Generations Voyagers Wave 2 In Package Pics and Bios

Posted on 12-13-2012 at 08:52 AM by ORIO under Generations / Classics
Grimlock4
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has updated their preorder listings for the upcoming second wave of voyager figures from Generations Fall of Cybertron. This wave is comprised of Blaster and the highly anticipated Grimlock. These new in package pics also gives us the character's bios:

Grimlock
"There was a time when the rage that boils inside Grimlock would have driven him straight to the ranks of the Decepticons. But while his flawed manner of speaking may make him sound strange, he's smart enough to recognize a bully when he sees one - and Grimlock doesn't like bullies. It's this that fuels his dedication to fight against the Decepticons."

Blaster
"Autobot Blaster has amassed an incredible amount of music from across the galaxy. From hundreds of worlds he's gathered the loudest, fastest, most brutal, ear splitting guitar shredding rock-and-roll he could find. When you charge into battle alongside Autobot Blaster, you are accompanied with a thunderous soundtrack of which the mightiest viking would approve"

Best looking FOC figure so far!
Cant wait to see size comparisons!
Feralstorm
Looks like Grimlock may be similar in height (at the head) to Blaster, who presumably is similar in height to Soundwave, which hopefully translates to BIG.

Looking pretty nice so far, though I'll admit I'd prefer a more geewunny color scheme for Grimmy (red pelvis, black thighs & hands)
Deonasis
Great bios..
Grimlock - i love the anti-bully.. ness
Blaster - Picturing viking Autobots FTW!

Also, Blaster actually comes with a gun (unlike Swave/Sblaster). And the pics still make me fear Grimlock's tail is crap.

Anyone else find it funny that Grimlock has a higher intelligence than Blaster?

Definitely getting both.

I did notice that. Apparently not going with the G1 cartoon persona.

Everyone knows FOC Grimlock is only as smart as 'player one'
Harbinger
well, i might have to try to get me a FoC Grimlock now. but to wait and hope it shows up normally in Australian stores or just buy it online...

Well, he was supposedly a great military leader and tactician who now has a speech impediment. Or least I think that is the way they are angling him lately in the fiction.

Both are bought on sight with Grim as a x2 due to my son needing him some dinobots as well.

Blaster actually looks a lot better than I expected. It may just fit into my classics collection.

Actually he was always an angry guy, but in FOC Shockwave's experiments sacrificed intelligence for other functions, so as the level goes on, he stops being able to talk properly as it affects him, until his last line is a typical G1 Grimlock line.
The intelligence doesn't reflect his FOC character, I don't know why they have it so high.
Onslaught24
Definitely getting both now
Digilaut
Grimlock looks way awesome. Blaster looks okay, will have to see some out of the box pictures of him for sure, to see if the stripes on his arms are glaring white or a dimmed silver. I prefer the latter option.
Stepper
Wow Grimlock is in Voyager size,very in scale.
Cracka J
dig these very much. hopefully we start getting voyager sw and sb here in the states soon, and these guys not too far after.
Grimlockimus
Grimlock looks pretty damn good. Glad I pre-ordered one for the holidays
PoweredConvoy
Grimlock has always had an Intelligence of a 7 (or at least more often then not).

When is BBTS getting these guys?
Omega Charge
Grimlock...

The Asian Market gets theirs a bit earlier, and by a bit I mean 7-8 weeks. Soundwave came out awhile ago overseas and BBTS has yet to get them in stock yet.

If you want Grimlock that badly (like I did) your best bet is to order one now.
Autobot Burnout
Both are so very, very high on my want list. They're really the only FOC toys that still interest me at this point aside from the Combaticons, who I have not been able to acquire due to my college not being anywhere near a retail store.

Grimlock especially interests me, since he's pretty much the Classics Grimlock everybody has wanted and he comes with both the huge-ass sword AND a bruiser shield. That's just awesome.

Grimlock looks a lot less...shiny.
Robogeek28
Oh Grimlock, you sexy beast you!

That's because at SDCC they have people hand paint them. You can look at the product, just not the "finished" one. Grimlock looks nice though!

EDIT
I wish they put more paint on him. He looks kind of bland. Plus, his arms aren't game accurate. That's a nitpick though.
MetalicGrunt
Blaster = Combat to a Soundtrack, EPIC!
zebramatt
I preordered Grimlock from RK months and months ago so hopefully he'll show his face soon!
fallen_revenge
Grimlock = Epic

Luckily for you there is a nice thing called the Takara version, which will no doubt be much shinier and look more like the SDCC version.
charsdc2
Me Grimlock is a must buy!
Acheron
Wooooow, a Techno Viking reference in Blaster's bio. Wooow. I have indeed seen what they did there.
Starfire22
Hello Classics blaster.

Also, grimlock looks awesome.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Blaster is a 50-50 buy. Grimlock is a definite one.
OptionZero
Imagine how awesome Takara Grimlock will be with metallic paint
Bossguy
60 bucks is a bit steep for something that is voyager sized.. I know most grimlock fans will by the takara version, but the us version is for me.
Starfire22
What's with these people wanting shiny paint?

Just enjoy the actual toy.

I ususally don't import TT figs though.

I just was hoping that more of the bronze ended up being paint. Will wait excitedly for in hand pics.
Metroplex79
I'll be getting them......when they go on sale.

(hey, I have a big collection, and it wasn't because I bought everything at regular price)
goodapollo4
I just cant decide...Do I want to wait for, if history repeats itself, months and months for these guys to make their way to regular Canadian retail...Or....Do I dare just go all in and pick them both up?
peaces
grimlock is definitely worth waiting for a takara version.
Ratchets Hatch
I love Grimlock's packaging and box art. And he looks to be one of the best Voyagers in a long time. Definitely going to pick him up.
Ravenxl7
Grimlock looks great. I might get him...but I'm still not sure. Blaster doesn't look bad, but he won't be hard to pass on.

I probably shouldn't worry about this, but...I can't help but notice that neither of Grimlock's accessories are noticeable in this packaging shot...The shield I really couldn't care less about, but it would kinda suck if he didn't come with at least his sword.
Megatron31
Looks great can't wait for a review
Smashs
Pretty sure an actual *squee* noise just came out of me.
Molina00
The paint seems a little bland but otherwise Grimlock looks great. Blaster is a little meh, but I'll be getting both. Hopefully I can find a Soundblaster at retail eventually to off-set Blaster on the shelf.
Ezilla82
Like the picture of Futurama's Fry with cash saying this, "Shut up and take my money!" Instant buys for me.
peaces
i wonder how downgraded his weapons will be.
Primal Sabbath
Must... Have... Grimlock... So happy he's packed 3 per case.

I know. I'm picturing a hollowed out sword. Ugh. I hope Dr. Wu makes an upgrade kit for him.
juise
I'm so getting Grimlock! Funny thing is he'll end up on my Island of Misfit Toys since MP Grimlock is in perfect scale with classics.
