    If this is true, and not just a hoax (coming through 4chan first is a bit suspect, although that looks to be a fairly legitimate amount of design work done for a simple prank, and looks to be keeping the MMC's general sense of style quite well)... oh god, not another set of Dinobots to collect. I do find the IDW dinos to be pretty neat, though, as their own thing.

    It's from some guy who claims he's friends with one of the designers. There's a similar image with an older design for Megatron

    Doesn't looks like IDW Grimlock to me :p 

    [edit:] Seems like I made a mistake. I've looked at my MTMTE comic books and it does look way more like Grimlock than I would have thought. Somehow I had a totally different picture of him in my mind.

    Thanks @Bountyan! Looks pretty good, but I'll wait for confirmation from MMC before hyping this up.

    Man I hope not, there's way too many 3rd party grimlocks on the market and so many other characters I feel they should do first. Personal opinion of course

    That does look like IDW Grimlock and it would be cool since nobody else has done it. That head/neck in dino mode looks pretty bad though.

    I thought the same about 3P Megatrons and then I got Tyranatron in hand.

    If MMC do a Milne Grimlock then it's DONE. And I'm in.

    how big it might be? I wish it can be fit with CHUG line, since I already have the FT dinobots, don't need a new one for my MP collection.
    For CHUG, I didn't find a decent Grimlock yet, so I'm using the MP08 for now. (I don't like FOC Grimlock's look or FPJ Grimlock, so didn't buy those).

    Not a fan. Doesn't really capture the art well at all, and what is even up with the dino mode...? The long tail is a real turnoff and I don't even know what's going on with the T-Rex head.

    I will be keeping an eye on this. Looking at the difference between the design and finish of their Megatron, i can see the designed morphing by the final design. At least when TFCon DC comes we may get confirmation

    Color me intrigued. The dino mode looks much more reflective of how we now believe a T-Rex carried it self than any of the other versions out there. I like it.
