    I don't think the US is known for its math prowess.

    Just opened him up but haven’t transformed him yet. The waist joint is pretty tight after a certain point on each side but rotates enough for good poses. The ab crunch is a bit loose though. All the other joints are perfect. I also noticed a few paint scratches on the bottom of his Dino feet and the gold on his neck has a paint blemish but it looks like he got shot there so I think it looks cool. So far I am really impressed with my first ever third party figure.

    It’s part of DC’s Dark Knights Metal series/kick. Where either Bruce has another JL members powers in the Dark Multiverse or he does something to himself. I haven’t read Dark Knights Death Metal (which this is from) but I have read Dark Knights Metal.

    The Batcave caved in, Batman uploaded his consciousness into the mechanical dinosaur, and he proceeded to eat/rend/tear everyone in Arkham Asylum.

    I won't be getting this figure but it looks to be amazing. I have the PX G2 FOC Grimlock and I can't really process how much bigger this is.

    Glad Kato got his first. Mine is still in Fed Ex. Great figure, rough transformation especially with terrible directions. Planet X should use his video.

    Agreeing on the terrible instructions and they’re small AF.

    Also, anyone have any pointers on replacing the hands? Seems like they should just pop/snap off, but I tug on them a bit and they don’t seem to want to pop off.

    I'm surprised we never got a cheeky TM Megatron homage from Vulcun, given that Hasbro teased and never released a retool of FOC Grimlock.

    Bend the hand at an angle until the bit where there's an opening is exposed. Slide it off from there. Putting it on is the same. Again at an angle.. slide it on then straighten the wrist to lock it in place.
