    given their current releases that visited IDW comics , I’m led to believe this would be their take on IDW Grimlock. Might be wrong and this could be transmetal Megs for all I know , as no details are given besides this silhouette 5E2D27ED-E210-44D0-BDF9-82F4D5EC4C1F.jpeg
    Updated 25/10/2020 as further info from tfcon2020
    PX-C04 Cacus, releasing in Jan2021!
    27cm tall! Taller than Ismenios and Kadmos!

    I know it is just a silhouette, but those dino mode feet don't look good as they are.

    God damn't...yet another PX release to put off the potentially superior MMC version. Still pissed about D-zef getting delayed for the PX Dezaras.

    I haven't really followed D-Zef (I always preferred the PX one), but MMC has done a thorough job of forgetting about their Grimlock without any help from any other company.

    And now they will forget completely, and we'll be left with an IDW Grimlock with a typically bad PX headsculpt. Kadmos' funny head is the reason why PX needs to stop making toys until they can hire someone who knows how to do heads.

    I'm still pretty certain that D-Zef was just announced to early. MMC announced D-Zef after Planet X announced Ismenios. Seems more like they were saying "hey! We are making this guy eventually too"
    But goddamn I want MMC Trux.

    Possibly, or just using a lot of the design ideas/choices in Ismenios.

    I love PX, but can't someone give me some actual Scavengers, please? Like a Voyager size Spinister, Fulcrum... anybody?

    Well this is neat. :)  If MMC isn't going to release their IDW Grimlock in the end then this is the next best thing.

    I hope this will be IDW Grimlock.

    Here’s hoping for a great headsculpt, too. Primus knows it’ll be better than MMC’s version from the neck down.

    Hurts saying that, because I love MMC.

    Sad though that it isn’t one of the badly needed IDW fembots.

    I think we'll get there by next year at the very least. Maybe if some of the 3P fembots coming down the pipeline this year do well (Fanshobby Minerva, She Who Shall Not Be Named), we'll start seeing more.

    It might sound dumb, but I kind of would like an Aileron.

    From the looks of it it's without a doubt IDW Grimlock. Hopefully it's a sign that they'll also do the other IDW Dinobots including the new member Strafe. Would be cool if we're able to get BW Megatron out of him too somehow.

    As for the fembots I'm sure they'll arrive sooner or later. PX knows how IDW is still popular with people and most of their fembots are popular enough to warrant it. I know I'd love to see them do a Windblade that's Sarah Stone inspired in her design from them. :D

    I was literally just looking at my Vulcan the other day and thinking "man, they could easily use similar engineering to make a more G1 or IDW version. That would be cool."

    And, uh, here we are

    Damn, I already have vulcan in two colors but I would totally buy and IDW grimlock. I really hope there is no parts forming like MMC's tail weapon thing on their grimlock.

    I've been thinking of getting Ismenios but I like having all my options available. IMO MMC's D-zef is looking a bit too chubby, but it would be nice to have at least an unpainted prototype at this point. Oh well.

    edit: there is an unpainted prototype, whoops. but I need to see more angles on that alt mode!

    I agree with you on Kadmos' head sculpt, but they did a 180 on Ismenios. Here's hoping their grimlcock (if it is grim) turns out like Ismenios lol.

    I love my Ismenios, though he is a bit loose now, but I have grown to dislike the head sculpt. Not so much the face sculpt, but the look of the overall head, it's not as dynamic as it's IDW source. I do believe Ismenios is better than MMC's version, but I do feel as if neither even come close to just how expressive his dragon mode it; one is more akind to his G1 death chicken mode, the other a square cockroach.

    I hope this Grimlock is a bit more lively, PX can make a good product, but I think we can agree in saying they can make an even better product, they just need to work for it.

    I really wish swappable faces would be the standard for high end 3P figures (not just mp style). I think the two deathsaurus head sculpts are fine, but when you're talking IDW there are just so many expressions that could be referenced. Even for Deathsaurus, who barely had an impact on the story..

    If it's IDW Grimlock I'm in. We already know Planet X can do a good Grimlock, after all.

    Sorry MMC. You snooze you lose.

    So apparently we’re forgetting the dozens of headsculpts they got right, or the engineering wizardry they’ve pulled, solely because they put the eyes two millimeters in the wrong place?
