they were too unpredictable to be controlled, so Optimus ordered them sealed away, but when the rest of the Autobots were taken prisoner by Megatron, the Dinobots were reactivated, and fixed to be less unstable, although they remained rebellious. In fact, in War of the Dinobots, Grimlock and the other original Dinobots briefly rebelled, leading to Wheeljack sending in a pair of new Dinobots to tame the originals.

During the Movie, Grimlock befriended Wheelie, and helped Hot Rod and Kup escape the Quintesson homeworld, Quintessa.

In Season 3, Grimlock's greatest achievement was the creation of the Technobots, while he was briefly gifted with super-intelligence. He transferred his super-intelligence to the combined Technobot, Computron, in the process reverting to normal.

Unlike his comic incarnations, there is little evidence that the cartoon Grimlock was a tactical genius with a speech impediment. Instead, he was merely a "big strong guy" especially in the third season, where he was almost completely reduced to comic relief.

Marvel Overview

Grimlock marvel Grimlock and the other Dinobots were awakened prematurely by the Ark when Shockwave landed in the Savage Land in Antarctica. They fought strongly, but were defeated and sealed in the tar pits there until Ratchet revived them. Grimlock then became a strong ally for the Autobots, his intelligence masked by a speech impediment. While Optimus Prime was missing, supposed dead, Grimlock led the Autobots. He died in battle with an Underbase powered Starscream, but was later revived as a Pretender. Later still, mourning the death of his comrades, he stole their bodies, and sought out the mythical Nucleon. Grimlock also exposed himself to it, gradually undergoing a change into an Action Master.

By Generation 2, Grimlock had seemingly purged himself of the Nucleon's effect that had prevented him from transforming, and he once again served as Optimus Prime's second in command, although he remained a loose cannon likely to take off and do his own thing.

Dreamwave Overview

Grimlock dreamwave
Grimlock was one of Optimus Prime's greatest critics when the new leader first took command of the Autobots, even planning to rebel against him. After Optimus and Megatron vanished, Grimlock headed up one of the splinter factions, the Lightning Strike Coalition. During the Age of Wrath, he took a blast meant for Ultra Magnus, although due to Dreamwave ceasing publication, Grimlock's fate was unknown.

He must have survived, though, as in the present day, Grimlock betrayed Optimus Prime for the Decepticon side, ostensibly because Megatron had the other Dinobots as a bargaining chip. Later, once he got the Dinobots back and revived them, Grimlock led an assault against Shockwave.

It is also mentioned that at some point in the past, Grimlock fought the Insecticons on Earth.

IDW Overview

Grimlock idw The Dynobots followed Shockwave to Earth in the Shockwave Spotlight issue. Assuming alternate modes more similar to Maximals than the mechanical Dinobots of old, they fought Shockwave to a standstill, until both Shockwave and the Dinobots were trapped. The human group, the Machination, recovered both Shockwave and the Dinobots in the present day. On reactivation, Grimlock broke free of their control and went after Scorponok.

He will play a pivotal role in the upcoming Maximum Dinobots.

Fun Publications

In the Transformers Club Magazine segments, Grimlock appears once again as Optimus Prime's right hand 'bot, having purged himself of the Nucleon and upgraded his systems.

His biography, published in the club magazine, mentions that in the time between Marvel's Issue 80 and Fun Publications' story, Grimlock set out to hunt down the remaining Decepticons led by Bludgeon, before heading to Earth to join the fight with the reborn Megatron.
