How the hell has a third party not made new hands for the raptors? The default ones look god awful.
There is this, although it's 3D printed. New hands and a bunch of gap fillers.
I find it hilarious that they just made them pointy. Still all the same flaws to make for terrible looking hands, but sharper.
It really is a shame. The robot mode legs are just hideous. Nothing about this toy aside form the headsculpt feels thought-out or well implemented.
BW Grimlock and Cheetor were my first two TF toys ever and I really wish this figure had more effort put into it. I was already debating skipping it since it comes with a Mirage I don't want, but Grimlock himself being such a poor redeco kills it for me.
The beast mode seems to have had the most thought put into it because it does look more coherent than Dinobots, even if it doesn't quite look like BW Grimlock did
Still getting this, but damn....Grimlock really doesn't look too good to me in those pics.
The headsculpt sure is nice but that figure is a hot mess overall. Just a bunch of crap thrown together randomly. It's really strange they way they designed the plastic layouts on this mold.
That’s replacing ugly long fingers with unreasonably short fingers that still look terrible. I was hoping someone would just straight up make new arms or hands that transform to fit the backpack without sacrificing the Dino hands
Still looking preeeetty lame.
Yeah, the correct length is somewhere in between, and they're still bent at a hideous 90 degree angle. There should be a joint in the hand itself for a more natural-looking bend, if not entirely new arms like you said.
Is it just the name thats killing it for some? Cuz I think That dino mode looks FANTASTIC.
The dino mode looks great, although not the same as the original deco, which I would personally argue is cooler.
It’s the deco on the bot mode that sucks.
I think fantastic is a bit much for me. It's better than robot mode, but it still looks like random pieces are cast in different colours without any paint work to imply a sort of two-tone skin colour.
It honestly just looks unfinished in both modes. I really wish we had gotten the dalmatian raptor, because this toy honestly isn't very appealing in either form.
I kinda wonder if those working deco for Maximal Grimlock were in conflict between recreating the look of the BW toy and homaging gray G1 Grimlock. Either that or someone in charge just went "Cow spots on a dinosaur? Naw, that's dumb, brah, Patchy gray bullcrap is where it's at!"
Why couldn’t they just have had him as an all white dinomode with blue painted spots like the original figure? Seriously this is one ugly MFER
Man, I had really hoped Grimlock's final chest deco would look like the package art. This is one of the worst cases of "final colors may vary" I've seen in a long time.
The sheer coolness of the head and the fact I don't have Mirage yet more than makes up for his odd lower legs. Will grab it.
Grimlocks head would be great for a generic predacon soldier, say if the Beast Wars exploded out of control and began to resemble the Great War in size and scale and Megatron needed Dinotroopers.
I might get Grimlock and customize him. Can’t stand how boring he looks
Hasbro must have had a contest among themselves on who can paint Dinobot in the ugliest way possible. And this was the winner.
