    He looks amazing! Funny how the sculpt is exactly the same, but I'm completely sold on this guy. Is the chest reflective chrome, like on the Hasbro one?

    Looks so much better than the regular release! The subdued color palette really does wonders to this mold.

    The deco doesn't save that awful T-Rex mode, but it does soften the blow a bit. If I was to get a Leader Grimlock, it'd definitely be this one, but I just can't get past how bad the T-Rex looks, even with the better deco's help. Although even the better deco leaves the T-Rex head looking bland. It would've looked far better with more variation in the head colour.

    Thanks for the review and great pics!

    if it weren't for that hideous orange I would be all for it. the way it is, I think I would need both this and the regular version to make the grimlock I want.

    Thanks for the review!

    The orange/copper bits do look kinda out of place. Maybe if they were a more subdued gold color. Otherwise it's quite nice.

    I like how the orange is mostly hidden in dinobot mode. This is definitely more screen accurate at least in dinobot mode. Even though it is less colorful, the detailed sculpt still shows.

    Is there any issues with the paint scratching or chipping off anywhere? ??????
