    This Grimlock is the most cartoon accurate if you ask me.
    I'll wait for MFT to KO it.
    Because this guy is too small for my Legends collection.
    I need Oversized :D

    This is still a ways out. Snarl and Soundwave look to be the next DX9 releases and we haven't seen final versions of either yet.

    It's odd, as TCP still has him listed for arrival next week, thorner the week after. I know dates are fluid, but usually they update if it's that close and the item isn't inbound.

    I'll be honest I've gotten so bored with these I forgot I even had this still on order.

    Yep, they need to strike while the iron is hot. It seems a little bizarre that they released half the dinbots then released the seekers before completing the dinos.

    They are a strange Company, very like the old IGear in terms of that sort of thing. I think they wanted to recoup on their Seeker Design before Iron Factory grabbed most of that market with theirs.

    Sludge and Slag are good for what they are but I'm thinking that I'm actually perfectly happy with the Warbo Grimlock for my G1 fix (and it's a bit more posable than this thing will be) so do I really need it? Or a complete Dino team for that matter.

    You're right, they should have struck a lot quicker.

    I'm still in for their Grimlock and Snarl. Their other dinos are among my favorite legends figures to date.

    I haven't even opened the first three yet. Waiting for the whole team so that I can enjoy them together for the first time.

    No one else is releasing legends dinobots right now but IF is releasing seekers and coneheads. Their shift in production order makes sense. Plus, most buyers of the first three are in for the other two so dx9 does not need to rush those now.

    And if they can avoid repeating the issues with Swoop and Sludge it is worth the extra wait.

    Looks superb so far! In fact, this *might* have the best overall proportions of any G1 Grimlock -- MP included. But it's still too early to make any final determination. C'mon DX9 -- more pics please!

    I'm impatient for this guy, but I don't mind waiting if it means getting him just right. It's Grimlock after all!
