    You all who are finding these are lucky! My Walmarts, Targets, and TRU all SUUUUUUUCK. :(  May 17 may be the street date, but all my area stores won't have them out untl much later. Argh! I'm left with BBTS...again. At least I can count on them.

    He looks better than the leader class.

    Any articulation on that thing?

    The mere fact that a Prime Predaking was used it awesome.

    I demand that when someone gets a Voyager Grim we see him facing off against BH Voyager Predaking!

    Only in the arms, but the arms are actually insultingly well articulated compared to the rest of the body: Dino arms swivel 360 degrees, bicep swivel, and an elbow joint that does about 90 degrees.

    Tail pieces move around to facilitate transformation. They can be placed up behind the shoulders, they can hang behind the legs, or they can be re-joined to form a tail. The transformation does use the joint the tail is attached with and swiveling it can activate the automorph.

    Otherwise, he's a brick!

    Grimlock looks awesome despite the lack of articulation

    Did they really give him those curled boot toes but no way for them to be the proper feet?

    Don't you have the legs mistransformed? Pretty sure the single toe is supposed to go in the front not the 3 toes for dino mode.

    Definitely. If you look at him and don't think about posing him he's pretty dynamic and imposing, with a fuller silhouette than the voyager or leader. It's kind of funny, they went for the playskool transformation but the sculpt is not dumbed down from the on-screen design at all.

    Yep, it kills me that the toe spike is back there but there's no joint to put it in front.

    I remember how exciting it was in 2007 when the first movie toys started trinkling out and Bumblebee was hard to find.

    Spotted AOE Grimlock in Missouri (Columbia). Have to agree with those who say (short of the feet) this is a better representation of Grimlock than either the Voyager or the Leader.

    Exactly. And also: Go to the customer service desk to make the request. Then they call back to have someone look, and the attitude of the guy in the back seems to be (often) "Hey, if the customer service desk wants it, who am I to point out a street date."
