    I'd also rank it as a 5/10. Love the look of bot mode but dino mode is meh. The rotation for the shoulders doesn't lock into place in bot mode so mine kinda droop forward. Also it would have been nice to get screw covers for his right side since they just re-used the limb molds.

    Same here, I would buy the weaponizer pack.

    I did just find a Planet X G2 Grimlock, so this is less on my radar now.

    I know Gcreations did a great job with there IDW MP Sixshot and I love my DX9 G1 version but Hexatron is still my IDW Sixshot in My Display and looks great with the rest of My Reformatted collection and next to Unique Toys Ordin.

    Alt mode pic from Byrin today. Please note the deco is in no way at all finalized or representative of the final design.

    Though I have indeed advised we coat him in as much silver as possible and ideally we're going to try a two-tone approach and see how that turns out when we begin testing.

    Here you can also see more clearly the revised dino legs/robot arms and the entirely new beast head/neck assembly Makoto made for him that is far more accurate to the comics and has the more organic Trex shape to it.

    Me too, I don't think even that's been finalized yet but safe to assume he'll be fairly large like Mors n Dzef.

    Asking the real questions! Wildly expressive tail articulation would be awesome. If he has a wide range of ankle rocker, ratcheted thighs, and double knee bend I'd get multiples just for alt mode. He looks great.

    Looks great! But I have all the FP Dinos as my Dinobot team, so I'm more interested in seeing a potential BW Megatron repaint.

    dino mode looks great overall and much improved but there is soemthing going on with the eyes and bro ridge area that isn't quite right. also are yellow dino eyes canon in IDW? i feel like they should be red or blue. just my opinion. love this thing in both modes. looking forward to it. i don['t even collect reformatted anymore but i feel like it'd go well with just about any collection.

    Looks like we'll be having an IDW Grimlock battle between MMC and Planet X:duel .
