    I'm going to need this in G2 colors, thank you very much. I want this, but my personal limitations of collecting 3rd party grimlocks limits it!

    If I were to hazzard a guess…. The thread was started in 2017 with the first teaser. Considering that the new interest is because of new design art suggest that we're not even in the prototype stage yet, but still in the design stage. So...2021 if we're very lucky?!

    It's crazy how much the new forearms improve the look of the whole design. I know more was done, but damn.

    Nitpicking, I know, but the elbows on the model aren't anything like the comic ones and his claws are facing the wrong way when folded onto his forearms.

    MMC posted a tentative schedule back in the beginning of March. If it's anything to go by, 2020 is pretty much spoken for, and the queue probably goes well into 2021.
    Mastermind Creations on Twitter
    The first two on the list shipped about a month later than the estimates, and Mors, the third one, presumably is on track to do about the same. If the trend continues beyond that, MMC might be booked through September for those 5 figures.

    What seems likeliest to me for the rest of 2020, if not even into early 2021:
    • Tortor (Sept/October)
    • D-Zef & D-Zef C
    • TFCon Toronto (Sept) and TFCon Chicago (Oct) exclusives
    • Kultur, Anarchus, Cynicus reissues
    Then in 2021:
    • Mnemo + Rewind
    • Stellarus Prominon
    I don't think we've seen protos or test shots of anything else, but beyond that, MMC has shown renders of the following, which are probably the candidates for the latter half of 2021:
    • Remix guys
    • Maximas Pro members
    • IF-01
    • Trux
    • Warpath

    Seems accurate. If all goes well it’ll be an awesome line up of toys for the year coming forth.

    oh shit will that Warpath even happen? I thought he was super long gone.

    Glad to see some movement on this!
    Hopefully it's coming sooner rather than later :)

    I'm excited for a proper IDW Grimlock. I just sold my FOC Grimlock with upgrades in anticipation of this figure. I do hope we get a more page accurate sword though.

    Interesting.

    Don't know if it's accurate or not, but it looks good so far.

    Don't get your hopes up.
    The designer is just posting old pics of his designs with the see through look.
    Not new.

    Also, pretty sure this figure was leaked to begin with. Noone was supposed to see it and they had no plans to release it at the time.

    They better release this already.

    I guess if you compare it to that appropriately-sized Optimus figure.

    The only thing I want more than this is a Flame Toys Grimlock.
