    Since we're all talkin about Grimlock I was wondering if you guys think Animated Grimlock would be a good stand in for Aligned Grimlock. I've been really back and forth on the new voyager.

    While Animated Grimlock is probably the more solid of the two toys, there is absolutely no way the Animated aesthetic will work with the Aligned aesthetic. IMHO.

    So, I say FoC Grimlock. Just be aware that he's got quite a few flaws.

    I've tried shoe-horning my Animated Grimlock on my TFP/Aligned shelf, but he just doesn't work. FOC works with TFP, FOC, and Classics, but Animated works with, well, just Animated :lol .

    Maketoys Battletanker's double barred gun is pretty sweet in Grimlocks hands.

    Indeed. I have been putting my FOC Big F'in Gun on Masterpiece Sideswipe, but it would look good on FOC Grimlock.

    I'd love to see an inexpensive add-on kit that could take care of the hollow dino belly and the lack of robot mode gun.

    I still don't understand why people are upset about the hollow chest. It's only noticable if you look at the dino mode from below. That's not how I display him. Also the economy is in the pooper so of course some things are going to get cut. Besides, robot mode uses that chest well for hiding the dino head.

    Classics Jetfire gun looks pretty cool I think, and similar to the original.
