    Not really. I have no connection to it and it's not an interesting design. I buy a lot if figures that I have no connection with because they have interesting designs. The FOC Grimlock retool is more then good enough for me.
    I would LOVE a blue repaint, a SG version and/or, better yet, a tiger stripe version (I love that deco)!

    RID, as in the abomination that is lied to have been a continuation of the best transformers show, Transformers Prime.

    Say what you will about the show and the way they portrayed Grimlock in it, but I loved the figure TakTom made from the Voyager FOC Cybetron mold, and would be ecstatic to see the same remolding done on this guy as well.

    I totally agree. they really did a great job with the retool where aside for the transformation, it feels like its 100% a different figure.

    Yup, and for the record I HATED RID's handling of Grimlock. Not so much the character himself, but the fact that he just wasn't the badass that I wanted him to be, and the TakTom toy of him remedied that for me. :lol

    it isn't that bad if you just don't consider him Grimlock. in my own world, I refer to him as Dreadlock

    I never considered him to be THE Grimlock, but he was supposed to be the muscle of the team, and it seemed that against Decepticons, he wasn't any stronger than any of them.

    Really bums me out that I only found out about this guy a couple weeks ago and he’s literally no where to be found. *Sighs*

    Anyone got any tips? Or got one they’re willing to part ways with? I got dead presidents on deck.

    I know that’s always an option but I’d much rather have the original non-metallic version.

    Wait, why not the metallic version, the more game accurate and superior figure ?

    I figure it’s probably easier to find, and that it would also be the one people are more willing to part ways with.

    What makes the metallic version more game accurate? Did they alter paint operations?

    Is it bad that I messaged Planet X directly inquiring if they’d re-release Grimlock in the future? :cry  I’m already planning on buying the other 4, I just need Grimlock to seal the deal.

    I'm selling one right now. I have a potential buyer at the moment but if that falls through you'd be next. If you don't find one elsewhere that is.
