    Got the set preordered last night. Regardless of how the paint looks it's just nice to finally have a BW Grimlock that won't fall apart on you this time around.

    You'd think that, meanwhile over in the BW IDW comic discussion there are people who have been complaining for months that Nyx and Skold are new characters instead of two toy-only figures.

    If this had been repainted in to a new character, people would be mad it wasn't BW Grimlock.

    What's funny is as a kid I had TM Megatron, Grimlock, Torca, and Magnaboss. Yet all four survived (thus far) and now as an adult I am terrified to transform ANY of them. I recognize I am extremely lucky and am not looking forward to the time when I have to pack them up/move them again.

    Because they got so many preorders. Makes you wonder if they can fulfill them since it's Amazon.

    I believe the point they're making is that for all the complaints in this thread, the set has sold out and restocked more than once on Pulse and is now the top toy on Amazon.

    So clearly HasTak knows what they're doing.

    What are we missing here? Cow spots and one of the worst cases of Gold Plastic Syndrome to date?

    Ready? I’m going to tell you a big secret.

    that’s what we’ve got

    Oh, real mature.

    Well it makes sense, cows are the evolutionary descendants to raptors after all.

    I pre-order this set on Amazon. I am excited for both these figures! Let's hope my pre-order gets fulfilled.

    I want fully accurate dinosaurs complete with whatever chicken/goose honk roar the most recent discoveries suggest they made.

    Wormholes.

    You don’t have to like the original paint scheme to acknowledge that the new figure doesn’t come close to matching it.

    Just for fun I did my own digibash based a bit more on the impression Grimlock gives in the package art, and also balancing out his leg colors. That was definitely fun.

    I'm done with complaining about the toy, so don't view this upload as being a complaint / comparison. Just felt good to finish the image and share with ppl. Would love to hear if anyone actually likes it though.
