    Ah - the neck is still molded to fit the original head. A minor annoyance but I think I can live with it. I don't mind the original head, but since Grimlock essentially has two "character" type modes, this new head is definitely more accurate.

    Just got Grinder on Monday and spent about 10 minutes with it before I packed it up with the other Dinos for the move. Can't wait to have all of these guys on display together!

    It looks like the eye color got a slight change as well. Could just be the lighting, but to me the blue on the new head looks more blue than the original eyes.

    That's a nice toon accurate head, but I'm not sure I need it now. I really like how fierce the normal head is. I may well pick one up then I have the choice.

    Hopefully the X version of the new head is released at the same time the X version comes out.

    I love it, except that the new head leaves a big gap between the cheek and neck now. The original jaw was so massive. But transforming my MP-08 one more time before selling it really made me miss a proper G1 dino head.

    This is probably a terrible place to say it (with most people here being a fan of Grimlock), but I think people can have some pretty wild fun displaying the old dino head once they install the new one.

    The proporion are off now cause the original FT head was bigger along with the big belly, now the G1 head is smaller so looks like Beetlejuice shrunken head.
