    I hope we get the G2 deco of Grimlock on another Grimlock figure.

    Oh shit... NEED! But I was hoping that it was the full scale ConstructBor in Silver and Red, THAT would be epic!

    Oh, this is a new sighting! I actually found these at the Target in downtown Minneapolis on Wednesday, but didn't know it was new. Good job!

    Not an improvement. Originals are awesome, though, and recommended.

    Shouldn't he be all blue to be G2 colors or was there another version?

    I know he still had some gold on him too though.

    The released G2 Grimlock was blueeee all over.

    This is based off of the color scheme we've only seen mockup art for, same goes for the Walmart exclusive Strafe Constructabot set (based on mockup G2 Swoop art).

    If you shop at Target, I hope you can get a Target card to save 5% off on every purchase.

    And if you have the Target card, you can order this guy online w/ free ship, saving yourself the drive (and/or disappointment when not in stock).

    I don't think he'll be too hard to pick up in store (eventually in your area), though, considering how the Construct Bots don't seem to move much. I'm waiting to see him on a weekly grocery trip or something. [shrug]

    The minifigs are paintmarker friendly. Good cheap candidates to paint up or practice on.
    Grimlock looks loads better with his teeth & chest brows painted silver.

    AoE is a nice fit for these and they seem to be selling well now around here. CJ & TC are still everywhere.

    I saw this set in Medford, OR last night. I debated it because I love that unreleased deco for Grimlock, but I don't want to get into this line.
