    Looks almost like a fusion of IDW and G1.

    I’m just glad this very accurate IDW Grimmy wasn’t cancelled as well.

    I almost wish that first I F figure was done and shipping to retailers so we could see how good (or bad) the figure does.

    Hopefully they’ll return to reformatted, and Grimmy, the last DJD member and Chromy won’t be the last releases we see from them :/

    I doubt MMC will go full on with 3 differing lines.

    If they also fix the dino mode head this is going to be a must buy for me

    This and their Warpath are two figures that I'm absolutely ecstatic for

    I'm still not digging the tail & head kibble just flopping on the back of the robot mode. If it was one or the other fine, but both? Not to my taste.

    Not that this makes it better, but by way of explanation, I think the head kibble is standard for Grimlock. The tail is for the BW Transmetal Megatron remold.

    I don't know if it's buried somewhere, but was it ever mentioned how tall this toy was going to be?

    The designer said around Hexatron height
    I can’t remember how tall he was...

    Damn, the same thing that lessens my excitment for MMC's Deathsaurus is the same thing that bothers me about this Grimlock, both have wonderful bot modes, but lackluster alt modes.

    Hexatron is 10inches to top of his head...to top of shoulders and his back stretch to almost 12 inches. Hexatron is just a slight bit bigger than Planet X Kadmos (Star Saber). So this would be perfect scale IDW Grimlock. Especially if MMC does the Scavengers.

    Wow this thing looks so much better than the original render, and way better than the actual IDW design (at least the few pics in this thread of him). this might be THE grimlock. as far as size, if he is hexatron size...that is like roughly mp optimus height, so this grimlock probably scales really well with the reformatted line in general (assuming it will be in that line). i don't really collect reformatted much anymore but he will look great with any CHUG scaled line with a non slavish to G1 look...although he might even look good with the likes of siege.earthrise etc (which is very g1, but NOT slavish to g1). i think he'd go well with like MT cross dimension stuff too even...who knows.

    Still slightly too inaccurate for me tbh, but it’s not as though I won’t buy it. :D
