Chomp and stomp grimlock has more articulation than reviews let on.

    But only a bit more.

    Mine arrived today, and I've been playing with him. All the advance reviews I've seen only mention his elbow joints as his only articulation. But he also has full fledged elbow swivels, I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned.

    But also of not, his Shoulders do swing outward, but as they are on springs, they snap right back. I wonder if at some point Hasbro was going to put them on Ratchets, but decided against it to cut costs or not complicate the transform scheme.

    With these points in mind, I was able to angle his arms outward and wedge the shoulders against his breastplate, to get a wider pose out of him. And if I can figure out an easy way to mod or jury rig the shoulders to not spring back in, I might get more poses out of him.

    Why? I'd rather a new mold be made entirely. Back to the point my 5 year old cousin will love this grimlock

    If that thing had decent leg articulation, I'd be all over it.

    I wish it was in movie accurate colors. One giant gunmetal Dinobot isn't going to be a bad thing on shelves, but good lord, it's the only scale accurate Grimlock in the entire line, for crying out loud. Leader Grimlock would still be too short when posed with a Voyager Optimus, after all.
