    So I've seen this at my Toys R Us every time I go there, and while I know people's opinions on the Energon Grimlock figure and that it's supposed to combine with Energon Swoop I still have the question: is the set worth it? I already have the AOE Voyager Grimlock and I wouldn't really mind double dipping on it, but do you guys think that set is worth the asking price, especially considering that my TRU doesn't ever put Transformers figures on clearance?

    I think it is, mostly because the Energon Grimlock was nostalgic for me and I had to have it. Plus, it has a pretty good looking G1 colorscheme and a sword which seems to have belonged to a G1 Predacon. It is a flawed toy, but I still like it.

    And the AOE Grimlock is pretty awesome too. Looking at pictures of him and the regular retail version, he has some extra black details on him that make him look better.

    $20 for AOE Grimlock is okay, but you're dumping another $20 on a garbage toy when the AOE figure is barely changed from the regular release.

    Seriously, don't bother. Wait for a cooler AOE Grimlock repaint.

    Only if you're a huge Grimlock fan. The Energon Grimlock mold is really REALLY bad.

    It's not that bad. It has imposing proportions, and the right look for G1 Grimlock.

    I was tempted to get the two pack, but since I already have Energon Grimlock in storage somewhere I chose to just get the single Voyager.

    I personally think you won't miss out on anything if you pass on it.
