    Nice teaser. Definitely a toon centric approach with body proportions vs toy proportions, as well as the gold "collar"

    It looks like he's sleepwalking.

    Interesting another Grimlock tease....I remember GigaPower teased us during new years with a happy new years cgi prototype bust of him as well. Looking forward to more info seems like GigaPower is trying to push the dinos sooner than later!

    Cool! Looks promising so far. If it turns out as good as their Slag or better, it's bought. If not, OS KO MP8 is doing quite well as my MP Grimlock already.

    Looks really nice. I love the curvature of the dino mode.

    Hating the knee joint in Dino mode !!!
    And I get it !! They're doing that chicken-bird-movie starscream leg thing !!!
    It's like they want him to have dog legs or cat legs or something to that degree !!! Just looks wrong to me.

    Good news for me is looks like I'll definately be able to straighten out the legs !!!
    Can't wait to see more !!! Need these Dinos !!!

    Looks really good and definitely looking forward to completing the powerful Dinobots.

    Hmm...I've got to say I'm not really feeling it at the moment. I think I actually prefer FTs Grinder.
    But I cant wait to see a properly posed pic with t-rex arms bent, legs straightened and some colour.

    Giga's change of direction is becoming more and more obvious. After Guttur and Grassor they seem to replicate what others have been doing from the start by focussing more on the toon appearance of the Dinobots. Reximus Prime may be the way to go for Giga purists. I like the T-Rex head on this one. (Hopefully this is what the replacement head for FT Grinder will look like!) The body...? Not much to to say about that at the moment, but it is indeed shaped like a banana! :D

    Well at least they got the head right, everything else is pretty MEH, just like every other thing Giga does!
